Think back to the most fun you ever had playing poker. Nice, eh?
Well, I recently had an experience that fits that description, playing in $4/$8 Dealer’s Choice mixed games with a group of like-minded poker lovers in the heart of Las Vegas.
I tried to capture the experience in words (and pictures), but to truly understand the joy we had, you have to experience it yourself firsthand. Hopefully, reading this account will encourage you to do just that.
Poker fans already know of Joey Ingram’s long love affair with the great game of Pot Limit Omaha (PLO), but it’s a special privilege to actually sit at a live poker table and mix it up with the grand papi himself.
I had the good fortune of being able to do just that. Let’s just say it was an extremely GTO move. The laughs and memories will stick with me forever. Join me as I fill you in on all the details of what went down.
For far too long melancholy has prevailed with regard to the state of the game of poker. We’ve become so used to pining for the glory days of old that we’re forgetting to take a step back and see that things aren’t so bad anymore.
In fact, as far as we can tell, poker seems to be booming once again. At the outset of the 2017 World Series of Poker, it’s time to take stock, appreciate the buzz surrounding our game, and enjoy the ride!
Together with my co-host Bruce Briggs, I recently had the great pleasure of interviewing ESPN poker commentator and funnyman Norman Chad on episode 282 of the Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast.
We put a lot of time and effort into doing research prior to the interview to ensure that we covered topics not yet explored in-depth via other interviews Norman has done over the years. As such, we were thrilled to get some great laughs and new stories from Norman in this almost hour-long interview.
Listen to the interview, which starts at the 3:45-minute mark. A transcript is also available.
