Interview with Tony Burns

While I was recently doing media coverage at the World Poker Tour Tournament of Champions in Florida, I got to meet a man named Tony Burns, Tournament Director at the Seminole Hard Rock poker room in Hollywood, Florida. Everyone—players, fellow poker media members—they only had kind words to say about him. He was always walking around with a smile on his face, he was really friendly, and at the time I said to him, “Hey, maybe we can collaborate together in the future?” and he was like, “Sure!”

Together with my Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast co-host Bruce Briggs, I recently had the opportunity to interview him.

Listen to the interview, which starts at the 10:48-minute mark. A transcript is also available.

Get to Know the Poker Media: Paul Oresteen

The latest interviewee in our ongoing Get to Know the Poker Media series is Paul Oresteen.

As with anyone, however, what makes the story unique are the personal elements, and Paul’s story is truly one-of-a-kind.

We have no doubt you’ll enjoy getting to know him better, too.

Interview with Adam Pliska

It’s rare to have the opportunity to interview the CEO of a top poker company. It’s perhaps even rarer to encounter an individual holding that title who is so incredibly and genuinely down to earth.

Adam Pliska fits the description above perfectly. So humble and gracious, it was an absolute pleasure to have a conversation with him about his rise to the top of the World Poker Tour as well as learn more about his personal life.

This is a must-watch video, with transcript also available.
