Poker writer Eileen Sutton had already had a distinguished career prior to her “landmark article” that was published on Salon.com, entitled “Poker for Girls: In New York’s male-dominated world of underground poker, I found my true strength.”
That article went viral, however, catapulting Eileen to near-instant fame. My Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast co-host, Bruce Briggs, and I were delighted to have Eileen join us in episode #287 for an interview.
Back in August of 2016, together with my Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast co-host Bruce Briggs, I had the opportunity to interview George Chao.
While you might not be familiar with his name, you’ve surely heard about his company – BBO Poker Tables, where they’ve got a wide variety of great poker tables for sale.
Listen to the interview, which starts at the 7:58-minute mark. A transcript is also available.
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.

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.
Along with my Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast co-host Bruce Briggs, I recently interviewed Remko Rinkema, the Senior Editor at Poker Central. Among the many topics, we of course talked plenty about his background in home games and mixed games – som great stories in here!
Listen to the entirety of Episode 280 of the podcast, which includes the interview with Remko starting at the 19:24-minute mark. You can also read the summarized transcript.
On Episode 278 of the Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast, my co-host, Bruce Briggs, and I interviewed Clare Fitzgerald, the Copy Chief at Casino City.
As she’s relatively new to the poker world, it was quite intriguing to follow her path from “completely unfamiliar” to “very into” the game we all know and love. Listen to the entirety of Episode 278 of the podcast, which includes the interview with Clare starting at the 23:33-minute mark. You can also read the summarized transcript.
