This week Jim Reid and the gang interview David K Lappin about his life in poker, what he is working on these days, and some scandalous current events! Warning – there is some explicit language during this episode. David talks about his journey as a poker writer, what kinds of games he has been playing lately, what it’s like to be back at the tables, and what he’s looking forward to at the World Series of Poker this summer. We also get into the recent allegations about cheating in the world of poker, and David shares some thoughts on that and about how different poker playing sites and companies can structure their offers and protocols in a more transparent and direct manner.
