On this episode of the Bernard Lee Poker Show, Bernard speaks with 2009 World Series of Poker Main Even champion Joe Cada, who remembers his friend, runner up Darvin Moon, who recently passed away.

With people from all over the world playing in the WSOP Main Event, among the people who make the November Nine each year there are often some non-native speakers of English. Vojtěch Růžička, of the Czech Republic, has made the 2016 November Nine.

For that reason, we went the extra mile here at Cardplayer Lifestyle and asked our contributor Libs Foord, a native speaker of Czech, to conduct an interview with Vojtech in his native tongue.
The interview was then translated into English and edited, which leaves you, dear reader, with a fascinating, in-depth portrait of Vojtech’s poker career and his life away from the tables.
