Bonus Code IGGY On Party Poker, damnit!
One of the first things I blogged about four years ago, when I started this humble poker blog, was the radio show, This American Life, segment entitled "Meet The Pros". The second part of this fine show featured - what else - poker.
I listen to a podcast every evening during my commute home, so I was pretty damn happy to re-listen to this show as it was rebroadcast last week. The show features Phil Gordon, Paul Phillips, Linda Thompson and Mike Lang. I highly recommend it.
Act Two. Know When to Walk Away, Know When to Run.
Ira travels to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker, gets hooked, and tries to figure out what it would mean if he ditched his job in radio to become a professional card player. What he learns: a professional gambler can suffer two heartbreaking losses back-to-back, costing him over $100,000, and moments later, at the casino bar, calculate the million-to-one odds of his unlikely losses...in his head. (26 minutes)
