We attempt to give our listeners an inside view into the world of televised poker on this week's program, as we welcome World Poker Tour Chairman Lyle Berman and GSN Vice President of Programming Kevin Belinkoff.
Although the WPT and GSN have gone their separate ways, both are looking forward to a future packed with televised poker entertainment. Our listeners will learn a bit about the game of poker through the eyes of those who are responsible for bringing it into millions of homes.
We invite our listeners to subscribe to the PocketFives.com Podcast through iTunes. If you have any feedback, please feel free to "Write A Review" of our show by accessing the iTunes Music Store and searching POCKETFIVES.COM. Thank you for your support!

AdamLoebSmall 2015-08-03 13:17:41 @Poker_Hack @OPReport Trust me, I've been hammering the "Yahoo sucks at everything and will suck at this too" line for months ;)
jesswelman 2015-08-03 13:15:08 Since we're chatting #BB17, anybody else think Johnny Mac kind of reminds them of Animal from The Muppets? http://t.co/2s7hMbZszv

OPReport 2015-08-03 13:12:37 @Poker_Hack @AdamLoebSmall Yes, but existing expertise / fan base for season-long fantasy is a big difference that muddles comparison.
AdamLoebSmall 2015-08-03 13:04:06 Amend that...I suppose some European bookmakers were involved, but I don't consider that on par with DK/FD competing with Yahoo/CBS/?? now
AdamLoebSmall 2015-08-03 13:03:17 Noteworthy what's happening now in DFS diverges from poker industry. Poker startups never competed directly with existing gaming giants

Lance_Bradley 2015-08-03 12:39:50 @dave_behr @RemkoMedia @Balsbaugh Would be more than happy to get a notepad deal from @moleskine.
MattGlantz 2015-08-03 12:36:12 @nicholas_palma @SavagePoker @shrpo lol Nick. Notice how they are all ending on the same date. This is a reason for that.
MikeSexton_WPT 2015-08-03 12:34:22 After bombing out of main event at WPT Choctaw, I played the seniors event & although I busted there also, it was a lot of fun. #sofriendly

Lance_Bradley 2015-08-03 12:31:59 @MatthewParvis @jesswelman Watch BB14 and BB16 for master classes in how the game is played.
WiLDmAn_75 2015-08-03 12:30:18 @TabDuchateau just don't think it's a needed change for the big field events that's all. Fine novelty trny. Those 50k chips are a disaster.

WiLDmAn_75 2015-08-03 12:21:23 @TabDuchateau any reason behind having almighty and not just reg? Too many chips imo. Takes longer for dealers and players with short levels

KaraOTR 2015-08-03 12:06:18 I couldn't work the door. I had to lurk unobtrusively & run out when somebody came in. TWICE
