PocketFivers and the WSOP

Published on Jun 4th, 2007

This week's Podcast features interviews with Aaron "Gotcha55" Kanter and Evan "OakPlayer" Schwartz.

Aaron Kanter first captured worldwide attention when he made the Final Table of the 2005 World Series of Poker Main Event. After his 7-figure win, he went on to a successful live poker career that continues to garner results. Recently, "Gotcha55" has decided to focus more attention on Online Tournaments, and has already gained the respect of the members of our community, along with the #45 Ranking. Aaron has wins in the FTOPS for $94,000, the FullTilt $200k Guaranteed, and a chop in the coveted PokerStars $1 Million Guaranteed for $160,000.

"OakPlayer" Evan Schwartz took the PocketFives.com Open last month by outlasting a field of over 680 players. In his short poker career, he's already had four wins of over $10,000 (including two Seats to major live events). He's currently staying in a house in Las Vegas to be close to the action at the WSOP, where he plans to play several events.

This week's Podcast also features news on PocketFiver "MrSmokey1", who became the youngest person ever to win a World Series of Poker bracelet, at the age of 21 years, 10 days. It appears that PocketFivers could very well break their own profit record set during last year's WSOP.
