A Winner In His Own Right

Published on Mar 21st, 2007

This week's Podcast features an interview with professional poker player Joe Sebok, and an update from PocketFivesLive.com Reporter Courtney Harrington.

Joe Sebok is a graduate of Berkeley and was on his way to business school when a conversation with his father, poker legend Barry Greenstein, radically changed his career. Having grown up in an atmosphere where his father shielded him completely from the game of poker, Joe asked Barry, "Do you think I could've made it as a poker player?" The answer was a resounding yes, and Joe leaped into the profession with a passion.

Joe has spent the majority of his time focusing on No Limit Texas Holdem tournaments, where he has had more success in the last year than most poker players have in a lifetime. His attitude is refreshing and pleasant, and he comes off as a level-headed guy who has faced his share of adversity. You can visit Joe's website at www.joesebok.com.

PocketFivesLive.com has been covering major live events for less than a year, but thanks the hard work of Courtney Harrington, it has quickly gained the respect of live tournament players and media colleagues. Courtney will review some of the most-memorable moments of the World Poker Tour Season, and give us an idea of what to expect for the WPT Championship that will take place in April.
