What...a...show! If you have ANY interest in the game of poker whatsoever...this episode is for you! Jaime Staples, professional poker star with over 100K Twitch followers and net winnings of over $1M joined the guys for a discussion covering all things poker. We talked about how Jaime & his brother won a $150K prop bet, how Jaime became a successful full-time poker player and is "living the dream", game basics and high-level strategies, the skyrocketing growth of online poker, his biggest "cashes" and "beats", Jaime's passion for being a poker ambassador and so much more. BS was off romancing TLK for their 10-year wedding anniversary, so the now infamous Mark Taylor (Ep 004 & GA 02) joined the crew adding some great perspective. PJ needs to go to space before he drives us crazy, and DD can't make sense of the word "vlogger". Music for this episode by ABBA!!!

Ep 18 - Is Phil Ivey Broke??? Plus Twitch King Jaime Staples, Listener DMs, And Online Nostalgia
On today's episode we talk about some poker world drama- is Linus Loeliger a cheater and why was Phil Ivey backed for a $50k? We get emotional talking about Ivey and how awesome he is and how sad we'd be if he's actually broke. We then tackle listener DMs- how not to be "scared money" and Jake's path to being a successful poker pro. After some online nostalgia, we are joined by Twitch Gawd and prop bet master Jaime Staples. We talk the Twitch life and winning a $150k weight loss bet. Finally, we chat about live tournaments being played online until the money. It's a good one, enjoy!
James and Joe are back after a three-week break, which means there's plenty to talk about, including the recent #EPTSochi live stream, which had its highlights (Appendix Guy) and lowlights (Igor Kurganov's pathetic attempts at performing the 'Chop Pot' song). Meanwhile, Joe tells some behind-the-scenes tales from his new TV show, including the story of 'The Spaghetti Sauce Incident'! The boys also discuss the amazing achievement of the Staples brothers, and check in with Jaime, now that the #UltimateSweat is receiving mainstream media attention, and has resulted in a NEW year-long bet. There are details of the #SundayMillion 12th Anniversary: Take 2 and the next $500 #PokerInTheEars freeroll. Plus, Jordan Cameron from Montreal answers questions about the comedy classic 'Caddyshack' in this week's edition of 'Superfan vs Stapes'.
