Re: This Week On 2+2 with Doug Polk

Amazing people complain about the globe. I didn't even notice it when I watched.

Re: This Week On 2+2 with Doug Polk

Thanks Doug. Great job all round.


One thing I would say though is that it's interesting how people criticise a fold without knowing the full background of a hand and table history. It is theoretically possible to have such a read that you know that your opponent has the stone cold nuts. If you know you're beat, you're beat. You say you're not capable of making that fold. Maybe you would be if you had the same information.
If his opponent really did have the straight flush, there were two mistakes made in this hand.
Player A showing 77
Player B admitting he had the SF.

This is a once in a lifetime situation, I would imagine, so applying an argument based on sample size is moot.

Once again though, love the show. Perfect length at around 15 minutes, BTW.

Nicely done. Presentation style is improving: you swayed from side to side not at all. Wardrobe is better too, although we could not read the entire message on your t-shirt. Massive props to you for calling out specific tankers, as well as complimenting Sands for improving. Far too many podcasts seem terrified of actually being honest and critical about what they see.

Re: This Week On 2+2 with Doug Polk

Perhaps I should write it out properly for you. It's amazing that people complain. gfy.

Doug, did you try the drinking water thing that someone mentioned after the first episode? This ep was pretty bad for what that was set out to help.

The things that have happened Doug since DNegs made those comments are more price increases. In that time stars has announced increased rake in spin n gos (except $60s/100s) as well as now raking rebuy mtts/sngs.

The side to side thing needed to be fixed, glad we fixed it. The message on the shirt is probably not going to be reasonable to always be able to see. Thanks for the comments.

I did, I try to drink water in between takes to help with overall audio quality.

On another note guys, we are going to start having the first post updated to the latest episode of polkernews, so you don't have to dig through the thread.

I have to say that I thought that the original was pretty good. However, the improvement from then to this episode is amazing. You are balancing your news/cynical humor range very nicely.

Well done. As an old school player not in love with the headphone/hoodie crowd I am impressed with your presence.

Good start to making poker fun again - you might just lure this dead money back to the tables yet.
