- Remembering Amarillo Slim
This week on the Two Plus Two PokerCast Mike and Adam take a look back at the life of recently passed poker legend Amarillo Slim. They start by connecting with Greg Dinkin, co-author of Slims' biography "Amarillo Slim in a World Full of Fat People" to get some great stories about the fast talking Texan. In the next segment the guys get poker blogger "Short-Stacked Shamus" of HardBoiledPoker.com on the line to hear just how much influence Slim had on the game of poker and popular culture. They follow that up by chatting with the one and only Mike Sexton who shares some more great stories about the late poker icon. In forum static the guys cover a wide array of topics including the attack and resulting shut down of the Two Plus Two forums and of course give away the password for the May 6th Poker Stars VIP Club Invitational for PokerCast listeners.

No thread so I'll make one.
Really enjoyed this episode. Even ignoring the molestation allegations and no-contest plea, Amarillo Slim is a tough character for this kind of remembrance show because it's not all good. Whoever booked the guests did quite well giving us different perspectives and I especially liked the Dinkin interview.
