The end of the Pokercast??

I sure hope not, but it's not looking good...

I’m actually surprised it can’t be sold as a going concern

Re: The end of the Pokercast??

If Adam doesn't have time to do the show anymore, why couldn't 2+2 just hire a new cohost the same way they did when Mike left?

It doesn't seem like Adam has been that interested in the poker scene in quite a while in any case. Failing the cover the WSOP right now seems like a big missed opportunity.

The end of the Pokercast??

There are podcasts popping up all over the place and I bet most of them only have a fraction of the listeners of the Pokercast

Amazing they may not get to show 500

Sad to say I have listened to every show and some of the older stuff they did as well, 2 hours of dog walking a day gives you plenty of listening time....

Isn't Adam in Vegas playing the WSOP right now? Tweets from a couple days ago indicate he was. Maybe the case is he's so interested being in the poker scene that he doesn't have time to podcast?

Can you be a professional poker player if you lose every time you sit down? Asking for a fiend…
As long as your "friend" doesn't have a day job, he can lose as often as he wants and still be a pro. Just like being an actor, barista and waiter don't count against you as being jobs. Uber driving would also be a hobby.

Please just don't decide to end the Pokercast because people aren't happy that it isn't consistent currently.

Any one know of other good poker-oriented podcasts? This one seems to have run its course, which is truly a shame.

Show happening tomorrow. For real. Or Adam cuts to 150 again with no notice.

Re: The end of the Pokercast??

Hey all,

Ya, the tweet kinda represents where were at. It's not that we aren't interested in the poker community, just that time that was once very easy to find to record is now at a premium.

That's not to say that will always be the case. I anticipate my workload with the hockey association shrinking significantly in the future, so who knows.

Anyway, as T said recording today!

Is this a possibility, or would this be epic self harm via sauna? If it is on the table, nice work about getting back closer to the post bet weight.

Re: The end of the Pokercast??

keep up the work. Gotta at least make it to show 500. Can bill perkins give you sponsor the show.. Aka give adam a $25k freeroll if he does one show a week for 8 months. Ross would probably do it for about $350

Pretty sure I speak for most people when saying that we'd rather have an irregular Pokercast than none at all.

Re: The end of the Pokercast??

The best time for the pokercast was during the boom. Plenty of news and guests
and controversy. It started going downhill when Mike Johnson left. He seemed to be the force that kept the show at such a high level. Listen to the shows from ten or twelve years ago. They’re great.

Hi Everyone:

It’s likely that we will be permanently suspending the Two Plus Two PokerCast. I’ll be back in a few days with an official announcement.

Best wishes,
Mason

Re: The end of the Pokercast??

Thanks for all the memories! Been fun for the past 499 episodes! Been with you since episode 1 on twoplustwo, which looks like was January 2008, over 10 years!

Suspending makes it sound like they did something wrong.

I hope it’s not over, but if it is, sincere thanks to the whole team, Adam, Terrence and Ross and of course MJ too for the many great years of amazing and entertaining content!

Also thanks for 2+2 for making it possible.

All the best for all involved for your future projects!
