Pokercast 496 - Legal US Sports Betting, High Stakes Action & RIO Poker

Episode #496 - May 18th, 2018

Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - On this episode of the Pokercast: We’re back again to catch you up on all of the news from the Poker/Gambling world, and there’s a lot to catch you up on! To begin the guys talk about what they’ve been up to and why it took so long to do a show, plus we see where we stand on the Yanni/Laurel debate. In the news: Sports Betting has been deemed legal by the US Supreme Court and the guys talk about what this could mean as states begin to regulate sports betting and hopefully poker. Gordon Vayo sues Pokerstars for withholding $700k after they conclude he was using a VPN. Huge high stakes cash game action in Montreal and Montenegro featuring the likes of Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan and Matt Kirk. Also Run It Once Poker releases some features of the new site such as disallowing the use of HUDs. We’ve also got a backlog of funny tweets and mail including a question about at what age Adam and Terrence learned to gamble.

Here's a $10 off coupon for Pokercast listeners for many of the courses at Upswing Poker!

Intellivision! My Dad had that also. Games we had:
Poker & Blackjack
Baseball
Basketball
Bowling
Golf
Skiing
Advanced Dungeons and Dragons (probably my favorite)
Lock N Chase
Space Battle

Pretty sure it is still at my parent's house. I'll be bringing that to my house once they finally clean out all their junk and downsize houses.

We must’ve had 80 games for that thing. Astrosmash, Burgertime, Q*Bert, Donkey Kong, Triple Action, Lock ‘n’ Chase, Baseball, Golf, Bowling, Royal Dealer...my dad and I would spend entire weekends just playing Intellivision.

We pretty much mastered NFL Football, seemed like every play we ran was either an 80-yard touchdown or a 20-yard pick-six.

The dealer looks like you, Adam. You need to change your avatar.

There obviously needs to be an Intellivision Baseball HU4ROLZ showdown between Adam and T, preferably broadcast on Twitch.

Can't imagine how small of a minority I'm in, but I would watch any channel on Twitch that shows games from that era. Their "Retro" section generally means stuff from the 1990s and early 2000s (since that's ancient for a gamer). The likes of Quake, Metroid and Sonic are actually AFTER my time.

Show me someone playing kickass sessions of Dark Castle (Mac), Yar's Revenge (Atari 2600), Gorf (Colecovision), Advanced D&D (Intellivision), and you have my rapt attention for hours.

Yar's Revenge!!!!!! Definitely.

And anyone remember "Space Shuttle" for the Atari 2600? Led you through all phases from launch, to orbit, to docking with a space station, to deorbit burn, to landing. Loved that game.

A couple months ago I went to the Retro Gaming Expo which featured old school cabinet arcade games like PacMac and Dig Dug and people selling 80s era console games. They also had those video games that were built into a small table with a glass top that you played looking down from above.

Never played Space Shuttle, but I'm not sure I would have been the right age for it... probably wouldn't have had the patience at eight years old. The junior-high version of me would have enjoyed that to no end, though. (As it is, I spent many of my high school hours on a game called Falcon, which was a flight simulator of an F-16.)

As for those cabinets, my friends and I rented a vacation place near Tahoe a few years ago. Typical VRBO type of listing, which advertised a kids' room with a video game center. We just figured it would be some console system, and made an agreement to limit the number of hours the kids spend on there.

But noooooo. Turns out, it was a customized cabinet that had about 30 classic arcade games from the 1980s. I guess technology is such that you can pack dozens of games into the space that would have contained just one game 35 years ago. So we had titles like Joust, Dig Dug, Q-Bert, Galaga, Pole Position, Centipede – roughly that era of games. The kids had no interest. The adults had to pry themselves away from it.

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes!!

I have yet to find a video game that reaches the level of obsession I had for PELE'S SOCCER and ADVENTURE when I was seven.

Hell, I was one of the very few kids who loved the 2600 version of PAC-MAN...

Adam and TC, if you guys come out to AZ, I can go pick up my Dad's Intellivision at their house and set it up for a challenge!
