PokerCast Episode 210 - Jason Somerville

Live from the Two Plus Two Studios, February 21st 2012 - Jason Somerville The feature guest this week on the Two Plus Two PokerCast is tournament pro Jason Somerville. Jason rocked the poker world on Valentines Day when he published a blog post addressing his sexual preference becoming the first high-profile male poker player to be openly gay. He joins Mike and Adam on the program to talk about the manner in which he came out and the reaction from his friends, family and the poker community. They also chat about his bracelet win last summer at the World Series of Poker and how he managed to win the WSOP fantasy draft. In forum static the guys cover a variety of topics including the recovery of Jonathan Duhamel's Main Event bracelet, some high stakes online cash game action, Daniel Negreanu's controversial video blog and of course give away the password for the February 26th Poker Stars VIP Club Invitational for PokerCast listeners.

Re: PokerCast Episode 210 - Jason Somerville

Great episode guys.

FWIW, in Canada, an interview on TV where you say you sold a bunch of drugs would not be sufficient evidence to charge you with just generally selling drugs. A specific crime, such as a murder or theft is one thing (usually because it brings in a whole bunch of other facts such as location, victim, etc) but "I sold drugs to Joe" isn't going to do it. It could be evidence if you ever are charged, but it's not enough on its own.

Re: PokerCast Episode 210 - Jason Somerville

Alright!!! I made the final two tables.

I haven't finished listening to this week's episode, but I give Jason credit for liberating himself (which I think is a much better description than saying coming out of the closet). I'm sure it was not easy all this time, but now he can truly be himself.

Re: PokerCast Episode 210 - Jason Somerville

"do we need another poker tour?"

yes. local / community leagues are a great way to support the game and make it a social event.

the questoin for me is "do we need more NEWS about poker tours?" and there i think the answer is no.

its just too much of the same bla bla bla to keep up with. just imo.

re: tollerance in religion...

I think religions (or any group) will be tolerant of homosexuality to the extent that they're willing to be tolerant of the truth. This is a pretty polarizing claim, but i see no other way to put it.

I'm still listening to Jason's story, but its really inspiring for anyone who's seeking a route to be themselves in their own mind or other peoples. really cool stuff.

It is completely dependent on denomination.

Re: PokerCast Episode 210 - Jason Somerville

Just to clear things up, regarding EireAbu, Eire is Irish (gealic) for Ireland.
It is pronounced "air-a", as far as "Abu" i dont know what that is, i guess its a nickname or smt.

Re: PokerCast Episode 210 - Jason Somerville

with little poker on TV, I'm forced to watch 2008 WSOP repeats:

"At the end of the day, they're going to put 'poker player' on my tombstone, not 'businessman'."......Howard Lederer

He might want to think about putting someone else's name entirely on his tombstone.

Funny !

Anyhow, really enjoyed the show. Thought you two handled the interview with aplomb. Jason's insights and sense of humor bespoke his smarts.

As an aside, I'm in awe of how you guys can put it out there for the listeners to consider, specifically, Doyle's blog and how you took it apart. I admit that after a casual read I would likely have given his take on Lederer the benefit of the doubt.

Forever falling for the bluff..........
