PokerCast Episode 211 - Matt Marafioti, David Schwartz of UNLV & Barry G Talks FTP

Live from the Two Plus Two Studios, February 28th 2012 - Matt Marafioti, David Schwartz of UNLV & Barry G This week on the Two Plus Two PokerCast Mike and Adam start things off with the continuing Daniel vs. Doyle blog battle and a questionable blog entry by the godfather of poker blaming Phil Ivey for the collapse of Full Tilt. The guys connect with poker pro and friend of the show Barry Greenstein to get his take on Doyle's latest entry. The feature guest this week on the PokerCast is high-stakes poker pro Matt "ADZ124" Marafioti. Matt joins Mike and Adam on the program to talk about his roller coaster beginning in the poker world, his live tournament success and his reality television venture. The guys also connect with David Schwartz, Director of the Center for Gaming Research at UNLV to discuss the hot topic of casino markers and how they effect both the casino and players. In forum static the guys cover a variety of topics including the Academy Awards, some high stakes online cash game action and of course give away the password for the March 4th Poker Stars VIP Club Invitational for PokerCast listeners.

Never been in the top 10 before. Sad it was due to family matters intervening.

Anyway, looking forward to hearing from Barry G. I see him from time to time at Commerce and these interviews almost make it seem like I know him personally.

I'm also interested in the David Schwartz segment. I like it when you dig down into some of the intricacies of the industry to which casual players aren't exposed.

It may just be me, but ADZ came off as incredibly full of himself in this interview. Hard to differentiate between him describing his accomplishments and him outright bragging.

Wasn't just you. The interview was also way too long, IMO. Thankfully, the rest of the show was great.

I have always been intrigued by ADZ...he may be full of himself and a punk but ever since I watched him play at PCA a few years back I have kept an eye on him...look forward to listening.

Good wishes for Dad.

Matt's interview: Tried hard to not find it offensive. Probably a lot of it has to do with being a social worker dwelling in the trenches. 700 for a bottle of grape. 2 grand for a nice dinner. 1.7 mill for a carbon footprint.

While I respect his ability I'd sure like to see him take a page out of Barry G's playbook and set up some sort of community based endeavor. Pay it forward, so to speak.

That's all.

Marafioti is an incredibly humble kid. So humble that I think you have to say he is the humblest guy in the world.

Cant believe this is just coming up about chrome; no wonder 20% of the shows are inaccessible for me...

You guys could say something on a the next few pokercasts to give regs a heads up as Chrome is quickly becoming the dominant browser among many.

14:1 for epic poker league failing. And even worse odds for anyone using chrome to try and access anything.
Cliffs - Use yahoo.
