Liked the Elezra interview a lot. Also enjoyed the SCOOP and degen talk. Very solid episode.

Just got to the end. Grats on modhood Johnny Douglas. I was hoping it would be me, but suspected you were the guy. How can I compete with those xtranormal vids? Anyway, I'll be glad to take over should something unseemly happen to you.

BTW, the 10k at Foxwoods drew 259 (down ~25% from last year), I assume someone saw 165 at the end of day 1 and then got dyslexic.

Re: Pokercast Episode 66 - Eli Elezra & Barry Greenstein

thanks guys!

I really enjoyed this episode.

- Barry was a pleasant surprise, and hearing his comments after seeing Sunday night's [spoiler blocker] was great.
- I find Eli to be a pretty interesting and well rounded guy. I always sorta think of him and Barry straddling the generation gap between the old guys and young guys.
- I knew you'd ask about the 17 accounts, but I love the fact that you asked about the HSP rose. And I love that he called PAD boring!

btw: how is Warteen's custom under title progressing?

I requested it in the mod forum, but doesn't appear to have been addressed.

Re: Pokercast Episode 66 - Eli Elezra & Barry Greenstein

When barry says a lot of the spades were out during the big hand on HSP, I watched it again and only one other spade (other than peter's) was actually out, so most of durr's outs were live. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vNoAwmPAlQ

Re: Pokercast Episode 66 - Eli Elezra & Barry Greenstein

Another superb show fellas. NH

MJ, the friendly fires /white lies gig will be awesome - watch out for Paris, Jump in the pool, and Strobe, all from the Friendly Fires - v good 'choons'

I'm sure that you said that Eli Elezra filated the salmon, but maybe that was just your lil ol Canadian accent.

Eli's tale about the 10M corporation chips, which turned into 27M chips was so cool, was funny imagining how much he must have had, as Devilfish would say 'Shepherds pie in his pants' driving round with all that money.

Does anyone know if there is decent book on the subject of the corporation? I had heard of it previously but would now be interested to know more about it. Cheers

WRT: Fillet

Do Americans pronounce the verb form "fill-it" ?

We needn't be so picky. A lesser host could have very easily asked if Eli Elzra fellatio'ed the Salmon. I could definitely understand 8000k monthly for that.

Re: Pokercast Episode 66 - Eli Elezra & Barry Greenstein

Superb show as always!

Listening to Mike and Adam is infinitely more entertaining and interesting than watching the clowns on TV.

While listening to Barry's analysis of the hand was somewhat insightful, I felt like he was touting his own horn too much. If you look objectively at the three big hands he played against Durrrr, he got outplayed soundly in the first one, got his money in as a significant underdog in the second one and sucked out, and somewhat overplayed his aces in the third one where a more elegant approach would have been to control the pot size and not just coin flip for half a million.

I absolutely appreciate Barry's contribution to the game but, at least to me, it feels like he is trying too hard to stay relevant in the era of Patrick, Gus, Durrrr and Ziigmund.

Full disclosure: I was a math major in college and didn't appreciate the "math is idiotic" gem.
