Live from the Two Plus Two Studios, April 14th 2009 -

Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - The feature guest this week on Pokercast is poker pro Alec "traheho" Torelli. Alec comes on the program to talk about his success as an up and coming poker pro and his recent claim that he is "burned out" from poker and doesn't get the same enjoyment from the game as he did early in his career. Dusty Schmidt also chimes in on the show to discuss his poker / golf million dollar prop bet. Shaun Deeb joins us to talk about his current tournament heater and his heads-up play with Terrence Chan at one of the PokerStars SCOOP final tables. Nolan Dalla is also featured on this weeks show talking about his confrontational interview with poker legend Amarillo Slim. Mike and Adam also talk some tournament news, forum static and of course give away the password for the April 19th Poker Stars VIP Club Invitational for Pokercast listeners.

As always, excellent show. During the interview with Nolan, mention was made of Slim shooting some kind of angle on Daniel Negreanu, maybe involving kings or something? Maybe my google is broken, but I have been unable to find anything on this story. Anybody got some cliff notes?

Perhaps this could become a contest. I'd contribute 5$ to a prize pool for this..

You're a hot woman right?

I believe it's in the SCOOP ME thread. Someone can correct me otherwise. It's a long one, and I haven't gotten all the way thru it. Any have Raymer's post #?

Ah okay cool. I poked around but couldn't find it and didn't even know where to begin. Just looked around the MTT forum.

Yeah, this is the thread. https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/61...-event-458965/
Greg chimes in about the quads under quads hand at post #58, drops the 'been running bad lately' in post #66. Shaniac's 'pathetic' comments comes shortly after that.

Re: Pokercast Episode 67 - ALEC "traheho" TORELLI, AMARILLO SLIM discussion & SCOOP recap

Love that Alex brought up "Fooled by Randomness" The author also wrote "The Black Swan" which is another great discussion of the implications of statistics, and the left tail specifically. My only caution on these would be that Taleb is a little jaded and is pointing out that things like stocks are neither completely random NOR normal (in the statistical sense).

Great stuff as always, guys. Keep up the good "work"!

Re: Pokercast Episode 67 - ALEC "traheho" TORELLI, AMARILLO SLIM discussion & SCOOP recap

Great show as always, guys.

A comment on your take on Slim's no contest plea, though-

I want to preface this with the statement that I don't know any of the particulars specific to this case, and given Slim's reputation + his no contest plea, I'm assuming he did commit this crime. That being said..

I could completely understand someone in Slim's position entering a no contest plea if innocent. Look at it from his perspective. Even as an innocent man, there still stands a reasonable chance that he'll be convicted. What that chance is, no one can say, but it happens all the time. Put yourself in the shoes of a 75 year old man facing charges like this.

If he rolls the dice fighting this charge, and loses, he's pretty much knocked out of the tournament. He'll most likely die in prison. Facing that kind of risk, I wouldn't find his decision to plea bargain as an innocent man all that strange.
