This is the fourth installment of the weekly All in Poker Radio Show resume series I have planned for the Poker Bankroll blog.

The All in Poker Radio show is hosted by Vic Porcelli who is joined in the studio by Big Slick Andy Kazen, The Young Gun Aggressor Craig Hogard and The Insider Cody Duffey. Produced by Game On Network Entertainment the show can be downloaded as podcast at All In Podomatic and listened to live each Saturday through the Team 1380 website.

In show 13 Vic and the guys are joined by Kevin “Irish” Smith, Jonathan Little of, Mike “The Mouth” Matusow famous poker pro and author of “Check raising the devil” and Alan Zola Kronzek author of the book “52 Ways to Cheat at Poker – How to Spot Them, Foil Them, and Protect Yourself Against Them.”

WSOP updates 0:00 – 21:00

The WSOP main event has started and the field this year looks to have decreased in participation numbers from the previous years of record setting fields. Has the financial crisis hit the WSOP?

Kevin Smith believes that the smaller field this year is due to a combination of the interest in poker having peaked and the crisis in the economy. However the day that online poker becomes legislated and regulated in the US, the WSOP participation numbers could explode again.

Vic doesn’t think interest in poker is dwindling in the US. The famous US newspaper “USA today” had an entire pull out section about the WSOP which indicates that the popularity of poker is still high.

While talking to Jonathan Little who is currently playing at the WSOP main event, the question arose how early in a tournament you should be prepared to put your life on the line with a coinflip.

According to Jonathan it is difficult to know if youre getting your money in as a coinflip. In general however all you can do is get your money in good.

I have been thinking about the same thing lately in the context of low stakes online MTTs and have come to the conclusion that you should not go all in before the middle or later stages of the game unless you are pretty sure your  opponent will fold or you have better cards than him.

Coming back to the WSOP Jonathan’s highlight this year is the fact that more pros have won bracelets due to slightly smaller fields and better tournament structures (100BB starting stacks)

WSOP Classic Clip 22:00 – 25:00

52 ways to cheat at poker 26:00 – 35:00

Alan Kronzek talks about his book: “52 Ways to Cheat at Poker – How to Spot Them, Foil Them, and Protect Yourself Against Them.”

Read the book and get great advice on how to avoid poker cheats in poker home games and in casinos.

Part two of the interview with Mike “The Mouth” Matusow 39:00 – 44

I will leave you with one of my favorite Matusow quotes: “I play to win baby, I play to win. You’ve got to get 26 million chips to win. I play to win”

Does he have the nuts or is he just nuts? 45:00 – end

Daniel Negreanu is heads up against Phil Laak in high stakes poker. Flop is QJx and Phil makes a large flop bet. Daniel sighs in disbelief muttering something along the lines “The brutality…the brutality” and then reraises Phil’s flop bet. Does Daniel Negreanu have the nuts or is he just nuts?

I think, with legalization of online poker in the US, it will help players to increase their skill set and also train other online. Hope the US government is listening !

Hi John

Thanks for your comments. I also hope the government is listening.
With more US players online, the guaranteed tournament prize pools will hopefully increase :-)
