This week on our poker radio show, The Final Table, Dennis Phillips and I talked about plans for the 2009 World Series Of Poker, which begins next week. Dennis revealed the events he’ll play in and gave me advice on whether it’s worth playing in the opening weekend $1,000-buy-in “stimulus special” tournament, or skip it and play in the Venetian’s Deep Stack tournament instead.
We also continued our series on WSOP strategies with Joe “The Poker Coach” McGowan, this time focusing on late-tournament play, from how to handle your short stack to why a king-nine can be a better hand to move all-in with than a king-queen to what happens as the money bubble approaches to how players tighten up considerably as you squeeze down towards the final table.
Our guest this week was Andrew Brown, who won a bracelet in Omaha high/low at the 2008 WSOP, went deep in the Razz event, and recently had a big online cash in pot-limit Omaha. Andrew also revealed some info about those underground poker rooms that have been part of the New York card scene for so long.
