Today on the Final Table radio show, we weren’t able to talk with guest Will Failla because he was in the midst of Day 2 of the Borgata Winter Open Championship, one of many final tables he’s made in that series (we’ll reschedule him for a future show).
Instead, we spent the hour talking about some recent poker stories and controversies, including:
- Chris Ferguson’s secret Full Tilt bank accounts;
- Phil Ivey returning to the Aussie Millions and winning the $250,000 buy-in Challenge;
- Las Vegas poker rooms offering rakeback for multiple hours of live play;
- MIT students competing to see who can write the best pokerbot software.
We also discussed this weekend’s Big Game 2 at Harrah’s St. Louis, some of the prop bets for Super Bowl XLVI, and the poker player who left $1 million in his will for his chauffeur.
