This week on my poker radio show, The Final Table, Dennis Phillips and I played an interview we did with Humberto Brenes at the 2009 World Series of Poker but hadn’t aired yet. Humberto has cashed more than 50 times in his WSOP career, and you’ve seen him at the final table of several televised tournaments. He explained where his nickname (“The Shark”) came from, how poker is expanding in Latin America, and how he has to keep changing his playing style at the table.
Joe “The Poker Coach” McGowan offered another instructional segment on things you should watch for to gain information about your opponents, from the way they fold their cards to the verbal tells that will tip you to the strength of their hand. We also analyzed a hand that Dennis played on Day 2 of the WSOP a few weeks ago.
