Tonight on my poker radio show, The Final Table, Dennis Phillips and I are at the 2009 World Series Of Poker in Las Vegas with Jamie Gold, who just played in the Champions Invitational with 20 other former Main Event winners, including some true legends.
Then we talk with Jeffrey Pollack, commissioner of the WSOP, about the surprisingly large numbers of players who have showed up for the early events, what he’ll do about expanding in the future, why they have trouble getting big corporate sponsors, whether he thinks the UIGEA will be repealed soon, and whether the WSOP is looking to get into online poker.
We finish with Bryan Spadero of the Poker Players Alliance, for an update on the Barney Frank legislation that would reverse the UIGEA.
A quick plug: in upcoming weeks, you’ll hear interviews with Eli Elezra, Mike Matusow, Kristy Gazes, Joe Sebok, Marcel Luske, Peter Eastgate, and more, so keep coming back here for the podcasts!
