Hey guys,


Thanks for the feedback I received on my last blog post talking about the 300 buyins in 31 days prop bet . A couple people had some really good ideas that I had previously thought about a bit and started thinking more about after. I do have an approach in my mind I would take but it would probably not be smart to post about it in regards to possibly getting action. I have a few different prop bet ideas I am thinking about trying but the first step is to officially get out of the country, my lease here in the states is up at the end of August and I need to decide in a couple weeks what I will be doing.


I've blogged on here about a couple of my podcasts and this time I wanted to write more about my latest podcast I did with the airport scammer Michael Borovetz. His story intially came to light on a 2p2 post http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/29/...-mccarran-airport-6-22-14-a-1454252/. The cliffs note version of it all is, he tries to scam someone at the airport for money with a sob story, he has apparently done this in the past many many times and it is posted about on the internet. He comes into the thread and tells his epic life story. Graduation from Penn State, developing a full blown gambling addiction, begging for money in casinos, living on the streets, losing multiple jobs, multiple felonies, scamming at the airport and a bunch of other fun things. At some point the sports website Deadspin http://deadspin.com/poker-addict-and-...mmer-spills-his-life-story-1598124425 linked to his story and the thread on 2p2 and it exploded even further with people giving there opinions on both sides of the spectrum.

I had been following the story a bit and was intrigued/entertained by it all. It seemed like people had a lot of questions and wanted to know more about this guy and I thought it was unlikely anyone else would try to have him on for a podcast/interview. I decided it would be a good idea if I tried to get him on a Poker Life podcast. This is certainly not the usual type of person I would have on any of my podcasts so far but I thought it would be a good opportunity to branch out a bit and try something new. Normally I bring a pretty high energy and joking attitude but I think this situation was better served with me being a bit more mellow and letting him dominate the discussion while trying to maintain a serious tone.

Overall I think it went pretty well and the feedback I received in the thread on 2p2 was positive. Someone mentioned I said "you know" and "obviously" a million times. It tilted me so hard as I was editing every time I said either one but I kept it in. The subject we were speaking about is something I am not super familiar with and I think when I get a bit nervous or am not 100 percent confident in what I am saying I start trying to validate it with "you know". Will try to improve on that in the future.


As for the episode, Part 1 is Mike explaining his life story that was posted in the thread. I think the ridiculousness of the story is one of the reasons the thread took on a life of its own. I was following along with the story in the thread while he retold it and mentioned if this was something he had memorized and used in the past because word for word it was the same. About half way through I decided to start leading the story by saying, "so then you were homeless" "then you went to vegas" etc...


In part 2 I asked him some questions people posted in the thread and we had some pretty good back and forth about what the future holds and how to escape this life he has known for so long. If you only listen to one of these I would suggest part 2.


Enjoy

it seems people would much rather hear about a huge degen than someone who does something positive, people are people

Gonna crank these up real soon. I'll tell ya somethin, I never listen to podcasts. I have never once in my life found an interesting podcast to listen to. But I just listened to your interview with that french canadian player and couldnt put it down. And that wasnt even a particularly good podcast I imagine. You got a flare for this thing, keep it up.

listening to edzwoo has made u a nit... *sigh* - Zalfor

last few days ive gone through even the plo podcasts while grinding, helps me put in the extra hour on the SNEgrind

time flys by listening to it!

uve mentioned a few times in different episodes that maybe u talk to much shit, about girls, drugs this or that. i just wanted to throw it out there that i love that sorta stuff, ur a funny guy and its nice listening to some storys or random rants/laughs etc

esp w u and WCG, u make a funny combo

keep it up, moaaar!

one with leo was fun too since i know him. I dont mind the strategy stuff, but if u get alot of flame for not sticking to more strategy i wanted to share my opinion on the other side of the coin

less strategy, more gossip/rants/random conversation imo boring strategy stuff we get enough of from rio

Not that i mind haveing a goal or structure going through discussing/looking through some hands to have some backup through the episodes, but dont feel any pressure in that aspect just keep doing what ur doing!

I agree the stories are the most fun. I don't even watch the strategy stuff, because I have never played PLO. Btw regarding that story with the ferrari test drive on your podcast, do you ever plan to buy a supercar in the future or have you let go of that dream?

hey longpie thanks for the feedback. I'm really happy to know that there are NL guys out there that are still able to listen to my PLO podcasts and able to enjoy them. I started doing guests with hopes that more people outside of PLO could start listening to it as opposed to the first few which were just HHs

I've found that some people like the random talk I do about that type of stuff and others want less of it, interestingly enough its usually the more accomplished players who want more of it and the casual/small stakes players who like more of the strategic talk. I wouldn't have expected that before I started doing it but it does make sense why that is.

Really appreciate the feedback and motivating to hear that i'm helping others work towards sne goals


I wouldn't mind having you on for a podcast actually, i've enjoyed your poker journey very much and i'm sure others would as well

I touched on this in my last reply to longpie but this is exactly what I hoped would happen.


Thats an interesting question, when I was single and had new money I was all about the idea of getting that type of supercar. I thought the experience of having one for even a few months would be something I would remember forever and would regret if I didn't get one. As I am in a long term relationship now the desire to have any cool car really isn't there for me. I'm not actually motivated by anything anymore when it comes to playing poker outside of not having to work a regular job again. Sorta sad when I type it out and read it back lol. I think at some point in time I might desire to get one again, it was a huge motivator in the past for how much money I made.
