Occupy Poker Episode 9 - Occupy Europe! Leaving San Remo (Is this real life?)
Epic ball dropping on our part, the plan was to put out lots of episodes during the Cannes/San Remo trip but many exciting things happened including JC flying to london on 4 hours notice to play a 100k high roller, Jon winning a bracelet despite facing the "greatest performance in wsop history" and a variety of other deep runs by the 2 of us. The result is this Episode where we discuss the almost surreal 3 weeks in Europe on our last night before heading home.

In this episode we try to catch up with all the insanity that has taken place since JC and Jon left Vegas. Topics include the Howard Lederer "interview", an attempted return to poker by Annie Duke after a 3 month disappearance, and Jon's scuffle with the certifiably insane Matt Marafioti at the Legends of Poker WPT last month.

Occupy Poker Episode 6 - “Leaving Las Vegas” with JC and Jon
This weeks episode of Occupy Poker was made during the last hours of the 2012 WSOP as we prepared to skip town with the complete burnout that comes with 2 months in a hotel and playing 30+ events. Unfortunately everyone else had already skipped town and Steve O'Dwyer is still too big time to sit down with us so this will be one of our rare "guest free" episodes. This is the last episode of Occupy Poker from our summer test run, we'll soon be bringing you all new episodes with new guests and awesome topics.
