After taking several bad beats, Mike is a bit down ... Sometimes, you just can't beat a drunk.  He even contemplates getting a real job.  Steve tries to stop that crazy talk right away and they go on to dissect several hands from recent cash sessions.

 

If there is a theme to these hand histories, it would be bet sizing.  In each hand there is a lot to be learned from the bet sizes.

We are excited to announce the launch of our first episode of the Heads Up Poker Podcast.  Hosted by Steve Barton and Mike Sneideman, two California guys who love to talk poker strategy.  Steve is a professional fireman who has played poker for the last 11 years, winning at the game for the last 7 years.  Mike recently gave up his career as a mailman to move out to San Diego California to be closer to his son and pursue a career as a professional poker player.

 

In this episode we discuss Mike's recent run in the WSOP circuit event in San Diego.  Mike had several deep runs, including an 8th and 9th place finish.  We break down several hands of his main event deep run and discuss tournament strategy, bluffing, slowplaying and much more.

 

Please leave comments and let us know what you think of the show.  Thank you for listening!
