Dr. Daren Wooten is an ER doctor, a farmer, and new to the world of poker.  Daren was on a cruise when he first played poker just over a year ago, and he's been hooked ever since.  Daren asked Mike to review a tournament that he made a deep run in, and instead we did it over a podcast.  Mike talks about his upcoming live events, and we go over the Presidential race.
