Poker Podcasts Guide 2022

You may not know much about the poker podcasts you don’t listen to. Most of the available guidance to the market is click-bait articles, dated click-bait articles, and corporate’s ineffective search algorithms. For instance, Google’s poker podcast summary and Spotify’s listings miss many of the best poker podcasts, yet both promote long dead pods, some…

The Card Counter, by Paul Schrader

I’m going to review the new film The Card Counter from immediate memory; usually the opportunity to watch again, especially those key moments where a theme or even just a detail the writer’s argument can lean upon requires exact knowledge. However, I think in this case it will be fine; after all, Bill Tillich aka…

All Vlogs Revealed: Determination

Live poker’s great crank sage, Abe Limon, borrowed well from Gertrude Stein. “There is no there, there,” he would say, meaning that poker was a passage through, as opposed to a destination toward. The determination to make something of yourself through poker is one of our game’s major themes. Those who “forgot the cardinal rule”…

All Vlogs Revealed: Patterns

Our theme, if you’ve been keeping up, has been looking closely at the pattern of images, the only way to truly analyze what is going on in the video medium, because that is the moving canvas of the work – no matter if you are Fellini or a humble poker vlogger. It’s just welded right…

If someone doesn’t like what you are doing, you just ignore them! It’s a novel approach to life, positivity, really. So new, in fact, that the word itself doesn’t even register in the secondary dictionary which red-lines for this word processor. However, it would be a mistake to read much into this- I don’t think…

Much Revealed

Unfortunately, I am not a man of my word, but it doesn’t mean I’m not trying. Perhaps the secret was not to go so in depth, when really, few care besides me about what is behind the vision. “Keep it simple,” she had said fatefully; in this case, perhaps that still applies to a few…

All Vlogs Revealed: Sheils

A new generation of poker players is creating thousands of hours of previously rare poker content: The personal poker video log, aka vlog. In this series, I will attempt to review them all. “It’s difficult to talk to the camera,” admits Brandon Sheils, a once and now again aspiring poker vlogger. Watching his videos “My…

All Vlogs Revealed: Boski

A new generation of poker players is creating thousands of hours of previously rare poker content: The personal poker video log, aka vlog. In this series, I will attempt to review them all. It’s suiting that I start off with a vlog which commands its form while being particularly constrained by it. In other words, the Jeff…
