Poker Zoo 69: A Lotta Problems With You People, featuring JamBasket


It’s back to what promises to be a bumpy podcast grind with Zoo favorite Jason Burge, aka JamBasket Poker, one of Michigan’s big online cash winners. We hit as many topics as possible with some drive-by commentary. Burge is already kind enough to offer some valuable analysis and recap on his obscure JamBasket Youtube channel; pretty good, player-observant stuff in a world of often irrelevant solver recaps that anyone and their mom can do. (His theory content in TBR is more valuable, in fact.) We last heard from Jason while bisecting the curious Mindblowing Poker.

Today, we cover a fair run of poker topics, from the WSOP to NFT shenanigans, the definition of angling, the Michigan online community, subtle behaviors in victory and defeat, and even an old fashioned hand-review.

There are certain house rules that, if you ignore them, you can be penalized or even kicked out of the poker room. And then there are unwritten rules that are frowned upon by most who take the game of poker seriously, especially those who play poker for a living. Those unwritten rules, which go against poker etiquette, can fall into the category of angle shooting. An angle shoot is an act that gives a player an unfair advantage, even if that advantage isn’t technically gained illegally.

  1. That was an episode well worth listening to. However, you guys are being difficult by refusing to be good little boys and not hitting the “like” button for vlogs, blogs, tweets, general noise in the poker multiverse. In fact, you stubborn fellas are like a girl on a date who gets entertained, doesn’t pay for anything, and then has the nerve not to put out – what kind of pain in the ass bullshit is that?

  2. One who gets the twitter “electric chair” for exposing b.s. should be a badge of honor. You guys have earned a few damn cool badges.

    Keep up the good work.

  3. Clearing your throat (i.e.making noise) or moving in your opponents field of vision while your opponent is preparing to strike the ball would be an angle in golf.
