This week WSOP POY Rob Campbell is locked in and making Dara and David laugh out loud as the stand-up comic turned mixed game Aussie pro regaled them with his funny and sometimes not so funny tales. The meandering conversation occasionally gets on track to discuss Patrick Leonard’s superb bit of sportsmanship when he prompted Pokerstars to double-check their SCOOP Leaderboard standings. This story actually develops in real time as David gets an update and a direct quote from Pads while the show is recording. Rob is the perfect person to interpret this bizarre situation from every angle as the man who won the WSOP POY after it was similarly discovered that the points had been calculated incorrectly. The chat then switches to another man of the moment, Irish Twitch star Fintan Hand who took down his second SCOOP title. The lads discuss Fintan’s rise up the echelons of the game while Rob tells us about how he ‘chat-pro’ trolled Fintan while he was playing the final table. There is discussion on ‘Series-Fatigue’ as we come to the end of a grueling period for online poker while Rob talks about the opportunity for introspection and learning in lockdown. He also chats about ‘The Podker Podcast’. The show concludes with lots of the banter as the trio joke about Rob’s upcoming boxing match, lots of wisdom from Dara and his strategy nugget and lots of blatant advertising as David plugs the upcoming €250 buy-in monthly game on Unibet Poker called ‘The SuperMoon’.
