Joe Cada in ‘The Hijack Seat’

In this latest episode of ‘The Hijack Seat’ (by PokerNews Daily), Bernard Lee interviews Joe Cada, last year’s WSOP Main Event champion.

Joe speaks about what it feels like to be back at the WSOP with all the expectations from other players and sponsors and how he has been doing this year.

Joe Cada grew up in Michigan, where he started playing online poker at 16. He soon became known as an online heads-up cash game master, but the real success for Joe came in 2009, when he managed to beat Phil Ivey and Darvin Moon among others at the WSOP Final Table. Holding only 1% of the chips at the table, Joe flattened the rest of the table and secured himself the precious bracelet.

From the interview, we can also learn which is Joe’s favorite NL hand, which was his most memorable hand at last year’s WSOP and which player he thinks is yet unknown, but will soon become a poker star.

Barry Greenstein Interview

Check out this video interview made by PokerTube with Barry Greenstein, in which he talks about his WSOP performance (which didn’t go exactly as he would have wanted) and much more.

It is always a pleasure for me to watch interviews with Barry, as he is, in my opinion, one of the most intelligent poker players of today.

One thing that we can notice upon viewing the video is that good old Barry is truly ageing, with his hair (or at least what’s left of it) and his beard being fully white now, the Robin Hood of Poker is closer to sixty than he has ever been before.

Hijack Seat

Gavin Smith was featured on a show called The Ultimate Poker Challenge in 2004, where he quickly became a favorite because of his gambler’s attitude, drinking habit and good humor. His other TV appearances included High Stakes Poker, Late Night Poker and NBC’s Face The Ace.

Having more than $4 million in career tournament earnings, Smith finally succeeded in winning a WSOP event as well.
In this interview, Gavin does not only talk about his WSOP victory; he also mentions charity work, and a very touching movie titled ‘Darius Goes West’.

PokerStars Game Crash

Here is a video from PokerTube showing one of the occasional cases when a PokerStars table crashes. In this particular case, all players except one are frozen out.

Definitely awkward, and there is really not much to be done, except what ’shaftamasta’, from PokerTube commented: “Copy the tournament number and send a message to support. Tell them you were frozen out of the tourney and they will look into the hand histories of the tourney that you are complaining about. The only thing they can do is refund your buy in, but if it happens in a later stage of a match where dollar figures are involved, then they have to look at your position at the time of disconnection.”

If you happen to have come across a similar situation, I suggest you take shaftamasta’s advice; simple as it is, this might well be the best course of action. To see all the comments in full length, visit the discussion forum of the video here.
