On the Pokercast this week: It's Main Event time and Mike and Adam tackle the most anticipated poker tournament of the year from every angle. Discussion topics include the $10m first place guarantee, this years turnout and payout structure plus the biggest stories from the early stages of the tournament including an outrageously drunken competitor, an incredible early start for Phil Ivey, some unlikely table draws for former champs, and the possibility of Chris Moneymaker cashing in the event for the first time since his landmark win in 2003. The guys are joined by high stakes pro and poker TV commentator Olivier Busquet who discusses his world series, the transition from SNGs to MTTs, why so many high stakes poker players are getting buffed these days and the fallout from the media firestorm surrounding his friend Dan Colman's decision to avoid media exposure after winning The Big One For One Drop. The guys also track down Brandon Cantu in between cash game sessions at Bellagio to chat about his controversial summer at the WSOP as well, the emotional and financial roller-coaster ride he's endured since Black Friday including some massive 7 figure swings in Chinese Poker. Lee Jones of PokerStars joins the show to give his thoughts on the passing of Chad Brown and discussing a couple of upcoming VIP Live events. The Pokercast Invitational password is given out somewhere in the episode. (Featured guests: Olivier Busquet, Lee Jones)
