This week on the Pokercast: It’s been a very busy week and we’re back to bring you some exclusive interviews and a look into the PokerStars VIP changes. To kick things off our inductee to the Internet Pokers Wall of Fame is none other than Phil Galfond. Phil joins us to talk about his favourite high stakes battles over the years, among other things. We then move on to “In Case You Missed It", the big story of the week and probably the year is PokerStars/Amaya’s controversial changes to their VIP program. A program which has been the industry leader for many years. We run through the facts of the changes and also bring in a player who has achieved Supernova Elite many times, Mike Brooks a.k.a “MeleaB". Mike weighs in on his view of how these changes will affect the future of online poker. Other stories this week include the conclusion of the investigation into the alleged WSOP 10k HU card marker, Bryan Micon’s sentence is reduced and inductees into the other Poker Hall of Fame. The November Nine is upon us this weekend, we talk about the end of the ESPN coverage and bring in Nov. Niner Max Steinberg. Max is probably the most well known player this year, a bracelet winner with another deep run in the main. He joins us from Vegas to talk about his preparations for this weekend, clarifies some things that ESPN may have portrayed in the TV coverage and more. After a break we share the password to the Invitational this Sunday and review some hands in the Roscoe Report, with a surprise appearance from 2005 Adam! (Featured guests: Phil Galfond, Mike "MaleaB" Brooks, Max Steinberg)
