Hi guys and girls hope you are well.

Just letting you all know that myself and a few others are starting up a Poker themed Radio/YouTube show in the coming weeks.

The show has gained interest on Facebook and in the general Poker community.

It will focus mainly on the game itself, but also a component of what WA has to offer in terms of leagues and games you can get involved in.

SportFM is most likely going to be the medium used, but we are in HUGE need of sponsors to get on board.

This is a MASSIVE chance to get involved with something that is going to gain a following quick.

Game theory, strategies, poker legend past and present, bad beat stories (text and phone in), online poker vs real life, tournament and cash game prep, trivia will be discussed.....

Thanks and if you have any thoughts or ideas or want to get involved please post in this thread.

Thanks.

I have been following in a local FB group the creation of the show, seems interesting, will probably give it a listen at some point. Not exactly sure where the producers want to go with it, but I will probably end up listening to the debut episode and going from there.

Good luck guys. I will be willing to listen in, unsure about sponsoring as I live in Vic.

MASSIVELY late reply (haven't been on here in over a year)......Thanks for the support though.

Basically the radio station didn't rate Poker as a "Sport" and refused to put us on air. Was hugely disappointing as I had a lot of shit planned for it and felt like the guy who talked the talk but couldn't walk the walk. There was also talks of a magazine been made too but nothing came of it.

Haven't given up but not sure where to head from here, still think we could so something because the Poker community is quite strong despite being rat infested and sort of ruined by businesses being greedy.

What about streaming via Twitch, it's something that I've looked into and have started doing but could be a start we have seen how popular the AM has been with Jason Somerville.

Trust me I thought it all through, it wasn't supported enough for me to give up my time for it. Needed help in particular with the tech side especially.

I was going to put it on YouTube with the idea of just having little segments, interviewing players while playing stars at the same time, reading results from leagues around Perth....etc etc could have gone anywhere.

We did a VERY sloppy and half hearted practice run below, Scott fold's 6's pre from memory hahaha so on the whole it wasn't great.

PS Federico Butteroni is at Marri Park Tavern tonight for the $60 APL $2000 guarantee tourney I believe if anyone is a fan of his.....
