Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 37 - Huge Laydowns

Experience the WSOP vicariously via Merv "The Verve" in Vegas. Our regular feature, the PPP Poser (12:32) is centred around the theme of huge (or as Mike says, "yuge") laydowns.  The strat-chat (28:49) involves  a hand from the 2016 WSOP Main Event showcasing James Obst making a tremendous laydown. No takers so far to buy a piece of Merv's action for this year's event - for any bargain-hunters (cough, splutter) he's going as low as 0.8 (and you can probably talk him down to 0.75 - wow, that might actually be worth it!)
