Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 76 - Hero Calling

Merv & Ben are recovered from New Year celebrations in Sydney and present an episode about hero calling. They discuss this hand briefly in the preamble, before the traditional poser and strat-chat hand (21:05), which comes from a Belgium listener Kristoff, who wrote: "Hello, G'day and welcome to my email...". After that piece of comedy, we simply had to feature the hand.
