Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 89 - Hero Calling & Folding ft Dean Blatt

Keen cat Dean Blatt joins us for a thrilling episode as we debate subjects such as the Nick Marchington staking fiasco. Dean was the guy who made a video of the now infamous shoegate incident at the WSOP Main Event last month. Tune in for some inside information and check out the video here. Our poser today (22:15) is whether to make a hero call in a hand Dean plays where a villain with a wide bluffing range bets big at a river. The strat-chat hand (53:45) from patron Brannen Hough has us squirming on a river, wondering whether a hero fold might indeed be the right way to go. Minor audio quality issues were experienced during the opening 12 minutes only.
