In this first episode of the PartTimePoker Podcast, PTP lead writer Alex Weldon and WSOP bracelet winner Andrew Barber talk about their own backgrounds, the defeat of world Go champion Lee Sedol by Google’s AlphaGo, and the controversy facing Ivan Luca after he found himself heads-up against his girlfriend Maria Lampropoulos at the end of a Eureka Poker Tour main event. These topics lead to discussion of the ethics of markup, AI bots and the future of online poker, and the issue of soft play in tournaments. Finally, in the strategy segment, Andrew critiques a hand in which Alex finds himself debating whether to make a thin river value bet in a low buy-in Mix-Max tournament.
