Several weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet and play with some really nice people from within the world wide poker community. Some were there to compete, some were there to entertain and some were there to entertain the thought of competing while working!
Anyway, Short Stacked Radio has taken the poker world by storm since it's debut July 5th, 2011. The show features guests from all walks of life within the poker community. You will hear weekly from top representatives of the Poker Players Alliance and PokerNews.com, and just recently Phil Helmuth joined the show to discuss his upcoming charity event scheduled.
