Hilarious Haralabos

Was catching up on some podcasts and finally got to the most recent set of shows from CardPlayer's The Circuit (from the 2006 Mirage Poker Showdown). Of the poker podcasts that focus on the pros, I enjoy The Circuit the most, primarily because its hosts (Scott Huff, Gavin Smith, and Joe Sebok) are all very likable, witty, and knowledgeable about poker. Smith and Sebok also routinely avoid the sort of belittling commentary some pros offer whenever asked to comment on low limit games.

If you haven't heard it already, check out the show from Day 3 at the Mirage, particularly the second half when they interview Haralabos Voulgaris. The Canadian part-time tourney player's explanation of his career as a sports bettor is interesting enough, but his account of his much-publicized run-in with Freddy Deeb at the WPT Championship is priceless. As Sebok says at one point -- I paraphrase -- this is some of the funniest shinola I've ever heard (on a poker podcast, at least). The bit about the waitress with oversized hands is up there as well. I suppose some (e.g., Freddy Deeb fans) think Voulgaris an ass, but this’ll have you cryin’ regardless.
