Hey High Rollers, sorry it’s been a while, been in California at my sister’s and playing some cards at the Commerce Casino, the world’s largest card room. Amazing atmosphere and one of my favorite places to play. Did quite well too. Lots happening; would love for you to check out the website at www.highrollerradio.net, some changes on homepage and a few new pages as well. First and foremost, a big announcement, or at least unveiling this Thursday night at 8 p.m. eastern on Your Poker Radio.
‘Derrick & Dannenmann’
Proud to announce a brand new show to debut this Thursday night at 8 p.m. eastern on Your Poker Radio, a new and exciting radio network featuring a ton of great shows, including High Roller Radio past interviews. Wanna check it out? Simply visit our homepage at www.highrollerradio.net and hit Channel 1 or Channel 2. We’re set to air at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. eastern on Thursday night’s on Channel 1, with a re-run on Friday’s at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Channel 2.
‘Derrick & Dannenmann’ features Derrick Oliver-Dewan, a veteran radio and television broadcaster and self-proclaimed poker junkie, and Steve Dannenmann, who is one of poker’s household names, finishing 2nd at the 2005 World Series of Poker main event for a cool $4.2 million. He called Phil Hellmuth a ‘punk’ at the Tournament of Champions that same year. Exciteable, opinionated, and funny. This guy can play, despite referring to himself as ‘the 4th best’ in his home game.
Can’t wait for this show and network to launch this week folks, give us some time and I know we’re going to build it into a major winner. If you hear AC/DC plaving then you know it’s time for the ‘Derrick & Dannenmann’ show on Your Poker Radio.
WE just did a fantastic interview with ‘Poker Joe’ Purvis, the man behind this new network, a friend of mine too, and with his hustle and smarts I truly believe this is going to be huge. Very happy to be in on the griound floor.

Blackjack in the Movies
Austin Powers playing blackjack with Number 2…Number 2 is wearing an eye patch with x-ray vision and hits on 17 because he knows the next card is a FOUR. Austin Powers shows and deuce and a three and STAYS on 5.
The dealer advises him to hit but he says he likes to “live dangerously.” The dealer gets 20 and Austin loses.
This is the scene where he meets Allotta Fachina.
“Lyle is not only a fierce competitor at the highest limits, he completely and indelibly changed the world of poker when he co-founded the World Poker Tour,” Canterbury Park’s Senior Director of Card Casino Operations Michael Hochman said in a statement. “We talked to a great deal of people about inaugural nominees into the Minnesota Poker Hall of Fame, and literally everyone’s first answer was Lyle Berman.”
Berman is from Minneapolis.
R. Scott Dinsmore is one of best contributors at High Roller Radio…here he has a brief correspondance with poker pro Dutch Boyd.

Interview with Dutch Boyd
RSD: How did you start playing poker on a professional level?
DB: I had been sneaking into card rooms and playing online since I was 18, and loved playing. When I turned 21, I landed a job at Garden City in San Jose as a prop player. This would have been in 2002. A time-sheet and a schedule… that’s about as “professional” as it gets.
RSD: What is your favorite poker game?
DB: I like the mixed games… the 12/24 mixed game at Aria and the 8-game rotation on Stars.
RSD: Where is your favorite poker room?
DB: In Vegas, the Aria is a beautiful room, but I think the Orleans treats their players better. My favorite live room was Gila River in Arizona… I think they changed the name, but they had so many great promotions. Online, I’d have to go with SealsWithClubs.eu… playing with bitcoin and getting cash outs the same day you request them is pretty awesome.
RSD: What % do you play: Cash games ( 35% ) Tournaments ( 65% )
DB: I’d be much better off if I just played cash games… tournaments are ﬂuky and have a much lower hourly rate.
RSD: What is your most memorable poker experience?
DB: Ha… you don’t need to ask. You were there, bro! Taking down that ﬁrst bracelet in front of the ESPN cameras, headsup with the former year’s champion after eliminating Negreanu in 8th (“spanking his ass” for the chiplead, lol).
RSD: What is the most notable change you have seen in poker?
DB: Well, the UIGEA and Black Friday made up the one-two punch that told us our government doesn’t want us making a career out of poker. It’s been sad watching pros have to relocate to play the game that they love. The game epitomizes everything that is good and bad about this country, and has such a deep history here. We have presidents who funded their political campaigns from poker winnings. Yet, it’s illegal to play Texas Hold’em in Texas or Omaha in Nebraska. The economy was crushed when the big sites left and I don’t think the US poker economy will ever get back to where it was before the UIGEA, even if we see interstate pacts.
