Explosive!!! Johnny Hughes on High Roller Radio

Hey High Rollers,

What a thrill!  Yesterday, I got to speak to Johnny Hughes, author of Famous Gamblers, Poker History and Texas stories, who is now a two-time guest of High Roller Radio.  Again, he does not disappoint.  Explosive suggestions that legendary gamblers Archie Karas, Phil Ivey and Stu Ungar may have cheated their way to the top!  Wow.

BetOnline

Here is a quote from our Q&A:

“Yes, it ruins his (Archie Karas) legacy!  To me he was not a great gambler at all, he was just a dang sucker who lost all his money.  Stu Ungar was one of the greatest suckers of all time and ended dead of drugs, I mean how can you say he was great at anything.  And, by the way, I suspect when he made some of those thin calls he knew one of his opponents hole cards.”

Johnny also provides tales about Amarillo Slim, Benny Binion, Johnny Moss and his mentor Curly Cavitt, who he calls one of the greatest of all-time.  “Doyle Brunson told me that Curly was the consummate gambler; he had NO leaks.”

What about cell phones at the table?  “They need to go,” Hughes says, “there are so many ways to cheat with cell phones.”

This is a great interview!  If you love poker history, gambling anecdotes and quips about some of he great cheats and their methods.  Plain and simple, Johnny Hughes is our kind of guy; from the Old School, he’s entertaining, well spoken and a guy who can talk your ear off about the old-time gambler, about the old time west, about cheaters.  Important to note; Johnny does not advocate cheating and stresses it is extremely rare.  “The casinos won’t cheat you, they have too much to lose,” he says.  He also explains what to do should you spot cheating in the poker room, “Do NOT confront the cheater, they may be crazy and try to harm you.  Quit the game and rub your thumb on the floor person’s back.  That let’s them know there is cheating or something fishy going on at the table.”

In our first interview we spoke a lot about his book; including a great quote about Buddy Holly and his poker playing about, “He was terrible,” he says.  “He was very KIND,” he jokes.

Thank-you Johnny Dynamite Chat.  Can’t wait to have you back on.
