The Lock-In is Back for 2022

Dara and David talk to Eric Danis about the GPI Awards on their first podcast of the new year.

Doke and Lappin are back with the first Lock-In of 2022.

The boys speak to GPI and Hendon Mob President, Eric Danis — covering among other things, the upcoming GPI Global Poker Awards.

They also discuss the closure of PokerShares, and the demise (and possible reincarnation) of Phil Galfond’s Run It Once Poker — and of course, Doug Polk and Dan Bilzerian’s recent bicker-fest on YouTube.

David has just recovered from COVID-19, but that doesn’t stop Dara from getting in a jibe about his weight inside the first 50 seconds. Some things never change.
