The Before, During and After of Black Friday: Reminisce with The Orbit: Episode 10

Robbie Strazynski walks an all-star panel through April 15, 2011.

I case you haven’t heard, today is ten years since Black Friday. To commemorate and reflect on the occasion, Cardplayer Lifestyle founder Robbie Strazynski hosts a special edition of his hit round table-style discussion show, with four great guests talking through their experiences of that day.

  • Blair Hinkle, poker pro
  • Eric Hollreiser, Former Head of Corporate Communications of PokerStars at the time.
  • Mike Matusow, Sponsored pro at Full Tilt Poker at the time.
  • Steve Ruddock, Long-time industry writer and analyst.

The panel go through four topics, all around Black Friday:

  • Background prior to Black Friday, and were there any signs what was about to happen?
  • What were those 24 hours like on the day itself?
  • What was the immediately short-term aftermath for you, day-to-day?
  • And how does it continue to affect you and your work today?

It is fascinating to hear the four different perspectives. Definitely worth carving out an hour of your time to give it a listen.
