Is Shimi The Fish Good for Poker?

A common theme in poker these days revolves around the discussion of how to grow the game, and the guys at the Weekly Burn & Turn have thoughts on how to make that happen.

Robbie and Shimi have different approaches on what will “make poker great again,” and they present their ideas debate style while making an argument to why they should be chosen as wildcards in the upcoming Global Poker League supplemental draft.

They guys also discuss the new team event at the World Series of Poker, and you don’t want to miss this exciting edition of Name That Pro.
