WATCH: JRB Reveals His Poker Origin Story On The Poker Life Podcast

And that time he got naked in front of Phil Ivey…no really!

Jean-Robert Bellande, commonly referred to as JRB, is one of the true characters of poker and a real fan favorite.

During his appearance this week on the Poker Life Podcast, JRB gets about as candid as once can get on a number of different topics, including how he first started playing poker.

But that is just the tip of the iceberg (pun intended) as Joey dives in with JBR on WTF he was thinking when he got it all in pre with the 53 during a televised hand from the Triton Poker Series! (We’ve included Joey’s vid on that hand below as a bonus)

Other entertaining topics on the pod include:

  • JRB describing the degen game Big Bank Little Bank
  • His rise to ESPN/WSOP poker fame
  • His experience appearing on Survivor
  • That time he got naked in front of Phil Ivey

And of course, it wouldn’t be a JRB interview if it didn’t include a bad beat story. Check out as JRB tells Joey about the hand that caused him to become a staked player.

The Vlogs Are Back As DNegs Heads To The WSOPE

Daniel Negreanu is currently hunting for his third WSOP Player of the Year title.

He is over at King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czechia, playing in the WSOPE with the hopes to win more bracelets whilst accruing points for the WSOP Player of the Year race.

The WSOPE takes place October 15 to November 4 and there are 10 scheduled bracelet events.

Currently Negreanu sits third in the WSOP Player of the Year standings with Shaun Deeb in second and Robert Campbell in first.

If Negreanu wins the WSOP Player of the Year, it would be the third time in his career and for Deeb who is also in Rosvadov hoping for some wins, it would be his second.

As Negreanu does during the WSOP in Las Vegas, fans are being taken along on his journey thanks to his daily vlogs.
