Holy feedback Batman

We've got a ton of great emails the last few days. Thank-you everyone for your contributions.

I am currently in San Diego - a beautiful part of the world even for an East Coast guy at heart.

On the way down in the plane I had a chance to catch-up on my fave podcasts. I was finally able to give due listening time to the guys at Ante Up. I really enjoyed their show and love their conversational approach. Definitely in the same spirit as our show. I've said it before and I'll say it again - there is always room for good poker podcasts.

I am back in TO this weekend and all plans are go for another show.

Here is just one of the cool messages we received this week - this one from Pocono Drew...

Sean & Stacks,

First of all, I must tell you how much I enjoy your poker podcasts. It is nice to hear "regular" guys talking about their poker experiences and strategies. You both add some fresh insight to the topic and I can easily relate as I am in the same boat as you guys. (30's married, kids)

You had an interesting show recently about going on tilt. I have been a winning NLHE player for the past 18 months or so and I keep track of my online sessions carefully. One thing I noticed is that when I was having a losing session, I would play too long to try and "catch up". This would usually just get me stuck deeper as I was not playing my A game and making too many risky moves. This would lead to near catastrophic one-day losses (sometimes up to 30 % of my bankroll) I have since added a rigid stop-loss number. When I reach this specific number (say 5-10% of my bankroll) I call it a night. I find that I can usually make it back within the next couple of days and it prevents me from playing on tilt. As Sklansky has said in many of his books, it is all one long game.

Keep up the great work and keep those podcasts comin'.
