Season 7 of The Chip Race getting underway
The Chip Race is now getting into its seventh season, a substantial feat considering that many poker podcasts only last for a short time.
It is hosted by Irish poker players David Lappin and Dara O'Kearney, and has routinely featured some of the best players in the business. This season, it continues to build on its success, continuing to bring in some of the most famous names to talk about poker.
The Chip Race has become one of the largest podcasts in the poker world. With two editions completed for this season, players such as Antonio Esfandiari, Maria Konnikova and Niall Farrell have already participated in podcasts. Yesterday saw WCOOP Main Event Champ Steven van Zadelhoff and online pro Adam Sherman taking seats to talk about their successes.
Says Lappin, “I’m always looking for interesting poker stories and they don't always come from the obvious places. It’s an amazing feeling when you know you’re getting something raw and honest from a guest, particularly a big name who the audience probably have an opinion about already."
He added, "Dara has been the best player in Ireland over the last decade. Nobody else has booked a six-figure year every year and nobody who has worked harder than him. So it’s a privilege to get to pick his brain each week and share that with the listeners.”
Next up, for the September 17 podcast, Spain's Pablo Rojas Martinez Del Marmol and Scottish pro Ludovic Geilich are on tap. Lappin also indicated in a recent talk with PokerNews that EPT champ and TV host Vicky Coren could also be present.
The podcasts are available on both iTunes and SoundCloud. The Chip Race also has its own YouTube channel, providing access to all prior episodes, as well as clips and highlights from the shows.
