New Radio Show a Big Hit


After landing one of the most successful tournament pros of 2005 and poker's biggest personality, Mike "The Mouth" Matusow as host, launched its radio show, The Circuit, from the Five-Diamond World Poker Classic at the Bellagio.

A penthouse suite and a huge room service bill were all it took to bring some of the biggest names in the game directly to visitors' ears. The premiere installment featured Daniel Negreanu and quickly turned from an interview into a poker lesson that would serve as the template for future shows.

Throughout the week, the penthouse played host to other big-name pros, including Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi, Paul Darden, Gavin Smith, and $15,000 main event final tablists Phil "The Unabomber" Laak and Joe Cassidy.

Next, The Circuit's roving studio cleared customs and set up shop at Atlantis in Paradise Island, Bahamas for the third annual Caribbean Poker Adventure. Listeners got to know reigning World Series of Poker Champion Joseph Hachem, learned more about Greg Raymer's successful strategy for outlasting enormous tournament fields, and even heard an answer to the question, "What happened to Chris Moneymaker?" Later in the week, The Circuit's tournament poker primer with Tom McEvoy stimulated strategy discussion on a number of poker message boards, proving that, as well as being an entertaining show for the casual fan, The Circuit is yet another way that Card Player is helping serious players improve their game.

After its Caribbean junket, The Circuit began its cross-country trek, starting in Tunica, Mississippi for the Gold Strike World Poker Open. Here, the guests included John Phan, Josh Arieh, Barry Greenstein, David Singer, and two World Poker Open final tablists, Gavin Smith and Michael Mizrachi. Next, it's off to Atlantic City for the Borgata Winter Poker Open and then on to the LA Poker Classic. Tune in.'s new interactive radio show allows users to phone in questions (1-877-675-1306) or send emails directly to poker's top pros.

So far, the show has proven a tremendous hit, with thousands and thousands of streams and downloads. Log on to The Circuit page and catch the interviews, analysis, and antics from all of poker's biggest events.
