Radio WCOOP Launched

By Pauly
San Francisco, CA

Yesterday marked the debut of Radio WCOOP.

What the hell is that? Radio WCOOP is a "Morning Zoo" format starring Joe Stapleton and Nick Wealthall. Those two recap all the goodness and goofiness called the 2011 WCOOP.

You all know about WCOOP, it's that yearly tournament series on PokerStars that finally inspired a group of rogue Americans to re-locate overseas so they can get their online MTT fix. I don't blame them. I'm not what you would ever call an "online grinder" but I've been feeling the itch to play online poker the last few weeks. It's like have a limb amputated and you reach down to scratch... nothing.

Why the hell am I not living in Vancouver? They have awesome Chinese food, an awesome NBA franchise, British Columbia's phinest herbs, plus I can play online poker legally and open a Pinnacle sportsbetting account. Well, shiiiiiiiit, if I didn't just move to San Francisco, I'd consider migrating to the Great White North.

Anyway, while American online pros scrambled to find residences in Costa Rica, Mexico, and Canada... the folks at PokerStars have been hard at work behind the scenes creating new facets of multimedia to keep you up to date with all the happenings in WCOOP. Earlier this year during SCOOP, they launched a daily highlights show and now, they went old school with a radio show.

If you are multilingual, or trying to bang exotic strippers, then Radio WCOOP will also be launched in other languages -- Russian, Spanish, and German. Wait, no French, WTF? That's Booshit!
