Poker vlogger Brad Owen is an easy guy to like, and not just because he posts videos with titles like “Phil Hellmuth Check Raises Me And I Have Aces.” Have you seen his acceptance speech for the Peoples Choice Award at this year’s Global Poker Awards?

Owen drops by this week’s episode of Poker In The Ears to talk about trying to make it as a poker pro in L.A., losing his entire bankroll, and having to move back in with his parents — what he calls “the lowest point in my life.” After that he studied for his Master’s degree, worked as an accountant for a while (“soul-destroying” work in his words), and eventually made his way back into poker with more success. The interview with Owen starts below at about 26:05.

In addition to the chat with Owen, Stapes breaks down what’s been going on at Run It Up Reno besides just karaoke. The boys talk about the results of the Sunday Million 13th Anniversary before moving on to the new season of Game of Thrones and the new Star Wars trailer. And this week’s “Superfan Vs. Stapes” is a Donnie Darko edition.
