Six years ago, Unibet Poker ambassadors David Lappin and Dara O’Kearney stepped into the poker podcast arena with their show ‘The Chip Race’, a 5-segment variety show, covering an array of poker subjects, and interviewing an electric mix of guests.
Three years ago, with the help of Willie Elliot and later Saron Harford, the Irish duo launched their YouTube Channel, leaning into O’Kearney’s coaching and analytical expertise to create high-quality animated strategy videos featuring the games top players.
Ten months ago, the now GPI Global Poker Award-winning podcast team has added another string to their content bow, bringing out a companion piece to ‘The Chip Race’, a one-guest topical show, discussing the news, gossip and scandals of the day. ‘The Lock-In’ airs first on their YouTube Channel and a few days later on their usual audio platforms.
Since its launch, ‘The Lock-In’ has been steadily growing with big names like Matt Berkey, Dominik Nitsche, Joe Ingram, Neil Channing and Jamie Kerstetter all stopping by to opine with David and Dara. This week, the lads welcome Doug Polk to the show, fresh from his Grudge Match victory over Daniel Negreanu.
The trio chat about the decisive nature of the win as well as:
- Doug’s preparation
- His Scandi coaches
- The software tools he used to train himself and analyze spots
There is also a wider discussion on the levels that exist in poker and the humility required when tackling the modern game.
In what is a huge tease for the legions of devoted ‘Chip Race’ fans, the interview ends with Doug promising to return to headline ‘The Chip Race’s 100th Episode Special in April so be sure to watch out for that!
