    RIP 2+2 Pokercast :(

    Pretty bummed, it was a great podcast.
    This should bump up PFA Radio a tier though...
    I hope this thread doesn't get Druff sued.

    Writing was on the wall as soon as Pokerstars dropped them.

    They rode a very lucrative gravy train for many years. I was legitimately jealous.

    Used to listen religiously but haven't listened much in the last couple of years. I imagine everyone else is the same and that's why it's finishing. RIP in peace

    Adam Schwartz posted the following statement:

    Hi all,

    First, I want to thank Mason for his very kind words in his post above. I can't imagine having a better working relationship with someone than I've had with him over the last ten years.

    I know some don't like his gruff personality, but I'm here to tell you that he's one of the most generous men I've come across. We had a partnership that over the years amounted well into seven figures, all on a handshake. I never once doubted his honestly or his commitment to allowing Mike and I, later Terrence and I, to take the show in whichever direction we felt was right. The early years were very rewarding financially and as Mason pointed out, the meddling democrats and Black Friday changed the financial situation of our sponsorship. When times were tough, Mason was there to offer me a salary from his own pocket to try to find other sponsors and keep the show going. He didn't have to do that and he would never tell you he did, that's what I mean by generous.

    As I said, he let us do basically whatever we wanted with the direction of the show. Understand how difficult that is for him. He has a website worth millions and he's letting two guys with very different views on everything from politics to poker teaching and general decorum say whoever they like on a podcast going out to thousands of people. For example, you won't ever hear him swear, but he accepted that we were going to even though it reflected on his brand in a way which he likely disagreed with.

    A few other people I want to thank:

    1. Mike Johnson. The show would never have been born without a proven veteran of talk radio. Mike is a true professional in everything he does and he taught me from day one how to go about planning and executing an entertaining product. I'd like to think I filled in the lead host role seamlessly after he left, but we all know that's not the truth. MJ is one of my best friends to this day and I can't thank him enough for all he did for me and the show.

    2. T Chan. After MJ left, I don't think the show would have survived if T didn't take over the other host role. It was an easy transition as we were already close friends and knew we would get along, but Terrence constantly challenged me to be as good as he is whenever the mic is turned on. Thanks T!

    3. Ross Henry. After our boy Bunner left the show, again I don't know if we would have continued if it weren't for Rosscoe. He innovated constantly, adding drops and suggesting segments that kept the show as fresh as it could be. Following his poker career and day to day adventures was fun for all of us. When I think of excellent podcast producers I think of Ross, Bunner and Shronk. Thanks Ross!

    4. Mat Sklansky. Matty is a great human and I love him to death. One of the most easy going guys you'll ever meet, Mat was always there to help when something had to get done. Also, if you need a tour guide for the worst casinos in Vegas, he's your guy! Thanks Matty!

    5. Steven McGloughlin. As Mason said, Steven was there at the beginning and had the vision to see how this show could make money. We don't see eye to eye on pretty much anything, but Steven is another person that was absolutely integral to the genesis of the show and it likely wouldn't have happened without him.

    6. Our boy James Bunner. I miss healthy James so much. He was a great friend and was as focused on enjoying life like nobody I've ever come across. If you didn't have fun when you were out with Bunner, something was wrong with you. So many great memories, I'll cherish them all till I die.

    7. Our favourite guests! If I try to list them, I'lll likely forget some so I'm not going to do that, but you know who you are!

    8. Most importantly, our loyal listeners. The dedication to the show always humbled me. People that listened to every show, sent emails and tweets gave us a reason to keep going and improve on what we were doing. To each and every one of you, thanks so much!

    As far as show 499 or 500, anyone that has listened to the podcast knows how much I dislike "best of" or milestone shows. It feels so much like patting ourselves on the back and it's just not something I've ever been comfortable doing.

    Who knows what the future holds, but I will look back on my time hosting a podcast at 2+2 with nothing but fond memories.

    Lots of love,
    Adam

    Count me as one who doesn't like Mason's "gruff personality" (that's putting it lightly), though I believe Adam's claim that Mason wouldn't be one to rip you off in a business deal.

    Interesting that Adam revealed that the Pokercast took in "well into the 7 figures" during its run. That's what I heard, as well. Amazing. Most of that was from Pokerstars, btw. Isai was a very generous man.

    Despite my ongoing battles with Mason and 2+2, I always respected the Pokercast and the solid content they put out weekly.

    I also greatly appreciated Adam giving PFA shout-outs at times, which actually got us some listeners. He didn't have to do that, and I was in fact surprised he did it given Mason's feelings about me. But that was always very very much appreciated.

    All things eventually have to come to an end, and I guess it was time for this one to shut down. Interesting how Adam wrote that he "hates" milestones, because he feels it's like patting yourself on the back. I don't see milestone shows that way, but that might explain why they ended at #499 (or at least why they don't stretch it one more episode).
