SORT BY Relevancy
We are meeting with with Matt Barker, the cofounder of the Totally Nutz franchise.
Founded in 1992 and franchising since May 2014, Totally Nutz’ has attracted thousands of customers with its delectable flavors and varieties of cinnamon glazed nuts, including almonds, pecans and cashews
Both Yvette and her husband, Matt, were marketing executives who drew tired of the rat race and started looking for their “next big thing.” That light bulb moment came as they recalled all the conventions they used to attend and the thousands of people walking around each show with some kind of handout.
Under the name Barker’s Olde Fashioned Almonds, Matt and Yvette started roasting Cinnamon Glazed Almonds in 1990 and began selling their product at various festivals and fairs. Over the years, their customers would tell how much they enjoyed the product and wished more variety would be offered. Matt and Yvette started experimenting and came up with several delectable flavors and varieties.

A special WWE infused edition of The Donkey's Nutz Radio is coming your way Thursday Night @ 11:30pm! We'll definitely discuss poker but we'll also discuss how WWE and wrestling in general has influenced Donkey Dodgers Poker! Our main topic will be assembling a "Dream Fantasy Poker Survivor Series Team"! If such a thing existed who would you want to have your back on the poker felt? In wrestling sometimes you're forced to put differences aside for the better of the team, for survival @ Survivor Series! Could you do the same in poker? I will announce my "Dream Fantasy Survivor Series Team" and I encourage calls with who you'd add to your team! The requirments are, you are the captain, add one professional player & 3 local pub poker players! For our out of state listeners we'll welcome all pro's if you'd like! Or leave your team here and we'll discuss it on the show!

On Sunday Night's Edition of The Donkey's Nutz (9-11pm) we will announce the newest tournament concept that Donkey Dodgers Poker will bring your way this November! We will discuss in detail the new tournament and get feedback from YOU the Southern New England Pub Poker players!
Also we will delve into morality at the poker table, talking about the underhanded things some players do or attempt to get away with! We'll of course get into illegal moves like "dumping chips" : losing chips to a player on purpose, "going south" : playing chips from your pocket in a cash game rather than from your stack, "underpaying the pot" : obviously speaks for itself, but we'll also touch on some legal but still shady moves, like deceiving players by calling that you have a hand you don't ie: "Oh, I have a straight!" when in reality you have nothing in hopes to induce the other player into folding or "Slow Rolling": delaying showing the winning hand when there is no more betting action to take place! We'll discuss the differences in both sets of actions, and if some of the legal maneuvers are actually worse! We'll welcome your calls to share your stories of "legal" & "illegal" moves you've seen that test the morality of poker!
And of course, much more...
Tonight on The Donkey's Nutz we have an action packed show! We rebound from the disaster that was Sunday Night's program by giving you a full preview of the just started Foxwoods WPT Finals!

We'll discuss the upcming WPT Events, speak to some local players that are gonna be playing in the WPT Finals, some that already have and we welcome you calls if you're gonna be playing too!
Rules have come up a lot recently in my conversations with people and we'll open up the forum to discuss some "stupid rules" in pub poker, some good ones and possibly some you think need changing. Of course mainly we'll discuss Donkey Dodgers rules but we're willing discuss rules across the board at Foxwoods, Mohegan, or your favorite pub poker tour!
We also have the results of the not so epic heads up showdown between host Jay Messier & "Jumpsuit" Jimmy Higgins!
