Jan 11, 2023

In the first PokerNews Podcast episode of 2023, Chad Holloway, Jesse Fullen, and Connor Richards bring you all the latest stories from the New Year including Jason Koon officially winning High Stakes Duel III after no challenger stepped up, a poker player winning a $6.4 million pai gow jackpot in Las Vegas, and a movie review on Russell Crowe’s Poker Face.

They also dive deep into the Borgata’s The Return, which proved to be a very successful return series for the East Coast venue, which had been hit hard by the pandemic. Stories from there include Samuel Laskowitz winning the Mystery Bounty Event and Ryan Dodd drawing a $250K bounty. Plus, hear winner interviews from $2,100 Bounty Event champ Soukha Kachittavong and Bin Weng, who took down the $5,300 Championship for $1,000,000!

Finally, learn about PokerStars Michigan and New Jersey merging their player pools, Josh Reichard winning MSPT Season 13 Player of the Year, Cherish Andrews & Stephen Song having success as GPI POYs, Mattress Mack losing $3M on TCU, and winners from the Free Poker Network at Golden Nugget Las Vegas.
