Do you love poker? Interested in hearing from best and biggest names in the game like Daniel Negreanu, Doug Polk, Andrew Neeme?  Every week Sarah Herring, who has been nominated for several American Poker Awards, and Jeff Platt who has been covering sports & poker for a decade, bring you news, gossip & interviews from the world of poker.


Feb 2, 2024

On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast sponsored by WPT Global, Chad Holloway, Connor Richards, and Matt Hansen recap the recently-completed Borgata Winter Open, acknowledge the Anthony Zinno allegations, and dive into the PokerGO Cup.

It was there that Connor chatted with Cody Daniels, who despite severe health issues ventured to Las Vegas to live his dream of playing a high-stakes tournament. Not only did he play, but he made the final table! The crew then ventured across the street to a Bally's Live high-stakes cash game where we grabbed interviews with Daniel Cates, Mike Watson, Dylan Weisman, and Dylan DeStefano.

Other stories include Shaun Deeb closing in on a $1 million body fat prop bet, former PokerNews reporter Mo Nuwwarah winning an MSPT title and remembering Perry Friedman, who recently passed away from pancreatic cancer.

Finally, they take a look ahead to both the Celebrity Poker Tour Invitational II and CSOP "All in for Epilepsy" on Feb. 8, as well as Leigh Steinberg's 37th Annual Super Bowl Party, which PokerNews will attend. Hear the crew's Super Bowl picks, and find out where you might be able to cross paths with one of the teams after the big game.
