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.


May 3, 2024

In the 828th episode of the PokerNews Podcast, which is sponsored by 888poker, Chad Holloway is back at Level 9 Studio in Las Vegas alongside regular co-host Mike Holtz, and for the second week in a row, Lindsey Kludt filled in for Kyna England, who does make a camera appearance from the RGPS Reno alongside ring winner Liam Gannon.

The crew then talked “Texas” Mike Moncek winning $200K on Hustler Casino Live (HCL) with an 89% VPIP while showing an entertaining $201,000 pot from the game. That led to a discussion on chopped pots, which in turn led to talk of High Stakes Poker and Andrew Robl. Is he possibly the best poker player of all time? Is he a first-ballot Hall of Famer? Those questions are answered in this episode.

Other stories covered include Nick Yunis abandoning his stack to make the birth of his first child, Chile's all-time money list, and why Lindsey has never set foot in Florida and Mike hasn't been there in 20 years. Hint -- it involves alligators!

From there, Chad hosts the second edition of "Which Phil Is It?" in which Mike and Lindsey take turns answering trivia questions involving six Phils from poker -- Phil Hellmuth, Phil Ivey, Phil Laak, Phil Galfond, Phil Gordon, and Philipp Gruissem

Finally, you'll learn about the brand new emoji options in the PokerNews live reporting updates and a new documentary featuring Lukas "Robin Poker" Robinson from the WPT Voyage.

A new PokerNews Podcast drops every Friday at 8a PT / 11a ET / 4p UK time. Make sure to subscribe to not miss an episode!
