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.


Apr 26, 2024

In the 876th episode of the PokerNews Podcast, which is sponsored by Global Poker, Chad Holloway is back at Level 9 Studio in Las Vegas alongside regular co-host Mike Holtz. However, Kyna England is up in Reno for the RunGood Poker Series, so her Team Hotdog compatriot Lindsey Kludt fills in. The triumvirate discusses football/soccer superstar Neymar making headlines for playing online poker during a child's birthday party, for which he received a good amount of criticism. But was it warranted?

Chad then pays homage to Poker Hall of Famer Crandell Addington, who recently passed away. The Texan was there for the very first World Series of Poker (WSOP), and in this episode you'll get to hear the seven-time Main Event final tablist talk about the old days via an interview he did with PokerNews back in 2020.

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.

Did you know the PokerNews Podcast is no longer just audio? That's right, we've added a video show as well that you can view on the PokerNews YouTube Channel.
