In the second PokerNews Podcast episode of the New Year, Sarah Herring and Chad Holloway discuss Dan "Jungleman" Cates' controversial tweet about lip fillers, recap winners from the Venetian High Rollers, and preview the upcoming Phil Hellmuth vs. Tom Dwan High Stakes Duel match to take place on Wednesday, January 26.
They also highlight Michael Addamo's win in the GGPoker Super MILLION$, Jake Ferro and Mike "BrockLesnar" Holtz winning Player of the Year races, and Kasey Orr taking down record-breaking RGPS Thunder Valley Main Event.
This week's guest is none other than popular poker vlogger Andrew Neeme, who talks to Sarah about marriage, his well-received "The Villain Who Stole Christmas" vlog, and what inspired him to join forces with Doug Polk and Brad Owen in investing in a Texas cardroom.
Finally, they bid adieu to the great Jeff Platt and recognize his contributions to the PokerNews Podcast.
