PokerNews Podcast

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.


Oct 12, 2021

On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Jeff Platt and Chad Holloway come to you from the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP)!

They talk about Phil Hellmuth making yet another run at bracelet No. 16 but once again coming up short, which may have inspired his most recent “Poker Brat” blow-up, as well as Anthony Zinno’s big win in Event #19: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship for $182,872 and his third gold bracelet.

They also chat about early champs bolstered by behind-the-scenes interviews w/ bracelet winners like Zinno and Bradley Jansen. Plus, they touch base on the Golden Nugget’s Grand Poker Series, including John Gardner’s $100K victory in the $600 Championship Event.

Finally, Chad chats with Justin Hammer of Prime Social in Houston, Texas, who will be hosting the Prime Poker Open from October 29-November 14. That series will culminate in a $1,700 buy-in, $1.5 million GTD Main Event. Get more details at

Big thanks to the special sponsor this week in Elite Chip Care.
