On the latest special episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring, Jeff Platt, and Chad Holloway talk about an upcoming Mexican wedding, predictions for High Stakes Duel – Daniel Negreanu vs Phil Hellmuth Round 3, Las Vegas pandemic rebound, and recap the trio of World Poker Tour (WPT) final tables that recently wrapped.
Toss in highlights from the MSPT South Dakota State Poker Championship in Deadwood, which awarded the coolest trophy in poker, breaking down how MISCOOP is outperforming NJSCOOP, Dan Buzgon capturing another WSOPC ring, and McLaren Racing partnering with partypoker and PartyCasino, and there are some entertaining stories to cover.
