On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring and Chad Holloway welcome guest Kyna England to the show to talk about her big win in the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) Canterbury Park for $186,709 and being the huge favorite to win the MSPT Season 12 Player of the Year with just one stop to go. They also talk to her about her breakout year, which included a third-place finish in the World Poker Tour (WPT) $5,000 Venetian for $448K.
Other stories they discuss are Sammy Farha's physical altercation in a Texas poker room, Johnny Chan's 88 Social closing up shop in Houston, Justin Bonomo reclaiming the lead atop poker's all-time money list, Raminder Singh winning the inaugural RunGood All-Stars ProAm, and Michael Rossitto emerging victorious at Thunder Valley to close out the latest WPTDeepStacks season.
Toss in a recap on the recently-completed World Series of Poker (WSOP) Europe and a breakdown on the iconic Mirage in Las Vegas being sold to Hard Rock International for $1 Billion, and it's another must-listen episode of poker's greatest podcast.
