On the latest special episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring, Jeff Platt, and Chad Holloway talk to Triple Crown winner Roland De Wolfe, who was big during the poker boom but disappeared nearly a decade ago. Where has he been? De Wolfe answers that question, talks about competing in the record-breaking WPT Seminole Hard Rock Showdown, and shares his thoughts on the game today.
In addition, the crew breakdown Phil Hellmuth defeating Daniel Negreanu once again in the High Stakes Duel, highlights from both the MSPT Sycuan Casino and Lone Star Poker Series Champions Poker Club, Phil Ivey's appearance on the DAT Poker Podcast, and Plexiglass coming down at Wynn Las Vegas.
