In the latest edition of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring and Chad Holloway discuss Sam Grafton's victory in the $200K Coin Rivet Invitational for $5.5 Million, as well as Ebony Kenney's impressive finish that was nearly a poker record! Toss in some noteworthy Phil Ivey hands and it turned out to be one of the game's most exciting stops as of late.
Other topics discussed include Sergio Aido and Benny Glaser winning PokerStars WCOOP titles, a look at the Gulf Coast Poker Award nominees, and Josh Reichard becoming the 10th player inducted into the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) Hall of Fame.
Finally, Chad chats with the legendary Antonio Esfandiari about Burning Man, life, and leaving the busy poker lifestyle behind to become a devoted family man.
