In the latest PokerNews Podcast, Chad Holloway and Jesse Fullen talk about Phil Ivey's recent heater, discuss recent highlights from PokerGO's High Stakes Poker, examine Michigan finally joining an online poker interstate compact, Chan Pelton winning the MSPT Running Aces for $169,271, and preview upcoming events, including the return of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) and PSPC in January 2023.

Meanwhile, PokerNews' own Connor Richards was recently down in South Florida for the 2022 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. It was there that he caught up and interviewed Jason Mercier, Andrew Lichtenberger, Yuval Bronshtein, and recently-married poker couple Alex & Kristen Foxen. You can listen to interviews with all of them in this episode, as well as get a preview of the final table, which will see Darren Elias take a huge chip lead into May's finale where he'll be in pursuit of his record-extending fifth WPT title.
