PN Podcast: Was Deal Made in 2023 WSOP Main Event? Champ Daniel Weinman Tells All!
On the latest PokerNews Podcast episode, Chad Holloway and Connor Richards wrap up the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP), which includes diving into some numbers, recognizing a new cash record, and discussing the rise of 2023 WSOP Player of the Year Ian Matakis.
Chad then sits down with 2023 WSOP Main Event champ Daniel Weinman, who topped a 10,043-player field to win the most prestigious event in poker for $12.1 million. The poker pro talks about what it was like to win, what he did to celebrate, and how poker may return to a more prominent role in his life. He also addresses speculation that a three-handed deal was struck and explains why he returned to his day job just days after becoming poker's world champion.
Chad and Connor also break down Ari Engel capturing his thirteenth WSOP Circuit gold ring, The Hendon Mob Mid-Major Championship at Thunder Valley Casino, and both Yin Tao and Steve O'Dwyer winning big at WPT Korea. Toss in updates on the upcoming PokerStars x Poker Power Women's Bootcamp and 15th Annual Ante 4 Autism Charity Event, and there's something for everyone in this episode of the PokerNews Podcast.
