Alec Torelli

On the latest special episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Jeff Platt and Chad Holloway break down the latest stories from the poker world including Phil Hellmuth sweeping Daniel Negreanu in High Stakes Duel Round 2, Phil Ivey winning the $25K WPT Heads-Up Championship, and Brian Altman claiming his third WPT title.

Other stories covered include what the Wire Act ruling not getting appealed means for the future of online poker, a chess grandmaster winning the first event of the GGPoker Super Million$ Season 2, and how the American Ninja Warrior prop bet between Tony Miles and Shaun Deeb turned ugly and personal.

Finally, they welcome guest Alec Torelli, who talks about being stuck in Italy during the pandemic, his booming training site, and the big hand he played against Chad in an episode of Poker Night in America in which he snap-folded a flopped set.

Big thanks to the special sponsor this week in Elite Chip Care, which you can learn more about here.
