PN Podcast: Cyber Attacks, Airball Down $8 Million & Guest Andrew Lichtenberger Talks Octopi Poker
On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Chad Holloway, Connor Richards, and Matt Hansen discuss the recent cyber attacks impacting MGM Resorts, poker players being banned from Australian casinos without explanation, and Soukha Kachittavong winning a second PokerStars Summer Series tournament. Plus, they highlight winners from the PokerStars WCOOP including Parker "Tonkaaaa" Talbot, Espen Jorstad, and Benny Glaser; and share details on Global Poker's new Celebrity Campaign.
Chad then chats with guest Andrew "Lucky Chewy" Lichtenberger, who talks about his new poker venture Octopi Poker, which you can check out at OctopiPoker.ai. The poker pro also talks about his upcoming poker plans, which will include returning to the Poker Masters looking for another title.
Oh, and we'd be remiss to add that the crew also talks about Nik Airball's reported $8 million downswing, which you can catch at the end of the show.
Listen to those stories and more on the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast.
