On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Jeff Platt and Chad Holloway come to you from the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP)!

After missing the last episode, Jeff chimes in with his thoughts regarding the Poker Hall of Fame nominations. He also realizes he’s getting crushed by Chad in their 2021 WSOP fantasy bet, and things got even worse when his title defense in the PokerNews WSOP Heads-Up Challenge ended in Round 1.

The duo then chat about Phil Hellmuth making a run at bracelet No. 17, Adam Friedman’s incredible accomplishment winning the $10,000 Dealer’s Choice for the third year in a row, Josh Arieh claiming his third bracelet and making a case for the Poker Hall of Fame, and Michael Addamo continuing his incredible heater by winning the $50K bracelet a month after winning both the Poker Masters and Super High Roller Bowl VI.

Listen to post-victory winner interviews with Friedman, Addamo, and Arieh in this must-listen episode!
