In the latest edition of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring, Chad Holloway, and Jesse Fullen talk about the recent Hustler Casino Live (HCL) stream featuring heavy influences and a couple of poker pros. One of those pros, Phil Hellmuth, caused quite a stir after finding himself in a controversial spot. Find out what happened, as well as the big winner and losers from the game, in this episode.

Plus, you can hear about Southern poker pro Moe Moenini's tragic murder in Biloxi, tennis legend and former poker ambassador Boris Becker's jail sentence, and a movie being made about Doyle Brunson's life, which will be written and produced by Justin "Boosted J" Smith. The crew also highlight winners from the MSPT Sycuan, RGPS Seminole Coconut Creek, bestbet Jacksonville Spring Series, and EPT Monte Carlo.

Finally, Sarah chats with Unibet Ambassador Dara O’Kearney about a plethora of topics including his various books, how he found his way into poker, and transitioning from playing to incorporating coaching.
