PN Podcast: Introducing Connor Richards, Updates on HCL Cheating & Poker in Texas
On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Chad Holloway welcomes new co-host Connor Richards to the show for the first time! The duo discusses big winners from the EPT London, Poker Hall of Famer Erik Seidel's love of music, and recent updates regarding the Hustler Casino Live (HCL) cheating allegations.
They also break down Bill Klein's epic bluff on HCL, Chad Eveslage and Steve Buckner's WPT Five Diamond battle, and why poker in Texas may be in danger. Plus, hear a winner interview from Lee Rzentkowski, who is fresh off winning the MSPT Riverside Main Event for $145K. Similarly, poker presenter Tiffany Michelle had a victory at the WSOP Circuit Lake Tahoe, as did Jarod Minghini, who had a heart-warming win in the Main Event.
Finally, Chad and Connor take a look at a pair of ClubWPT qualifiers who will be headed to Wynn Las Vegas for December's WPT World Championship $15 million GTD tournament!
