PN Podcast: Hawkins Pissed, Dwan Drama & Justin "Boosted J" Smith Talks Doyle Brunson Movie
In the latest edition of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring and Chad Holloway discuss Tom Dwan backing out of High Stakes Duel III against Phil Hellmuth (and who a potential replacement might be), why 14-time ring winner Maurice Hawkins is upset with both Chad and PokerNews, and a preview of the upcoming St. Jude "Against All Odds" Charity Event in Las Vegas May 20-21.
They also highlight winners from the Lodge Championship Series, MSPT JACK Cleveland, 888poker Knockout Series, and GGPoker Super MILLION$, which included Artur Martirosian winning it for a record-tying fifth time.
Finally, Chad sits down with former poker pro turned Hollywood producer Justin "Boosted J" Smith to talk about his life after poker and what it's like to be both writing and producing a movie based on the life of the legendary Doyle Brunson.
