On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Jeff Platt, Sarah Herring, and Chad Holloway discuss the series of dramas that plagued the WPT Venetian including the seat draw controversy that had Jared Jaffee exploding on Twitter and the tweet from Fedor Holz proclaiming a “Severe Emergency” for Roland Rokita. The team discusses their views on Matt Savage’s ruling and how the tournament ultimately played out.
Plus, an update on the Fedor Holz vs Limitless Challenge, the huge scores in the SuperMillions on GGpoker, the ongoing saga with Vanessa Kade, and more.
