PokerNews Podcast: Ryan “Hagzzz021” Hagerty on Making WSOP Main Event Final Table
In the latest edition of the PokerNews Podcast, Jeff Platt and Chad Holloway tell you why Sarah Herring is MIA. They then share details about their respective weekends in Las Vegas for the 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event and highlight those players fortunate enough to make the final table.
They are then joined by Ryan “Hagzzz021” Hagerty, who was one of the players to secure a seat at the final table. The New Jersey pro talks about his journey and preparing to play in the biggest poker tournament of his life.
In addition, they recap the victory of Argentina's Damian Salas at the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event final table from the international leg on GGPoker, offer updates on both the Daniel Negreanu vs. Doug Polk and Phil Galfond vs. Chance Kornuth heads-up challenges, discuss Neymar signing with PokerStars, and finally share their thoughts on PokerGO's High Stakes Poker.
