This week on the Pokercast: We didn’t think it was possible, we really didn’t… but we managed to fit even more guests on this week’s show than last week because they were all so good we couldn’t say no! A 6 guest extravaganza as we near the end of the 2015 WSOP, but the news is still in full swing. It’s Canada Day and the show kicks off with Adam bringing up a podcaster that made history this week before we jump into the recent bracelet events and news. This week in “In Case You Missed It”: A ton of high stakes action is going on at the Aria such as the made for TV cash game featuring the heavy hitters of the poker world, it hasn’t been produced for TV yet but it has been live streaming on Twitch for you to watch with commentary by Jamie Staples. Jamie joins us from Vegas to talk about what he’s seen so far, some notable pots and what we can expect to see going forwards. There are also a handful of gold bracelet winners at the Rio this week and we managed to snag 2 of them while on break from the $10K HORSE. The one and only Eli Elezra joins us to talk about his win in Stud, how he maintains a love of the game and the state of the high stakes mixed games in Vegas. Then good Canadian kid Jonathan Duhamel joins us to talk about his win in the One Drop, the dynamic between Hellmuth and Colman at that final table, a few hands and of course a little hockey talk. Other bracelet events are talked about as well as an update to the Brian Hastings multi accounting scandal and more. Scott Vener also joins us on this episode, Scott has worked on many popular TV shows such as Entourage, 90210 and Ballers. Scott recently had a deep run in a $5k at the series too. He joins us to talk about bubbling a One Drop satellite last year, what it takes to score a movie, a music recommendation and his new radio show in Pharrell. After the second break a legend from the Pokercast forums joins us in studio for a short chat. Steve Day joins us from the Isle of Man to talk Pokerstars, the guys review some epic tweets in “140 or less” and answer your mail!
