Next they dive into the Big One for One Drop covering some of the exciting and just plain bizarre action that went down during this historic event. Fan favorite Neil Channing stopped by the makeshift studio and slapped on a headset to share his thoughts on the uber high-roller tournament and help speculate how certain players managed to roll up the $1 million buy-in. In forum static the guys talk poker gossip including a nasty public break-up, the upcoming WSOP Two Plus Two party at the MGM Grand and of course give away the password for the July 8th Poker Stars VIP Club Invitational for PokerCast listeners.
