Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - On the Pokercast this week: Mike and Adam are joined by high stakes mixed cash game specialist Melissa Burr (@burrrrrberry) whose in the midst of a breakout year at the WSOP. Melissa was on break of yet another deep run, this time in the prestigious Poker Players Championship event at the Rio. The guys talk everything WSOP again this week including the first ever Dealers Choice event which spotlighted another incident involving Brandon Cantu, a deep run from Phil Laak in the 6max PLO event, and a 2nd bracelet win for German star George Danzer. Away from the tables, the guys discuss an overzealous Daniel Negreanu fan, Vanessa Selbst's rise to the #1 ranked player in the world and yet another cringe-worthy interview from the one and only Doug Lee.
