Poker Cast 415 - Benny Glaser, Bracelets & #Prexit
Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - This week on the Pokercast, we had to miss last week but we are back with a vengeance. It’s the last week before #Prexit and we’ve got all your WSOP and poker world news. Adam updates us on what he’s been dealing with while Terrence has some revelations about tournament poker. In the news this week: There have been a ton of bracelets awarded at the series since our last show and we run through the important stories from the rio. Stories including Chris Ferguson is not only playing the WSOP, but now in the top 10 of POY standing and did Jared Bleznick get banned?
Benny Glaser is our guest this week and we get him on the line straight from the Rio. Benny, after winning 2 bracelets this series is now the all time WSOP bracelet holder for the UK. We talk to him about crushing us in fantasy, how the grind is wearing him out and some ridiculous hands he’s seen along the way.
After Benny, we get into some reviews, your great mail and review more WSOP tweets in “140 or less”. We also run through some 2-7 and PLO hands in the Rossco report. Lastly, it is the final Pokercast invitational on Pokerstars this Sunday at 10am PST and it would be awesome for as many people as possible to play. The password is within the show (before the first break).
