This week on the Pokercast: We’ve got a double dose of bracelet winners from 2016, One of them is playing everything and the other only played one tournament. First, Adam and Ross are in Chicago at Podcast Movement and loving Uber Pool while Terrence is still in Vegas with updates from the WSOP. This week in the news: Lots of great stories from the World Series, big names winning more tournaments while unknowns play insane hands to take down their first. More talk about Chris Ferguson and a scathing article about an interaction with him this year surfaces. Pokerstars leaves 2 markets and thinks about eliminating the micro-micro stakes, and the sad news of a poker player found dead at the Rio. We get into your mail and voicemails as well before we get to our guests. Our first guest is a long time friend of the show but this is his first interview. Ryan Laplante talks about his great summer, his first bracelet and the bittersweet events surrounding his bracelet. Our second guest is Mitchell Towner, Mitch won the Monster Stack this year and it only took him one try! He tells us the story of coming to Vegas to play only one event and binking. He is also a finance professor at University of Arizona, and talks about the “black swan” effect when betting in the poker marketplace.
