Full Episode Description
On this episode of the Pokercast - Phil Hellmuth sold a WSOP package on a staking site, but was the price right? Also, a couple make it down to the final 3 in a $5k tournament at the Venetian and a ton of ethics questions arise. To begin, Terrence is down in Vegas and gives us a live update of his WSOP then we get into the news:  Our top stories this week have sparked a lot of debate recently. Phil Hellmuth sold shares to a WSOP Turbo event at 1.8/1 and people were very upset, but was the outrage justified? Plus Alex Foxen and Kristen Bicknell, who are a couple, get three handed in the MSPT $5k event at the Venetian with a lot of money on the line at a televised final table. Some soft play and collusion was alleged from the poker world and we break down the hand in question. We’ve also got some WSOP updates and notable bracelet winners from the last couple weeks of action. In 140 or less there are some amazing WSOP and World Cup tweets. In the Mailbag questions include what to do with your bankroll when it’s not in action, a defender of LA cash game etiquette and we end with a hand Adam played.
