PokerNews Podcast: Hellmuth Heater, Drugs on a Plane Guest Corey Paggeot on WSOP Success

On the latest special episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Chad Holloway and Jeff Platt highlight the latest bracelet winners from the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Events including Ryan Hagerty, David Peters, and Chris Moorman, just to name a few.

They also breakdown Phil Hellmuth's match against Nick Wright in the PokerGO High Stakes Duel III, Dapo Ajayi's WPT Choctaw victory, a high-stakes poker player busted for drug possession smuggling drugs into Spain on a private plane, and Scott Robbins suing Borgata for ban damages associated with an ill-advised suicide joke.

Finally, they welcome Solve 4 Why's Corey Paggeot to the show to talk about his recent WSOP Online success, which included nearly capturing a bracelet at two final tables, finishing runner-up in a WSOP Circuit ring event, and then actually capturing a ring a couple of days later, which was the second of his burgeoning career.

Big thanks to the special sponsor this week in Elite Chip Care.
