On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring, Chad Holloway, and Jeff Platt bring you all the latest news and highlights from the poker world.

That includes talking to guest Doug Polk about defeating Daniel Negreanu in their highly-publicized heads-up duel. He shares thoughts on Negreanu’s play and tanking, explains some side action and coaching details, offers a take on how he sees himself as a HUNL player in today’s poker world, and tells listeners what’s next for him.

In addition, they interview five-time WSOP Circuit ring winner Scott Stewart about his recent win in the bestbet Jacksonville Winter Open $2,000 Main Event, good for $177,817.

Toss in stories about GGPoker applying for a Pennsylvania license, Twitter PokerShares drama between Terrence Chan and Mike “Timex” McDonald, Johnny Oshana winning the MSPT Poker Bowl V, and Sami Kelopuro taking down a hattrick of big buy-in online events in a single day, and it’s another great show of the PokerNews Podcast.
