On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring and Chad Holloway take a look back on the 10th Anniversary of Black Friday, offer highlights from the GGPoker Spring Festival, reflect on the passing of David “Beast” Valdez, and recap Niklas Astedt winning SCOOP and GG Super MILLION$ titles.

Additionally, they chat with Reno-based poker vlogger Ben Deach, who shares his experience creating content while juggling responsibilities as both a news anchor and new father.

Finally, they reveal the winners of the D&B Publishing book giveaway for a copy of Poker Satellite Success by Bernard Lee, last week's guest.
