On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Jesse Fullen and Chad Holloway come to you from the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP)!
Registration on the 2021 WSOP $10,000 Main Event closed with 6,550 players! Find out how things stacked up during Day 4 play including a deep run by Chris Moneymaker. They also talk about Pennsylvania math teacher John Coyle, who qualified for the WSOP Main Event for just $5, as well as a pair of big hands -- quads-over-quads on the live stream and the cracked aces money bubble hand suffered by Kevin Campbell.
They also welcome special guest Michael Graydon from Birmingham, Alabama, who was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer seven months ago. The poker community stepped up to support the 40-year-old husband & father of two. A number of players came together to fund Graydon's trip to the WSOP this year including an entry to the Main Event. Lára Neacy met with him just before he took his seat for Day 1D to hear his story & new perspective on life.
Finally, get an update on the current Player of the Year standings as the WSOP enters its home stretch.
