On a special episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Chad Holloway, Connor Richards, and Matt Hansen talk all things World Poker Tour (WPT) World Championship, a festival that is currently underway.

Hear about highlights from the Premier Meet-Up Game (MUG), including appearances by Gus Hansen and Phil Ivey. While there, Connor also caught up with WPT Hostess Lynn Gilmartin and Wynn Director of Poker Operations Ryan Beauregard for behind-the-scenes chats on what all is happening.

Chad also chats with WPT President Adam Pliska about all the hard work that went into the WPT World Championship, thoughts on offering the $40 million guarantee, and what poker players can expect.

The crew then offer their thoughts on whether or not the guarantee will be hit, what field size they think the championship event will get, and make a trio of bold predictions.

Finally, Chad sat down with last year’s champion, Eliot Hudon, to ask whether or not he’ll attempt a title defense, how last year’s $4-million win changed his life, and what tips he has for poker players looking to follow in his footsteps.
