On the latest special episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Jeff Platt and Chad Holloway highlight more bracelet winners from the GGPoker World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online, discuss the WSOP COVID-19 vaccination requirement (learn details here), and highlight recent winners from the Super High Roller Bowl Europe.

They also give updates on the WPT World Online Championships on partypoker, the 2021 WCOOP on PokerStars, WSOP Online Rio Circuit, and Raminder Singh winning big in the RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) Seminole Coconut Creek.

They also welcome guest Zach Franzi, who steps out of the private high-stakes cash game shadows to talk about his recent appearances on the Poker After Dark, learning the game from poker legend Billy Baxter, and getting over COVID. He also shares a fun pot-limit Omaha (PLO) story involving David "Devilfish" Ulliott and reveals the biggest pot he's ever won (hint: it was seven figures)!

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