William Kassouf: Everything He Has To Say All In One Place

Love him or loath him, it looks like he is here to say.

If you’ve been watching any of the ESPN World Series of Poker coverage this year you’ll know the name William Kassouf.

He is the Brit that has divided opinion both on and off the tables; is the self proclaimed king of speech play —and tanked more times than I care to remember during the WSOP.

Making the most of his new found fame Kassouf has taken to all the podcasts out there; joining the likes of Daniel Negreanu on the Full Contact Podcast and Joey Ingram on the Poker Life Podcast. Kassouf has even created his own website.
