DAT Poker Podcast is Back with a Tribute to Layne Flack

Layne Flack leads off the discussion on the latest episode of DAT, which also covers Daniel's recent success and the future of the WSOP live series.

Daniel, Adam, and Terrance are back with episode 105 of the DAT Poker Podcast, bringing the usual banter, poker stories, and inside information that viewers have come to expect. DNegs joined the crew from his second home in Cabo, as he gets into the WSOP Bracelet grind on GGPoker.

The podcast covers a wide range of topics this episode, but begins with a heartfelt tribute to Layne Flack, who recently passed away. Negreanu has a long history with “Back-to-Back” Flack, and shared a number of stories from the heyday of poker, including a few from the early days when the two were both staked by Ted Forrest.

It is a lovely tribute to one of the big personalities of the game, gone too soon. The crew moved on to other topics, including some hand histories from Negreanu’s recent WSOP bracelet play, as well as his recent success at the Poker GO Cup.

One of the more interesting segments deals with the bombshell news that WSOP will be moving live venues for the 2022 series, after many years at the Rio. Catch all the conversation from the latest DAT Poker Podcast at the link below.

Moorman Parts Ways with 888poker

Breaking: Is Chris Moorman leaving 888poker?

The roster of 888poker pros got a bit later this week. British poker pro Chris Moorman, who has been representing online poker room 888poker since 2016, is leaving the brand.

The official 888poker Twitter account confirmed the move on August 5, and the move follows the recent exits of Ana Marquez and Martin Jacobson from the brand. The move comes on the heels of Moorman’s second bracelet win after he took down an online bracelet in July during the domestic US Bracelet series on WSOP.com.

888poker is still well represented by familiar faces however. Even with the exit of Moorman, Dominik Nitsche and Kara Scott are still representing the brand, along with streamers like Vivian Saliba. More details are sure to come on this story, so stay tuned to find out what the next chapter in the Book of Moorman will be.

Moorman Binks WSOP Online Event for $102K

The tournament wizard wins $800 Turbo Deepstack to claim bracelet number two.

So… Chris Moorman has won another tournament then—Plus ca change!

Creating one of the least surprising stories of the year, the online phenom proved that he still has the skills to pay the bills. The only problem seems to be that he’s running out of places to store the bling.

It was Moorman’s second bracelet, ending a four year wait since winning his first in 2017. And it proved a happier scenario for him than his Gold Ring win in January, where taking down the title meant defeating his wife heads up.

Not everybody was quite so pleased for him though:

Moorman neatly summarized his victory, tweeting: “ Clicked some buttons and won a @WSOP bracelet tonight.” If only we’d known it was so easy.

If you’d like an insight into how he does it, you’re in luck. His publishers—D&B—wasted no time in knocking 25% off the price of his books. Read ‘em and reap.
