Jason Somerville To Join PokerNews Podcast During 2014 WSOP

PokerNews Podcast

The 2014 World Series of Poker is less than six weeks away, and the entire poker world is starting to think more and more about another summer’s worth of nonstop tournament action at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The popular PokerNews Podcast will be back again this year as well, with a new cohost this time — 2011 WSOP bracelet winner and Ultimate Poker pro Jason Somerville

Somerville will be joining PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Donnie Peters and Senior Editor Rich Ryan every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 1:30 p.m. PST for the hour-long program broadcasting live from the halls of the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Fans will be able to watch the show as it happens on our YouTube channel — it will also be archived in video format — or listen over on iTunes.

Somerville has collected over $2.5 million in career live tournament earnings and will be sharing insight on various events as well as his own play at this year’s WSOP. And as he reports below, he is excited to be joining the PokerNews Podcast team:

This summer the PokerNews Podcast is sure to be better than ever at the WSOP, with new state-of-the-art equipment, a booth right outside of the Amazon Room, fun games, giveaways, and interviews with some of the biggest names in the game.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Jason to the team,” said Ryan of the news. “He brings a second gold bracelet to the squad — thanks, Chad Holloway — adding credibility and a unique lens to the inner workings of the WSOP. The listeners will be able to experience the long summer grind right alongside Jason.”

Until the start of the WSOP, the PokerNews Podcast will be released every Wednesday. Be on the lookout over coming weeks for special guests from EPT Sanremo, the WPT Championship, and the EPT Grand Final.
