Today’s guest on Chasing Poker Greatness is the past winner of a WSOP gold bracelet, is a nationally syndicated poker columnist, and is the PokerNews USA Executive Editor Chad Holloway.
If there’s a major poker event or news story anywhere in the world, you can be pretty sure Chad has covered it. His career in the world of poker as a writer, editor, and player now spans nearly 15 years.
As you’re about to learn, Chad’s foray into the world of cards began pretty normally while he was schooling it up at Tulane University but, instead of immersing himself in the world of poker through daily grinding on the green felt, instead he integrated the world of poker into his life through his writing, creativity, and genuine love of the game.
Today you’re going to learn all about Chad’s origin story into the world of poker, how he felt winning a WSOP gold bracelet, and, near the end of the episode, about an incredible project he’s working on that involves a former WSOP Main Event champ & nosebleed regular who has mysteriously fallen off the grid over the past couple of decades.
Being a human who loves all things poker history and lore, you won’t be very surprised to learn that our discussion into Chad’s passion project went at least 30 minutes after we stopped recording.
So now, without any further ado, I bring to you a man who routinely chases poker greatness, and does everything in his power to spread his love of this beautiful game far and wide… Chad Holloway.
