HNR 4/15: WPT Final Table, New Poker Movie, Black Friday Anniversary

Dustin Gouker : April 15th, 2012


A World Poker Tour final table, a movie from the Rounders writers, and the anniversary of Black Friday. It’s all in the weekend edition of the PTP Hit and Run.

WPT update: The World Poker Tour’s Vienna stop is at a final table, and heads-up. Get live updates and a look back at the action here. Benjamin “neverscaredb” Wilinofsky reached the final table.

Rewind and Forum Files: We have the top videos and threads of the week. First up, Phil Laak and Tony G at the Party Poker Big Game and Premier League, Daniel Negreanu rants, and a poker face challenge in Rewind. Then, Fighting with Full Tilt Poker, a new poker movie with Affleck and Timberlake, and the WSOP $1 million event in Forum Files.

Speaking of that poker movie: You can get more of the lowdown on the possible film featuring Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake here. We’re guessing it won’t be as good as Rounders.
