With so many personalities and poker related content out there to consume, it may be hard to catch it all but don’t worry. Each Monday, Poker Central’s “Don’t Look Now” series will get you up to speed on everything poker and video from the last week. From highlights, “viral” content, quick hits from social media and on-demand PokerGO content, “Don’t Look Now” brings it all together.

Watch the entire Poker Nights series exclusively on PokerGO.

We’ll stay on the lookout for those, while also keeping our eye on whether or not PLO makes its way to “Poker After Dark.”
Phil Hellmuth is making his rounds. Last week, the 14-time WSOP bracelet winner was on Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” podcast to discuss the World Series of Poker and his new autobiography and this weekend, Hellmuth was in the studio recording the audio book version of the aptly titled, The Poker Brat. The 360-degree video may be quick but with every angle covered, the video gives Hellmuth fans exciting and unprecedented access to just one part of Hellmuth’s life.
Thank god there was no 360-degree video of whatever this is…
