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.

Poker After Dark opened the week with more high stakes action and a lot of volume. While Jean-Robert Bellande, who was recently on Heads Up With Remkolikely fancies himself a talker, his table banter doesn’t even come close to William Kassouf’s. The British professional lived up to “The King of Speech Play” nickname he earned during the 2016 World Series of Poker and for putting up with Kassouf throughout Tuesday’s $25K sit and go, Jean-Robert, along with everyone that was not a fan of Kassouf’s speech play, earned a much-needed sip of wine.

There is only one place to watch brand-new episodes of Poker After Dark and because we don’t want to make it seem like we are strictly trying to push product (subscribe here), here is Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree to tell you where you can catch the action. After giving PokerGO a shout out, Boeree bested her $25K winner-take-all table to make good on her PAD debut.

Boeree’s PokerStars teammate, Jeff Gross, has been making good on YouTube and Twitch for the last few months. Gross tracked his entire World Series of Poker grind through his online vlog series and Gross has taken his show on the road this week, posting video updates of the PokerStars Championship Barcelona series, his first PokerStars event as a sponsored pro. The best part about Gross’ vlogs, they include much more than just poker, with this episode featuring some high stakes shout outs and one of the world’s biggest DJs. 

Last, but certainly not least, is the greatest of all-time proving, once again, that he is the greatest of all-time. Phil Hellmuth played in the first-ever Poker Night in America “King of the Hill” heads up event this week and after dispatching heads up specialist Doug Polk in the opening round, beat Daniel “Jungleman” Cates in the championship match. Hellmuth came back from a massive chip deficit in the finals, and pulled off this mind-blowing bluff, en route to winning $200,000 and adding the KOTH Championship Belt to an already packed trophy case.
