WCOOP 2019 is officially in the history books now. It was another huge success, smashing records over the course of 219 events and crowning champions both new and familiar. This week’s guest, three-time WSOP bracelet winner Benny “RunGodLike” Glaser, is one of the latter. He enjoyed a great run during the series, earning his second WCOOP title and finishing runner-up in two other events.

Glaser joins Stapes and Hartigan at the 18:20 mark below. If you’re trying to advance in the game, this is one interview you’ll want to listen to. He talks with the guys about whether a win and two seconds is a good result for WCOOP, what it takes to grind the biggest online tournament series in the world, how he went from a guy who watched lots of poker to a guy who wins lots of titles, what pros mean when they talk about studying and “putting in work,” and plenty more.

Prior to Glaser’s appearance, Hartigan pays tribute at the 12:07 mark to British writer Al Alvarez, the author of The Biggest Game In Town who died last week at the age of 90. (Our own Martin Harris also celebrated Alvarez and his work last week.) Following the interview at the 38:07 mark is this week’s Superfan Vs. Stapes, where Shaun King from the United Kingdom battles it out with Stapes to see who knows more about The Magnificent Seven — that’s the 1960 classic, not the recent remake.
