Mike ‘Timex’ McDonald Discusses Current Events on Poker Life Podcast

Timex and Papi talk WSOP 2017, PokerShares and PokerGO.

PokerShares.com CEO and $13 million live poker tournament cash prize winner Mike McDonald (aka ‘Timex’) sat down with Poker Life Podcast host Joey Ingram this week to discuss the Super High Roller Bowl, 48th annual World Series of Poker, and the all-new PokerGO subscription service.

The conversation comes on the backdrop of a wildly successful Day 1 Super High Roller Bowl live cast offering from Poker Central, which attracted 25,000 poker enthusiasts on Twitch alone before being placed behind a PokerGO subscription service paywall.

DISCUSS: PokerGO Subscription Service (May 27, 2017)

As the community weighs-in and prepares for six weeks of live poker action in Las Vegas concluding with the $10,000 buy-in WSOP Main Event, Mike’s PokerShares.com website has gained popularity among fans who have become more active in investing in their favorite poker pros.
