Do you love poker? Interested in hearing from best and biggest names in the game like Daniel Negreanu, Doug Polk, Andrew Neeme?  Every week Sarah Herring, who has been nominated for several American Poker Awards, and Jeff Platt who has been covering sports & poker for a decade, bring you news, gossip & interviews from the world of poker.


May 13, 2021

On the latest special episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring, Jeff Platt, and Chad Holloway recap the MSPT Sycuan Casino stop in San Diego, talk possibly coming to Michigan and Pennsylvania, and highlights from the 2021 PokerStars MISCOOP and NJSCOOP.

They also chat with a pair of guests. First, Shaun Yaple of California's Hustler Casino joins the show to talk about the return of poker, the upcoming Hustler Casino Live show, and remembering the late Larry Flynt. Then, former November Niner Jesse Sylvia talks to Sarah about poker in Vegas, his plans for the WSOP, and his new poker endeavor, Floptimal, with Russell Thomas.
