PokerNews Podcast: Jesse Sylvia Hustler Casino's Shaun Yaple

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.

Big thanks to the special sponsor this week in Elite Chip Care.
