He joined PokerNews.com in 2016 after working at the World Series of Poker, starting out as a freelance live reporter before joining the team full time as a live reporting manager and editor.
Since May 2021, Yori is guiding the editorial, social and multimedia output to represent the PokerNews brand and tone of voice, while also overseeing the Live Reporting operations. Earlier, Yori has been spearheading the live reporting department together with Executive Editor US Chad Holloway.
