On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Jeff Platt and Chad Holloway come to you from the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP)!

They highlight Doyle Brunson's much-bantered return to the WSOP since his last event in 2018, and also offer an audio clip from Phil Ivey discussing whether or not he'll be at the WSOP this year. Chad then talks about partying with Ivey at the launch party for his NFT while Jeff offers a 2021 WSOP Player of the Year update.

Toss in bracelet winner interviews with Shaun Deeb, Brian Rast, Darrin Wright, Farzad Bonyadi, Nicholas Julia, and Gershon Distenfeld, and it's a must-listen episode of the PokerNews Podcast. Speaking of Distenfeld, find out how and why he donated all his $204,000 in winnings to charity.
