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.
