PokerNews Podcast: Hustler Casino Drama, Scammer Called Out & Happy Birthday, Doyle!


In the latest edition of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring returns to join Chad Holloway and Jesse Fullen in talking about all the latest in the poker industry. That includes the legend himself, Doyle Brunson, celebrating his 89th birthday. Listen to folks like Phil Hellmuth, Eli Elezra, Matt Savage, and Stefanie Ungar wish "Texas Dolly" a happy birthday.

They also dive into the uproar caused by Hustler Casino canceling a $250K GTD tournament after it had already held four flights, discuss Dan Shak getting into hot water in the commodities world, and debate whether or not they could live in Bally's for a year for $100,000, a popular prop bet that was talked about on social media this week.

Other stories include popular streamer Ludwig calling out the same scammer that Ethan “RampagePoker” Yau did, winners from the recently-completed 2022 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open (SHRPO), and the new slate of online bracelets coming to and GGPoker. Finally, the crew remembers three-time bracelet winner Panayote "Pete the Greek" Vilandos, who passed away at the end of July.

Listen to those stories and more in the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast!
