PokerNews Podcast: WSOP Schedule, Juicy Drama & Guest Tony Miles on American Ninja Warrior
On the latest special episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring, Jeff Platt, and Chad Holloway breakdown the recently-revealed 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) schedule. They touch on some of the biggest changes and additions, highlight premier events, and get excited about Doyle Brunson saying he might play select tournaments.
They then recap the US Poker Open, which was won by David Peters for the second year in a row, complete with sideline interviews with Peters and Jordan Cristos. Jeff also breakdowns his bizarre "Sports Cards" interview with Jared Bleznick.
Other stories covered are Chance Kornuth winning the MSPT Venetian, Armando Mesina taking down the RGPS Jamul Casino, and the special one-year anniversary edition of the GGPoker Super Million$. Toss in a pair of "juicy drama" stories in WPT champ Dennis Blieden getting sentenced for his embezzlement crimes and a provocative ACR live-stream causing controversy, and it's an episode not to be missed.
Finally, they welcome guest Tony Miles, who finished runner-up in the 2018 WSOP. Miles is in a well-publicized prop bet with Shaun Deeb where he's bet $5,000 at 20:1 that he can complete a course on American Ninja Warrior. He'll get his shot as he'll appear on the next episode on Monday, June 21 at 9 p.m. ET / p.m. CT. Get all the details on what to expect in this episode.
