They also chat with a pair of guests. First, Shaun Yaple of California's Hustler Casino joins the show to talk about the return of poker, the upcoming Hustler Casino Live show, and remembering the late Larry Flynt.

Then, former November Niner Jesse Sylvia talks to Sarah about poker in Vegas, his plans for the WSOP, and his new poker endeavor, Floptimal, with Russell Thomas.
