On the latest special episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring, Jeff Platt, and Chad Holloway talk about the World Series of Poker (WSOP) moving from ESPN to CBS Sports, the online bracelet event schedule, and highlights from the GGPoker Spring Festival, including Lev Gottlieb capturing his fourth title. Toss in Connor Drinan’s epic GGSF comeback win and a discussion on whether or not 2020 WSOP champ Damian Salas is the real deal after winning a PokerStars SCOOP title, and it's another must-listen episode. Plus, they welcome guest Steven Pique, the Director of Poker Operations at Sahara Las Vegas. The industry insider shared his thoughts on opening a poker room in the current climate, the importance of mixed games and competent staff, and his mission to take poker back to its core of allowing players to have fun.
