In the latest PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring and Chad Holloway welcome guest Jesse Lonis to the show to talk about his career-year in 2021. He’s one of the breakout stars of poker and is primed to continue his ascent by entering the high roller scene. Learn how the 26-year-old went from cash games to playing and crushing some of the biggest poker tournaments in the world.
They then talk about the insanely high rake at Encore Boston Harbor, a player flipping over a poker table at an event in Japan, and give you an update on the case regarding the murder of poker player Susie Zhao. Toss in winners from the bestbet Jacksonville Winter Open, MSPT Bally’s Black Hawk, and WSOP Circuit Horseshoe Tunica and you’ll hear everything you need to know about what’s been happening in the poker world.
