The World Series of Poker Main Event started with over 7,000 players dreaming of making the final table and heading into Day 7 of the Main Event, that dream is still alive for 27 players. Three tables will return to the Brasilia Room at 12 PM PT and by night’s end, just nine will remain.
Much like yesterday’s Day 6 coverage, the day will be streamed from start to finish on both PokerGO and ESPN 2. Day 7 opens on PokerGO at 12:30 PM PT and then moves to ESPN 2 for prime time coverage from 4 PM PT to 6 PM PT. The journey to the final table will then return to PokerGO at 6 PM PT, with live coverage continuing until the field is down to the final nine players.
Coverage starts with two Brits leading the main feature table, as young gun Jack Sinclair and John Hesp have taken very different paths to Day 7 of the Main Event. Yesterday’s start of day chip leader, Robin Hegele, along with American’s Bryan Piccioli and Michael Ruane, who is still alive after final tabling last year, round out the lineup.
The first outer table features two of the biggest stacks in the room, Christian Pham, who is only playing this event because of a last-chance satellite victory, and Ben Lamb, the former November Niner and WSOP Player of the Year. There is a stark contrast between those two leaders and from top to bottom, the outer table lineup may be the most interesting, with Daniel Ott, Jake Bazeley and Marcel Luske also on Table 2.
The other outer table houses the second-biggest stack back for Day 7, France’s Valetine Messina and another Frenchman looking to make Main Event history. Antoine Saout finished 3rd in the 2009 Main Event and is one of three players looking to make another final table in the modern era. The rest of the lineup is looking to join that fraternity for the first time, including Main Event first-timer Scott Blumstein, tag-teamer David Guay and Argentina’s Richard Dubini.
Three tables of names and narratives return and throughout Day 7, PokerGO and ESPN 2 will bring you all the action from the WSOP Main Event. For replays of past WSOP Main Event session, subscribe and watch on PokerGO.
