It’s finally here! The 2017 WSOP Main Event kicked off today, and Poker Central was front and center for all the action. On this podcast you can listen to the following topics:
Former champions Qui Nguyen, Martin Jacobson and Jerry Yang all played and the former two advanced, keeping their hopes alive for another magical run. 3-time Super Bowl champion Richard Seymour sat at the feature table for most of the day and bagged up 114,000 chips.
On this show, you can listen to interviews with Doug Polk, Alex Foxen, Jonathan Little, Jen Shahade and Maria Ho. The latter plays the Main Event on Day 1c, but she was involved with the ESPN/PokerGO broadcast of the Main Event. Sam Grafton bagged up one of the biggest stacks of the field, and we also spoke to him.
A total of 795 players entered Day 1a, 30 more than last year, and 576 made it into Day 1b. The Poker Central Podcast will be there daily to recap all the action and keep you up to speed with all the latest from Las Vegas!
