A busy month of new Poker After Dark episodes continued with two “Masters of the Main” cash games. Both $50/$100 sessions featured World Series of Poker Main Event legends, including Scott Blumstein and John Cynn. The last two champions weren’t the only big names though, as Randall Emmett and Ben Lamb returned, while Kelly Minkin, Scott Vener, and more made their debuts.
The opening “Masters of the Main” session was all about Ben Lamb. The high stakes pro has two Main Event final table appearances on his tournament resume, but cash games are where Lamb may be best. He proved that again as he made good on his Poker After Dark return. John Cynn and Kelly Minkin dominated PokerGO’s Main Event coverage this summer and both played a big role during the first night of play. Cynn found himself all-in over and over again, while Minkin pulled out all the tricks against Hollywood’s Randall Emmett.
The finale featured a handful of new competitors, including Jay Farber and Jeremy Ausmus. Both Main Event finalists were pulled from The Bullpen and closed out the session, but it was the last two Main Event champs that played he biggest pot of the week. John Cynn and Scott Blumstein collided and Cynn picked off a bluff to end “Masters of the Main” as the biggest winner.
