The first Poker Masters $50,000 event kicked off at 5 pm ET, with exclusive live coverage on PokerGO starting at 8 pm ET and running until the field reaches a final table of seven players. Poker Central Preshow hosts Dave Farra and Remko Rinkema return with daily Poker Masters shows from the ARIA Resort & Casino approximately 45 minutes before the broadcast on PokerGO.

Farra and Rinkema caught lightening in a bottle when they paired up for the Poker Central Facebook Live show during the 2017 World Series of Poker. They discussed breaking news, hosted exclusive interviews and chatted with all manner of players during the Main Event.

They’ll be broadcasting from the floor of the ARIA Poker Room after play already began for Day 1, but will bring you final table previews for all four preliminary $50,000 events. With play already underway, they’ll discuss the overall format of the series, introduce the Poker Masters Purple Jacket™ and certainly touch on Daniel Negreanu’s million dollar side action. 

Viewers can look forward to Farra and Rinkema breaking down the major story lines each day– from who’s in the field, to table draw pairings and which players are leading the chase for the Purple Jacket. 

The Preshow broadcasts each day across Poker Central’s social channels around 45 minutes before action goes live on PokerGO for the day. They have a tentative, rotating cast of guests lined up throughout the eight days of the Poker Masters.
