Poker After Dark returned to PokerGO on the eve of the Super High Roller Bowl lottery with one of the best high rollers in the game taking the spotlight. The premiere of “Whine and Cheese” week belonged to Tom Marchese. Facing off against seven difficult opponents in the $50/$100 game, Marchese proved himself to be the ‘King’ of the night.
The game was filled with players making their Poker After Dark debut including PokerGO commentator Jeremy Ausmus. Nevada was represented by more than just Ausmus as Dan O’Brien skied in from the slopes of Lake Tahoe to play Poker After Dark for the first time.
O’Brien found himself in the middle of a few fun hands during the session. The first encounter was an undesirable one as O’Brien had to figure out the pieces to Bob Bright’s river puzzle.
That pot lifted Marchese up to $70,000 ahead and he cruised to the dessert line as the game’s big winner.
Marchese returns tomorrow night at 6:00 pm ET to defend his top chef status against Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu.
Don’t forget to watch the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl lottery at 4:00 pm exclusively on PokerGO.
