The first installment of new Poker After Dark episodes captivated poker fans last week and another week of the rebooted series is almost in the books. After two nights of winner-take-all sit and go action, the “Voices Carry” finale is set to begin on PokerGO, with another entertaining lineup competing for a $150,000 payout.
Jason Koon, who was the feature of a recent Pokerography episode and made his Poker After Dark debut last night, returns to action. Koon finished 5th last night, after cashing in a few ARIA High Rollers this past weekend, and the professional isn’t the only High Roller specialist competing in tonight’s $25K sit and go.
Igor Kurganov, fresh off his €50,000 Super High Roller victory at the PokerStars Championship Barcelona series, makes his Poker After Dark debut, along with his long-time girlfriend Liv Boeree. The two won their first World Series of Poker bracelets this summer, when they took down the $10,000 Tag Team Championship, but the competitive couple will be against each other tonight.
The last professional in tonight’s lineup, Canadian Greg Mueller, has made a few Poker After Dark appearances and brings nearly $3 million in career tournament earnings to an already tough table. The former professional hockey player also boasts two WSOP bracelets and countless other television appearances, which could make him one of the most experienced players we’ve seen so far on Poker After Dark.
The two players that round out tonight’s “Voices Carry” lineup may be new to televised poker but are used to bright lights and cameras. Hollywood producer Randall Emmett has over 100 IMDB credits on his resume, including producing the 2013 thriller Lone Survivor. Eric Worre is an entrepreneur, network marketing expert, trainer and published author, who has also amassed nearly $700,000 in career poker tournament earnings.
The diverse lineup should end “Voices Carry” week with a bang and you can watch the high stakes action on PokerGO when cards get in the air at 8 PM ET.
