Throughout the summer, PokerGO will bring fans across the globe exclusive access to World Series of Poker final table streams and Poker Central will be following all the WSOP action. Each day, “World Series of Pictures” will tell the daily stories from the Rio, so you don’t miss any of the sights of the WSOP.
If looks could kill. 2014 WSOP Main Event champion Martin Jacobson, pictured top, is one of the bigger names at the High Roller for One Drop final table, streaming now on PokerGO, and has one of the most intimidating looks you’ll ever see at the poker table. Nothing is more prestigious than a Main Event victory but if the sharply dressed, sharp-eyed Swede can take down a second WSOP bracelet in this event, Jacobson will instantly write his way into the record books.
The only non-professional at the final table, Canada’s Haralabos Voulgaris is no stranger to the highest stakes. The man known best as an NBA sports bettor also has nearly $2 million in career earnings and even though he came into the day as the shortest stack, Voulgaris avoided being the first man out, as Michael Kamran fell in 9th place.
Yesterday, Dario Sammartino said that the money at the final table was more important than the bracelet and who can blame him? There is over $3.6 million up top for the eventual champion and if things go well after coming in with a top-three stack, the Italian could be claiming the lion’s share of the purse and the gold by night’s end.
Arguably one of the best and most respected high-stakes players in the world, Andrew Robl has come close to WSOP glory before. This is his biggest opportunity though and while most the final table competitors are no stranger to big payouts, Robl may be the only one that regularly plays with so much at stake. Whether that leads Robl to his first bracelet, remains to be seen.
