The final Day 1 flight of the World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Event historically tests the limits of the Rio’s Convention Center with the largest flight each year. Monday should be no different with players spread across the Amazon, Brasilia, Miranda and Pavilion Rooms at the start of play. The action kicks off live exclusively on PokerGO from 11:30am – 6:15 pm PT.
Seated at the ESPN Feature Table on the main stage are two of the brightest poker stars today with Daniel Negreanu and Jason Mercier. Negreanu had the WSOP of his career with 11 cashes, six with $10,000 buy-in or more and made four final tables.
