The PokerGO streaming schedule for the World Series of Poker called for three straight days of $10,000 Heads Up Championship coverage starting today, Wednesday, June 7 at 3:30 PM PT but due to popular demand, PokerGO has added coverage of the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship to today’s slate.
That event returns with Daniel Negreanu heads up against Abe Mosseri for the bracelet, with Mosseri holding just over a 2:1 chip lead. Mosseri is looking for his first WSOP victory since 2009, while Negreanu is looking to add a seventh bracelet to his trophy case, which would also be his first Las Vegas-based bracelet since 2008.
That isn’t to say that Negreanu hasn’t been close over the last few years. Kid Poker has over a dozen final table appearances at the World Series since his last triumph but he has broken through internationally, with wins in Australia and France in 2013.
Negreanu has also already come close to a bracelet this year, as his team finished 3rd in the $10,000 Tag Team Championship during the first week of the series. Instead, it was Igor Kurganov and Liv Boeree claiming the title and their first career bracelets but Negreanu is clearly off to the best WSOP start of his career.
Today, it is all about Kid Poker and high stakes. After PokerGO streams the end of the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship the focus shifts to the $10,000 Heads Up Championship. The world’s best players will compete in the purest form of poker and over the next three days, PokerGO will follow all the action until a champion is crowned on Friday, June 9.
PokerGO then continues coverage of the WSOP with the final table of the $1,500 No Limit Hold’em 6-Max final table on Saturday, June 10. To stay up to date on future changes to the WSOP streaming schedule, follow PokerGO on Twitter.
