Competing poker is still alive and well if the numbers for this year’s World Series of Poker (WSOP) are any signs. The WSOP kicks off with an opening weekend with the Big 50 breaking the record for the largest live championship in events with 28,371 entries.
This good chance runs through the entire series culminating with Main Moment drawing the 2nd largest number of entries in its 50 year history. 8,569 players competed for the title of world poker champion. On the morning of July 17, Hossein Ensan defeated Dario Sammartino and recognized a gold bracelet and $ 10 million.
ESPN does a fantastic job broadcasting live poker which can turn out to be an evergreen to entertain and educate the KaptenPoker stop. You can learn some of it from looking at live poker as well as not just an edited versus giving hands and conditions that are very attractive to the audience’s attention.
Nick Schulman, 3x WSOP bracelet champion and dreaded poker observer, made a comment on this year’s Main Event, which has some big suggestions. When he said he wasn’t looking at the Main Event to learn poker playing techniques, a Twitter war erupted which probably resulted in him being removed from turning into a guest observer while the event remained.
Schulman, an excellent game analyst, gave him some expert insights into the games, which he played at the highest levels. He was right on the level of play, and I agree with him. Nick didn’t back down and went on Twitter to defend his idea: “The competition was soft with some fantastic players facing off.”
The nine finals played so much poker the little ball made the game very slow. One of them was a young amateur player by the name of Kevin Maahs from Chicago about to decide to slow the game down to a creep, seriously destroying the live broadcast. I really believe the nine finals, with the exception of the champions, hope they can get back to that table and roll their hands back again.
Most shared during their exit interviews that it was the happiest time in their lives and would like to thank their family and friends for their help. I respect every player who counts on driving through 8,560 players to get to the nine finals and payouts paid $ 1 million.
I think about that money, which for most of the young poker players, is a living development that changes the decisions made at the final table. Sammartino, who was in the 2nd row, wore a tuxedo wonderfully and had the most experience of all the players at the final table as well as the audience’s adoration. Forever bracelet champion, Phil Hellmuth, and my wife, guess he can be the winner of everything.
Sammartino made some great reads from the hands of other foes but also made a number of major mistakes that could haunt him when he sees the hand broadcast again after the show. He has colleagues who flew in from Italy to work on rooting for himself for the side of a crowd of cheerleading admirers to keep us entertained.
At one point, Ensan, who had a group of loud admirers on the tracks, had to haul his hands to expect Sammartino admirers to cool him off. Some of the final table players seemed bound for comrades and not for competitors to be happy to watch. All live in dreams.
In what appears to be the last hand of the Main Event, the Ensan has pocket kings, and its counterpart has a balanced draw and a straight draw, multiple Pocket kings haul, and Sammartino should be “happy” with $ 6 million.
It was a fine ending for the historic WSOP. One thing is certain – for us poker enthusiasts, we are ready for the 2020 WSOP.
