Day 3 and Day 4 action in the World Series of Poker Main Event is a formality for the swift cut of the field to below 20 tables. 2011 holds this trend to form with crazy hands taking place all around the Amazon Room. The Day 5 episodes from the 2011 Main Event are now available on PokerGO and feature a preview of what is to come in future days and years.
The legend of Ben Lamb takes full form in this Main Event with a potential Player of the Year banner waiting for him at the finish line. A great all-around player, Lamb stays away from tournaments in favor of lucrative cash games but makes his rare appearances count. Lamb’s 2017 run to the final table certified his status as a living legend. The high stakes action preferred by Lamb is featured in “Racks of Lamb” from Poker After Dark with Pot Limit Omaha on the menu.
Pius Heinz makes a legend for himself with his performance for all the tournament. The Germans are here and Heinz was the first to make a major impact in the United States with his eventual win. Watch Heinz baffle Claudia Crawford in a preflop raising war that leaves Crawford bemoaning Heinz’s aggression.
Other living legends in the Day 5 coverage include five-time bracelet winner Allen Cunningham and David ‘Gunslinger’ Bach. Last summer, Bach won two bracelets to up his career total to three and is in a great position to make a charge in the 2011 Main Event.
We see future stars in the coverage with Seth Davies among them. The Super High Roller Bowler gets lucky to propel himself up the leaderboard and get his first taste of camera time. Watch more of Davies as he prepares for Super High Roller Bowl by watching INSIDERS on PokerGO.
