The PokerGO way back machine plays another classic track today with the release of the opening episodes from the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event. The money bubble is already gone when action opens on Day 4 and 661 players remain with a chance to win the $7.6 million first-place prize.
Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth highlight the first four episodes of the 2015 Main Event which are now available on-demand on PokerGO. The two have played their fair share of poker against one another and make a rare appearance side-by-side relatively early in an event.
December was a month to remember when the 20 combined bracelets of the two players went heads up to close out “Holidays with Hellmuth” on Poker After Dark.
The stakes are even higher in the World Series of Poker and one of them has their run cut short by the other in a dramatic coin flip.
Viewers also get their first look at eventual champion Joe McKeehen, who opens the day as the chip leader. McKeehen displays a dominance of poker all the way to the finish line and the hands he gets involved in on Day 4 are a testament to his great play.
As expected on a Day 4, there are more notables in play than you can count on one hand. Among them include former World Poker Tour Player of the Year Mukul Pahuja, Olympic medalist Fatima Moreira de Melo, and Triple Crown winner Jake Cody. All find themselves in peril during the episode and have work to do to make Day 5.
Last but far from least is Poker After Dark stalwart Antonio Esfandiari. The always entertaining Esfandiari puts his full theatrics on display as he escapes danger on more than a few occasions. This is far from the first deep Main Event run for Esfandiari, who made the final three tables in 2009.
The most recent Poker After Dark appearance for Esfandiari was “Moving Violations” week with Don Cheadle and Jennifer Tilly also featured.
Esfandiari is back in the saddle a month from now when the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl kicks off at ARIA.
Only 237 players remain by the end of play on Day 4 with a few of the notables mentioned above not among them. Who hits the rail early? Subscribe to PokerGO today and find out.
