After record-setting Day 1C numbers pushed the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event over the 7,000-player threshold and made this year’s installment the third biggest Main Event of all time, Day 2A/B begin at 11 AM PT. Today’s session will see players return from the first two Main Event starting flights but even though they will be playing at the same time, they will be separated until the entire field combines before Thursday’s Day 3 session.
Today’s coverage will again be broadcast on both PokerGO and ESPN, with play starting on poker’s premier streaming service at 11 AM PT. Ali Nejad and Nick Schulman will commentate the action, which will feature three tables of cards-up coverage. The broadcast will then move to ESPN at 4:30 PM PT and continue until 8 PM PT, with a final half-hour of coverage immediately following on PokerGO, which wraps the day’s stream at 8:30 PM PT.
The feature table will be headlined by defending Main Event champion Qui Nguyen, along with Phil Laak and James Akenhead. The outer tables will feature Gaelle Baumann, who played arguably the most exciting hand of the tournament against Vanessa Selbst on Day 1B, and Barry Greenstein. High-stakes regular and published author Brandon Adams headlines the final outer table.
Replays of the action from the last few days can be found archived on PokerGO and a complete WSOP Main Event streaming schedule can be found here.
