The World Series of Poker Main Event is a marathon. Luckily, no one has to run 26.2 miles to get caught up on the year’s biggest event. Instead, sprint through the 2018 Main Event with PokerGO and Poker Central by your side.
Cynn’s Championship Call
John Cynn and Tony Miles were locked in a heads up battle that seemed to have no end in sight. The two traded pots for hours and each played near perfect poker until Miles made one wrong move. With $8.8 million and the WSOP Main Event title staring John Cynn in the face, along with the fatigue that comes after two weeks of Main Event pressure, Cynn took a while to call, but eventually did to claim the victory. Watch the final hand play out above and check out more Main Event highlights here.

Poker Central Podcast with John Cynn
