The thrilling Poker After Dark cash game action continues on PokerGO on August 21-22 with “Maters of the Main” headlined by the two most recent World Series of Poker Main Event champions, John Cynn and Scott Blumstein!
This $5,000 minimum buy-in cash game with $50/$100 blinds and a $100 big blind ante sees eight players take their seats, each bringing their own unique WSOP Main Event storyline to the table.
No less than five players are making their Poker After Dark debut on this show while John Cynn makes his second straight appearance after playing on “Rise and Grind” week for two straight nights. Blumstein plays on Poker After Dark for the very first time, squaring off against Mickey Craft, one of the 7,221 he beat on his way to a life-changing $8,150,000 score in 2017.
Cynn finds many of this year’s rivals in this Poker After Dark lineup, most notably Tony Miles who he beat heads-up. Miles is a Poker After Dark debutant after collecting $5,000,000 for his second place finish in the 2018 WSOP Main Event. First-timer Kelly Minkin finished 50th in this year’s Main Event, and her deep run received a lot of coverage as she also became the last woman standing for the second time.
Eric Hicks made waves in the Main Event this year, being the first player to cross the 500,000-chip mark after which he openly discussed winning a satellite for this tournament on his iPad while enjoying some beverages. Hicks owned his persona and decked out in a stars and stripes hat, rocking the full grey beard and zipping around the Rio in his scooter, he’ll forever be one of the most memorable 401st-place finishers.
Hollywood music man Scott Vener, most known for his brilliant work on shows such as Enoutrage and Ballers, completed a bucket list item by cashing the Main Event this summer for the first time in 10 tries, and now he’s the fifth first-timer in this week’s lineup.
Last but not least, Poker After Dark mainstay Randall Emmett returns for two more nights of action. Emmett is still looking for his first Main Event cash, but he did get noticed by his grand entrance this year and handing out ice-cream to make up for disrupting the world’s largest poker tournament.
Here’s an overview of both lineups* that will be live on PokerGO starting at 6:00 pm ET on both nights from the PokerGO Studio.
