Read Remko on the Rail during the 2018 World Series of Poker to stay up to date with all the latest from the Rio. Yesterday was Day 16 of the WSOP, and here’s a recap of the action and a look ahead at what’s to come on both PokerGO and Twitch.
Rock ‘n Roll on Twitch
Rock legend and the producer of Nirvana’s In Utero, Steve Albini has been a poker fan for decades, competing at the World Series of Poker for many years. Albini recorded his first cash in the $1,500 Seven Card Stud back in 2010, and last night he won that very event by defeating a final table that included plenty of big names. Rewatch the entire final table in the Twitch player below.
Watch WSOP Event #31 – $1500 Seven Card Stud – FINAL TABLE from PokerCentral on www.twitch.tvThe final day of this event started with both Chris ‘Jesus’ Ferguson and Jeff Lisandro eyeing their seventh bracelet, and along with two women in contention – Katherine Fleck and Esther Rossi – making this into a highly intriguing showdown. After Albini coolered Ferguson in a big pot with four players remaining, the rocker managed to pull away and coast into a heads-up battle versus the fearless Lisandro.
The Aussie with four Stud bracelets, winning WSOP Player of the Year in 2009, grabbed the chip lead right away and had Albini down to just 9 big bets before losing ground. The heads-up battle lasted nearly as long as the rest of the final table, but in the end, Albini was victorious taking home $105,629.
