Drew Amato has been covering the World Series of Poker since 2014. This year he’s covered the U.S. Poker Open and Super High Roller Bowl for Poker Central. Twice per week, Amato will share his favorite images from the World Series of Poker. Enjoy this recurring piece as, in his own words, Amato describes the biggest moments in the game.
We are back for another starting flight in the 2018 Main Event and it’s already night and day compared to Day 1A. Yesterday’s flight saw 925 players take their shot at the most prestigious title in poker, but the field was contained in 3 sections of the Amazon room. Today, however, the field was spread out throughout Amazon, Brasilia, and Pavilion, making the increase in participation very evident. When registration closed, 2,379 had bought in for $10,000, and here’s a look at my favorite moments from Day 1B.
