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.
Every day during the $50,000 Poker Players Championship I will share five of my favorite photos. Here’s a look at Day 2.
About the tournament: Two-time winner Michael Mizrachi bagged up the chip lead while 10-time bracelet winner and Hall of Fame inductee Phil Ivey is right on his heels. The other two-time champ, Brian Rast is still in the hunt while Daniel Negreanu keeps his bid for back-to-back final tables alive. Other big names still in contention include Shaun Deeb, Eli Elezra, Dan Smith, Jean-Robert Bellande and Justin Bonomo.
Among those no longer with us on Day 3: Former winner Matthew Ashton, Gus Hansen, Bryn Kenney, Nick Schulman, Paul Volpe and Mike Matusow. Live streaming of this event starts on Twitch on Day 4, and the final table will be live on PokerGO.
