The first day of exclusive coverage of the World Series of Poker on PokerGO kicks off Saturday with Day 2 of the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop. The event drew 119 entrants on a shortened Day 1 with 78 players advancing with all the action kicking off on the Feature Table set at 2:30 pm local time.
Martin Jacobson leads an all-star field of players that includes Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu, Dan Smith, Fedor Holz, Brian Rast, Cary Katz and the most recent bracelet winner Igor Kurganov.
The feature table to start the broadcast features Doug Polk, Daniel Negreanu, Connor Drinan, Sergio Aido, Koray Aldemir and Jack Salter.
David Tuchman returns to the Rio and anchors the news desk. He'll be rotating out guests throughout the summer and today Jeff Gross joins him for the broadcast. Nick Schulman pleased audiences with his smooth baritone voice for five days during the Super High Roller Bowl, but he won’t be in the booth as he bagged an above-average stack for Day 2.
Lon McEachern and Norm McDonald's are on live commentary for Day 2 with their legendary give and take.
Due to player request, Day 1 was trimmed from ten levels to eight levels. Day 2 is scheduled for ten, 60-minute levels with a 15-minute break every two levels and a 60-minute dinner break after six levels of paly – around 9:30 pm PT.
Fedor Holz won nearly $5 million in the 2016 event for his first bracelet that drew 183 entrants.
From start to finish, over the next three days PokerGO will broadcast the entirety of the High Roller with One Drop. Each day will be archived with event-specific highlight clips.
