WCOOP 2013: Final Table Friday reprises $10,300 8-Game High Roller
This year's World Championship of Online Poker is upon us and poker purists have a lot to be excited about. Although the huge WCOOP Main Event gets the most headlines (thanks to seven-figure payouts) there's some incredible poker to watch, such as last year's $10,300 8-Game High Roller. In fact, there are so many great final tables that we're going to be posting one up every week to give you some laid back Friday viewing to help you get your head in the right place for the weekend grind.We're calling it Final Table Friday.
Among the players slugging it out were Team PokerStars Pros Daniel "KidPoker" Negreanu and Jason "Jason Mercier" Mercier, PCA Super High Roller champion Scott "gunning4you" Seiver and high stakes grinder Niki "RealAndyBeal" Jelicka. Okay, most us are never going to be mixing it up in a $10k 8-game six-max but if you ever want to play mixed games then you have to watch this guys go at it. They make some great plays. Negreanu folds a must-call losing hand when he's getting ten-to-one pot odds. Most would take the hit, just in case, but that's what separates the men from the boys.
It's a great watch and at 35 minutes isn't going to put too much a dent into your lunch hour.
You can read the full write-up of the action here, but it will be a spoiler if you don't know who ended up winning the bracelet and $253,425 first-place prize.
