Some of poker’s greatest players are in action as the Main Event continues, Tuesday, Aug. 17, at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN. WSOP bracelet winners Daniel Negreanu, Robert Mizrachi, Annie Duke and Chau Giang are all hunting for top prize and cash game specialists Patrick Antonius and Tom Dwan are hoping that their online success can translate to riches in the most prestigious live tournament in the world.
Day one sessions draw to a close as two of the biggest names from last year’s November Nine are back in action, including 2009 Main Event runner-up Darvin Moon and eight-time bracelet winner Phil Ivey along with a living legend of poker, two-time World Champion and 10-time bracelet winner Doyle Brunson. All have their sights set on the nearly $9 million prize and coveted gold bracelet.
