Major Wager PokerGO

PokerGO Original Series: Major Wager | A Review

Major Wager is a lighthearted five-episode series featuring some of poker’s most popular players competing against one another in off-the-felt activities (i.e., who can do it better?). The losers of each wager face humiliating punishments.

Players featured include Daniel Negreanu, Samantha Abernathy, Antonio Esfandiari, Brian Rast, and Jeff Gross, and the show is hosted by Joey Ingram. A fun show that’s a nice addition to PokerGO’s lineup of original programming.
