Poker legends get told and retold often, but the reason they endure is because they’re plainly just fascinating. The legends of Wild Bill Hickock, Isildur1, and how the TV show High Stakes Poker came to be are stories that all poker fans love and that can enchant anyone even if they have no interest the game.
There’s been a lot of buzz and anticipation about the impending opening of the all-new PokerGO Studio at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas. A mere week after the grand opening, I got to check out the first ever permanent home for televised poker and it certainly lives up to the hype.
In this photo essay, I’ll take you on a virtual tour of the facilities. Once you check it out, I guarantee that you’ll want to come and visit this place in person; it’s simply phenomenal!
The WSOP has released it’s list of 10 finalist nominees for the 2017 class of the Poker Hall of Fame. While all of them are deserving of induction, the only lock is Phil Ivey. As for the others, it’s anyone’s guess.
This op-ed analyzes the list of the nine other nominees and picks apart which of them are most likely to get nominated. Dave DevilFish Ulliot is perhaps the most deserving player, but he might get “snubbed” by a deserving nominee from the builder category, like Mori Eskandani.
Poker fans will assuredly be in for a real treat once the Super High Roller events series airs on TV. The man responsible for producing these Poker Central events is none other than Mori Eskandani, of Poker PROductions. Having experience putting together shows like High Stakes poker for our viewing pleasure, Eskandani is a legend. He kindly agreed to an interview, which we’re positive you’ll want to read and listen to.
