With the news that the 2020 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas has been postponed to the very earliest autumn, fans wanting their WSOP Main Event action fix will be happy to learn that a new show featuring WSOP action archive started on Tuesday.
Poker Central and PokerGO are providing poker fans with some recent and classic WSOP final tables, with the added bonus of an insight from one of the GTO era’s famous players, Matt Berkey.
During these periods of loneliness, the news that six of the most thrilling WSOP Main Event final tables will be included in the 2020 Hindsight series will fill fans with cheer. The series’ premiere featured coverage of the 2010 WSOP Main Event final table that ended with Jonathan Duhamel outlasting superstars including heads-up foe John Racener, ‘The Grinder,’ a.k.a. Michael Mizrachi, and the favourite poker hero of everyone Joseph Cheong.
There will be a new episode released each week for the next six weeks and it’s the perfect duration for casual fans and avid poker watchers alike to enjoy with each episode clocking in at about 40 minutes.
Poker Central’s CBO, J.R McCabe, talked about the fact that many PokerGO viewers have a vested interest in poker play. “Our viewers are not only fans of the game of poker, but oftentimes, players themselves,” he said. “This new series will provide teachable moments to sharpen individual gameplay, all while reliving some of the most iconic WSOP hands.”
Matt Berkey’s inclusion as a poker analyst is a bold move. Berkey is as popular as he is currently valued in the industry and blends well with the latest GTO-opinion phenomenon coupled with the entertaining in-studio banter. Some of the review that Berkey offers will be available to PokerGO viewers with a free tutorial download, another nice touch after the brand had given subscribers a free month earlier last month.
Berkey himself can’t wait to get behind the mic and look back at the action from some of the recent past’s WSOP Main Events in retrospect.
“This is a great forum for us to introduce advanced concepts to the masses. Understanding where mistakes were made on the biggest stage can be useful to players across all skill levels.”
