Playing at the final table of a major poker tournament isn’t something that happens regularly, even for the biggest names on the World Poker Tour (unless you’re Matt Salsberg this season). So, what is it like when you know you’re heading to a televised WPT final table with a $1.2 million first-place prize on the line? What’s your strategy, and do you even think about the money at all?
This Sunday at 8pm or 11pm local time on FSN, WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic – Part 1 airs and will see six players wade their way through a deep and talented field at the Bellagio to put themselves in exactly that position.
The above clip takes a look at how Antonio Esfandiari, Andrew “LuckyChewy” Lichtenberger, Shawn Buchanan, Ravi Raghavan, Thomas Winters and Jeremy Kottler are approaching their chance to take home that kind of money, or if the money is even their biggest focus.
