The 2023 World Series of Poker recently came to a close.
The two month series of 95 separate events was a smashing success for the game of poker with a record-setting field of 10,043 total players entering the Main Event. That tournament was won by Daniel Weinman of Georgia who took home $12.1 million for first, the biggest payout in WSOP Main Event history.
Some players, like Weinman and WSOP Player of the Year Ian Matakis made history, others faced the ire of the poker gods and were left fuming at the table. We’re here to see some of the latter.
PokerGo put together this compilation of players with pocket aces at the WSOP getting busted, arguably one of the most frustrating types of hand to endure in Hold’em Poker.
If you’ve still got poker on the mind after watching that, check this out. A rookie/first time WSOP dealer shared poker lessons on what they learned from watching the best players in the world battle it out on the felt.
That person is normally a cab driver in Las Vegas. Their profession means they have had plenty of exposure to poker and poker players in Vegas over the years. However, they learned first-hand from the best in the game by watching players like Dan Smith’s relentless aggression pay off.
It’s definitely worth a read if you’re looking to improve your game.
