Hit and Run: WPT’s Final 18; Negreanu Pees on Twitch
Who is left to go after the final table at the World Poker Tour event in Florida? And Daniel “Kid P” Negreanu relieves himself on Twitch. It’s all in our daily wrap-up of the world of poker, the Hit and Run.
Just 18 players remain at the World Poker Tour Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. Lots of pros, although not really any famous ones. Two-time WSOP bracelet winner Dan Heimiller, former WPT champions Mohsin Charania and Cornel Cimpan as well as David Peters ($5 million in live earnings) are all looking to reach the final table. Eli Levy is the chip leader. Updates here.
A documentary about the title run of Martin Jacobson at last year’s World Series of Poker main event is on the way. Details here, or watch below. It looks pretty bad-ass; we’ll be excited to see the whole thing.
