Day 1C and 1D of the 2010 WSOP Main Event air tonight on ESPN at 8pm EST/5pm PST, just moments after our show This Week In Poker broadcasts live online at 4pm PST with guests Prahlad Friedman and poker tells expert Joe Navarro.
A lot of big name pros played on the final Day 1s including Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu, Doyle Brunson, Patrik Antonius, Huck Seed, Tom “Durrrr” Dwan, David Williams (and his girlfriend), Hoyt Corkins, the aformentioned Prahlad Friedman, and Vanessa Ruosso, a woman, who went to Duke.
Expect to see a lot of Hellmuth (and his entrance), along with focus on Johnny Chan, who ends up one of the chipleaders heading into Day 2. We also won’t be surprised if ESPN shows a little love to Lauren Kling, a woman, and FOWCP Jason Calacanis knocking out John Juanda.
Who you won’t see is 2008 WSOP Main Event champ Peter Eastgate who announced his retirement from poker right around then.
