On the 39th episode of the Poker Central Podcast, it's time to talk poker with 3-time Super Bowl champion Richard Seymour.
On Day 2a/b of the Main Event, 2,219 players returned to the tables and only 1,023 managed to make it through to Day 3. The biggest stacks belong to Mickey Craft (608,100) and Lawrence Bayley (618,000).
Seymour bagged up 102,000, while defending champion Qui Nguyen was knocked out. We also spoke to Nguyen on the show, about his return to the place where his epic run started last year.
Economics PHD student Andrew Barber joins the show to talk about the economics of the Main Event and the lower markups for action being lower than they have been in previous years.
Last but certainly not least, Army vet Tim Burt joins the show to talk about his quest for a fourth straight WSOP Main Event cash, and his history of playing online poker while being on active duty in Iraq.
