As predicted last November, The Big Blind at PokerGO began in style, managing to please the public that follows it through the subscription transmission service. So much so that the three men who reached the final have already secured their money.
Among the 18 contestants of season 1, Norman Chad entered as a favorite according to the opinion of many experts. Chad is an encyclopedia of poker, which, as it has done in the World Series of Poker broadcasts for years, has advanced overwhelmingly in each group stage and qualifying rounds of the popular poker program and gambling trivias.
Before the final, Jeff Platt, the host of the program had anticipated the following:
“We have the whole final to end the inaugural season of The Big Blind. Ben Yu and Alex Jacob have traveled a difficult path to the championship with relative ease. Somehow, somehow, Norman Chad will join them for last. This episode brings great entertainment and great drama! ”
Another competitor who does not need presentation in the competitions is Alex Jacob, because he comes from conquering Jeopardy. He stood out as a professional poker player with a long career. The third contestant competing for the final is Ben Yu, who enjoys a lot of prestige in the world of poker and is well known for winning three World Series of Poker bracelets and is an writer and commentator.
The jackpot of the contest is $ 15,000, while the contestant who is in second place will take $ 10,000 and $ 5,000 for third place
