Today on The Final Table, we’re at the Rio in Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker. We recapped the action of the first week, from the size of the crowds to the tournaments to the cash games to the Grudge Match between Johnny Chan and Phil Hellmuth. We also discussed the latest on the Phil Ivey lawsuit against Full Tilt.
In our guest segment, we welcomed Maria Ho back to the show. We recorded this interview Friday morning, just before she went off to play Event #4, the $5,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em tournament — where she finished second! Maria shared a great story about her first WSOP experience, whether it’s become easier for women in the world of poker, whether she and Tiffany Michelle would go back on “The Amazing Race,” and her new deal as poker ambassador for a Winstar casino in Oklahoma.
