WSOP Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack is exited about the tournament so far, “It’s as though we’ve picked up where we left off at the final table of the 2007 main event in Las Vegas. That was the most international of tables and affirmed the global appeal of poker. Results here in London further suggest that the rest of the world has caught up to American poker professionals. This bodes well for the continued international growth of the game.”
