The Big Game Week 2 Preview

Share this
Following a debut week that saw huge pots, sick plays and an instant classic hand featuring Phil Hellmuth, The Big Game rolls into its second week with new pros, a CEO aiming to make winning poker his business and a new Loose Cannon who puts a target on Daniel Negreanu. The Big Game continues on Monday, June 21 on FOX affiliates across the country.

Loose Cannon Will Davis has a personal vendetta. A 29-year old online-grinder who qualified for his seat at The Big Game by playing on, Davis was told by his wife to take out Negreanu at all costs. Turns out, she can’t stand Kid Poker’s table talk and is all-but-demanding her husband come home with $100,000 of Negreanu’s money.

Davis, an Ohio State graduate from Hilliard, OH, is a die-hard Cleveland sports fan. He relied on poker to get his degree and now plays to put his wife through school. Mainly an online player, Davis admits to following superstitions when playing at live tables, one of which leaves his wife less than pleased: he believes his wedding ring is unlucky and refuses to wear it while playing.

His wife will be fine with Davis going sans-ring if he knocks out Negreanu and wins enough money to pay for the couple’s overdue honeymoon.
Joining Davis and Negreanu at this week’s table are:
• CEO and online entrepreneur Jason Calacanis
•    Poker legend Doyle Brunson
•    Cash game specialist and WSOP bracelet winner Abe Mosseri
•    WSOP and WPT title holder David Williams
•    And phenom Andrew Robl joins the table after a stunning turn of events.

Week 2 Highlights:
•    Doyle Brunson gets smacked in the face with the deck.
•    A sick double elimination hand opens the door for Robl to make his mark at The Big Game.
•    Internet Mogul Jason Calacanis doesn't make any friends - but he’ll be welcome back anytime.
•    Doyle and Abe Mosseri tangle time and again – both on the felt and in quite a few verbal sparring matches.
