The 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event final table (seen virtually live on ESPN and ESPN 2) was an absolute clinic. Viewers from around the globe were able to tune in (or in many cases, tune-in and tune-out at their leisure) and watch experts practice their craft.
The 2014 WSOP Main Event final table was poker at its highest level.
One of the key elements of the final table had a lot to do with the tournament structure (so hat tip to the WSOP) as it was played with fairly deep stacks, allowing for “poker” to be played, and not simply a push/fold contest.
Truth be told, the final table had a bit of everything: Emotional ups and downs, bluffs, and of course a sick beat here and there. But the one constant throughout was the near flawless poker that was played.
