888poker WSOP Main Event Docuseries Episode 3: What It’s Like To Get SICK at the WSOP!
Over the last few Sundays, some great poker content has been created by the folks at 888poker, which follows their ambassador's journey through the 2023 World Series of Poker Main Event.
Episodes one and two were about the pros touching down in Las Vegas and followed their journeys through Day 1 of Poker's World Championship.
Caue Moura, Lucia Navarro, and Aaron Barone were the three pros that made it through to Day 2 of the Main Event after navigating their respective Day 1 flights.
Time to Relax with a Day Off
After Moura, Navarro and Barone bagged for the second stage of the Main Event, the trio found themselves on a day off.
Moura and Navarro kick things off by detailing how their Day 1s went for them.
“I was actually feeling amazing on my day off because I never actually thought I'd make it through to Day 2,” said Moura. “The sensation of bagging chips from the Main Event is just crazy.”
For Navarro, “The day was really good at the beginning. I was completing all the draws.” And despite some tough opponents at her table, Navarro ended the session with a healthy stack of 86,500.
So what does a poker pro do on their day off in one of the wildest cities on the planet? Navarro avoided the bright lights and any poker temptations by taking a trip to the supermarket as well as catching up on some laundry.
“I know I'm supposed to do that [rest], but I'm a grinder. I wanna play. This is what I want to do,” explained a fired-up Barone.
Despite Barone's longing for the poker table, a trip to get some “delicious tacos” with friends ended up in disaster.
After chowing down, Barone left Paris, Las Vegas, for Caesar's Palace but began to feel terrible after he got through the doors with suspected food poisoning. Even with a brief rest stop at the Cosmopolitan, Barone had to chuck in the towel on his evening's tournament aspirations.
But luckily for Barone, the symptoms he experienced were quickly expunged and he managed to play Day 2 feeling relatively healthy.
Be sure to check out all the released episodes and new instalments that go live every Sunday and are must-watch for those who want to see what it's like to navigate through poker's biggest tournament.
