Andy Black Looks Back on Almost 20 Years of WSOP Main Event Action

Published on 9 July 2016 by Pokerlistings 58

Andy Black is Ireland's leading all-time poker money winner and he's at the World Series of Poker Main Event looking back fondly at his first-ever poker cash in this very tournament almost 20 years ago. Black said it took him 10 years of playing poker in Europe before he made it to the WSOP in 1997. When he got to the biggest tournament in poker he found himself all-in on a bluff in the first level against legendary high-stakes pro Ted Forrest. Black survived that hand and went on to finish 14th. The winner of that event? Another poker legend: Stuey Ungar. Black went on to finish 5th in the Main Event in 2005 and 22nd in 2008. In this video Black looks back on his first trip to the WSOP and how his experience in the Main Event has changed over the years. Black also explains why he believes so many young players have won the WSOP Main Event over the last decade.
