2012 WSOP Main Event Final Table player Russell Thomas has hired poker pro Jason Somerville to coach him before the tournament concludes at the end of this month. In an interesting twist, Somerville is making a series of films highlighting the experience.
Episode one of ‘The Final Table’ is available now on YouTube and can be watched below:
Thomas sits in the middle of the pack when play resumes at the end of this month. The 24 year old will start the final table with 12.5% of the chips in play, good for 4th place in the chip counts.
Somerville commented on Twitter about the experience of coaching Thomas and making this film, “I’ve spent more time on this project than anything else I’ve ever done and I’m really proud of it.”
We’ll find out soon if the coaching help provided to Russell Thomas by Somerville has paid off. The WSOP Main Event Final Table resumes from Rio in Las Vegas on October 28th.
