Finale of The Big Blind on PokerGO is live on 7 January
 

(PRESS RELEASE) -- We’re excited to announce tonight’s finale of “The Big Blind” on PokerGO featuring Norman Chad, Ben Yu, and Alex Jacob. Starting at 8:00 pm ET tonight, these three gentleman out of a field of 18 total contestants are already guaranteed a $5,000 payout with the runner-up collecting $10,000 and the eventual winner taking home $15,000.

“The Big Blind” pits some of your favorite poker personalities up against each other for a battle of poker, gambling, and Las Vegas trivia hosted by Jeff Platt. Over the course of several weeks, the initial field of 18 players was brought down to four quarterfinals, and after last week’s semifinals, only three players remain.

Having spouted and touted his poker trivia knowledge during the World Series of Poker broadcasts for many years, it will come as no surprise to many that Norman Chad qualified for the finals winning all three of the match-ups he was involved in and he will enter the final as the top seed. Chad’s toughest round was arguably the first one where he beat out Mike Matusow and Sarah Herring in a close one.

The second seed coming into the final is Alex Jacob who draws from years of trivia experience along with an epic run on Jeopardy! Jacob was dominant in his first match-up against Matt Berkey and Ben Yu but barely made it into the semifinal in which he beat Barstool Nate and Justin Young.

The third and final seed in this finale is Ben Yu who used his GTO approach to sneak into the finals without winning any of the match-ups played. Yu made it through with strong second-place scores but that won’t cut it tonight! The finale is available on PokerGO.
