Three-time WSOP bracelet winner Perry Green, who finished second in the WSOP Main Event in 1981 to Stu Ungar, has just instructed the dealers to get things started.
"Good luck to all of the players today," said Green, who also thanked Jack Binion and his wife of 56 years. He then mentioned how he's often asked "How was it like playing against Stu Ungar?" "It was no tougher than playing against each of these remaining 282 today," he explained. "And with that, it's time to say 'Shuffle up and deal!'"
