Poker Central Debuts New 2020 Hindsight Show
There is no shortage of ideas for new content over at Poker Central these days.
Less than one month ago, Poker Central introduced two new shows to stream on PokerGO. The first was Run It Back with Remko, featuring Remko Rinkema and special guests to provide new commentary for poker’s most memorable episodes of shows like Poker After Dark and High Stakes Poker. The second show was The Championship Run, wherein Jeff Platt examines memorable hands that led to poker victories.
This week, Poker Central introduced and debuted another new show, this one called 2020 Hindsight.
The latest original series from Poker Central is called 2020 Hindsight and features poker pro Matt Berkey. The longtime poker pro, and founder and lead instructor of Solve For Why Academy plans to take exciting WSOP Main Event episodes and break them down.

Specifically, Berkey will talk viewers through each player’s individual decision-making process from his own theoretical point of view. Not only will this provide perspective regarding classic World Series of Poker hands and plays, it will also serve as a teaching tool to show viewers how to improve their own play going forward with new high-level concepts.
Berkey noted, “This is a great forum for us to introduce advanced concepts to the masses. Understanding where mistakes were made on the biggest stage can be useful to players across all skill levels.”
The show premiered on Tuesday, April 21 on PokerGO, which is Poker Central’s direct-to-consumer OTT subscription service. It will debut new 40-minute episodes weekly for a total of six programs.
First Episode in the Books
The first episode of 2020 Hindsight featured the 2010 WSOP Main Event final table. The participants at that table – ones included in Berkey’s commentary – are Michael Mizrachi, Jonathan Duhamel, Joseph Cheong, John Racener, Jason Senti, Filippo Candio, and John Dolan.

The timing of the latest creation from Poker Central is interesting. The show was likely set up to highlight WSOP final tables in anticipation of this summer’s action. However, considering the WSOP was just officially postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, this show may garner even more attention, as poker players won’t be super busy with other things this summer.
