Minutes to go before the final tournament starts. ESPN is here filming for 3 days, making 2011 Independence day extra exciting. The crew traveled to Belize to film Bob Bounahra at his Princess poker room in Belize City. The footage will be used in the upcoming coverage of the WSOP Main Event Final Table in November. This afternoon Bob showed them some of the highlights our beautiful country, including a golf cart tour of Ambergris Caye, snorkeling at Hol Chan Marine Reserve and sunset at Goff’s Caye. The ESPN boys will visit Altun Ha tomorrow then drive to Placencia.
