  1. The World Series of Poker $50,000 Poker Players Championship is one of the most prestigious tournaments in the entire world. It’s full of elite players. Those that are considered to the best of the best will tell you that it’s the most meaningful poker tournament to them, while others spend entire careers just trying to build up enough skill, experience, respect, and bankroll to simply compete in it. When it comes to the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, who are the best? That’s what we're going to take a look at here. The event’s first year was in 2006 and it drew 143 entries. David 'Chip' Reese, of whom many will tell you was the greatest all-around poker player ever, won the inaugural tournament by beating Andy Bloch in heads-up play. He earned $1.784 million for the win and is still one of the event’s top earners. In 2008, following the death of Reese in December 2007, the tournament’s trophy was named the 'Chip Reese Memorial Trophy.' With the completion of the 2019 edition of the event, the WSOP $50,000 Poker Players Championship has been played 14 times. From those 14 events, a total of 1,556 entries have been generated and 140 individual players have cashed. The total prize money that’s been awarded from the WSOP $50,000 Poker Players Championship stands at $74.61 million. Twenty-one different players have cashed for $1 million or more in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, and it’s none other than three-time winner Michael 'The Grinder' Mizrachi sitting atop the event’s all-time money list with $4.63 million in winnings. Mizrachi has cashed four times in the event, with each being a run to the final table. His success has been so great in this tournament that he’s nearly $1.5 million ahead of Brian Rast’s second-most winnings of $3.16 million.

  2. On Friday night in Las Vegas, Phil Hui won arguably the most prestigious poker tournament in the world, the World Series of Poker $50,000 Poker Players Championship, earning $1.099 million in prize money, the coveted gold bracelet, and the respect of the game’s elite. "This is my dream," Hui said in the moments after victory. "I’d rather win this than the Main Event. Obviously the money for the Main Event would be amazing, but this is incredible. You have to be well-versed in every single game. It’s a dream come true. This is the one tournament I wanted to win, and play. It’s only the second time I’ve played it. Just to be lucky enough to play it, it’s incredible." With the victory, Hui joins the esteemed company of David 'Chip' Reese, Michael ‘The Grinder’ Mirzachi, Brian Rast, and John Hennigan, among others, as a champion of the event. "My name doesn’t belong there yet," a humble Hui said when asked about being in such exclusive company. "I’m happy it’s there, but I need to do a lot more to be in a group with those guys." This year, the WSOP $50,000 Poker Players Championship drew 74 of the top players in the game, and Hui had to battle with all of them over a grueling five days of play. In the end, it came down to Hui and Josh Arieh for the title. Entering heads-up play, Arieh had the lead with 16.2 million in chips to Hui’s 6 million. Although he was down nearly 3-1, Hui stood tough and immediately began working to close the gap. The heads-up match between Hui and Arieh saw the chip lead change several times, as the two went back and forth over the course of several hours. One player would gain the lead and start to pull away, but then the other would fight back and do the same. Over and over. Eventually, though, Hui stretched out to a lead that Arieh couldn’t come back from thanks to some big pots in the stud games. The final hand was in 2-7 triple draw, with Hui made a [poker card="9x"][poker card="5x"][poker card="4x"][poker card="3x"][poker card="2x"]. Arieh had a [poker card="6x"][poker card="5x"][poker card="2x"] and drew a [poker card="3x"] and an [poker card="Ax"] to make an inferior hand. With that, Arieh was eliminated in second place for $679,246. The triumph came in Hui’s ninth cash of the 2019 WSOP, and it was the third final table he had made this summer. Entering the event, Hui’s results had him in the top 25 of the WSOP Player of the Year race with 1,541.83 points. He can now add another 1,265.67 to that for 2,807.5 total. That puts him right there behind current leader Dan Zack and throws another top contender right into the thick of this hotly contested race. “I want to win Player of the Year,” Hui said. “That was my main goal going into this year. I was going to play everything I could and try to make deep runs, so Player of the Year is first on the list.” Final Table Results 1st: Phil Hui - $1,099,311 2nd: Josh Arieh - $679,246 3rd: John Esposito - $466,407 4th: Bryce Yockey - $325,989 5th: Shaun Deeb - $232,058 6th: Dan Cates - $168,305 From the field of 74, only the top 12 would make the money. Late on Day 3, Arieh finished off Chris Klodnicki in 13th place to send him home on the bubble. That ended play for the day with Phil Ivey atop the final 12 competitors. Day 4 couldn’t have gone worse for Ivey. He lost almost every hand he played, included one when he folded a winning low in a seven-card stud hi-lo hand that would’ve won him half the pot. Ivey ultimately finished in eighth place for $124,410 in what was his fourth career cash in the WSOP $50,000 Poker Players Championship. Those four cashes have earned Ivey $1.013 million from this event. The four players to hit the rail before Ivey were, in order, Andrew Brown, Talal Shakerchi, Chris Vitch, and Dario Sammartino. For Vitch, it was his second in-the-money finish in the event in as many years. Last summer, Vitch took 11th. Sammartino was recently featured on PocketFives as part of the 'No Gold Club: Best Players Without a World Series of Poker Bracelet.' He came close once again with his run in this event but ultimately fell short with a ninth-place finish. The final elimination on Day 4 was David Oppenheim, a finalist for the Poker Hall of Fame this year. He was eliminated in seventh place by both Bryce Yockey and John Esposito. On the fifth and final day, Dan Cates hit the rail first in sixth place, then it was defending WSOP Player of the Year Shaun Deeb falling in fifth. It was Arieh who busted Cates and Esposito who knocked out Deeb. Yockey, who was making his first-ever cash in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, busted in fourth place to Arieh in a hand of 2-7 triple draw that will go down as one of the wildest hands the WSOP has ever seen. Arieh had raised on the button, Yockey three-bet from the small blind, and Arieh made the call. Yockey stood pat, but Arieh drew two. Yockey then bet, and Arieh called. Yockey was pat again, and Arieh drew one on the second draw. Yockey bet, and Arieh called. Yockey stood pat and Arieh drew one card again. Yockey was dealt number two - [poker card="7x"][poker card="6x"][poker card="4x"][poker card="3x"][poker card="2x"] - and fired the last of his chips into the middle. Arieh peeled his last card to reveal a seven to make a number one - [poker card="7x"][poker card="5x"][poker card="4x"][poker card="3x"][poker card="2x"] - and called to win the pot. Esposito went out next in third, also making his maiden voyage into the money of the tournament. Once again it was Arieh who ended the run, this time in a hand of pot-limit Omaha. Arieh flopped top and bottom pair on the [poker card="Kc"][poker card="8d"][poker card="7h"] flop against Esposito's [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Ad"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="4d"]. Arieh had the [poker card="Kh"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6d"][poker card="4c"] and held with the [poker card="Jc"] turn and [poker card="6s"] river.
