  1. A fantastic day of action in the World Series of Poker saw three bracelets won by first-time winners as well as the first day of action in the $100,000 NLHE High Roller. Leo Margets was the first female player to win an open bracelet in the 2021 World Series of Poker as she closed out The Closer, winning $376,000 and claiming a maiden bracelet. Margets Makes History in The Closer With just 63 players remaining in the hunt for the bracelet, Margets began the day in the chasing pack as Alex Kulev of Bosnia led the field. That lead would be maintained for much of the final day of the event, but with a little luck and a lot of skill, Margets made good on her attempt to become the first female open event winner late in the 2021 World Series. The final table was reached in record time as just nine players remained, with Kulev still king in waiting. At that point, Margets had managed to get third on the leaderboard, but Kulev’s lead was such that she had just over half of his stack. Canadian player Ben Underwood busted in ninth place for $35,131 when his short stack shove with [poker card="Qh"][poker card="6s"] couldn’t get there against Aleksandr Shevliakov’s [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Jd"] as the board ran out with queens on flop and river but low cards elsewhere. There was quickly another elimination as Chris Moorman, online poker legend and short stack heading into the final, busted with ace-high against Margets. Moorman’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="5h"] started the hand behind against Margets’ [poker card="Ad"][poker card="9c"] and the board of [poker card="Kc"][poker card="4d"][poker card="7s"][poker card="As"][poker card="Tc"] saw Margets’ kicker play to send Moorman out with a cash worth $44,740. In seventh, Shevliakov was the victim as the post-dinner session that would find a winner began with his elimination for $57,525. Shevliakov called off Kulev’s shove and was in horrible shape, holding [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Qh"] against Kulev’s [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Ks"]. The seven-high board sent the Russian home at the Bosnian’s expense as the chip leader took yet more control. In sixth place, Cherish Andrews earned $74,680 when her [poker card="Ad"][poker card="3h"] couldn’t catch Stephen Song’s [poker card="Qs"][poker card="Qh"] as the board, which initially looked great for Andrews on the flop of [poker card="Ac"][poker card="5c"][poker card="3s"], was fine on the [poker card="3c"] turn but took a turn for the worse on the [poker card="Qc"] river. With five players left, it looked like everyone was playing for second behind Kulev as he continued to dominate, busting two more players in a single hand as his [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Qc"] held against Arturo Segura’s [poker card="Qh"][poker card="Th"], condemning him to a fifth-place finish worth $97,865 and Marc Lange, whose [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Kc"] was overtaken on the board of [poker card="Jh"][poker card="8h"][poker card="2c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="Qd"] board. Another queen on the river and another player out, Lange earning $129,460, the first six-figure score of the event, for crashing out in fourth. Three-handed, Kulev’s stack of 38 million dwarfed both Song (6 million) and Margets (4 million), but no limit hold’em being what it is, no-one’s lead is ever safe for more than a couple of all-in hands. Margets had chipped up a little to 7 million by the time Song departed in third for $172,855, but Kulev, whose pocket nines beat Song’s [poker card="Kc"][poker card="8h"] shove, was up to 40 million and looking like it was a matter of time before he booked a first WSOP win. Heads-up began with the stroke of luck Margets needed. Miscounting her stack to 2.5 big blinds rather than 7.5, she shoved with [poker card="9c"][poker card="4d"] and when Kulev called with the dominating [poker card="As"][poker card="9s"], she looked doomed. But the board had other ideas, coming [poker card="Js"][poker card="7s"][poker card="7h"][poker card="4c"][poker card="8c"] to double her up in fortuitous fashion and give her 15 bigs to play with. Suddenly, Margets had all the momentum, and 3:1 down in chips, she doubled again when her shove with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="4c"] held in spectacular style when Kulev’s [poker card="Kh"][poker card="8h"] was shot down by quad fours after the board played out. Grinding to level up the chips, Margets had a slim lead by the time the pair saw a flop of [poker card="9s"][poker card="5h"][poker card="3s"] and all the chips went into the middle. Kulev held [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9d"] for top pair, top kicker, but Margets had the flush draw and bottom pair with [poker card="Qs"][poker card="5s"]. The turn of [poker card="5c"] gave her trips and holding through the [poker card="Th"] river, her miraculous comeback was complete as Spanish pro Margets won her first-ever WSOP bracelet in the most dramatic of circumstances. WSOP 2021 Event #83 $1,500 The Closer Final Table Results: Leo Margets - $376,850 Alex Kulev - $232,920 Stephen Song - $172,855 Marc Lange - $129,460 Arturo Segura - $97,865 Cherish Andrews - $74,680 Aleksandr Shevliakov - $57,525 Chris Moorman - $44,740 Benjamin Underwood - $35,131 Badziakouski Wins Brilliant First Bracelet in High Roller In Event #85, the $50,000-entry High Roller, it was Belarussian poker crusher Mikita Badziakouski who reigned supreme and took the title and his first WSOP bracelet. Badziakouski had a huge task on his hands to do so, with one of the toughest final tables in this or any World Series to negotiate. However, from being one of the shortest stacks when the final table began, the Belarussian modern poker legend added another reminder to others of his poker prowess with an impressive performance. Ryan Leng was the first player to leave the nine-handed final table and it came as no surprise purely due to the 2021 WSOP powerhouse entering play with seven big blinds. Most of them went into the middle before the flop, with a little going in on the flop with [poker card="5h"][poker card="5d"], but Ren Lin had [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Kh"] and the cowboys shot down Leng’s hopes on a board of [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Jh"][poker card="Td"][poker card="Ac"][poker card="Ks"]. Leng cashed for $131,982. In eighth place, it was the turn of Joao Vieira to depart, earning $167,152 for his run to the final table. All-in pre-flop for just a couple of blinds, Vieira had [poker card="Ah"][poker card="4h"], but he was called by both Carlos Villamarin with [poker card="Jc"][poker card="5s"] and Jason Koon with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="9c"]. The board of [poker card="5d"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2c"][poker card="Qc"][poker card="2s"] saw a little more money go in, but it eventually went to showdown and Villamarin’s pocket fives - of course - won the day. Shortly after that hand, Villamarin himself was on the rail. All-in pre-flop with [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Jh"], he was in horrible shape against the [poker card="As"][poker card="Ac"] belonging to Stephen Chidwick and the Brit held with ease across the [poker card="9h"][poker card="8s"][poker card="9d"][poker card="3s"][poker card="9s"] board to leap up the leaderboard and leave Villamarin on the rail with $214,496. With six players left, Chidwick held the lead, but not for long. Badziakouski took over and grabbed the chip lead. It was one he would not relinquish easily, as Ali Imsirovic busted in sixth place for $278,840 when Ren Lin’s [poker card="8s"][poker card="7c"] got there against Imsirovic’s [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Qd"] on a board of [poker card="Jd"][poker card="7s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="2c"][poker card="Tc"], with Lin’s middle pair on the flop surviving two streets of outs including two overs and any diamond. At this stage, Mike Matusow was singing the praises of Daniel Negreanu’s late registration...well, kind of. https://twitter.com/themouthmatusow/status/1462634694315438082 Stephen Chidwick had been left super-short by the chip leader and departed in fifth place for $367,153. Chidwick’s [poker card="5d"][poker card="2h"] couldn’t catch against Koon’s [poker card="Qs"][poker card="5c"] with all the chips in pre-flop and a board of [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="Jh"][poker card="4h"][poker card="6d"] playing out. Koon was the next to bust, crashing out in fourth place for $489,585 when his [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Kc"] couldn’t find any help against Badziakouski’s [poker card="Qh"][poker card="Qs"]. The eight-high board sent the GGPoker ambassador out before the podium places and while the Belarussian Badziakouski led, hopes were high for both Negreanu and Lin to make a comeback. Those hopes were to be ruthlessly dashed by the champion in waiting. Negreanu was eliminated by Badziakouski next as the Belarussian went about taking down his final three opponents in a brutal display of poker dominance. The Canadian shoved with [poker card="Jh"][poker card="5h"] and Badziakouski called with [poker card="As"][poker card="6h"], the board of [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Jd"][poker card="8d"][poker card="3s"][poker card="Ad"] delivering Kid Poker from the competition for another great score of $661,041, but missing out on the bracelet once again. Heads-up could have been a non-event, Lin trailing Badziakouski as he did by almost four-to-one in chips. Despite that opening deficit, however, Lin chipped up to take the lead, and for a while, it looked like Badziakouski might struggle. But the partypoker pro is made of strong stuff and he railed to lead once again before the final hand. Li, short-stacked, shoved for just under seven big blinds with [poker card="Kd"][poker card="7s"] and Badziakouski called it off with [poker card="As"][poker card="5h"]. The board of [poker card="8h"][poker card="9d"][poker card="2h"][poker card="8s"][poker card="9c"] saw the Belarussian emerge from one of the toughest final tables of the Autumn the winner and the proud owner of his first-ever WSOP bracelet, along with the $1.46 million top prize. Li, defeated, had to settle for the runner-up prize of $903,610. WSOP 2021 Event #85 $50,000 NLHE High Roller Final Table Results: Mikita Badziakouski - $1,462,043 Ren Lin - $903,610 Daniel Negreanu - $661,041 Jason Koon - $489,585 Stephen Chidwick - $367,153 Ali Imsirovic - $278,840 Carlos Villamarin - $214,496 Joao Vieira - $167,152 Ryan Leng - $131,982 [caption id="attachment_637303" align="alignright" width="700"] Mikita Badziakouski won his first WSOP bracelet too, claiming a terrific victory in the $50,000 NLHE High Roller[/caption] The final event of the night to conclude produced a winner inside 14 hours of play as Michael McCauley won his maiden bracelet in the $1,000-entry Event #86, the Super Turbo event. In an event where the great and good took to the felt, some stars busted out early, such as Phil Hellmuth, Shau Deeb and Barny Boatman, whose tale of disaster started with such positivity... https://twitter.com/barnyboatman/status/1462472736895242244 ...but ended in a cold as ice defeat. https://twitter.com/barnyboatman/status/1462529376059154433 Others were running hot and chief amongst them was the leader of the WSOP Player of the Year race, Josh Arieh. Having seen the Poker Brat bust earlier, Arieh dug in his spikes and stuck around all the way to 10th place, earning $10,604, but most importantly, more points to go next to his name on the POY leaderboard. Others to cash but miss out on the final table included Ryan Riess (152nd for $1,606), Landon Tice (130th for $1,606), and Michael Lech (124th for $1,757). Down to the final table, Dara O’Kearney was the first player to bust when his queen-jack couldn’t catch Andrew Wilson’s ace-four. After Marc Lomeo lost a coinflip with pocket fives against Luigi Curcio’s ace-king, Curcio himself busted when he and Filippo Ragone bothlost out to McCauley in a double elimination. With just five players left, only the Israel player Yuval Bronshtein had won a WSOP bracelet before, but he crashed out in fourth after Rajvir Dua had departed in fifth. Indian player Neel Joshi had led for a long time in the run-up to the final table but could last no longer and left in third place when his start-stack shove with king-deuce ran into McCauley’s pocket sixes. Wilson was only a little shorter than the chip leader, but he was on the rail when his shove for 15 big blinds with [poker card="7d"][poker card="6d"] saw a call from McCauley with [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Jh"] and the board of [poker card="Qc"][poker card="Ts"][poker card="4c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="8d"] gave the American player his first-ever WSOP bracelet. WSOP 2021 Event #86 $1,000 Super Turbo Final Table Results: Michael McCauley - $161,384 Andrew Wilson - $99,742 Neel Joshi - $72,031 Yuval Bronshtein - $52,679 Rajvir Dua - $39,022 Filippo Ragone - $29,282 Luigi Curcio - $22,263 Marc Lomeo - $17,153 Dara O'Kearney - $13,395 Holz Leads The $100K On Day 1 of the $100,000-entry High Roller, Fedor Holz showed once again why he is still one of the most dangerous high stakes players in the world as he topped the 28 players who survived from 53 entries. Holz’ stack of 3,415,000 was marginally ahead of David Peters’ 3,305,000 as a top-quality field produced some big stacks belonging to superstars with plenty of bracelets between them. Oddly, however, while there are 8 bracelets between the top 10 players, only three players of that number have won one, with Michael Addamo (3) coming into Day 2 sixth in chips with over 1.8 million, behind Holz (2) and Peters (also 3). With big names such as Sam Grafton (2,120,000), Sorel Mizzi (1,380,000), Sam Soverel (1,070,000), Dan Smith (665,000), and Ben Heath (610,000) all in the Top 20, the potential late registration of both Phil Hellmuth and Josh Arieh could yet decide the destiny of the WSOP Player of the Year title. Players such as Darren Elias, Stephen Chidwick, and Jason Koon all busted on Day 1 but will have the chance to rebuy before the first card hits the felt on Day 2. WSOP 2021 Event #87 $100,000 NLHE High Roller Top 10 Chipcounts: Fedor Holz - 3,415,000 David Peters - 3,305,000 Orpen Kisacikoglu - 3,040,000 Sam Grafton - 2,120,000 Bill Klein - 1,885,000 Jonathan Little - 1,625,000 Seth Davies - 1,260,000 Laszlo Bujtas - 1,240,000 John Lilic - 1,190,000 Michael Addamo - 885,000 Finally, we stay with Koon as the GGPoker ambassador and first-time WSOP bracelet winner this series paid tribute to a great player given little credit apart from in the past few days. Sincerity rocks, people. https://twitter.com/JasonKoon/status/1462499757369139201  
  2. Six bracelet events took place on Day 26 of the 2021 World Series of Poker as Chad Norton won his first WSOP bracelet in the $800 Deepstack event and three final tables were reached with some superstars of the game in pole position to win gold. Norton Scores First Bracelet Chad Norton was dominant in his display at the $800-entry Deepstack event with the chip leader going into the final table Kevin Wang overtaken by Norton before the first-timer deservedly claimed a debut bracelet and the top prize of $214,830 to go with it. The final table of nine players began with Wang on 22 million chips, an amount far clear of the 9 million in front of the eventual winner. It was Joshua Herman who busted first in ninth place for $19,533, as he moved all-in for around four big blinds with [poker card="Js"][poker card="9s"] and was called by Norton with [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Th"]. That call was vindicated across the board of [poker card="Kd"][poker card="7c"][poker card="5h"][poker card="5c"][poker card="Ks"] as Norton’s ace-kicker played and he vaulted to 20 million chips after a fast start to the table. Next to go was William Blais for $24,982, as the Canadian moved all-in on a flop showing [poker card="Jh"][poker card="9s"][poker card="3h"]. Blais had a monster hand with [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Kh"], but it was well behind his caller Norton with [poker card="As"][poker card="Ac"], and through the [poker card="3c"] turn and [poker card="9h"] river, Blais was on the rail and Norton became chip leader. Jordyn Miller was eliminated in seventh place as his [poker card="Th"][poker card="Tc"] call for his tournament life after Andres JeckIn’s shove with [poker card="As"][poker card="8h"] met with ill fortune. The flop of [poker card="8d"][poker card="6s"][poker card="2h"] gave JeckeIn top pair but kept Miller ahead, with the [poker card="2d"] turn maintaining that lead. The river of [poker card="8s"] changed everything, however, with Miller busted before the final six. The chip leader heading into the final nine, Wang was gone in sixth place, as he fell to Norton too. Wang shoved from the button with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="3c"] and was called by Norton with [poker card="As"][poker card="Jh"]. The board of [poker card="Ks"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2h"][poker card="Jd"][poker card="Qs"] saw Wang flop a gutshot but miss it as Norton paired up on the turn and busted Wang for a $42,031 score. In fifth place, it was the turn of Ivan Uzunov to depart the party, winning $55,279 as his shove with [poker card="Js"][poker card="Ts"] was called by JeckeIn with [poker card="Qc"][poker card="Jc"]. The board of [poker card="5s"][poker card="2c"][poker card="4h"][poker card="4d"][poker card="As"] saw Uzunov on the rail with the Argentinian staying in contention albeit at the bottom of the counts. Narimaan Ahmadi had laddered to fourth place for $73,371 but could go no further as he shoved from the small blind with [poker card="Kd"][poker card="6c"] and Norton, who called with an audible ‘Sure, why not?” turned over [poker card="As"][poker card="6h"]. The board of [poker card="Qd"][poker card="7h"][poker card="3d"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3h"] saw Ahmadi leave the event, and Norton, who had four times the chips of his remaining two opponents combined, continued to obliterate all who sat between him and the gold bracelet. Both of Norton’s opponents were in ICM problems, and JeckeIn paid for it with his stack in third place for $98,269. The Argentinian shoved with [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Ts"] but was called by the other short stack in Steve Lemma, whose [poker card="7h"][poker card="7d"] held across a comfortable board of [poker card="7s"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="5h"] which saw JeckeIn pick up a flush draw on the flop but fade both turn and river as Lemma filled up to sevens over fives on 5th street. Heads-up was looking like it might not be a procession for Norton purely due to Lemma busting JeckeIn, but with just under a 3:1 chip lead, that proved enough for a quick kill for Norton. Lemma shoved over Norton’s raise from the button and Norton made a quick call. Lemma was behind with [poker card="Qc"][poker card="9s"], Norton holding [poker card="As"][poker card="8d"] and hitting top pair on the flop as the board played out [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Jh"][poker card="3d"][poker card="5c"][poker card="3h"] to give Lemma the runner-up spot for $132,802 and award Norton the bracelet and top prize of $214,830. WSOP 2021 Event #46 $800 Deepstack Final Table Results: Chad Norton - $214,830 Steve Lemma - $132,802 Andres Jeckeln - $98,269 Narimaan Ahmadi - $73,271 Ivan Uzunov - $55,279 Kevin Wang - $42,031 Jordyn Miller - $32,254 William Blais - $24,982 Joshua Herman - $19,533 Jeff Platt, Jonathan Dokler Head Day 4 of Double Stack Day 3 of the $1,000-entry Double Stack event saw Michael Wang end the day with a dominant chip stack as the American piled up over 24 million chips. With Joshua Harrison his nearest challenger on 14.7 million, others in contention include South Korean player Sejin Park (13.3 million), Jonathan Dokler (12.8 million), and PokerGO presenter Jeff Platt, who led after Day 2 and still has a very playable 8 million stack heading into the penultimate day. Of the players who busted on Day 3 as the field dropped from 149 players to just 17, former WSOP Main Event winner Martin Jacobson fell in 145th place for $3,124, Niall Farrell dropped in 88th place for $4,716 and Ralph Massey made it all the way to 23rd place for $15,856. Others to bust on a busy day for eliminations included Daniel Dayan, Andrew Moreno, Brandon Shiels and Antoine Saout. Wang was understandably delighted with his progress. https://twitter.com/miw210/status/1452879499423465474 WSOP 2021 Event #43 $1,000 Double Stack Top 10 Chipcounts: Michael Wang - 24,300,000 Joshua Harrison - 14,725,000 Sejin Park - 13,325,000 Jonathan Dokler - 12,875,000 Timothy Little - 11,475,000 Alexander Farahi - 10,725,000 Alex Kulev - 9,550,000 Anthony Denove - 8,475,000 Jeff Platt - 8,075,000 Kenneth Inouye - 7,475,000 Back-To-Back Final Tables For Tommy Le Tommy Le is the man to catch in Event #45, the $10,000-entry Pot Limit Omaha Championship. With a stack of 7.4 million, Le leads from Artem Maksimov, with both of the top two some way clear of Chris Sandrock (3.2m), Jordan Spurlin (2.8m), and Jeremy Ausmus (2.2m), who will all be hoping for an early double up to put themselves back in contention for the WSOP bracelet. With players such as Mike Matusow, Dylan Linde, and Daniel Zack all busting on the penultimate day of play, Le will be hoping to go one better than his last final table, where he lost out for the bracelet to our own Josh Arieh. Le got off to a blistering start on the day, with just 18 players starting out and an unlucky 13 of that number failing to make the final day. Le doubled up through Arthur Morris and never looked back, as the day’s dominant player busted Mike Matusow with a rivered nut flush against ‘The Mouth’, who had flopped the nut straight. Once the final table of eight was reached, Ashly Butler was the first player to depart, with eighth place worth $71,242. Morris himself was busted in seventh for $93,406, while Eli Elezra failed to make it five bracelets, falling short in sixth place for $124,508 as Le claimed the chip lead heading to the denouement of the PLO Championship. WSOP 2021 Event #45 $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship Final Table Chipcounts: Tommy Le - 7,240,000 Artem Maksimov - 5,080,000 Chris Sandrock - 3,200,000 Jordan Spurlin - 2,885,000 Jeremy Ausmus - 2,235,000 $5K Freezeout Final Table Set Day 2 of the $5,000 Freezeout event saw a returning field of 82 players play down to just five finalists as the penultimate day of action saw plenty of it. At the close of play, Frenchman Alexandre Reard had the biggest stack, with 8,820,000 chips, some way clear of the only remaining bracelet winner in the field, Daniel Strelitz (5,345,000). With Qing Liu (3,375,000), Conrad Simpson (2,390,000), and Ren Lin (1,535,000) completing the final five, there are sure to be fireworks as the five men play for the top prize of $428,694. Day 2 of this event saw plenty of big names exit the competition, with eight hours of play leading to the unofficial final table of nine. With players such as Daniel Lazrus, Scott Seiver, Daniel Negreanu, and Shaun Deeb all making the money but failing to trouble the final table, others weren’t so fortunate, with stars such as Ben Heath, Andrew Kelsall - who bubbled - and Alan Sternberg all falling short of profit. WSOP 2021 Event #47 $5,000 Freezeout Final Table Chipcounts: Alexandre Reard - 8,820,000 Daniel Strelitz - 5,345,000 Qing Liu - 3,375,000 Conrad Simpson - 2,390,000 Ren Lin - 1,535,000 Ari Engel, Sam Grafton Survive Day 1 Shootout Event #48 was the $1,500 Shootout, a unique event on the WSOP calendar and one of our favorites, with each 10-handed starting table producing one winner who then makes the next day of single-table shootouts ahead of a final table full of winners eventually being reached. Day 1 saw a neat total of 800 players reach just 80 as players such as Sam Grafton, Joseph Cheong, and Ari Engel all ended the day too strong for nine opponents, slaying their way to victory. Of the 12 hours that players were at the felt, some tables ended much sooner than others. The first table to leave just one player standing was the one that ended with Victoria Livschitz sat behind all the chips. Players such as Shiraz Lall and Huy Nguyen couldn’t stop her progression, with other tables just as star-studded. Sam Grafton made his way through a table that included Michael Noori, who already has a 2021 WSOP bracelet to his name, while Joseph Cheong added to the Day 2 banter after taking care of Zach Gruneberg heads-up. Ari Engel, who already has two 2021 WSOP bracelets to his name, is 79 players from repeating that trick, with players such as Maria Ho, Ryan Depaulo, Michael Mizrachi and Jeff Gross among those to miss out. Sam Soverel Leads $10K NL 2-7 Event #49 completed the mammoth day at the felt for WSOP fans, with Sam Soverel leading the way after Day 1 of the $10,000 No Limit 2-7 Single Draw event. Soverel’s stack of 454,500 chips puts him ahead of Johannes Becker (373,500) and Julien Martini (338,500) at the top of the leaderboard, but there is quality in every seat, with Shaun Deeb (302,500), Benny Glaser (290,500), and Yuval Bronshtein (225,500) all in the top 10 chip counts. Elsewhere, players such as the vastly experienced Dan Shak (190,500), Chris Vitch (83,000), Scott Seiver (99,500), Nick Schulman (90,000), and Ryan Leng (74,500) will all be very positive that they can claim a profit on Day 2 and push for the gold. Among those who busted on Day 1 were stars such as Phil Hellmuth, Galen Hall, and Michael Noori. WSOP 2021 Event #49 $10,000 NL 2-7 Single Draw Top 10 Chipcounts: Sam Soverel - 454,500 Johannes Becker - 373,500 Julien Martini - 338,500 Shaun Deeb - 302,500 Benny Glaser - 290,500 Benjamin Diebold - 277,500 David McGowan - 269,500 Yuval Bronshtein - 225,500 Farzad Bonyadi - 215,500 Matt Vengrin - 210,500 Chris Moneymaker already decided pre-festival that he wouldn’t be gracing Vegas with his presence, but a recent champion has, ahem, ‘encouraged’ him to rethink that choice.
