Event #73: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em MAIN EVENT - World Championship

A Long Summer; The WSOP So Far


While the World Series of Poker Main Event is just about to get underway, a plethora of events are already in the books.

The 2019 World Series of Poker kicked off May 29 with the $500 Employees Event and the poker circus won't leave town before July 16 with the crowning of a winner in Event #89: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em. There are actually 90, and not 89, events this year. Event #90, a $50,000 High Roller, was added to the schedule when the WSOP was already underway and will be played July 8 through 10.

So far, 72 events have started with the majority already in the books. Robert Campbell is the only two-time winner so far this year. He won $144,027 in the $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw defeating a field of 467 players, and yesterday added $385,763 and another gold bracelet triumphing over 150 others in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship.

Femi Fashakin had to overcome the biggest field to win his bracelet so far this summer. He beat a field of 28,371 players to take home $1,147,449 in the BIG 50, a $500 no-limit hold'em event; the biggest live tournament in the history of the game. Phillip Hui took home a comparably sized $1,099,311, but he "only" had to defeat 73 others to take home the gold. He, however, had to wager $50,000 and take on some of the best players in the world as his bracelet cam in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship.

67 bracelets have been rewarded so far. Seven of them became instant millionaires. Nicholas Haynes ($62,248 for winning the $500 Employees event), Yuval Bronshtein ($96,278 for winning the $1,500 2-7), and Eli Elezra ($93,766 for winning the $1,500 Stud) are the only ones taking home a five-figure score for their win, all the other events boasted six-figure first-place prizes.

Millions in prize money have been rewarded, hundreds of thousands of hands have been dealt. Take a look at all the results up until now. You can click on the year for PokerNews Live Reporting of the event. Clicking the winner's name leads you to the PokerNews (final table) recap of the event.
