More 토토사이트추천Series Updates
As the 2006 World Series of 토토사이트추천rolls along toward the circus that is the Main Event, records are broken and history is made along the way.
1) William Chen (who?) became the first to win two bracelets, in the $3000 limit holdem event, beating out 414 other players, and the $2500 no-limit holdem shorthanded event (740 players). Chen earned $343k and $442k for his efforts. Prior to this Series, Chen had cashed in just two tournaments since 2001. With fields so huge, you have to be a great player to win one bracelet. But two? It seems like every year, somebody does it though (Scott Fishman in 2004, Mark Seif in 2005, Jason Gillikin in 2007 – oh wait that hasn’t happened yet). Hmmmm, maybe I’ll have to play in more than just two events next year.
2) As you may have heard on the radio or on ESPN, the youngest player ever was crowned champion of the $2000 No-Limit Holdem event. At 21 years, one month, and nine days, Jeff Madsen beat out a field of 1579 to capture the bracelet and $661k. Currently a film student, and about to start his senior year, Madsen used some of his college fund to pay for the events. Actually, he only had to dip into his fund for one event since he made a final table, finishing third, winning a nice chunk of change ($97k) at the $2000 Omaha Hi/Lo Event. By earning two final table berths in very different events at such a young age, it’s very possible that this guy will become the next superstar of the game.
3) Phil Hellmuth made yet another final table, this time at the $3000 Omaha Hi/Lo Event. Unfortunately for him, he came up short in his bid for his tenth bracelet, finishing in 6th place. Hellmuth has cashed in four events and made two final tables so far at this Series, earning more than $490k. For most normal people, and even most professionals, these are stats to be extremely proud of. But I know Phil is only concerned about the jewelry and won’t rest until he passes the legends to overtake poker immortality.
4) Professionals Allen Cunningham ($1000 plus rebuys), Chip Reese ($50,000 H.O.R.S.E.), Eric Froelich (who last year set the short-lived record as the youngest player ever to win a bracelet won the $1500 PL Omaha with Rebuys event), Lee Watkinson ($10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha), and David “The Dragon” Pham ($1500 NL Holdem) won bracelets. Amateurs sneak through every now and then, but the pros continue to dominate, even among the huge fields.
