The biggest news comes from the conclusion of the largest tournament in poker history. The Big 50 was a $500 buy-in with 28,371 entries and it was Femi Fashakin who took home his first WSOP bracelet and, most importantly, $1,147,499!
Both the $1500 HORSE event and the $1500 No Limit Hold ‘em 6 handed tournament come into the day heads up.
The $10K No Limit Heads Up Tournament is down to four players: Keith Lehr (who won this event in 2015), Ben Yu (who won his first bracelet in 2015), Cord Garcia (who most famously won the COLOSSUS Event in 2015), and Sean Swingruber (who is searching for his first bracelet).
PHIL IVEY SIGHTING!
That's right! Phil Ivey late registered the $10K Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or better championship. While he was not one of the 23 players to move on to day 2, it was exciting AND surprising to see Ivey in the Rio hallways. Of course, we will keep you posted on all the Ivey Spottings this summer.
The Millionaire Maker Day 1b starts today expecting to get 5,000+ entries.
