The most prestigious poker tournament, World Series of Poker Main Event, came to an end!  This year champion is John Cynn, 33-years old from Indianapolis.

WSOP winner John Cynn

Main Event Champion John Cynn

After 10 days of fight in the last two weeks, he managed to win the bracelet.  Defeating a field of 7.874 players turned his $10.000 into a fantastic $8.8 million dollars! Just to remind, this is not his first significant score on WSOP Main Event. In 2016, John Cynn was out 11th, just before the final table, and collected a reward of $650.000.

After winning the title of this year World Series of Poker Main Event, he said that he realizes how important this money is but he won’t let it change him:

“The money is very significant, but I do like to think that I don’t need the money to be happy,”  said Cynn. “But at the same time, practically, it’s going to make things a lot easier — things  I want to do in life,  even to my parents, this is money that they never could’ve imagined. It’s  definitely going to be life-changing.”

HEADS UP

Heads up 10 hours fight between John Cynn and Tony Miles

For winning the bracelet John Cynn had to beat a very tough opponent, Tony Miles.  Two of them were playing heads up for over 10 hours, which is a new record of hands played in WSOP heads-up (199), and hands played on the final table of WSOP (442)

Heads up began with both players having the similar stack (119bb), Miles had a bit more chips. On the final hand John Cynn opened with KClub SuitJClub Suit, Miles 3bet him with QClub Suit8Heart Suit. The flop came: KHeart SuitKDiamond Suit5Heart Suit. Miles made a continuation bet and Cynn just called. The turn brought  8Diamond Suit and Miles pushed all-in. After thinking for a while Joh Cynn made a call which got him a first place cash prize and most prestigious bracelet in the poker world. The runner-up Tony Miles won $5 million!

Here you can see the whole final table with finishing positions  and cash prizes:

 

 

Phil Hellmuth won his 15th gold bracelet in 2018 WSOP! This time he is the winner of $5.000 Turbo No-Limit Holdem Event!

Can anything stop this man from winning titles on the WSOP? Phil Hellmuth, the legend himself!

Phill was already the all-time leader in WSOP bracelets having 14 of them. Now, after defeating a field of total 452 entries he managed to win his 15th WSOP title and a 1st place prize of $485.082! After winning Phil announced: “It means everything. I want to be remembered in two ways: 1.) For having won 24 bracelets, and 2.) For starting the positivity movement.”

To remind, Hellmuth recently released a book “#POSITIVITY” for which he got an inspiration after realizing how huge influence he has on fans.  “The spotlight that I have becomes a responsibility. Once I realized that I could inspire people, I took that seriously”, said Hellmuth.  

As he admits, Phill didn’t have a good period for some time: “It’s humbling. I haven’t had a very good summer, but I’ve kept myself positive. Every night I come back to the room, saying, ‘Life is good, relax. Life is good, relax.’ Before this tournament, I called my wife and said, ‘Honey, I’m not sure I want to play this event. She said, ‘Get in there in play.’” And he did, and he did win a 15th bracelet and $450.000!

His place on the final table of $5000 Turbo No-Limit Holdem Event also found Steven Wolansky, a two-time bracelet winner. He even managed to knock out 3 players from the final table, and reach heads up with 3 to 1 lead against Hellmuth, but that wasn’t enough… Maybe the major hand was when both players moved all-in preflop, Hellmuth with  KDiamond Suit10Diamond Suit and Wolansky with  KHeart SuitJHeart Suit. Ten on the river brought Hellmuth a huge pot and a chip lead. Just a few hands after that Steven Wolansky pushed all-in from the button with  ADiamond Suit9Club Suit and Hellmuth called with 3Spade Suit3Heart Suit. Flop brought a 9Spade Suit for Wolansky bout also a 3Club Suit for Hellmuth.  After the blank turn and river, Phill scored another win while Wolansky won $299.907 as the runner-up finisher.

Some people admire Phil and some, from the other side, have a negative opinion about him. However, like him or not, he is definitely a legend and he is definitely still around!
