Tournament Notes:

The winner of the $1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em championship was Ryan Young, a 23-year old aspiring pro poker player from Torrance, CA. Prior to winning the $615,955 top prize in this event, Young had worked various odds jobs, including waiting tables in a restaurant.

Young has been playing poker for about four years. He mostly plays on his home computer.

Young arrived at the final table with a significant chip lead. It took him about six hours to win his first WSOP gold bracelet, which was presented afterward by WSOP Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack.

Among those Young vanquished at the final table were tournament veteran John Esposito, a former WSOP gold bracelet winner and high stakes poker player and sports bettor from Las Vegas.

The 10th-place finisher was Ken Adams, from Washington, DC. Adams is a highly-successful attorney who was once counsel to White House insider Chuck Colson (of Watergate infamy). Adams successfully litigated the largest legal settlement in US history during the Exxon-Valdez oil spill case in Alaska.

Poker celebrity and philanthropist Phil Gordon finished in 28th place. Gordon is the co-founder of the charity “Put a Bad Beat on Cancer,” which seeks to raise money for cancer research and awareness. Gordon is urging all of his fellow poker players to contribute one-percent of their winnings at this WSOP to the fund. Put a Bad Beat on Cancer has been active at the WSOP since 2003.

With his 228th-place finish (good for a cash), Chris “Jesus” Ferguson moved into undisputed fifth place on the all-time list for lifetime cashes. He now has 48 in-the-money finishes, pulling slightly ahead of Brent Carter. He is two cashes behind Berry Johnson, currently in fourth place with 50.

Any who doubts the World Series of Poker is the premier poker event on the planet is advised to take a look at these figures. All five $1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em events held at this year’s World Series of Poker have attracted 2,300+ entries. The breakdown numbers are as follows: 

Event #3              2,998 
Event #15            2,628 
Event #27            2,315 
Event #35            2,541
Event #38            2,778 

The combined total number of entrants in just these five events is 13,263, which is greater than the total attendance of all 36 events played at the 2003 WSOP (the year Chris Moneymaker won).
