The penultimate tournament of the World Series of Poker event # 77: $ 50,000 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller has collected 128 players. The prize fund of the tournament was $ 6,144,000. The victory in this tournament was by the renowned professional Ben Yu. The 32-year-old Las Vegas poker pro won his third World Series of Poker bracelet. In heads-up he defeated Sean Winter and got $ 1,650,773.
“I do feel like I’m at both an experience and knowledge disadvantage to them,” said Yu about playing with some more experienced high roller regulars. “Every tournament I enter is still a learning opportunity for me and that’s how I view it … Like I was limping on the button and Nick was jamming 40 blinds, which I hadn’t even thought of as a possible play before. I am definitely paying attention to that and going to be thinking about how to incorporate that into my game in the future.”
