The next tournament at the World Series ended, namely Event # 62: $ 888 Crazy Eights No-Limit Hold’em 8-Handed. 8598 players fought for part of the prize fund, which was $ 6,871,521. The winner was Galen Hall, which received $ 888,888 for the first place. The second place was taken by the player from Latvia Eduard Kudryavtsev, who received $ 476,888. The third place was taken by the Belgian Niels Herregodt, who married 5 years ago in Las Vegas.
This is the first gold bracelet for Galen Hall. From the very beginning, Hall was supported by his girlfriend, and on the final day Galen’s parents joined her, who arrived in the morning. In an interview, Hall said that despite the non-standard ICM, he believed that for both opponents the difference in the prize for the second and third place is quite significant. And he hoped, if one of them remains with a short stack, then he can put pressure on another player.
