Here we go again, time for another recap of the ongoing 50th World Series of Poker now more than halfway through.

John HenniganEvent #41: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship John Hennigan, who many consider one of the best ever 7-Card Stud players, proved worthy of his reputation by taking down this event one more time. He won his 6th WSOP bracelet along with the first prize of $245,451 after beating  Daniel Negreanu heads up.


Aristeidis MoschonasEvent #42 $600 Mixed No-Limit Hold’em / Pot-Limit Omaha Deepstack 8-Handed After coming back from having slightly less than one big blind left, Aristeidis Moschonas  held strong and took home his first gold bracelet and a sweet $194,759.



Loren KlineEvent #43: $2,500 Mixed Big Bet Loren Klein came to play…and after running through 217 players, he mastered another win and his 4th consecutive WSOP bracelet and collected $127,808.



Asi MosheEvent #44: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty After outlasting a field of 1807, Asi Moshe walked away with his third gold bracelet and a rather large $253,933 to celebrate with.



Stephen ChidwickEvent #45: $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller With more than 50 previous WSOP cashes, 13 final tables, and approximately $25 million in cold hard cash, but no bracelets … Stephen Chidwick finally grabbed his first WSOP gold bracelet and picked up an additional $1,618,417 to fatten his bank account.



Jiyoung KimEvent #47: $1,000/$10,000 Ladies No-Limit Hold’em Championship South Korea’s Jiyoung Kim jumped with joy when she finally defeated Nancy Matson heads-up to take home her very first gold bracelet and a very nice $167,308.


And so it goes, after almost a month of hard hitting and ball busting poker playing, we’re now at more than $16 million dollars paid out to first prize winners.

Stay tuned for our next report from the floor at the Rio All-Suite
Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. In the meantime, come visit us at the Texas Poker Store.
