Posted on by RTR Dave

And the 2014 November Nine is no exception, especially when you consider that several different nationalities are looking to win the first ME title for their country. But if there’s one story that overshadows them all, it is definitely Mark Newhouse. Last summer Newhouse ran through a field of 6,352 players to reach the 2013 Main Event final table with 7,350,000 chips, ranking him eighth to start. Given his chip disadvantage, he wasn’t exactly a favorite to win the tournament. However, Newhouse …

Posted on by RTR Dave

Event #58 – Jared Jaffe “In the Zone,” wins First Bracelet It’s never easy to predict victory in a poker tournament, especially one with 1,475 runners.

2014 WSOP Quick Roundup: Events #46, #47 and #48

Posted on by RTR Dave

Event #46 – John ‘World’ Hennigan wins $50k Players Championship and $1.5m Earlier in his poker career, WSOP success came quick for John Hennigan as he won gold bracelets in a 2002 $2k HORSE event ($117,320) and a 2004 $5k Limit Hold’em tournament ($325,360). Since then, Hennigan’s career has had plenty of near misses in his pursuit of bracelet number three, including a second-place finish earlier this summer ($319,993) and a third-place effort in last year’s $50k Poker Players Championship. The latter is quite noteworthy here because Hennigan finally got over the hump by winning the 2014 WSOP $50k Poker …
