Lots of stuff happening the past seven days, and I’m not going to try to explain or recap the week apart from saying that I played just awful during the Final Table $20K last Friday and due to other circumstances, I’m not going to make the High Roller at Wildhorse tomorrow, so everyone can have at the money I would have won.
Main Event Ages
I updated my chart of WSOP Main Event November 9 player ages to show the final placement of this year’s contestants.
