Tags: Antonio Esfandiari, Craig McCorkell, Jeremiah Fitzpatrick, Poker, WSOP
Posted on Friday, June 22, 2012 by "M".
Thursday night delivered some of the best poker action so far in the 2012 WSOP. It was the No-Limit Hold'em Shootout event that brought on some of the loudest crowds at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in this year's WSOP. UK's Craig McCorkell was the last man standing after the battle. The victory resulted in 2012's first British Gold Bracelet and a healthy bag of money for McCorkell - $368,5[...]   Read more » 2012 WSOP Event #36: Craig McCorkell - UK's first WSOP 2012 Winner

Esfandiari just can't seem to get it done at the WSOP - I think he lacks the concentration for a long event.

Thats great a British person won, thats after a Japanese won as well, so theres an international flavour to the winners, always good to see a mix.

What a movie!!! First, the drama, with Esfandiari dominating all the scenes and being prematurely crushed by some WSOP newbye. Then the action, with the new hero, who had the attention of all the public, going crazy til he gets to the final heads up against a more experienced player. In the end, the romantism, with Craig McCorkell, who blocked Fitzpatrick’s capability, took the bull by the horns and won the tourney.

The big drop is gonna be nuts - i mean obviously you cant take the fact its a milion dollar buyin into account too much otherwise it would f**k with your mindset.

But still, just wow. so many good players!

Look at the bracelet tally on the WSOP main page - USA has won 29 bracelets, the next closest is 2 i think by canada, crazy disparity.
