Double the bu in in this event compared to the one with the omaha hi lo, and yet the prize money for the first place was even less due to the number of players of course, with omaha hi lo having like three times more. Popular game the omaha hi lo

It's nice to see Joe Cada win another bracelet and take his tally to 3. Whenever people say to me that poker is a game of luck, i tell them to look how many repeat winners' of these events there are and shows that skill is the deciding factor

yeah, interesting point here raised by doubletop- very often it is stated that poker is a game of luck, but repeat winners do show that there is indeed an element of skill involved, and maybe even more so an element of perseverance, you have to play lots of tournaments to show results in at least some of them

Another player who jumped over 10 millions dollars in live tournaments. How good it is to be in Las Vegas and always play live poker because you have a chance to earn money faster there than in online platforms. In Las Vegas you can earn good amounts and in online rooms you earn beer money... In addition with live poker you have the chance to learn some tactics.

Congratulations, Joe Cada! I was living in Las Vegas when he won the 2009 WSOP main event. I used to dabble in fixed limit Hold'em at Sahara Casino (presently called SLS Las Vegas) and a small tournament at Golden Nugget.

Joe Cada got lucky a couple of times (maybe more) at the final table of the 2009 WSOP ME. I still remember when his pocket Deuces cracked Antoine Saout's pocket Queens with a 7-2-9 flop. That was a crucial hand in the tournament. I look forward to watching the $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em tournament final table replay on YouTube.
