Many congratulations to Ryan Bambrick on winning this event and the first prize of $217,123. The United States seem to be winning most of the events so far and it would be nice to see a few more winners from the U.K.
the solution will focus on playing poker was probably the most correct decision in the career of this player .... the outcome of his decision is simply wonderful and confirms that he made the right choice .... an interesting story ... and instructive ..... do not be afraid what is it to change in life

I think for 1500 buyin to win 217123 is very big money, and of course it isnhars to play tournament who has 799 players. Not so big like pokerstars frerolls with 100 dollars prize money, but I think a lot better players quality

A good pot for this tournament. Omaha games draw the most players probably after the holdem. And i agree with pochui as i have said in another post also, the big names are missing from the final tables. New generation of poker players hitting up
