I was quite pleased to see John Juanda manage to win this title,I have seen him a few times at these and he was desperate to win one.I think with $17 million to his name this was more about the glory rather than just the money. Looking at Hendon his first official live tourney cash was back in 1997,winning $1320 for coming 6th in a $100 limit game.

John Juanda one of the old school player .. that was a nice finish i like the fact that Elky and Erik Seidel was helping a friend in the final table by giving strategy advice i am pretty sure he had trips several times in the final table he got so lucky with that KJ but i don't think that the top 3 was upset , the deal made them a very nice profit for 3rd and 2nd place

I watched since bigining ept main event, and on 3rd day or maybe 4th I said that juanda and sanchez will finish on final table, even I said that on twitch chat... and indeed they end up in FT I am suprised that juanda made deal there, because he dont need money that badly... he already got millions... Its too bad for player that finished in 4th, specialy when they discuss deal 4 handed, he would have 920k from that deal, instead of 405k that he won...
