Event #49, No-Limit Hold'em $1,5000, has found its winner. Michael Linn (USA) took home the first prize of $609,493 after knocking out his final opponent Taylor Larkin (USA) in heads up. Michael was quite lucky with the cards on the final table. Of course the fact that his family and Barry Greenstein was there to support him must have helped a lot as well. A big congratulations to Michael Linn and his first ever WSOP bracelet.

Chance Kornuth took home event #50 ($5000 buy-in PLO) just a few moments ago and collected the first prize of $508,090. This is the first WSOP bracelet and the biggest cash ever for the unknown Denver man. Notable top finishers in event #50 included - Jason Mercier (16th), Joshua Tieman (21st) and Anntte Obrestad (36th).

The Main Event, Event #57, is not far away now. It kicks off in only 4 days and will continue until July 17 when there are 9 players left. The final table will played sometime in November.

And people say there is no or rlly low luck % in Poker...
But in tournament (if you count 1) luck factor is really important.
I would be pissed off if i would loose to luckbox ... much more then if i would loose to better hand or smth.
