Ylon Schwartz, finished 4th in the 2008 WSOP Main Event for $3,7 million, won his first gold bracelet last Saturday when he took down Event #27: H.O.R.S.E. Now, 3 days later, another 2008 WSOP Main Event finalist has the chance of winning his first gold bracelet.
Dennis Phillips finished 3rd in the 2008 WSOP Main Event for a breathtaking $4,503,352, then he finished 45th in the same event the next year. Tomorrow, he and another 3 players, Bob Phelps (3,4m), Hoyt Corkins (1,9m) and Allyn Schulman (1,6), will fight for a first prize of $603,713 + a gold bracelet in Event #29: Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship, a tournament that attracted nothing less than 4,128 players.
Philips has a decent lead with 5,335,000 chips and it probably won't be a surprise to anyone if he ends up as the winner. We will be back with an update tomorrow!
