The brand new event began on Saturday with 6,343 entrants and concluded yesterday after four days of play. Benny Chen brought the largest stack to the final table, which kicked off yesterday, but lost the chip lead almost straight away. He was second in chips when four players remained.

Four-handed play lasted 95 hands with each player taking turns at holding the lead. However, at the end of the night, it was Chen who was the last man standing and received the first prize of $1,198,780 and the coveted gold bracelet!

Yeeeey Benny Chen won $1,198,780 is that bad? risk $1500 and win almost 1.2 million $ i don't think so, i repeat: i wait the day when a mobsters will win a main event on WSOP EPT or why not at PCA Big Smile i think i'll be that (or no) who know...

That would bite for a bit and leave one frustrated losing the chip lead almost immediately at the start of the final table. It had to be a great feeling coming back and winning it. Congrats to him on a great comeback and win.

Man that would be nice to even PLAY in a tournament like that....let alone walk with a million bucks....!!! Smile Even just getting into the money would be a thrill for me,...although, that would get a little boring after a while. But winning back your money and expenses for travel and lodging would be fine.

They would be great holidays all the time going to exotic places to play poker and take in the sights...! Thumbs Up
