2018 WSOP: Event #3: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout won by Joe Cada for $226,218

Event #3 of the 2018 WSOP was bagged by Joseph "Joe" Cada, who outlasted a total of 363 entries, winning the prize money worth $226,218 plus a gold bracelet, thereby bringing his total WSOP bracelet count to 3.

After he won the title in 2009, Cada was considered as the youngest WSOP Main Event champ in the history of the annual poker festival. At that time, he had to battle it out with another WSOP Main Event winner at the final table, 2015 champion Joe McKeehen. Even though he had the chip lead for most of the time at the final table, McKeehen had to settle himself for third place after his pocket sixes got beaten by Cada's pocket kings, with both of them hitting sets on the board.

To win WSOP bracelet and title no. 3, Cada had to knock out Sam Phillips. Once again, it was pocket sixes that made a huge impact in the match's outcome, but this time the sixes were the winning cards and Cada had them, crushing the ace-rag of Phillips thereby decimating his nice stack.

After winning the event, Cada said, "It's tough to win any no-limit event. You have to get really lucky and I ran really well. There were points in the tournament where I could've easily been on the sidelines."

This was the fourth biggest live tournament score for the 30-year-old poker player from Michigan. His two biggest wins came from the Main Event for more than $8.5 million and his title run in the 2014 $10,000 WSOP six-max NLHE event for $670,041.

Now, Cada has a total of lifetime live earnings of over $10.7 million!

It's nice to see Joe Cada win another bracelet and take his tally to 3. Whenever people say to me that poker is a game of luck, i tell them to look how many repeat winners' of these events there are and shows that skill is the deciding factor

yeah, interesting point here raised by doubletop- very often it is stated that poker is a game of luck, but repeat winners do show that there is indeed an element of skill involved, and maybe even more so an element of perseverance, you have to play lots of tournaments to show results in at least some of them

Another player who jumped over 10 millions dollars in live tournaments. How good it is to be in Las Vegas and always play live poker because you have a chance to earn money faster there than in online platforms. In Las Vegas you can earn good amounts and in online rooms you earn beer money... In addition with live poker you have the chance to learn some tactics. Smile

Congratulations, Joe Cada!
I was living in Las Vegas when he won the 2009 WSOP main event. I used to dabble in fixed limit Hold'em at Sahara Casino (presently called SLS Las Vegas) and a small tournament at Golden Nugget.

Joe Cada got lucky a couple of times (maybe more) at the final table of the 2009 WSOP ME. I still remember when his pocket Deuces cracked Antoine Saout's pocket Queens with a 7-2-9 flop. That was a crucial hand in the tournament.
I look forward to watching the $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em tournament final table replay on YouTube.
