Joe Cada may have finished only at 5th place in the Main Event of this year's WSOP (for $2,150,000), but that's probably okay with him because after a few days, he has gotten his fourth career bracelet when he took down Event #75: The Closer - $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em for $612,886!

It is indeed the perfect ending for Cada's summer. Cada, the Main Event champion in the 2009 WSOP, outlasted a field of 3,120 entries to claim the top prize, "I feel amazing. What a way to cap it off! I've been running good and deep in every tournament, and the tournaments I busted, I feel good about how I played. I haven't played many tournaments this summer, and I'm kind of upset that I didn't play more, but it feels good to close it out."

When asked if he would join the WSOP Europe this autumn, he said it's unlikely because he's still nowhere close to approaching Shaun Deeb in the POY (Player of the Year) race, "It just goes to show how good some summers end up and how good some of these players are."

Deeb also participated in the final day of this event but unfortunately busted out earlier in the game.

Event #75 was scheduled for 4 days (3 starting flights and all 331 survivors combined for Day 2 action). Cada started the final day with a healthy stack of 31 big blinds and he rose steadily. Even if the action was intense throughout the day, Cada rarely became at risk and never went all-in.

Here's Joe Cada's WSOP stats:

Wow so hard to me to understand how people can play so good to get results like this, final table then 4 days later again final tabke and people in tournament is about 9000 in one tournament and 3000 in other, so it is super stable result. I play many tournament but finish in final table maybe 1 time in 1000 try and not do many players

Are professional players and skills matter a lot. To understand how they do that you will have to learn strategy but something more not a little. Usually professional players do not play like amateurs or fish gamblers. Anyway, it's very hard to achieve these performances but it happens. Congratulations for this player because is a good one with texas holdem.

Yeah, He achieve very good performance this year. After few year before didn't hear his good achievement . Of course professional play different, especially compare with online player, lol. A lot just play gambling, maybe in frustrating moment.

Joe Cada has really finished the world series on a high and it must be a wonderful feeling to be able to play like this. 5th place in the main event was fantastic and to win his fourth bracelet must have been some consolation to not winning the big one

May have finished only at fifth place winning 2 miillions Smile
I would take that finish every day. Not every day.
Just once in a lifetime it would have been good also.
Good wins.

Congratulations to Joe Cada for the nice boat that was taken despite finishing in fifth place ... One wonders if one day he will have the opportunity and a little the ability of these players to finish in a good place in some little wheel Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

well this was 2nd best year in the wsop for joe cada, surely it is hard to beat the year when you happen to win the wsop main event, but in reality this year was way more matured performance overall from cada with over 3 millions collcted from 7 events.
