2019 WSOP: Event #58: $50,000 Poker Players Championship won by Phil Hui for $1,099,311, Phil Ivey in 8th place

While in the early stages it was poker legend Phil Ivey leading the pack, on Day 4 the 10-time WSOP bracelet winner suddenly lost his grip on the goal as he took a beat after beat, which made his stack plummet down to zero, thus making way for another hopeful to take the ultimate prize.

On June 29 (Saturday) a former pro golfer from Texas was able to snag his second gold bracelet after winning Event #58 of the 2019 WSOP.

2019 WSOP Event #58: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

Buy-in: $50,000
Date: June 24 to 28, 2019
Entries: 74
Prize pool: $3,552,000

Phillip Hui outlasted a player field of 74 to take home the prize money worth $1,099,311. Also, his name will be engraved on the Chip Reese Trophy.

Born in Texas and now living in Hollywood, Florida, Phillip ‘KungPhui' Hui was grinding $150 tourneys in August last year. Ten months later, his hard work paid off as he snagged the top prize at this year's $50,000 PPC event.

Hui's game plan for this event was to play low-variance lines in big bet games and then to gain chips in the H.O.R.S.E. games. He prepared for the event watching replays and playing low buy-in mixed game tourneys back home in Florida. "I'm still gonna play those, I love to play mixed games."

He said that last year was his first time to lose at the prestigious poker festival and he spent the past year improving to make sure it won't happen again this summer. For his main goal this summer, he says, "I want to win player of the year this year. That was my main goal going into the series this year. I was going to play everything I could and try to make deep runs. So POY is first on my list."

He thanked all the people who helped him improve his game. He said, "This is my dream. I'd rather win this over the main. This is incredible, you have to be well versed in every game. It's a dream come true. Definitely this is the one tournament I want to win and play. This is only the second time I played it. Just to be lucky enough to play it, it's incredible."

Final Table Action
The fifth and final day of play began with 6 players remaining, with Josh Arieh in the lead.

Dan ‘Jungleman' Cates was the shortest stack and as far as short stacks go, he got eliminated a few hands after play resumed. Arieh mercilessly sent him to the rail, adding a million more chips to his stack and increasing his lead even further. Cates finished 6th with a $168,305 payday.

Next that became the short stack after Cates exited was Shaun Deeb, who suffered the same fate as Cates, finishing 5th place for $232,058.

Four-handed play took a while, then Bryce Yockey got eliminated in 4th place for $325,989.

Three-handed play saw Arieh still in the lead, and after some more hands John Esposito busted in 3rd for $466,407.

This is actually only the second time ever that Phil Hui is playing the $50,000 PPC in his poker portfolio. He faced a three-to-one chip deficit against Josh Arieh.

The two battled for a few hours, and then Hui managed to snatch the chip lead with trip jacks in a Stud Hi-Lo pot. The lead position was tossed back and forth between them for a few times, with most of the heads-up play being around five big bets apart.

Hui gained a huge lead after winning a big PLO pot, and then left Arieh in the dust after winning again in Razz.

Below is the final hand of the event:

This is Hui's 39th cash score in the WSOP, the biggest cash in his poker career so far and it's just his 2nd recorded WSOP bracelet. His first bracelet was back in 2014 at Event #59: $3,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better ($286,976). He now has $2,979,262 in total live earnings, according to The Hendon Mob.

first prize is great,but when you see buy in,50 K,then its not so much!ofcourse its great to win over 1 million and to have bracelet,but you must have big bank account to have for this kind of buy in!

Yeah, the ROI on this one is not quite like the others, however players still keep register to these so they will keep them on the calendar regardless.

It’s a pity that Phil Ivie couldn’t confirm his high status as a famous poker player ... but I understand that a good game is not only a guarantee of success .... you also need great luck that will lead you to a win .... Apparently it was a bad day for Fila Ivy .... but the eighth place in this tournament is also a good result.
 CALICUL30/06/2019 09:42:42 GMT
The win for the 1 st place is huge, even if the buy-in was 50,000 dollars. Even for places 2-6 winning is beautiful and with that profit money you can pay for many tournaments of $1050 for example. As a professional player with a $ 30,000 profit in a game like this you can win more in different tournaments or cash games.

Not sure what you mean, Ivey does not have to prove anything to anybody - he is a known commodity longer than two decades now.
 dule-vu01/07/2019 09:00:43 GMT
well you cant expect that phile ivey will win every final table and that he will have sure win when he come on final table!he is only human and especially when you dont get some good cards,you cant do everything on bluff!he must lose sometimes,no matter how good he is!
 CALICUL01/07/2019 09:57:05 GMT
Phil Ivey is a person who knows how to make money from poker. He is young and he will be able to pass over difficult moments with two casinos. Even if he did not win more in this tournament that does not mean he will not have good games anymore in future.
 Nightkid01/07/2019 14:11:38 GMT

I am pretty sure we are not gonna see another Final Table finish from them for the foreseeable future at the Main Event, there's just too many info and videos out there about them to map out their tendencies and make it easy to guess which range they use from what position.
Some of the biggest names have the largest targets on their back in these tournies.
 CALICUL06/07/2019 12:27:09 GMT
I know about Phil Ivey and its problems with Borgata and other casino. He is not a mediocre player and he can return to a beautiful life after paying his debts. He is not a player to lose money from poker if he knows how to play. Anyway he's a living legend.

You are right, both name I mention already out from tourney. I wondering the reason is like your opinion or because not their time anymore? luck factor ? curious, biggest player but never reach final table WSOP main even.
 CALICUL08/07/2019 13:13:38 GMT
Daniel Negreanu is on the second place in the cash of money from poker. He has six bracelets and almos 40 millions of dollars prizes in money. In 2018 he was overtaken by Justin Bonomo which had a very good year. These players have over 80 million dollars in prizes.
 pajalnick08/07/2019 14:56:00 GMT
I heard the winners of the final tournament for the first time .... Perhaps this is a new name that will now be constantly on the prize prizes in major tournaments .... you have to wait a bit .... of course this is probably a famous player but I don't know him ... I did not know more precisely before this message .... many good players are now appearing
