$5 Million Man!
The World Series of Poker concluded yesterday with a record number of entrants (over 2200) each forking up the $10,000 entry fee. My brother and I tried to win satellites to get in, both in Las Vegas at Binion's Horseshoe and online at Party Poker. Next year, I'll win a seat!!
Visit the Poker Prof for excellent coverage of this past week. Alas, the winner was a guy named Greg "Fossilman" Raymer, and he walked away with a cool $5 Miliion, the largest payout of all time. Last year's winner, Chris Moneymaker got $2.5 Million. Congrats to everyone who played.
Now that means there will be even more hype and hoopla next year.
