Opening night kicks off with two hours dedicated to the $50,000 buy-in Poker Player’s Championship. One hundred and sixteen of the most decorated players in the game generated a prize pool of $5.6 million in a mixed game event which tests players in eight different disciplines.
Each player hoped to walk away with the $1.5 million dollar first prize, a coveted WSOP bracelet, and the title "best all around poker player."
After four days of grueling play, the historic final table was set and it included, for only the second time in World Series of Poker history, brothers – Robert and Michael “the Grinder” Mizrachi. For either to prevail they’ll have to get past 2008 World Series of Poker Europe Champion, John Juanda, two-time bracelet winner Daniel Alaei and high-stakes cash game specialist David Oppenheim.
