Joe Cada Makes Headline News In The WSOP Main Event Once Again!
Professional player Joe Cada is once again in the record books for the biggest event in poker. At age 30 he is in great shape to earn his 4th WSOP bracelet and the chance of conquering the World Series of Poker Main Event for the second time.
In 2009 he became the youngest player to win the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Championship with only 21 years old. That year the 1st place prize for this prestigious event was a massive $8.5 Million, the champion this year will be collecting a similar figure of $8.8 Million after a huge turnout of players that made the field 7,874 registrations.
Cada recognizes how tough it was to be in the final table, as he was facing elimination only a few hours earlier when he went all-in and survived when he hit a flush on the river. “The first year I won, I was almost double the average the whole tournament, until the final day and the final 15. I was never all-in until the final table. This time, I’m all in a ton of times, so it’s different.”
Insane Final Table Bubble Hand In The 2018 WSOP Main Event
A huge hand was dealt last night to determine the last 9 players standing in the World Series of Poker Main Event. The players involved in the hand were Nicolas Manion from the USA, Yueqi Zhu from China and Antoine Labat from France, all getting monster hands and putting all their chips in the middle pre-flop. AA vs KK vs KK with Manion holding the aces go and Labat with the biggest stack.
The final outcome of the hand resulted in Zhu being eliminated in 10th place ending his dream for the title but with a reward definitively worth the effort ($850,025). The hand will go down as one of the sickest bad beats in WSOP Main Event history.
