Tournament Notes:

  • Perhaps never in the history of the WSOP have two such compelling final tables been played on the same day. Events #4 and #5 will both play to completion on June 6th.
  • There are several competing storylines in Event #5. Among the top interests are sure to be: Annie Duke competing for her second WSOP gold bracelet; John Phan going for his first, after a crushing second-place finish at last year’s WSOP; and 2000 world poker champion Chris “Jesus” Ferguson competing for his sixth gold bracelet.
