It’s finally Rick Alvarado, 8th when starting the final table (a coincidence, really?), that took down Event #64: $888 Crazy Eights No-Limit Hold’em. Rick bought in seven times in the tournament to grab his first bracelet. Aleksandras Rusinovas, chip leader at the beginning of the day, had a rough day and finished 5th, while Vivian Saliba ended 4th.

Rick Alvarado, a bracelet and 8 cashes this year

Event #66: $1,500 Limit Hold’em made David “ODB” Baker a two time bracelet winner, his first being in 2012 in the $2,500 8-Game Mix.

The brand new Event #69: $1,000 Mini Main Event saw Jeremy Saderne ending with all the chips. The Frenchman had no more than $100,000 in live total earnings until making this huge score! We almost crowned a women as Lula Taylor (2nd) and her particularly aggressive style was very close to win the whole event.
