Event #56: $500 SALUTE to Warriors – No-Limit Hold’em

After ten live cashes in the course of 13 years, Steven Genovese casually grabbed the event #56 bracelet and its associated $217,921! His previous best performance was a $21,018 win in a $185 daily tournament at the Rio in 2015.

“It feels amazing! I was pinching myself the whole time!”, the now retired fireman said. “You can do it, too. If I can do it, you can do it.”

Event #58: $3,000 6-Handed Limit Hold’em

Jason Daly made his starting chip lead work for him yesterday as he didn’t let the other 16 players upset his run to victory. A first bracelet for American who adds $165,250 to his live earnings, now reaching $918k.

The most famous names fell early yesterday: Joe McKeehen couldn’t built a stack and was the first eliminated (17th), shortly followed by Dan Shak (14th).

“This is my third World Series final table. I had a huge chip lead like this last year and blew it, so I was focused, and I was doing everything I could not to screw this one up”, said the happy winner.
