2014 WSOP Event #50 $1,500 Eight Game Mix

by Joseph Smith Sr.

A $1,500 buy-in WSOP event probably attracts a group of unknowns and hometown heroes, right?  Wrong, unless names such as Dan Heimiller with a 2014 gold bracelet,  one of poker's most popular pros Daniel Negreanu and the poker superstar himself, Phil Ivey, were all at this Eight Game Mix tournament.  They were all at the eight-handed final table except Dan Negreanu whom bubbled the final table and finished in 9th place.

Need more names to convince you that a trip to the WSOP during any day of play will provide plenty of well known poker professionals plying their trade.  How about Italy's own two bracelet Max Pescatori, or maybe John Cernuto, Bill Chen and even a former WSOP Main Event winner, 2004 Champion Greg Raymer?  And this is just those names that made the top 49 finishers winning some of the prize money.

Entries totaled 485 and created a prize pool of $654,750 with $166,986 destined for the winner.  The main attraction and the major reason all the poker greats were here was the magnetic allure of WSOP gold.  And how did that work out?

It was a storybook ending with poker superstar Phil Ivey mowing down the table and claiming his tenth  World series of Poker gold bracelet.  Bruce Yamron had the honor of finishing second to the poker great.

I wonder if Phil Hellmuth is looking over his shoulder?  I wonder if he can hear the freight train rapidly approaching?  Will Hellmuth do a typical Poker Brat move and take down a bracelet or two to pad his collection of WSOP gold?

Stay tuned folks because this show is just getting started.  Better yet, head for the Rio in Las Vegas and see poker history being made daily.

The following lists the eight final table players' order of finish and the prize money awarded to each.

  1. Phil Ivey------------- $166,986

  2. Bruce Yamron ------ $103,162

  3. Dan Heimiller ------ $66,110

  4. Aaron Steury-------- $44,195

  5. Stephen Chidwick---$30,426

  6. Yuebin Guo ----------$21,547

  7. Christoph Haller-----$15,687

  8. Alex Rocha ----------$11,726

Congratulations to Phil Ivey for winning his 10th WSOP gold bracelet and the winner's share of $166,986 in cash in WSOP Event #50 - Eight Game Mix.
