2014 WSOP Fun Facts Part 3

by Joseph Smith Sr.

We begin with another archive image from the 2004 WSOP Main Event.  We see Winner Greg Raymer keeping a close watch on the table.  More importantly, we see the hauntingly intense face of Josh Arieh staring down the barrel of the camera.  This is a well documented, historic time slice of the famous WSOP tournament and you can read about it here on Wikipedia.

Although we have published most of the press releases from the 2014 WSOP we will continue to point out what we consider to be interesting and important facts from the summer event.  OK. Let's get right to it.

The range of players' ages ranged from just 21 to 93 years old.  Can anyone out there list a sport that has such an age spread among competitors?

This year's youngest player was Zachary Zaffos of Weston Beach, Florida whom turned 21 on Day 1B of the Main Event and then played on Day 1C in the Main Event making him 21 years and one day old.  The oldest player was William Wachter of Carmel, NY whom was 93-years-old.  Both of the players were eliminated on Day 1.

The oldest player to cash in the 2014 WSOP Main Event was 90-year-old Henry Orenstein.  He finished 8th in Event #61, the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud World Championship and collected $31,419.  For those wondering how tough the competition was, Phil Hellmuth finished two spots up from Orenstein in 6th place.

Mr. Orenstein is the inventor of the game changing hole cam that allows TV viewers to see a player's hole cards.  He is also a member of the Poker Hall of Fame.  In 1996 he entered the Seven-Card Stud championship and took home the WSOP gold bracelet.  Surviving the three days of intense, world class competition is quite a feat for any player, much less a 93-year-old poker player.
