WSOP World Championship
 
The 2018 Main Event capped the largest-ever WSOP in terms of entrants in the 49-year history of the event. A total of 123,865 players from over 100 countries entered the 78 events on this summer’s WSOP schedule.

Cynn out-lasted all over the course of 10 days, capped off by a 10-hour, 199-hand heads-up marathon against runner up Tony Miles. Cynn finished 11th in 2016. The final table in total took 442 hands. Amazingly 2009 WSOP Main Event Champion Joe Cada also made the final table and finished 5th. With 7,874 players it's the second biggest Main Event in history, the 2006 edition holds the record with 8,773 players.

Phil Hellmuth took down his record setting 15th bracelet in Event #71, the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em (30-minute levels) for $485,082, defeating Steven Wolansky heads-up. Hellmuth is now 5 bracelets ahead of his three closest pursuers, Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan and Phil Ivey. Only Ivey has managed to stay in touch recently (having won his last victories in 2013 and 2014); Brunson and Chan haven’t won since 2005.
