WSOP Updates: Pros can't get no satisfaction
Three World Series of Poker players augmented the contents of their jewelry boxes yesterday, as the legendary tournament gifted new gold bracelets to the relative unknowns.
Pros were abound at the final tables, though not one managed to eke out a win for the title.
First place paid the Phonex, Ariz., native $176,358.
A United Nations-esque final table at the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em championship saw the convergence of international passport-toting players. No one exemplified multiculturalism better, though, than event winner Francois Safieddine, a French-speaking Lebanese man who immigrated to Denver, Colo., and now owns a trio of popular nightclubs in the city.
Daniel Negreau wanted his first gold bracelet and Erick Lindgren wanted in on the WSOP bracelet action at the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout, but both were summarily denied by 42-year-old Don Baruch.
The Tampa, Fla., businessman bested 899 other players in the event to win his first bracelet and $264,107.
