2016 WSOP Preliminary Events: Three More Bracelets Awarded as Halfway Point Nears

As the 2016 World Series of Poker nears its halfway mark, three more bracelets were awarded at the Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. One was a tournament that needed some overtime to take care of business, while the other two events played out as scheduled on Saturday. Event #23 – $ 2000 No Limit Hold’em Two men, Bulgaria’s Viliyan Petleshkov (8.175 million) and Spain’s Cesar Garcia (5.48 million) were the final two men left standing on Friday evening when the WSOP curfew sounded its bell.

Let’s take a quick look at the latest owners of poker jewelry: Event #14: $ 1,500 Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold’em Poker pro Jason DeWitt won one of the most difficult tournaments of the WSOP, the $ 1,500 “Millionaire Maker.” Introduced a few years ago as a more affordable (relatively speaking) event with a million dollar guarantee for first place, the Millionaire Maker achieved instant popularity and is always one of the largest live tournaments of the year. This year, it attracted 7,190 entries, making it the eighth-largest live poker tournament of all-time. For the most part, DeWitt cruised through the 107 hands of the final table, which was composed mostly of first-time WSOP players.

Valeriu Coca Cleared of WSOP Cheating Charges, Awarded Winnings

Moldovan poker player Valeriu Coca has been cleared by the World Series of Poker and the Nevada Gaming Control Board of cheating allegations from this summer’s WSOP and will be awarded his $ 54,545 winnings from his tenth place finish in the $ 10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em Event. The controversy surrounding Coca began when he made a deep run in the headliner Heads-Up event, knocking out multiple strong opponents on his way to a fifth place finish. Coca himself was not particularly well-known or accomplished, though that doesn’t necessarily mean anything, as lesser-skilled players can certainly win a series of heads-up matches. What frustrated his opponents was not that he won, but how he won. His actions and his pacing made it seem like he might have been marking cards. Connor Drinan made the first public accusations of Coca, posting the following on Two Plus Two: Pratyush Buddiga was the
