Another $1,500 buy-in No Limit Hold'em tournament and another large field and prizepool. Event #26 seated 1,594 WSOP gold bracelet hopefuls seeking a piece of the $2,151,900 prize pool paid to the top 171 finishers. The winner walks away with $408,953 in cash and the champion's gold jewelry.
The dream came true for Andrew Rennhack of Seattle, Washington. Rennhack's pocket Sixes outpointed second place finisher, Michael Katz's failed flush and straight draw.
