WSOP 2009 Update – Week 1 Winners


It’s my favorite time of the year again. It always seems to take so long to get here but as the temperature heats up in Las Vegas, so do the poker tables at the Rio Casino. Of course, I’m talking about the 2009 WSOP.


Who will win coveted bracelets this year? Will Hellmuth get his 12th? What about Doyle and Chan, will they catch him? With the large fields of players it takes great skill and a lot of luck to win these days, but the top pros are poised to win a lot of bracelets in 2009. We’ll be giving you updates on the winners of each event and just how much money they take down with their bling-bling.
