Dennis Phillips going for bracelet at WSOP record tournament
At this year's event #29 ($1,000 Seniors NL Hold'Em) 33 players are left out of staggering 4,128 who started. Two well-known profiles in the shape of Dennis Phillips and Hoyt Corkins are well-positioned to do some good!
The former Team PokerStars Pro Dennis Phillips made a name for himself at the WSOP Main Event in 2008 where he finished 3rd for $4,500,000.
Since then the American has had a few good cashes on the nice side of $100,000 - among those a win at a $1,100 WSOP Circuit tournament in October last year.
Now Phillips is once again closing in on a great result. In the record-breaking big event #29 ($1,000 Seniors NL Hold'Em) he's among the remaining 33 players out of the 4,128 who started.
The massive field is actually the biggest one-day-turn up in the history of the WSOP. Even the previous Main Events with close to 10,000 players were beaten because the registrations were spread out over 4 days.
Another seasoned pro Hoyt Corkins is breathing heavily down Phillips' neck in 7th place. The over-50 tournament is lead by Kevin DeTienne whose got twice the stack of no2, Radwan Khuri.
