Notable Information

Only one tournament wrapped up with a player in the winner’s circle yesterday, and that was in Event 37. Poker pro Robert Mitchell of Salt Lake finished on top to win nearly $300K. It was his first bracelet.

“Obviously, the money is surreal,” he commented, “but that’s what poker players play for – the bracelet. To have one now on my resumé feels good, and it gives me more validation as a poker player.”
