Notable Information

There are players who make friends throughout the poker world and garner respect through their play. Joseph Cheong is one of them, so when he was on his way to winning his first WSOP gold bracelet, friends expressed their support in person and online.

Cheong was born in South Korea but raised in America, and the 33-year-old poker pro has a long career of poker highlights behind him. That includes 59 WSOP cashes, seven of which were final tables. Now, he also has one victory in the $1K Double Stack NLHE. Even so, he was calm about the win. “I have been playing poker for so long,” he said. “It was just another day at work.”

Ismael Bojang is another name that has been around the poker world for years despite still being only 30 years old. The German player is a financial advisor but also a regular poker player, who has 75 cashes at the WSOP among his other many accomplishments. This year alone, he cashed in 10 WSOP events, and then he claimed his first victory in Event 40.

He planned to celebrate with friends in Vegas but jet back home on a planned flight today. “I would love to stay longer,” he said of his plans to fly back to Germany, “but I have important stuff to do at home that I’m really looking forward to: family stuff, weddings, my girlfriend is waiting.”

Event 41 was a big one – the Seven Card Stud Championship – and recognizable poker pros were all over the final table. And when it came down to heads-up play, it was none other than John Hennigan up against Daniel Negreanu. The battle was strong, but Hennigan felt he had luck on his side. It also didn’t hurt that stud was his favorite game; he’s widely regarded as one of the best stud players in the world.

Hennigan reflected about the sixth WSOP bracelet, one that means quite a lot. “This is just a sentimental thing, the stud,” he said. “I’m happier with this than I would be with any other, to be honest with you.”

The last event of the day was also over in one day, and it was all played online. The $500 NLHE Deepstack was offered to online poker players in Nevada and New Jersey, and it was Dan Lupo from the East Coast who took it down.
