Hats off to Samuel Stein. He won't feel like it right now, but he deserves a lot of credit for going so deep in his search for back-to-back World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets in the same tournament.
He was eliminated in 35th place and takes home a pay check for $8,812. His vanquisher was Vadzim Kursevich who is looking mean and keen with a chip stack of 400,000 chips. Interestingly, Kursevich has the chip leader Chino Rheem sitting two seats to his left.
