While some have been going about poker fun at poker’s “lovable nit”, Kessler has turned around and cashed 8 times at this year’s WSOP.   You read that right 8 times. Nikolay Evdakov cashed 10 times in the 2008 World Series of Poker.   That is the current record.

*TOC Change* The Tournament of Champions has been pushed up a day to July 3rd.   With 17 players remaining tournament staff realized they may need to push up the TOC and add an extra day.   Right now its set at 7pm on July 3rd unless a player is at the $25k 6-max final table or still in the Ante Up For Africa charity event then in that case it will be pushed to 9am on Sunday July 4th.   They will be playing down to a winner on the 4th regardless of play on the 3rd.

A lot of players, fans, and the “poker media” have been giving their thoughts about selections for the Tournament of Champions and how they think that this player or that player has been slighted and that “there aren’t enough younger champions” etc. *Players That Were "Omitted" Had Not Done Enough* First, this is the WSOP Tournament of Champions. Those that argue a player based on their overall accomplishments are missing the boat on the purpose of this game. It is supposed to be an all-start game for WSOP Champions.
