WSOP Commentary - Year of the Chainsaw?

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.  Don’t laugh, but there are enough events left where Kessler could conceivably break the record.  I honestly don’t think he will break it, but I do think he might give tying it a sweat.

However, let’s play soothsayer and ponder what would happen if Kessler went into the Main Event tied with Edvakov at 10.  I can just see the min-cash talk starting at about 1,000 players out of the money.

However, I have been comparing Kessler’s
WSOP results 2010 with Edvakov’s year in 2008.  Here is Edvakov’s year:
