2014 November Niner Felix Stephensen hopes to become Norway's First WSOP Champ

For a country of 5 million people that generally frowns upon poker, Norway has certainly turned out some good players over the years. Annette Obrestad, Johnny Lodden and Thor Hansen are just some of the greats who come to mind when speaking of Norwegian poker. But despite their lineage of successful pros, one thing that Norway is lacking in is a WSOP Main Event champion.

WSOP Big One Finalist Richard Yong busted in Vegas Betting Ring

High stakes poker pro Wai Kin (Richard) Yong was one of eight men arrested in connection with a World Cup betting ring. The group consisted of Chinese and Malaysian nationals who were renting villas at Caesars Palace for the 2014 World Cup. Allegedly, they took in millions of dollars worth of bets during their time in Las Vegas.

Jerry Yang's 2007 WSOP Watch for Sale

In the past, we've seen quite a few WSOP gold bracelets put up for sale on eBay. But here's a new one to us: Jerry Yang's 2007 WSOP Main Event watch is now for sale on the internet auction giant.

As many poker players know, Yang won the 2007 Main Event along with $8.25 million. And one of the side gifts that he earned for making the final table included a Corum Admiral watch. Such a timepiece retails for around $9,000 these days, although Yang's could be worth more or less - depending on the seller's interests - based on the special WSOP engraving.

Could WSOP Main Event learn from LeBron James

By most accounts, the 2014 WSOP Main Event was a success. This year's Main Event drew 6,683 players - the fifth largest field in the tournament's history. Moreover, attendance increased greatly from last year's field of 6,352 players. And we can mainly owe the attendance increase to the $10 million guaranteed first-place prize that's up for grabs come November 10th. But is the promise of a giant top prize really a sustainable model for the future?

Haixia Zhang wins 2014 WSOP Ladies Championship

Haixia Zhang certainly didn't come to the 2014 WSOP as one of poker's bigger names. In fact, she was simply hoping to compete in the Event #51 "Monster" tournament, which didn't go too well for her. Wanting to try again and still having some time left before heading back to Los Gatos, California, Zhang entered the $10k Ladies Hold'em Championship. This turned out to be the greatest poker decision of her life as she battled through a 793-player field to win the tourney and $153,470.

Phil Ivey furthers Place in Poker History with 2014 WSOP Win

There's a very, very small and exclusive club that's reached double digits in WSOP gold bracelets. Phil Hellmuth leads off the list with a record 13 bracelets, and he's followed by Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan at 10 bracelets each. It looks like we can add one more name to this list because Phil Ivey just won his 10th bracelet in Event #50 of the 2014 WSOP.

Robert Mizrachi wins First-ever WSOP Dealer's Choice Tournament

While dealer's choice is always a fun little poker game to play among pros, it's never really been considered a very viable WSOP tournament option before. But this year, WSOP organizers decided to give a dealer's choice event a go - and it was a smashing success. Many players loved the event, where they could choose from one of 16 different poker variations when it was their turn to pick. As described by some of the entrants, Event #41 of the 2014 WSOP really took on a home-game feel.

Steven Wolansky shakes off Devastating Tourney Loss to win 2014 WSOP Event #36

Entering heads-up play of the Event #36 $1,500 2-7 Draw Lowball tournament, Steven Wolanksy probably wasn't sure what to expect. After all, the 26-year-old poker pro had been in this position before last year in a $2,500 Eight Game Mix tournament - with devastating results.

Joe Cada wins 2014 WSOP Event #32 - Proves that Main Event Champs can still play

Recent WSOP Main Event champions haven't exactly had the best track record of winning additional gold bracelets. In fact, you have to go back to 2003 to find a Main Event winner who collected a subsequent bracelet. 2001 ME champ Carlos Mortensen won an event at the 2003 WSOP - the last time that this happened...until now that is.

What's Next for Dutch Boyd after 2014 WSOP Victory?

Before the 2014 World Series of Poker, Dutch Boyd was well on his way to becoming a cautionary tale for young poker pros. It wasn't too long ago that he was complaining about being broke and not being able to get a "real job." But now, Boyd won't have to worry about getting a real job since he won the 2014 WSOP Event #33 $1k NL Hold'em tournament along with $288,744.
