Event #21 $500,000 Est Final Results: Anonymous Tops 8-Way Deal


Play went until sunrise last night, where the final eight players all agreed to a chip chop. The player who finished with the lion's share was Anonymous, a regular on the tournament scene and cash games at The Bicycle Casino.  He ended up walking away with just over $78,000, locking up nearly second place money with eight players left. Other notables on the LA poker scene who took part in the chop were Patrick Karschamroon, Christopher Tolone, and Chelsea Proctor. Check out the details for the chop below, and congratulations to all the players who cashed in the event.

That wraps up our coverage of The Summer Poker Series! Thanks for tuning in all month, and be sure to come back here in two weeks when we start coverage of the WPT Legends of Poker, taking place all August long!
