WSOP First Fifty Honors - Hellmuth is Bad Boy, Negreanu fan favourite

To mark the 50th anniversary of the WSOP, there was a special event: WSOP First Fifty Honors. Here all players of the WSOP, who stood out in different ways – in by far the best-known poker tournament series in the world – became particularly outstanding. The World Series awarded players in seven different categories.

Most Memorable TV Hand

In the first category the “Most Memorable TV Hand” was awarded. A bluff by Chris Moneymaker won against Sam Farha, who faced the WSOP in the Heads Up of the Main Event 2003. Moneymaker bluffed Farha after a not arrived Straigt- and Flushdraw with an all-in from his pair of 9s – the best hand.

Most Impressive WSOP Main Event Win

It is also Chris Moneymaker who can dust off a prize in a second category. The “Most Impressive WSOP Main Event Win” is his victory at the 2003 Main Event, where he qualified for the final round with a $86 Satellite Tournament on Pokerstars to leave the tournament as the winner.

Best Overall WSOP Performance (Single Year)

As “Best Overall WSOP Performance (Single Year)” Negreanu was awarded a prize. In 2013 he won two impressive bracelets and also played on four final tables.

WSOP’s Favorite Bad Boy

Phil Hellmuth is named “WSOP’s Favorite Bad Boy”. The 15 times bracelet winner may take this special prize home with him because even after many years at the poker table he is still known for his emotional reaction to bad beats and how few others have shaped the poker world.

Fan Favorite

Daniel “DNeg” Negreanu can now call himself “Fan Favorite”. The Pokerprofi is considered with most as sympathy carriers. Why this is so, he proves again and again in his vlogs on YouTube.

Most Likely to Succeed (Most Bracelets 2020-2070)

Exciting is the category “Most Likely to Succeed (Most Bracelets 2020-2070)”. Here the WSOP committee took a look into the glass ball and selected Justin Bonomo. They believe that the American professional, who has already collected over $44,000,000 in prize money, will continue to convince at the tables of the world in the future. Not a bold prediction to choose the number 1 all-time money list, but certainly not a bad one.

Four Most Important Players in WSOP History

Finally, the “Four Most Important Players in WSOP History” award rounded off the gala. In addition to Moneymaker, Negreanu and Hellmuth, who have already won prizes in other categories, poker legends Doyle Brunson also took part. Already inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 1988, the 85-year-old still sits at the poker table and measures himself against the mostly much younger players.
