Sam Holden, Last Brit Standing WSOP 2011 and 2012, joins the Poker Millionaire club upon outlasting 6,544 players, busting out at 55th place and being awarded $128,384 for his performance.
Sam's total live tournament winnings now add up to $1,098,326 - making him a Poker Millionaire and a part of an elite group of players that made consecutive deep runs in the World Series of Poker Main Event. Sam Holden outlasted at total of 13,398 players in back-to-back years 2011/2012- an amazing demonstration of skill and mental stamina
Sam's final hand of the tournament was a brutal bad beat, as he was all-in holding pair of eights versus a pair of fives, with the pair of fives hitting a set on the flop. That's poker, and variance place a huge part in the game, making Sam's achievements even more impressive.
We congratulate Sam on his amazing performance - GG and WP M888!
