2018 WSOP

Daily recaps of the 2018 World Series of Poker

The 2018 World Series of Poker is underway in Las Vegas. Miss any of the action? Don't worry, this file has all of our daily recaps.

We're reaching the heart of the 2018 World Series of Poker, with winners crowned in several key signature events on the schedule and other big tournaments right around the corner. Germany's Arne Kern won the Millionaire Maker for his first WSOP gold bracelet and $1,173,223, outlasting a final table that included names like Joe McKeehen, Barny Boatman, Ralph Massey and eventual runner-up Sam Razavi. McKeehen now holds the distinction of making the final tables of three massive-field events -- the main event (which he won), the Millionaire Maker and the Monster Stack. Australia's Michael Addamo won the The Marathon for $653,581, while Johnny "World" Hennigan captured his fifth career WSOP bracelet in the $10,000 HORSE; for Hennigan it was his third deep run and fourth cash of the series so far, after finishing seventh in two previous events -- putting him second in the 2018 WSOP Player of the Year race behind Elio Fox, who has a win and a second place finish. Hanh Tran fought back from a heads-up chip deficit of more than 16-to-1 to win the $1,500 limit 2-7 triple draw lowball event, while Filippos Stavrakis emerged victorious in the $1,000 pot-limit Omaha event.
