When Joe Cada won the WSOP Main Event last year, he broke Peter Eastgate's record for being the youngest ME champ in history. When Eastgate won in 2008, he was almost 22 years, 11 months old. Cada was still 21 when he won, about a week away from his 22nd birthday.
There is one player among the remaining field who still has a shot at breaking Cada's record -- John May. And if he were to win the Main Event, one would think his record would stand for a while. That's because John May turned 21 the day before playing in Day 1d!
May began today with a little over 1.8 million chips. He's slipped some in the early going, and is now down to about 1.25 million.
