Event #30: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low

The Champ is Here!

[user80015] • Level 1: 50-100, 75 ante

Daniel Idema just took his seat in the purple section.

Idema only has one cash this WSOP, but there is probably some comfort returning as the Champion, and Idema will hope to parlay that confidence into not just a second cash, but potentially a final table and a back-to-back repeat.

Daniel Idema ca 4,500

Event #30 is now underway with the cards in the air!
