Tony Cousineau started playing poker in 2000, and since then he has amassed 58 WSOP cashes for $708,106, though a gold bracelet has escaped him.
Thomas Muhlocker doesn't have a WSOP cash to his name, but he tore it up on Season 10 of the European Poker Tour and finished second on that tour's Player of the Year Race. Muhlocker has made the trip to Vegas and recently squared off against Cousineau in a friendly hand of razz.

Muhlocker smiled and then checked behind.
