In addition, van Hoof has won $358,580 from live tournaments, and also is the owner of a popular poker training site. He will enter the final table as chipleader , and commenting on his remarkable run, said:
“It’s been amazing. I ran hot and there were a few bubbles that I could make [use out of]. When we were down to 18, I wasn’t happy with my table draw, but I won some good hands, got some chips and things went really well from there.”
Felix Stephensen (32.775m)
Norwegian pro Felix Stephensen, 23, makes his living playing pot-limit Omaha cash games online, and only has $22,118 in live tournament earnings as he says he doesn’t like tournaments.
“I’m feeling pretty good. This is pretty exciting. I don’t think I’ve ever been part of something this major. When it’s so much up top and its life-changing money, you kind of get tempted to [play in a tournament]. If it works out, it’s worth it. This is what every poker player dreams about,” explained Stephensen.
Mark Newhouse (26m)
Mark Newhouse is a 29-year-old Las Vegas pro with $2,773,673 in live tournament winnings, including victory at the 2006 WPT Borgata Poker Open Atlantic City for $1,519,020. He also made last year’s WSOP Main Event final table, an unthinkable feat in a post-boom poker world, eventually finishing in 9th place for $733,224.
“It’s a great accomplishment, but I can’t comment on greatest anything or stuff like that. I know it’s amazing, but I’m never going to say anything like ‘greatest’ with my name in it. That’s all I have to say about that.”
