The winner of this pot, Crisp, has never cashed in a World Series of Poker event. In fact, of all his $78,398 in tournament earnings, they've all come from his home country of England. Crisp is currently having his best year on the felt, having already earned over $65,000. That's thanks in large part to a win at the £500 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry Event at the Dusk Till Dawn Monthly Deepstack for £39,000. Crisp took the lion's share of the four-way chop and bested a field of 292 players to do so.
Vedes was on the losing end of this pot, but he surely knows how to make a deep run in the WSOP Main Event. His best finish came in 2009 when he took 19th in the grand daddy of all tournaments for over $350,000. In all, Vedes has 22 WSOP cashes and will be looking to make this his 23rd and a big one at that.
