    Wednesday, August 9th, 2006 by Mike

This year’s World Series of Poker has some of the biggest increases between finishing positions and some of the biggest heartaches to go with it. Take, for instance, the Main Event that is going on right now: Sirous Jamshidi, Jeffrey Lisandro, and David Einhorn finished in 16th, 17th, and 18th place respectively. Each one of them received $659,730 for their efforts in the WSOP over the past couple of days. However, hadone of themhung in long enough to finish 15th place, he would have received $907,128, almost a quarter of a million dollars difference.

Jamie Gold is still in a commanding lead having just over 23,000,000 in chips as the WSOP Main Event nears the final table. Of the final 15, only 3 players will not leave as millionaires. This is not only a WSOP first, but it’s a first of any poker tournament ever held.
