The Wynn Poker Room

It is no secret that Wynn poker is the most lavish poker room in the world. Its summer series is set to feature millions of dollars in guarantees. Typical buy-ins range from $300 to $5,000. Similar series are held at the Venetian and may be adopted by other card rooms. But for now, you can expect a poker room to offer you a warm welcome at Wynn. Here are some facts you should know about the Wynn poker room.

Dominique Mosley is in the Chip Lead

The Day 2 of the World Series of Poker has been completed. After Day 1A, the 240 players from those two days combined to play Day 2AB on Monday. Dominique Mosley closed the day with a chip lead of 933,000. Other players in the lead included Pavlo Veksler, Alex Foxen, and Daniel Negreanu. This makes Mosley the overall chip leader of the WPT event.

The Wynn Poker Tournament has shrunk, and Dominique Mosley is in the chip lead with 933,000 chips. Her closest competitors are Pavlo Veksler (797,000 chips), Alex Foxen (760,000), and Russell Thomas (747,000).

Alex Foxen is Second in the Chip Count

With 933,000 chips, Dominique Mosley leads the Wynn Poker Tournament. Second in the chip count is Pavlo Veksler, followed by Alex Foxen and Anthony Huntsman. They are joined in third place by Russell Thomas (760,000 chips) and Joey Grasso (760,000). Among the remaining players, there are three amateurs in the money: Jesse Yaginuma, Alex Foxen, and Anthony Huntsman.

The two players are in their early stages of the tournament. Kristen Bicknell won $12,085 in Event #30, a $1,100 Deep Stack No-Limit Hold’em event. Bicknell finished second in the $5,250 buy-in SHRPO Championship last year. Meanwhile, Alex Foxen has earned over $17 million in live tournaments and cashes from multiple events.

Six players remained on Day 1C. Day 1C chip leader Joseph Zona, who finished second, went home in the bottom half of the field. Foxen, the 2018 Global Poker Index Player of the Year, has over 650,000 chips and is second in the chip count. Day 2AB will conclude after five ninety-level levels. The chip count is now up to a record high of $650,000.

After day four, the field has shrunk to just 18 players. Among the first to bust on Day 4 was Foxen, followed by Chris Moorman, Daniel Buzgon, and Maria Ho. The second bust on Day 4 was Carlos Alvarado, who ran pocket kings into Alex Foxen. Those who are left are Jason Koon, Amit Makhija, and Benn Glaser.

In a week where he won his fourth straight high roller event, Foxen finished second in two of the three tournaments. During that stretch, he raked in more than $208,000, including three second-place finishes. The first day of the tournament saw Foxen place second in the $10,500 High Roller, but was then knocked out by eventual winner Aaron Mermelstein.

After three days of play, the Wynn Millions event featured more than 1,328 entries. The prize pool exceeded the $10 million guarantee by $3 million. With 1,328 players, the Wynn Millions tournament was the largest $10k poker tournament outside of the WSOP. The tournament was split over two days. The winner was Alex Foxen, who busted out of the tournament shortly afterward.

Dominique Mosley has 933,000 Chips

The chip count in the Wynn Poker Tournament is dwindling and Dominique Mosley leads with 933,000 chips. He is followed by Pavlo Veksler and Alex Foxen, who each have 787,000 chips. Anthony Huntsman and Russell Thomas are tied for fourth, with 760,000 and 750,000 chips, respectively. However, this doesn’t look good for any of the remaining players.

The $10 Million Wynn Millions tournament continued with Day 2AB action. There were 240 players in the event, and the chip lead was held by Dominique Mosley. After five levels, Mosley led with 933,000 chips. Other top players included Alex Foxen and Pavlo Veksler. Ultimately, the winning player walks away with $2.01 Million in prize money, while the runner-up collects $1.25 million.
