Michalski Wins WSOP Circuit Event!!!

The other Michalski in poker.

Consider him my new favorite cousin I never knew I had and the newest member of Team Pokerati even though he hasn’t yet picked up his patch. Big props to William Michalski (I think he goes by Bill) from Syracuse, New York.

Michalski is the official winner of Event #15 in the WSOP-Circuit festival going on currently at Caesar’s Palace. In reality there was a 7-way chop. But Michalski did get credit for 1st place and $15k of tournament winnings — making Bill the top Michalski in poker. (The Hendon Mob really needs to include Dream Team in their standings.)

UPDATE: Turns out instead of living in Syracuse he now lives in Las Vegas, having moved here and turned pro just a couple months ago. Am I supposed to have him over for dinner?

More details on the event (and chop) itself in Nolan’s report from Caesars below.
