2005 WSOP Event #16: $1,500 No Limit Holdem Shootout

, 2005-06-22, by TwoGun

Submitted by: Ozone

A shootout tournament requires players to win a single-table tournament before advancing on to play winners of other single-table tournaments. With 780 entries into the recent WSOP no-limit hold'em shootout event, entrants' single-table tournament skills were put to the ultimate test. A player would have to battle through several single-table tournaments to reach the bracelet. The WSOP no-limit hold'em shootout event had roughly 75% more entrants than its limit counterpart, which is a testament to the growing popularity of no limit hold'em tournaments.

In dominant fashion, Anthony Reategui mowed through the competition to win his first WSOP bracelet. By entering this event, Anthony Reategui is now $269,100 wealthier. Paul Kroh earned $148,380 for 2nd place. Pros Phil Gordon and Erick Lindgren finished 3rd and 9th, respectively.

"Crew" member Brett Jungblut just missed making another final table with a 12th place finish. Poker superstars Michael "the Grinder" Mizrachi and John Juanda also chalked up yet another money finish in this event.
