The total prize money amount paid in this series exceeded $1 billion. This amazing sum was shared by the tournament winners and can be surely considered as a record.
This thing happened at the recent Legends of Poker tournament. A billionth dollar went to the recreational player TJ Shepherd, who got $10,405 after busting in the 47th place. Although amateur players have won several major tournaments during the last month, Shepherd had little hope for such a success. He hasn’t reached even the top 10 players level. However, busting at a relatively early stage can be considered a fortune. In addition to the prize he received a free ticket to this tournament, so he can show all his skills the next year. Several gifts from sponsors and a place in the World Poker Tour history were also a reward for TJ. WPT spent 15 years to overcome the mark of $1 billion in prize money.
As for Legends Of Poker, the tournament has already reached the final stretch. Six players determined the champion in the final table. At first, the best player of WPT 2007 JC Si Tran was in the lead. Phil Hellmuth also got to the final but was defeated by Art Papazyan who appeared to be rather lucky during the heads-up.
