Poker Writer Chad Holloway Wins First Gold Bracelet of 2013 WSOP
Few know or appreciate poker’s history more than Chad Holloway.
Now, he’s just made history on his own by winning the first WSOP gold bracelet of 2013 to be played here in Las Vegas.
Just a week ago, Holloway seemed thrilled to be able to play in a WSOP Circuit event, where I saw him in New Orleans. Days later, he’s come to Las Vegas and won the most prestigious prize in the game.
Here’s Chad with me early this morning at 3:45 am, right after he won Event #1. He’s going to wear that gold bracelet with pride., and rightfully so. He defeated nearly 900 players. Moreover, attendance was up 23 percent for our first event at the WSOP.
The photo below shows Chad’s rail of supporters — quite a group of poker media royalty.
