Father-daughter duo at the 2021 WSOP Team Event final table
Another live WSOP 2021 event ended at Rio Casino the other day. It was held in a team format, so two players at once received their gold bracelets.
The 2021 WSOP Event #59: $1 000 Tag Team No-Limit Hold`em collected 641 entries, which resulted in a $590 490 prize pool.
A pair of Americans made up a team to win the WSOP Event #59. In addition to the bracelets, Mike Ruter and Samy Dighlawi earned $113 360 in total.
Tomer Wolf from Israel and David Landell from the USA became runner-ups: they split a payout of $70 070.
Third place went to the Bothfeld team: Amanda Botfeld, author of "A Girls' Guide to Poker", and her father David Botfeld, who is a poker player.
She later shared an old family photo of her father teaching her to play poker when she was 15 on Twitter:
