Terrence Chan Within Two Cashes of Evdakov's RecordPublished on June 24th, 2012 12:59 pm EST
Terrence Chan cashed in yet another event on Saturday afternoon, bringing his total number of cashes at this year's World Series of Poker to eight.
Chan's eight cashes so far this year brings him to within two of the record for most cashes at a single World Series of Poker, which is currently held by the late Nikolay Evdakov. Evdakov set the record at the 2008 World Series of Poker when he cashed in an impressive 10 events.
Prior to Evdakov's ten cashes in 2008, the record for most cashes in a single WSOP was eight, and this record was shared by Phil Hellmuth, Humberto Brenes, Michael Binger and Chad Brown.
In 2008, Evdakov cashed ten times and didn't make a single final table.
In 2012, Chan has cashed eight times (so far) and has yet to make a final table as well, despite coming VERY close on Saturday (Chan was eliminated in 7th place in the $2,500 Limit Hold'em Six-Handed event).
Let's take a look at Chan's eight cashes so far this year:
Event #2 ($1,500 No Limit Hold'em), 189th, $2,893
Event #5 ($1,500 Pot Limit Hold'em), 38th, $4,011
Event #9 ($1,500 No Limit Hold'em - Re-Entry), 285th, $3,216
Event #11 ($1,500 Pot Limit Omaha), 26th, $8,014
Event #14 ($1,500 No Limit Hold'em Shootout), 99th, $5,295
Event #20 ($5,000 Limit Hold'em), 12th, $15,830
Event #31 ($1,500 No Limit Hold'em), 20th, $19,012
Event #40 ($2,500 Limit Hold'em), 7th, $17,107
There are 18 bracelet events left at this year's World Series of Poker, including the main event. Can Chan tie or break Evdakov's record?
