Last Friday — at the end of Day 3 of the World Series of Poker — just over 1/3 of the original 1,864 players remained.
And at the top of those 746 was Andrew Liporace. Yes, the same Andrew Liporace who, 10 years ago, had just graduated from Staples High School.
If he could just keep going, he had a shot at $10 million.
The 45th annual event ended yesterday. Unfortunately, Andrew was no longer #1.
In fact, he was far down the list: #159.
I would say, “you win some, you lose some.”
But Andrew walked away with a cool $52,141.
He sounds like a winner to me.
