Shane Warne finishes 597th at WSOP

Shane Warne is a former Australian cricket player and is regarded as one of the best bowlers in the history of the game. But nowadays one of his favourite hobbies is poker. So of course he attended the World Series of Poker event in Las Vegas this year.

He finished 597th out of the entire field of 6,420 players. With this finish he collected more than $23,000 in prize money. These were his statements: “Really disappointed to be out of the WSOP main event here in Vegas, especially as I got all my chips in good, but once again got unlucky. Feeling pretty grumpy! Time to get hammered tonight and jump on a plane tomorrow.”

Although he was in high spirits after he advanced to the fourth day his chances at winning the whopping almost $10 million number one prize were shattered. Maybe another year Shane.
