The $50,000 Poker Players Championship is the most prestigious tournament of the year and this year a new name was added to the David ‘Chip’ Reese memorial trophy. Phil Hui took down the event for a whopping $1,099,311 after battling through a stacked final table that included Josh Arieh, Bryce Yockey, Shaun Deeb, and Dan ‘Jungleman’ Cates.

On the show, Hui also talks about his pro golf career and just missing out on a spot on the PGA, transitioning to life as a poker professional and how his relationship with Loni Harwood propelled him to get the very best out of himself as a player.
