The Other Final Bits Of Business Of The 2010 WSOP
November 10, 2021
With the crowning Monday of Main Event champion, Jonathan Duhamel, the 2010 World Series of Poker- a tournament series that began more than 5 months ago- concluded this week in Las Vegas.

The hype produced by such a prestigious finale can tend to be all encompassing, but it’s best not to let it be, to avoid skipping all the other important 2010 WSOP business that also transpired this week.

Perhaps one of the most notable examples, with the elimination of Michael Mizrachi in fifth place on Saturday, it became official that Frank Kassela, a professional poker player out of Las Vegas, was now the 2010 WSOP Player of the Year.

Kassela, thanks to wins in both Events #15 and #40, as well as cashes in 4 others, was able to join a prestigious list of past WSOP Player of the Years that includes Daniel Negreanu, Jeff Lisandro, Allen Cunningham and PokerRoad’s Jeff Madsen.  To go with the honor of the title, Kassela also earned a “customized gift” package worth $25,000.

Also during this week, both poker legends Erik Seidel and Dan Harrington were formally inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame, in a ceremony proceeding the heads-up portion of the Main Event on Monday.  In that ceremony, Nolan Dalla and “The Godfather of Poker” Doyle Brunson, spoke on behalf of the two new inductees, reminding those in attendance of the many notable accomplishments in poker that lead these two to this incredible new career milestone.
