On a day when Phil Ivey was grabbing all the headlines for making his fifth final table, it was Massachusetts native Chris Tryba who came out on top, winning his first WSOP bracelet in Event #35: $2,500 Mixed Hold’em. Tryba’s a true grinder who plays all over, including the East Coast and travels the WSOP Circuit as well. He’ll be taking home $210,107 for the win.
