2021 Wynn Fall Classic Awards $24 Million; Rice & Brookshire Among Big Winners

2021 Wynn Fall Classic

The 2021 Wynn Fall Classic ran from late September through November 21. During that time, more than 21,000 entrants competed and in excess of $25 million in prize money was awarded.

PokerNews was on-site to provide live updates from some of the marquee events including:

There was a slew of big side event winners throughout the series, which included Argentina’s Federico Castaine, who became the first six-figure winner of the 2021 Wynn Fall Classic after topping a 1,790-entry field to win the $1,600 buy-in, $1,000,000 GTD NLH event for $361,180.

Another big winner was poker veteran Shawn Rice, who bested a 786-entry field to win the $1,100 NLH Seniors tournament, which nearly doubled its $400,000 guarantee by creating a $766,350 prize pool. Rice, who hails from Texas, took down $116,039 for his victory. It marked the second-largest score of his career, which dates back to 1994.

Meanwhile, players like David Brookshire ($550 H.O.R.S.E. $50K GTD for $29,110), David Jackson ($550 NLH $100K GTD for $46,033), Eric Mizrahi ($500 NLH $100K GTD for $41,025), and Fabio Freitas ($400 NLH for $21,182) all claimed titles.
