Michael Binger ended the WSOP with eight cashes after taking a two-outer in the Main Event while on course to possibly cash. This is notable because eight cashes ties the record for most in one year, and nine would have broken it. According to Jeffrey Pollack, he regards these events as events numbers 56, 57, and 58 of the 2007 World Series of Poker. Therefore, we have to ask: if Michael Binger cashes in one of these events, does he break the record for WSOP cashes in one year? If the bracelets count, why wouldn't the cashes? We talked to Michael about his tournament thus far and about this much talked-about issue.
