Femi Fashakin had to overcome the biggest field to win his bracelet. He beat a field of 28,371 players to take home $1,147,449 in the BIG 50, a $500 no-limit hold'em event; the biggest live tournament in the history of the game. Phillip Hui took home a comparably sized $1,099,311, but he "only" had to defeat 73 others to take home the gold.
