Since our last update, there have been 15 cashes by players from this region. Daniel Neilson came close to reaching an official final table when he busted in 10th place during Event 42, a result that banked him $19,939.

Former WSOP Main Event winner Joe Hachem finally got off the mark when he finished 20th in Event #46 for $8,550. Hachem has been seen playing a busy schedule, but has not had the rub of the green so far. Maybe he is saving his run good for another deep Main Event run?

Australia had three women cash in the Ladies Event. Jackie Glazier finished 83rd, Tania McBride in 17th and Leanne Haas coming ever so close to winning Australia’s second bracelet of the series when she finished second for a cool $107,616.

Other large scores have been had by Tyron Krost (12th in Event #52 for $38,282), AJ Bertenshaw (16th in Event #56 for $26,342) and Elias Jaajaa (33rd in Event #56 for $17,456).
