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.
