Thursday June 21, 2012 : Massachusetts player Christopher Tryba took down event 35 – a $2,500 Mixed Hold'em Limit/No-Limit contest which attracted 393 hopefuls, among them top international stars.
Tryba ended with a memorable flourish – a straight flush against Eric Cajalais that brought him his first WSOP bracelet and the main prize of $210,107.
