    This week, Clayton “The Joker” Fletcher bested a field of 183 to earn $26,000 and a beautiful trophy for winning the $600 no-limit hold em tournament at Venetian Las Vegas. Said Fletcher, “I’ve won dozens of tournaments before, but all of them have been in non-majors (buy-ins under $500). This one means a lot to me, getting it done in the summer during the WSOP and all. Plus, the trophy is going to look great on my mantle!”
