There are three players who have never won any dollars at a tournament of any significance. (Based on what I could find online. If I'm wrong, please let me know.)

Two players from NY, and two players from Nevada.

Two players from overseas. (I guess they signed up early enough that last day.)

Phil Ivey is the biggest career tournament winner by far among the group. (From now on we should call Hellmuth, the other Phil.)

Youngest player is Joe Cada at 21. (I hope he really is 21. If not, I guess he has to forfeit!)

Oldest player is Kevin Schaffel at 51. (Dispelling the myth that once you are over 50, you can't play this long in a grueling poker tournament.)
