Becker Beware: Landon Tice Ships Wynn Millions Event for $32,025

Landon Tice'ssummer crossbook with Jeremy Becker may not yet be underway, but the "child of the sim" is already heating up. On Wednesday, Tice took down a 2024 Wynn Millions Poker Series$400 buy-in event for $32,025 and his first Wynn trophy.

The victory for Tice, who topped a 512-player field after coming into Day 2 with 20 big blinds, shows that he means business in his upcoming high-stakes bet with Becker, which was set up by Daniel Negreanu and stipulates that both players crossbook 25 mutually played events between May 28 and July 1.

Tice took a bit of a shot at Becker in his winner's photo, giving a yawn while holding up Becker's trademark three-five offsuit.

But Tice has some catching up to do. The victory marked his first live victory since November 2020, when he took down the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) Venetian $1,100 Main Event for $201,529. Since then, Becker has won 38 live tournaments, according to The Hendon Mob.

The festival is in full swing at Wynn Las Vegas with more than $8 million in guaranteed prize pools from Feb. 19-March 24. It will culminate with the $3,500 buy-in Wynn Millions Championship, has already awarded several trophies and five-figure prizes.
