The World Series of Poker is the biggest poker tournament in the world. The tournament started out as an event that was extremely exclusive. Only a few players from around the United States would end up playing in the tournament that was always held at Binion?s Horseshoe.

By the 2005 World Series of Poker the tournament had grown dramatically. In 2005 , the World Series of Poker was held at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino. This was the locations for all but two days of the final event. The last two days of the Main event were held at Binion?s Horseshoe. This would actually be the last time that the final table for the World Series of Poker would be held at Binion?s Horseshoe.

The prize for the World Series of Poker was enormous. The winner was scheduled to make a whopping sum of 7.5 million dollars. The main event concluded on the 15th of July.

While first place had a lot of money on the line, there was plenty of money remaining for rest of the top 9 players. Second place was scheduled to make 4.25 million dollars, third place would be awarded 2.5 million dollars, 4th place had a 2 million dollar prize attached, 5th place had 1.75 million dollars on the line , 6th place would win 1.5 million dollars, 7th place would take home a substantial prize of 1.3 million dollars, 8th place would get 1.15 million dollars and 9th place would be the last prize of one million dollars or more. The prize for 9th place was an even 1 million dollars. This is interesting, as for years the tournament would grant 1 million dollars to the winner of the whole tournament. This just goes to show how much the tournament had grown over the years.

The Main event had 5619 people entered to play. Each player was required to pay an entry fee of 10 thousand dollars in order to play in the tournament. This was the largest tournament that was ever played in a brick and mortar casino at the time of the tournament.

While in years past it was required that the players win major tournament to qualify, many people were qualifying for the World Series of Poker in different ways in 2005. There were tons of players that managed to win the opportunity to play in the tournament by winning online poker tournaments. There were and are many people that feel like this is a disgrace to the sport. They feel like these players are not as talented as the professionals and that it makes the field worse. Ultimately , it makes the sport more popular and more money is available because of the online players.

The winner of the 2005 World Series of Poker was Joe Hachem. Hachem took home the bracelet and a 7.5 million dollar prize for his accomplishments at the tournament.

The 2nd through 9th place finishers in order were Steve Dannenmann, John Barch, Aaron Kanter, Andrew Black, Scott Lazar , Daniel Bersdorf, Brad Kondracki and Mike Matusow. These players would all leave with 1 million dollars or more for their excellent play in the field of over 5000 players.

Local police investigators have cleared a police officer of wrongdoing and released security camera footage that showed the man who was fatally shot by the officer had attacked him aggressively and threw his own six-year-old daughter to the floor.

The investigation, which had taken more than 10 days, concluded that the officer had abided by the police code of conduct.

Although the investigation has come to an end, the fallout from the incident had reached far beyond the discussion of whether the police had used excessive force.

The highly "politicized" incident not only unveiled a series of corruption scandals among local officials but also stirred up a nationwide debate that continues to polarize public opinion , as some, in deep mistrust of the authorities, continued to challenge the authenticity of the footage and demand that the officer be severely punished.

Xu Chunhe, 45, was shot dead at Qing'an railway station on May 2 in Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.

The Harbin Railway Public Security Bureau in Heilongjiang immediately formed an investigation team that conducted an on-site investigation , reviewed all the security camera footage, and interviewed more than 60 witnesses.

The investigation found that Xu, who was traveling with his 81-year-old mother and three children, blocked the entrance to the waiting room of the train station that left some 40 passengers unable to board the train.

After Xu refused to step aside, the train station staff called the police. Xu allegedly initiated the assault on the police officer , Li Lebin, and continued the attack despite multiple warnings.

Video footage showed that Xu repeatedly tried to grab the police officer's long baton, punched the officer in the head, pushed his mother to Li, and eventually threw his six-year-old daughter to the floor in front of Li as a threat.

After Li took out his gun , Xu continued to attack the officer, leaving Li no choice but to shoot him.

Li said in an interview with China Central Television that he did not fire a warning shot because he was afraid that the bullet could hurt other people in a congested space like a train station.

He said that Xu was constantly targeting his hand, making it difficult for him to aim his gun.

Xie Yanyi, a lawyer representing Xu's mother, told the Global Times Thursday that Xu had a history of petitioning and "the result is an elaborate local government conspiracy and it will not change the fact."

Xie asserted that "the fact" was that Li was suspected of committing the crime of intentional murder and should be punished.

Some Net users supported the police while others said that the video was incomplete and the reason why Xu stopped others from entering the station still remains unclear.

However , an official from the publicity department of the railway police told the Global Times that the video is comple.
