2005 WSOP Weekend Recaps

Three more events have wrapped up.  Winners include:

Hohn_1_1Steve Hohn – Event #14, $1,000 Seven Card Stud High-Low 8/OB.  Steve bested a final table that included Men the Master and John D’Agostino to win the bracelet.  When Hohn began heads-up play against Mike Wattel, he was out-stacked 2-to-1, and at one time was down 7-to-1.  But he battled back, and on the final hand scooped both the high and low to earn the victory and $156,985.  This pushes his career WSOP earnings to nearly $500,000.

SeifMark Seif – Event #15, $1,500 Limit Hold’em Shootout.  450 players entered this event, where you must beat your table to move on and play the winners of other tables.  The win brought Mark his first WSOP bracelet and $181,330.  Mark is no stranger to WSOP success though, as he’s earned nearly $1,000,000 during the course of his career.

Anthony Reategui – Event #16, 1,500 No Limit Hold’em Shootout.  Another first-time bracelet winner, Anthony conquered a field of 780 players and a final table that included Erick Lindgren (9th), Young Phan (4th), and Phil Gordon (3rd).  Anthony pockets $269,100 for the win.

For other notable finishes, keep on reading…

Gank In 7CS Hi-Lo, Huck Seed continued to show why he is one of the best stud players in the world by finishing 13th.  Barry Greenstein bowed out in 36th.  And some guy who is seriously named Wing Wong placed 37th.

For the $1,500 Limit Shootout event, Kathy Liebert made the final table, placing 7th.  Minneapolis Meehan and Humberto Brenes bowed out in 10th.  Young Phan and Brett “Gank” Jungblut took 19th.  But more importantly, Card Player Magazine took this terrific photo you see of Gank, who doesn’t seem to be laying off the blunts. 

But whatever he’s smoking, he should pass the dutchie (ironic) to the left hand side to Wicked Chops Poker, as he also placed 12th in the No Limit Hold’em Shootout.  Other notables include Peter Costa (14th), JC Tran (27th), Tomer Benvenisti (27th), Men the Master (having another great WSOP, finishing 40th), Annie Duke (53rd), and John Juanda (66th).
