2009 WSOP Round-Up: Daniel Alaei Wins Omaha 8B Championship

Shannon Elizabeth, a woman, did not make it to Day 2 of the $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. Event.

No laughing matter: Shannon Elizabeth, a woman, did not make it to Day 2 of the $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. Event.

Another “name” pro bags a bracelet and Brock Parker goes for number two. Here’s the round-up:

:: Event #18 ($10,000 Omaha 8B): It was a stacked final table that included Daniel Negreanu, Annie Duke (a woman), and the intense stare of Scott Clements. However, by the time heads-up play began, Daniel Alaei emerged as a man who needs to add a few consonants to his last name where is he from Ethiopia the overwhelming chip leader, quickly dispatching the aforementioned Clements in just two hands. For the win, Alaei banked $445,989 and his second WSOP bracelet. Get a full recap here.

:: Event #19 ($2,500 NLH Six-Handed): A lot of big names made the money but none of them will reach the final table. The remaining 10 will come back today to play down to the final table and title. Top two stacks are Joseph Serock (1,745,000) and Brock “tsoprano” Parker (1,603,000), who is going for his second bracelet in a week. It’s just like high school. Get full chip counts here.

:: Event #20 ($1,500 PLH): Day 1 played down from 633 to 62. Jason DeWitt is the overnight chip leader, stacked at 184,700. Also remaining are Mark Seif (83,000), former college bball stand-out and friend-of-Erick-Lindgren Blake Stepp (76,800), Erik Seidel (61,400), Kathy Liebert (40,200), Roland De Wolfe (40,000), Mike Sexton (35,000), and Joe Sebok (24,000).

:: Event #21 ($3,000 H.O.R.S.E.): The final event of the day had 452 entrants with 197 surviving. Rob Amereno is overnight chip leader, stacked at 96,800. Plenty of big names are still alive. See for yourself here, because you know what they say about seeing…it’s believing!
