Things were a little calmer yesterday at the 2009 WSOP. All eyes today will be focused on the Event #20 final table. Here’s the rundown:
:: Event #20 ($1,500 PLH): The story of the day will be if Erik Seidel can capture WSOP bracelet #9. He is third in chips going into final table play, stacked at 337,000. Seidel trails John-Paul Kelly (627,000) and Jason DeWitt (476,000). The man responsible for putting a brutal bad beat on Joe Sebok and knocking him out of the tourney, Kyle Carlston, is fourth with 320,000. Get full chip counts here.
:: Event #21 ($3,000 H.O.R.S.E.): The money bubble burst and 21 of the original 452 remain. Zac Fellows is overnight chip leader, stacked at 471,000. He’s followed by James Van Alstyne with 455,000. Ylon Schwartz (186,000), Chau Giang (149,000), and Gavin Smith (121,000) are also still alive. Get full chip counts here.
:: Event #22 ($1,500 NLH Shoot-Out): Pretty much a friends and family final field. See a list of Day 1 winners here.
:: Event #23 ($10,000 NL 2-7 Lowball Championship): A total of 96 entered and 60 made it to Day 2. Roland de Wolfe is the overnight chip leader, stacked at 186,000. Plenty of big names remain. However, not making it to Day 2 are Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, durrrr, Huck Seed, Scotty Nguyen, and the man who pwned this event for years, Billy Baxter. Get full chip counts here.
