Lots of action yesterday, and with the postponement of the $1k Stimulus Event final table, looks like we’ll have three bracelets awarded today. Here’s the run-down.
:: Event #4 ($1k NLH): It took three long days, but the 6,012 record field is finally down to nine. In between stealing souls and generally creeping people the fuck out, Dan Heimiller, a ginger, is chip leader, stacked at 4,155,000. He’s followed by Steve Sung with 3,395,000. Full chip counts here.
:: Event #5 ($1,500 PLO): Final table play starts at 2pm PT. Kevin Iacofano is the chip leader with 770,000. Also remaining are An Tran (445,000), Jason Mercier (384,400), and Dario Alioto (315,000). Full chip counts here.
:: Event #6 ($10,000 Seven Card Stud): Since play is mandated to stop at 3am, we didn’t reach a final table yet. But that should happen soon as there are only 11 remaining. The big stack when play resumes is Eric Drache with 785,000. Other big names going after a bracelet are Hasan Habib (593,000), Jeffrey Lisandro (524,000), Max Pescatori (401,000), Greg ‘FBT’ Mueller (208,000), and Daniel Negreanu (191,000). Play resumes at 1pm PT. Full chip counts here.
:: Event #7 ($1,500 NLH): An impressive 2,791 turned out for the first $1,500 NLH tourney. Only 337 remain. Victor Greely is the overnight chip leader with 195,300. Also remaining include but are certainly not limited to Shaun Deeb (42,000), Jonathan Little (31,700), ElkY (15,000), and Tiffany Michelle (12,000). Get a full recap here.
Event #8 ($2,500 No-Limit Deuce-to-Seven Lowball): Mostly a big name field of 147 played down to 35. Big stacks include Erick Lindgren, Phil Hellmuth, and Layne Flack. Phil Ivey, Freddy Deeb, John Juanda, and Erik Seidel are still alive as well. Get a full recap here.
