With Daniel Negreanu’s second place finish in Event #14, a lot is riding on the Event #16 final table today. Both Jeffrey Lisandro and John Juanda are playing for a bracelet, and both have POY side bets (with Barry Greenstein) against the Negreanu and Erick Lindgren team.
Here’s the latest round-up.
:: Event #13 ($2,500 NLH): Keven Stammen of Ohio took down this friends and family final tableTM to bank $506,786 and his first bracelet. Garrett “GBecks” Beckman finished 10th. Roland de Wolfe bowed out in 15th and Phil Ivey in 18th. Get full payouts here.
:: Event #15 ($5,000 NLH): Day 2 wrapped with 17 players remaining. Isaac Baron has the overnight chip lead, stacked at 1,001,000. He’s trailed by David “The Dragon” Pham* with 880,000. Also in contention are Liya Gerasimova of Moscow (530,000), Mike Sowers (480,000), David Benefield (236,000) and Thomas Keller (195,000). Get full chip counts here.
:: Event #16 ($1,500 7CS): As noted in the lead paragraph, much like Phil Ivey’s 2-7 NL Lowball final table, this one has way bigger implications then just a bracelet and first place money. Jeffrey Lisandro is chip leader, stacked at 334,000. John Juanda is third with 287,000. An uncle-nephew team also made the final table, with Rod Pardey (whose son once went deep in the Main Event) and Eric Pardey as fourth and fifth in chips. Get full counts here.
:: Event #17 ($1,000 Ladies NLH): We already covered the important stuff in pictures here, but if you’re into things like chip counts, Tamara Tibbles, a woman, is the overnight big stack with 129,700. Other notables include last year’s winner Svetlana “Glum Girl” Gromenkova, a woman (62,800), J.J. Liu, a woman, (38,300), and Maria Hoooooooooo!, a woman (24,800). Get more stacks here.
:: Event #18 ($10,000 Omaha 8B): The final tourney of the day had 179 entrants, with about 130 or so making it to Day 2. The overnight chip leader is Chris Bjorin with 134,400. The intense stare of Scott Clements is second with 130,800. Plenty of big names still alive. Get full chip counts here.
