2009 WSOP Round-Up: Van Alstyne Wins One, Alaei Goes for Two


Bryan Micon and Shannon Shorr just couldn't focus and capture that ever-elusive first bracelet.

:: Event #31 ($1,500 H.O.R.S.E.): After coming up short in the $3k HORSE event a week ago to finish second, James Van Alstyne finally grabbed his first WSOP bracelet. He earns $247,033. Not winning were NWP’s Bryan Micon (4th – $69,505) and our favorite guy-with-a-hot-girl-porn-star’s-name Shannon Shorr (5th – $50,881). Get full results here.

:: Event #32 ($2,000 NLH): Blah. Here.

:: Event #33 ($10,000 Limit Hold’em): The final table is basically a battle of dudes who Erick Lindgren and Daniel Negreanu back or have backed. In progress, Daniel Alaei is going for bracelet #2 of the 2009 WSOP and is the current chip leader. Also still alive are Matt Glantz, Greg ‘FBT’ Mueller, Pat Pezzin, and Chad Brown. Follow the action here.

:: Event #34 ($1,500 NLH): Around 150 remain as of post time. Cody Slaubaugh is the chip leader. Other big named big stacks include James Mackey (a ginger), Roland de Wolfe, ElkY, and Phil Hellmuth. Get full chip counts here.

:: Event #35 ($5,000 PLO): Kind of early in this one, but Phil Ivey was bounced when his quads lost to a straight flush. Live poker is so rigged harharhar. Follow here.
