No bracelets were won on Tuesday at the 2011 WSOP…but dare we say…many were lost?
Here’s a look at the latest:
:: Event #8 ($1,000 NLH) – Final table play was stopped with three remaining. The U.K.’s Sadan Turker holds a large chip lead, stacked at 7,910,000. He’s followed by Sean Getzwiller with 3,000,000. Short-stacked by still kicking is Jon “Pearljammer” Turner, a ginger, who is trying to shake the somewhat back-handed compliment Best Ginger Without a BraceletTM moniker. Turner has his work cut out for him, as he’s stacked at 1,680,000. As a consolation prize, Turner at least can rejoice in the fact that he halted play for awhile after noticing some marked cards. Or not. Read about the incident here.
:: Event #10 ($1,500 NLH Six-Handed) – The starting field of 1,920 is down to 15. Jeffrey Papola is the chip leader, stacked at 1,088,000. It’s a mostly friends and family remaining field. First place is playing for $544,388. Get full chip counts here.
:: Event #11 ($10,000 Omaha Hi/Lo 8oB) – The starting field of 202 is down to 22 in this one. French Canadian Guillaume Rivet (ring ring, ring ring) enters Day 3 as chip leader, stacked at 809,000. He’s followed by Italy’s Alessio Isaia with 535,000. Some other notables remaining include Mike Sexton (321,000), Steve Billirakis (232,000), Shaun Deeb (146,000), Freddy Deeb (127,000), and Josh Arieh (113,000). First banks $465,216.

:: Event #12 ($1,500 NLH Triple-Chance) – A total of 1,340 entered with 160 surviving the day. The field pays out 144 places, so they’re right at the money bubble. First earns $352,808. Peter Hernandez ended play as chip leader, stacked at 124,700. He’s followed by Jonathan Karamalikis with 122,700. Right behind them is the spectacularly-breasted J.C. Tran with 117,000. We haven’t written much about the spectacularly-breasted one the past year, mostly because his absolute pwnage of the no-limit tournament scene stopped. After cashing at an insane rate from 2006-09 and rolling up over $7M in earnings), Tran went quiet in 2010, with two cashes for just over $10k. However, he’s already got a $22k score under his belt for this year’s WSOP, and seems to be refocused/running well, which is great news for people who like looking at pictures of girls with big boobs.
