2011 WSOP: Kirk Caldwell Wins Bracelet; Selbst, Lindgren Lead PLO

Not all eyes were on Phil Hellmuth yesterday.

While the focus on Monday again was on Phil Hellmuth‘s pursuit of bracelet #12, a few more events were winding down, and another bracelet was awarded. Here’s the latest.

:: Event #32 ($1,500 NLH) – Canuck Kirk Caldwell waded through a field of 2,828 players to capture his first bracelet and $668,276. This is the fourth bracelet for Canada this year. That’s four more bracelets just this year than Stanley Cups Canada was won in the past 17 years. Caldwell defeated U.S. American Corbin White (why’s he gotta be white?) heads-up for the title.

:: Event #34 ($1,000 NLH) – We’re looking at a mostly friends and familyTM final 27. Michael Souza enters Day 3 as the big stack with 650,000. He’s followed by Event #13 ($1,500 NLH Shootout) runner-up Robbie Verspui with 602,000.We were hoping for a run by the man, the myth, the legend, Black Phil Ivey, Big Sldick, the one and only Dwyte Pilgrim, but he bowed out in 70th.

:: Event #35 ($5,000 PLO Six-Handed) – A total of 507 entered the last event of the day, with 110 surviving.
