While the WSOP weekend kicked off with a bang on Friday, things slowed down some by Sunday. One bracelet was given out. One still hasn’t. Here’s the latest.
:: Event #6 ($5,000 NLH Mixed Max) – The Main Event isn’t as long as this one. The Mixed Match championship is set to resume at noon PT on Monday. Joseph Cheong vs Aubin Cazals. Follow the updates here.
:: Event #7 ($1,500 Omaha 8oB) – The story here was if Gavin Griffin could come through and win his second bracelet (a mere 8 years after winning his first). Alas, he lost heads-ups, being out-dueled by amateur Herbert Tapscott of Alabama. For the win, Tapscott banks $264,400. Get full results here.
:: Event #9 ($1,500 NLH Re-entry) – The total field ended up at 3,404, with 514 surviving to the merged Day 2. First place will earn $781,398. A total of 342 get paid. Get full chip counts here.
:: Event #10 ($5,000 Seven Card Stud) – A total of 194 entered, creating a first place prize of $190,826. Bryn Kenney is the overnight chip leader. Get full chip counts here.
For those asking, we’ll start getting some Girl on the Rails shots this week. Given how spread out the WSOP is this year, not as easy to cover the ground in year’s past.
