Listen, the Entities are not ones to piss in anyone’s corn flakes.*
By all measures, the 2013 WSOP has been a massive success so far. Big fields. Good attitudes. Back to normal.
Even we were going to be a Chainsawy-nit about anything though, it’s that we haven’t had any buzz-worthy winners yet.
It’s early. We know. That can quickly change. We’re aware. It could even change…dare we say…today?

:: Event #5 ($2,500 Omaha/7CS 8oB) – A stacked final 20 didn’t materialize into anything other than a final table lacking in the luster department. Mike Gorodinsky of St. Louis won it, banking $216,988. Get full chip counts here.
:: Event #6 (The MILLIONAIRE MAKERTM) – Benny Chen of Canada (does Prince Edward count as the not really Canada French Canada part of the country? Can we get a ruling on this? Lance? Gavin?) leads the final table. Bracelet winner Dan Kelly is second overall. Friends and familyTM after that. First earns nearly $1.2M. Get full final table chip counts here.
:: Event #7 ($1,000 NLH) – Ok, now we’re talking. The field of 1,837 is down to a stacked final table filled with a who’s who of “Internet pro’s.” Amit Makhija is the chip leader. Matt Waxman, Jason Koon, Brent Hanks, Eric Baldwin also remain. Get full final table chip counts here.
:: Event #8 ($2,500 8-Game Mix) – The field of 388 is down to 20. Marco Johnson leads. Robert Mizrachi and Josh Arieh still remain. Get full chip counts here.
