Lots of 2013 WSOP updates, little time. Here’s the latest.
:: Event #40 ($1,500 NLH) – Another, “Hey, that dude was awesome in 2005″ winner. Jared Hamby, aka the Wako Kid, outlasted a field of 2,161 to capture his first bracelet. For the win, Hamby banks $525,272. Not saying that Lizzy Harrison has the mp, but Lizzy Harrison has the mp. Since she’s been dating Hamby, kid has cashed in 5 WSOP events with two final tables (including this one). Final note, it’s been discussed that Hamby looks like Nathan Fillion, right? Google image, bitches. Get full event results here.
:: Event #41 ($5,000 PLO Six-Handed) – The big news here was that nobody from Canada won the event. Ex online superstar Steve Gross captured his first bracelet, earning $488,817. [……….] finished seventh for $44,574. Get full results here.
:: Event #42 ($1,000 NLH) – An even 2,100 entered this one. Easily the most famous and well-known player in the field, possibly in all of WSOP history won it. No not Michael Phelps. No not two-time Main Event winner Dennis Phillips. Yes, Norbert Szecsi. He’s from Hungary. But you already knew that. Don’t bother getting full results, you don’t know anyone else.
:: Event #43 ($10,000 2-7 Draw No Limit) – The story going into the final table was if Layne Flack could win his seventh bracelet. Has anyone in poker wasted more God-given talent than Layne Flack? Maybe Stu Ungar? Layne wanted to punch us in the face once. It was for this post. Sebok talked him out of it. True story. Anyway, Flack finished sixth for $35,549. Jesse Martin ($253,524) defeated David “Bakes” Baker ($156,674) heads-up for the bracelet. If you’re keeping score at home, the two David Bakers are doing very well this WSOP. So well that we’re waiting for Lance Bradley to write a feature on them titled, “The Fabulous Baker Boys.” Don’t let us down Lance. If you don’t, you know Gary Wise will. Get full results here.
:: Event #44 ($3,000 NLH) – The field of 1,072 is down to 22, but lacks some luster. The immortal Niall Farrell is chip leader (792,000). If you’re not familiar with him, you’ve gotta know Sandeep Pulusani (712,000). No? Zohair Karim? Larry Quang? Pedro Rios? What is this, the fucking United Nations or something? Jason Mercier (566,000) and Nam Le (327,000) are still alive. Get full chip counts here.
