It was bracelet-making time on Monday at the 2013 WSOP, as three weekend events wrapped and another almost came to conclusion.
On with the updates…
:: Event #26 ($1,000 Seniors) – Kenneth Lind outlasted a record-setting field to bank the bracelet and $634,809. He defeated Dana Ott, not a woman, heads-up ($390,601) for the title. Get a full recap here.
:: Event #27 ($3,000 Mixed-Max) – Isaac Hagerling of Chicago took this one down, banking $372,387 and his first bracelet. He defeated Max Steinberg heads-up ($231,501) for the title. Some big names just missed this bracelet, including Jeremy Ausmus (3rd – $132,748), Jason Koon (4th – $132,748), [……….] (5th – $51,561), and Brandon Cantu ($51,561). Get full results here.
:: Event #28 ($1,500 NLH) – (French) Canada does it again. In a big way. Ok ok ok. So we looked at the WSOP updates and saw the above picture. Knew nothing about the guy other than a salad wouldn’t hurt him. Anyway, saw the guy and said, “Holy shit that guy has to be from Canada.” Then clicked the prize pool tab and saw the Canadian flag next to his name. His name is
Robert Paulson Jason Duval, he’s the most Canadian looking Canadian ever, and he just won his first bracelet and $521,202. Get a full recap here.
:: Event #29 ($5,000 H.O.R.S.E.) – Yesterday we tweeted that the 2013 WSOP might be the Year of the SchneiderTM. And that was before Tom Schneider ended final table play–with five remaining–as chip leader in the H.O.R.S.E. event. Schneider is stacked at 2.5M. He’s followed by Viatcheslav Ortynskiy (Gesundheit!) with 680,000. Get full chip counts here.
