WSOP End of Week Summary
Andy Bloch has won his first ever WSOP bracelet, after earning a victory in Event #7, the $1,500 Seven Card Stud tournament. In other news, the final four of Event #6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em Mixed-Max has been determined, and it’s expected that the winner will be known by the end of the weekend. Event #8, the $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8 or Better has just finished Day 2, and the field has been reduced from 220 to just 20. The bracelet should be decided on Day 3.
One of the most noteable eliminations of the day was Phil Hellmuth, who had a brief blow-up during the day’s play, then went on to be eliminated a little while later. He did manage to make it in the money (his 87th WSOP cash), but was a fair way from adding to his WSOP bracelet count.
Event #9, a $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Re-Entry tournament, has just started. This event is in it’s first year, and it seems to be doing well, with 1,696 people signing up to try it out.
This year’s World Series of Poker features more than 60 events, and has already shown a mix of old and new faces at the top of the chip counts. Keep checking back for more tournament updates as winners (and losers) start to become apparent.
