Cliff’s Notes – Kabbaj’s Bracelet, 6-Max Stalled & Other WSOP Action
Everything you need to know in 60 seconds.
Wanna get caught up on the WSOP but don’t need every detail to do so? We got you. Here’s what you need to know in 300 words (or less).
Event #25, the $2500 the Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low, concluded yesterday as John Kabbaj denied Thomas Keller his lifetime 2nd bracelet as went on to win over $267K and his own 2nd WSOP bracelet. Erik Seidel (6th), Mike Leah (5th) and Tom Schneider (8th) also found their way to the final table but fell short.
They were supposed to award a bracelet in Event #24, the $5K 6-max, but the head-up match outlasted the will of the players and so Pierre Neuville and Kevin Eyster will come back today at 1PM PST to wrap this up. Andrew “Luckychewy” Lichtenberger (3rd), Bryn Kenney and Jeremy Kottler (5th) all had a seat at the final table.
Only 12 of 1594 remain in Event #26, the $1.5K NLHE. While Ryan Welch currently holds a massive chiplead, Team Ivey Pro Dan Smith is sitting in second while poker Monster Will “The Thrill” is hanging in there in 8th. These guys return at 1PM to play for the $408K+ and the bracelet.
The $1500 H.O.R.S.E., Event #27, wrapped up day 1 with only 160 players left. John Monnette and Dutch Boyd both have top 10 chip stacks, but the field is stacked with pros inclining Greg Raymer, Andy Bloch, Allen Kessler, Jimmy Fricke, Jonathan Duhamel and Phil Ivey. It’s a 1PM return.
The $10K PLO landed 160 runners and only 66 survived the day (metaphorically). With the championship events, it’s a guaranteed stacked field and John Juanda, Antonio Esfandiari, Chino Rheem and David “Devilfish” Ulliott all sit with top 10 chipstacks. The list of remaining players looks like a who’s who of poker superstars. Action resumes at 2PM.
Two more events kick off today – a $2500 NL (Event #29) and a $1500 Seven Card Hi-Low (Event #30)
