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 #29, the $2.5K NLHE, ended with Pierre Milan besting the field of 1,165 to win $536K+ and his first gold bracelet. World Poker Tour Champion Matt Salsberg ended up busting in 3rd for $207K, while 2013 WSOP bracelet winner Justin Oliver had to settle for runner up.
Top tier online grinder Calvin Anderson took down Event #30, $1500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo, for his first gold bracelet and $190K+. Anderson had to beat World Poker Tour Champion Joe Tehan heads up to complete the victory, and recent F5 interviewee Jimmy Fricke went deep with a 7th place finish.
Only 15 players survived Day 2 of Event #31, the $1500 NLHE tournament. Matt Stout claims the chiplead headed into the final day of play. Players reconvene at 1pm PST to crown a champion.
Event # 32, will also be playing down to a bracelet winner today as only 13 remain in the $10K NLHE Championship. This ridiculously stacked field has Max Silver holding the chiplead and a list of sickos trying to take it from him including Joe Cada, JC Tran, Scott Clements, George Danzer, Layne Flack and Erick Lindgren. 2pm it all goes down.
Amit Makhija, Martin Finger and Faraz Jaka all hold top 10 chipstacks in Event #33, a $1K NLHE. There’s only 119 left from the original 1688 and they return at 1PM PST to play down as close to a Final Table as they can.
The $1500 Seven Card Stud event (#34) also has a ton of noteables with chips up top. Steve Sung, Bryan Campanello, Brian Hastings, Steve Albini and Marcel Luske all hold top 10s as 60 return at 2pm to whittle the field down.
Two new events get off the ground today: Event #35 $5K NLHE 8-handed and #36, a $1500 2-7.
