WSOP – Quick summary of the weekend so far

James Mackey wins Event 22, $5000 No-Limit Hold’em. Michael Binger (3rd place in 2006 WSOP Main Event) finished in 3rd place. This is Binger’s 4th cash of the WSOP so far.

Scott Clements wins Event 23, $1500 Pot-Limit Omaha. Eric “Rizen” Lynch finished 2nd. This is Scott Clements second WSOP bracelet.

Event 24, $3000 World Championship Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Split Eight-or-Better is looking very interesting. The final table is packed with stars. This is the line up:

  1. Eli Elezra $303,000
  2. Scotty Nguyen $255,000
  3. George Hardie $182,000
  4. David Sklansky $171,000
  5. Dutch Boyd $170,000
  6. Thor Hansen $167,000
  7. John Harkness $141,000
  8. Marshall Ragir $28,000

I hope Elezra wins since he’s Israeli. I wouldn’t mind Sklansky winning either because he’s a Jew.

Nothing notable in Event 25, $2000 No-Limit Hold’em. Ross Boatman is still in contention. 130 players are left in the tournament.

Event 26, $5000 H.O.R.S.E. is really interesting. There are 115 players left in the event and there loads and loads and loads of pro’s left. Here is a list of all the pro’s still in contention:

Daniel Alaei, Chris Bell, Marc Karam, Gavin Smith, Erick Lindgren, Gavin Griffin, Erik Seidel, Cyndy Violette, Phil Ivey, Jesse Jones, John Juanda, Bill Edler, Ralph Perry, Greg Mueller, David Benyamine, Daniel Negreanu, Isabelle Mercier, Doyle Brunson, Greg Raymer, Men “The Master” Nguyen, Kristy Gazes, Annie Duke, ZeeJustin Bonomo, Chris Ferguson, and Cliff “JohnnyBax” Josephy.    

You can see from this why top players respect the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E more than the Main Event. The Main Event is a crap-shoot, but H.O.R.S.E. events are packed with stars. In the $50k event there will be even more stars and no donks.That’s all for today. Good Night.
