More Final Tables Reached At WSOP


Jennifer Harman doing well in $10 000 buy-in Seven-Card Stud event

It's all happening at the 41st World Series of Poker with a number of key events running concurrently and keeping the railbirds running from venue to venue Tuesday night.

Event 13 – the $1 000 buy-in NLHE – had played down to a final table of nine when InfoPowa went to press at 11pm Tuesday Vegas time, after a slew of late night eliminations brought the remains of an original 3 042 field down to just 9 survivors.

The day began with 56 players returning for Day 3, which plenty of eliminations that included names like Ylon Schwartz and Andy Black.

When Daniel Duong was sent packing in the number 10 spot, picking up $27 323 for his trouble, the final table was set and looked like this:

1 David Baker 2,553,000
2 Matthew Vance 1,731,000
3 Steven Gee 1,540,000
4 Nicholas Heather 993,000
5 Kyung Han 613,000
6 Daniel Thomas 602,000
7 Jared Hamby 423,000
8 Mats Gavatin 393,000
9 Jeffrey Gross 281,000

The winner will collect a $472 000 reward and the kudos of a WSOP bracelet when play resumes.

Yan Chen won his first WSOP bracelet in event 14 - $1 500 buy-in 2-7 Draw Lowball No-Limit competition after a tough heads up against Mike Wattel just before midnight.

The event attracted a starting field 250 players, and Chen received a first prize worth $92,817.

Jennifer Harman on 1.3 million chips leads the final table of event 15 – a $10 000 buy-in Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Championship which attracted many of the game's biggest stars, initially including Phil Hellmuth, Phil Ivey, Eli Elezra and Erik Seidel.

Of the 170 players who registered for the competition only 18 survived to see Day 3 with Frank Kasella in the lead. Notable casualties included Richard Ashby, Mike Sexton, Phil Hellmuth, Gus Hansen, Erick Seidel and Eli Elezra.

On what could prove to be the final day, by 10.30pm Vegas time the final table of six had been decided when Allen Kessler eliminated the two low-stack players, sending Dario Minieri and Vladimir Schmelev to the cashier for $52 366 and $63 457 paychecks respectively.

This is the final table:

Kirill Rabtsov

Jennifer Harman (chip leader on 1.3 million as InfoPowa went to press)

Frank Kassela

John Juanda

Steve Zolotow

Allen Kessler

Event 16 - the $1 500 buy-in Six-Handed NLHE contest showcased a very high attrition rate on Day 1 which saw the cash bubble burst as a field of 1 663 was reduced to only 146 survivors in hectic action.

And this was despite a rather late start at some of the tables!

One of the highlights of the event is the participation of the modest former WSOP Main Event 2007 champ Jerry Yang, playing with characteristic discipline and courtesy. Other big names seen at the tables were Eric Buchman and Mark Seif.
