Online Poker News - Update: Perrins Shines at Event 9
8th of June 2011 - latestpokerbonuses.com
Another WSOP bracelet goes to the young Brit
One of the biggest surprises at this year's WSOP was a young Brit, Matt Perrins, who had only a little experience when he entered for the Event 9, the $1,500 buy-in No-Limit 2-7 Lowball competition, but nevertheless managed to battle his way through an entry field of 275 players, including some big names, and take the winner's bracelet along with a paycheck for $102 105.
In his comment after the big win, Perrins said: “To be honest, Day 1 the first three or four hours, I didn't really know what was going on here. I kept speaking to mates what to do here, what to do here. As the tournament got deeper, it was kind of similar to Hold'em where opening a lot of pot and three-betting wins you a lot of pots.”
Prior to this, Perrins mostly played in online tournaments, mainly at Full Tilt, but he also took a considerable prize at the IPT Venezia ($211 808), and the EPT Grand Final ($133 127).
In the final table, it was Perrins against a number of big names, including Bernard Lee, Chris Bjorin, Thomas Fuller, Josh Brikis, Robin Rightmire, and Jason Mercier. In the heads-up, the young Brit encountered and beat Bjorin, who already has two WSOP bracelets.
In terms of other events, an update from event 8 - the $1000 buy-in NLHE attracted a lot of attention, with 93 players remaining at Level 17, and Jon Turner holding a chip lead in the fierce competition for the lion's share of the $3.76 million prize pool.
Day six saw the beginning of Event 10 - the $1500 buy-in NLHE Six Handed, which recorded 1920 entries, including Humberto Brenes, Justin Young, WSOP champ Jerry Yang, Adam Junglen, WSOP champ Greg Raymer, David Pham, Dutch Boyd, Bill Chen, Jennifer Tilly, Faraz Jaka, Amit Makhija and Chad Batista. So far, 191 players were left at level 10, with Anthony Spinella in the lead.
As for the Event 11 - the $10,000 buy-in Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Championship it also saw a whole range of reputable players, such as Carlos Mortenson, John Juanda, Men Nguyen, Dan Kelly, Jean-Robert Bellande, Barry Greenstein, Robert Mizrachi, Freddy Deeb and George Lind, Richard Ashby, Steve Billirakis, Vanessa Selbst and many others. They all fight for a major share of the $1.9 million prize pool, and so far Daniel Negreanu held a chip lead, but he was closely followed by Allen Bari and Eric Buchman.
