Still no bracelets at the world series yesterday but the money time approach!
In the $1,000 Event #52: SENIORS No-Limit Hold’em Championship, 148 players remain and the bubble has popped a long time ago. David Kluchman ($663K in live earnings) has taken the chip lead and has legend Eli Elezra a few steps behind him with the 7th stack. Barry Greenstein will also come back today in the 51st position.
The $25k Event #53: High Roller Pot-Limit Omaha (8-Handed) gets close to crown its champion as five players will return to battle for the $1,2M prize. Ka Kwan Lau currently has the chip lead and is closely followed by John Beauprez, owner of a NL Hold’em bracelet. The biggest name of the table is clearly Shaun Deeb (4th) but he will have to battle hard to make his short stack grow.
Seventeen players are left in the $2,500 Event #54: Nine Game Mix 6-Handed, including John Racener (10th), 2005 Main Event winner Joe Hachem (13th) and Robert Mizrachi (14th). 319 entries have been recorded and $169k will be up for the winner.
Elsewhere in the Rio, the $400 Colossus has started with already more than 4000 entrants in day 1A, and 113 remain in the $10k Event #56: 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em Championship, featuring Matt Berkey with the 3rd stack.
That’s it for today and see you tomorrow!
