Event #53: High Roller Pot-Limit Omaha (8-Handed)
What a comeback for Shaun Deeb! Starting the day in the 4th spot, he immediately doubled-up and managed to eliminate each of the four players at the table. It’s the second time Deeb wins this $25k high roller, and it’s now his fifth bracelet, making him jump 10 spots in the bracelets race with the 20th place, just behind Brian Rast who earned slightly more.
The player seems very serious in taking the top spot from Phil Hellmuth: “I’m gonna pass Phil eventually. It’s gonna take me a while but I’m gonna pass Phil. It’s gonna take me a decade or two but I’ll be there.”
Event #54: Nine Game Mix 6-Handed
Nicholas Julia won his first gold bracelet the $2,500 for $168,608. The player only had 3 lines on his Hendon Mob profile. Many familiar names were close but could not make it: Robert Mizrachi (6th – $23k), Mike Matusow (9th), Joe Hachem (14th) and John Racener (15th).
The $1,000 event #52: SENIORS No-Limit Hold’em Championship is still going strong with 16 players left. The fan favourites Eli Elizra and Barry Greenstein could not make the cut, leaving the chip lead to Christopher Cummings.
In the $10k Event #56: 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em Championship, we now have 19 players hoping to win the $721k prize. Matt Berkey has kept the 3rd stack over the day, and he will come back today with JJ Liu (14th) and Sam Grafton (16th).
