Event #67: MAIN EVENT No-Limit Hold’em World Championship
The bubble popped a few minutes ago in the Main Event, leaving us with 1000 players making the money all securing a $15k prize.
After shoving with aces preflop, Kevin Campbell is our heartbroken bubble boy this year, he got cracked by the A9 of Chris Alafogiannis who made trips of the river.
Another brutal hand also happened a few hours ago:
Jessica Cai will return for day 4 today with the chip lead and a stack close to 1,8M. Chris Moneymaker briefly took the chip lead today and still maintained one of the most healthy stack with 1,4M, currently sitting in 9th place.
A great day for Stephen Chidwick who entered the top 200 and is now 16th (1,2M). Also in great position are Nick Petrangelo (53rd, 860k), Chance Kornuth (66th, 780k), JJ Liu (71st, 765k), Matt Glantz (116th, 580k), Jason Koon (118th, 574k) and Mike Matusow (144th, 510k).
Event #68: LITTLE ONE FOR ONE DROP No-Limit Hold’em
310 players are still fighting in the $1,111 event and $396,445 will be awarded to the winner. Marouane Lamharzi Alaoui is the chipleader at this point, followed by Sorel Mizzi (4th), Joseph Cheong (9th) and Scott Ball (16th).
Event #69: Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better
In the $1,500 event 372 players took the starting line and 20 are left, battling for a $113,459 top prize. Esther Taylor-Brady is currently chip leading, ahead of John Monnette looking for a fifth bracelet. John Racener (4th) and Carol Fuchs (6th) are also eying on a new final table.
Have a great day at the tables!
