Event #69: Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Mixed game grinder Jermaine Reid became the winner of the $1,500 event late in the night and pocketed $113,459. Until then, the player did not have 5 figures despite having a few dozens cashes on his profile so this win is a pretty big deal for the player.

“It means a lot. It is something I set out to do this year,” Reid told after winning. “I really didn’t think I would accomplish it. It was just a stretch goal. So I’m very, very surprised I actually got it. It feels amazing. The money is irrelevant. The bracelet is everything.”

Jermaine managed to beat a high level final table and denied several bracelet holders from the win, including John Monnette (4th), Carol Fuchs (6th) and John Racener (8th).

Event #67: MAIN EVENT No-Limit Hold’em World Championship

We lost more than two thirds of the field yesterday as we went from 1,000 players to now 292. All the remaining players will now win $33,900 or more.

In the lead is the Spanish Ramon Colillas with 5M chips. Ramon is the winner of the $25k PSPC PokerStars Players Championship where he won a cute $5,1M. The only way to beat this exceptional score for him is by winning the tournament this year.

Chance with the big stack

Now cruising in the tournament is Stephen Chidwick with the 4th stack and 4,3M. Also worth noting are Chance Kornuth (18th, 2,7M), Jason Koon (95th, 1,3M), 2016 Main Event winner Qui Nguyen (110th, 1,1M), Nick Petrangelo (137th, 966k), Chris Moneymaker (232nd, 621k), Matt Berkey (237th, 621k) and Marle Spragg (282nd, 302k).
