WSOP Day 20 Digest

Two great tournaments ended yesterday!

35$10,000Dealers Choice 6-Handed🇺🇸 Adam Friedman$312,417
36$3,000No-Limit Hold’em Shootout🇺🇸 David Lambard$207,193

The Event #35 $10,000 Dealer’s Choice 6-Handed was the story of the incredible back-to-back champion Adam Friedman! Winning this exact same tournament last year, he enters the very small circle of the players able to successfuly defend their title.

David Lambard got the upper hand against a stacked final table at the #Event 36 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout. He won the final heads-up against the french pro and poker coach Johan “YoH ViraL” Guilbert. As a side note, beating ‘unknown’ players like Justin Bonomo, Alexandru Papazian or Andrew Lichtenberger is no small feat and a nice story to tell to your kids.

A lot of poker celebrities cashed in yesterday in those tournaments. Like a clockwork, they show their consistency. And speaking of consistency, with his 2nd place, Shaun Deeb should moves 31 spots up to the 8th place of the Player Of the Year race, after being the POY in 2018, what a monster!

WSOP Day 19 Digest

This was a pretty calm day but it required to be awake pretty late – after 3 AM this morning – to see the end of two events:

32$1,000Seniors No-Limit Hold’em🇺🇸 Howard Mash$662,594
38$ ONLINE No-Limit Hold’em Knockout Bounty🇺🇸 Upeshka “gomezhamburg” De Silva$98,263

Event #32: Seniors No-Limit Hold’em, which didn’t appear to be so big at first as limited to 50+ years old only, turned out to be a pretty massive one: 4th in total entries, and 3rd in total prize pool out of 33 completed events!

🇺🇸 Layne Flack20th$22,98832$1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em
🇺🇸 Barry Greenstein57th$10,12232$1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em

Two other events have reached the table final with very interesting line-ups!

Shaun Deeb, the reigning WSOP Player of the Year and currently 39th, leads the final table Event #35: $10,000 Dealers Choice 6-Handed. It is most likely that he will enter the top 10 of the race, and possibly reach 2nd place if he grabs the bracelet! They’re currently five left and Matt Glantz (WSOP records: 66 cashes, $3.1M in earnings) sits with the third stack.

Event #36: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout will resume today with a very stacked final table counting Andrew Lichtenberger, Justin Bonomo, and two well known French pros Johan Guilbert and Adrien Delmas.

Let’s hope for some beautiful action today!

Stephen Song entered the day with nearly half the chips in play at the beginning of Day 3. A huge advantage that he used to win his first bracelet even if it was not as easy as imagined, Ryan Laplante and Scot Masters fighting their best to win the tournament as well.

Stephen Song “It’s surreal. I don’t even know. The money’s insane. WSOP summer is where you can actually make life-changing money. It’s pretty unreal.”
