Gale comes up short at WSOPE. Delaware’s online poker industry posts its worst month to date. Jason Chaffetz wants to be the next Speaker of the House. And more.
Recap of WSOP Europe Day 3
John Gale’s remarkable run in Event #2 came to an end with a runner up finish to Dietrich Fast. Gale, a cancer survivor, who won a bracelet at the 2015 WSOP in Las Vegas, would have been one of the feel good stories of the year in poker.
Event #3 is down to just two players and it’s Richard Gryko and Mike Leah battling for the bracelet and the six-figure score the winner will leave Berlin with.
Partway through Day 12 of the Monster Stack tournament there are just 49 players still in contention. Among the players still in the hunt are Simon Deadman, Andy Black, Niall Farrell, and Adrian Apmann.
101 players registered for Event #5, a €2,200 8-Game Mix tournament.
