WSOP roundup

Event #59: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em: Final Report

Needing an extra day to complete, and with just four players returning, it was Alex Lindop who prevailed in the final $1,500 NLHE event. Lindop captured the UK’s second bracelet of the 2015 WSOP and the country’s 33rd overall. Good enough for 3rd place behind the US and Canada.

Event #61: $1,111 The Little One for One Drop: Updates

And then there were 14. The Little One for One Drop began with well over 4,000 players on Tuesday and sometime on Friday one of the 14 remaining, relatively unknown, players will be smiling for a picture while holding a couple of cards and a new gold bracelet.

Event #62: $1,500 Bounty No-Limit Hold’em: Updates

Don’t be surprised if the Bounty tournament needs an extra day to complete. 34 players remain heading into Day 3 of the tournament.

Event #63: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E Championship: Updates

20 highly skilled poker players will be returning to the Rio to battle for the prestigious $10k HORSE title. Of the remaining players, there are 11 bracelet winners (with a total of 23 bracelets between them), plus Mark Gregorich, Don Zewin, Matt Glantz, Jared Bleznick, and Phillip Hui.

Event #64: WSOP.com Online No-Limit Hold’em: Updates

The first ever online bracelet tournament (the final table will be played live at the Rio on July 4) went off without a hitch on Thursday. 905 players registered for the tournament, which easily set the record for the largest online poker prize-pool in a regulated U.S. market.

Event #65: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better: Updates

125 of the 547 registered players will return for Day 2 of the Stud 8 or better tournament.

Starting Today:

Event #67: $10,000 Dealers Choice Championship

Event #66: $777 LUCKY SEVENS No-Limit Hold’em

WSOP Quick Hitters

One of the most intriguing parts of the online bracelet tournament were the live updates at WSOP.com. Unlike typical tournament reporting, where the reporter offers up a summary of the action, the online element allowed WSOP.com to embed each hand into the reporting. Check it out here.

Alex Weldon explains why Bounty tournaments are the best way to flatten a payout structure.

The $500,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl got underway at Aria on Thursday. 27 of the original 43 entrants survived and will return for Day 2 on Friday. Among the departed: Phil Ivey, Ike Haxton, Doug Polk, Jason Mercier, and Dan Smith. Among the living: Scott Seiver, Daniel Negreanu, Dan Colman, Ben Lamb, and chip leader David Peters.

Another SHRB survivor was businessman Bill Klein, who has an interesting plan for any money he wins. Spoiler Alert: He’s donating it.

A new thread on 2+2 has users suggesting potential ways for sites to eliminate data-mining.
