WSOP roundup

Event #47: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em: Final Report

After a very long grind of a tournament, Matt O’Donnell can be officially welcomed to the ranks of WSOP bracelet winners.

Event #49: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better: Final Report

PTP favorite, the Prince of Docness made the final table, but fell by the wayside in 7th place as Young Ji went on to claim the PLO8 bracelet.

Event #50: $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship: Final Report

Ben Yu took down the Limit Championship title, defeating Jesse Martin in heads-up play.

Event #51: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed: Updates

The $3k 6-Max NLHE tournament will need an extra day to crown a champion, with Justin Liberto and Seamus Cahill returning to finish their heads-up duel on Sunday.

Event #52: $1,500 Dealers Choice: Final Report

The Dealer’s Choice champion was an unlikely winner for two reasons. First, Carol Fuchs is a woman (just the 21st female to win an open event at the WSOP), and second, she is an amateur player. Fuchs was the first female champion of 2015.

Event #53: $10,000/$1,000 Ladies No-Limit Hold’em Championship: Updates

The Ladies Championship is not the draw it once was, but the 10 women who are returning to the Rio on Sunday probably don’t care, considering the winner will still receive a hefty $153,876 payday.

Event #54: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship: Updates

The PLO Championship is down to 21 players, with several big names still in the hunt. Jason Mercier, Shaun Deeb, Dan Smith, Triple Crown winner David Kitai, and Simon “Aces” Trumper among them.

Event #55: $1,500 Draftkings 50/50 No-Limit Hold’em: Updates

One of the more intriguing formats in WSOP history is down to just 211 players after a full day of play. All of these players are guaranteed at least $1,500, but the winner is going to take home over $200k.

Event #56: $5,000 Turbo No-Limit Hold’em: Updates

Turbos gunna turbo, as 400 of the 454 entrants were eliminated on Day 1.

Starting Today:

Event #57: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Event #58: $111,111 High Roller for ONE DROP
