WSOP roundup

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

After 4,554 eliminations German poker player Paul Hoefer was the last man standing in the Little One for One Drop tournament. Hoefer walks away with his first gold bracelet and one of the bigger paydays of the 2015 WSOP, $645,969.

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

Despite being extremely short-stacked Viteslav Pesta decided it was best to get a good night’s sleep before finishing his heads-up duel with Jack Duong for the Bounty title. The extra rest didn’t help, as Duong finished off Pesta on Saturday.

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

Poker pro Andrew Barber picked up his first WSOP bracelet in the $10k HORSE event, and all he had to do was beat one of the tougher final tables you’ll ever come across. In addition to Barber the final eight included Joe Hachem, Jared Bleznick, Scotty Nguyen and Frank Kassela.

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

This tournament began Thursday on, and after a day off Anthony Spinella dispatched the other five finalists at the Rio to claim his first WSOP bracelet. The tournament took just 8 hours of online play and just 2:30 of live play to crown a champion, undoubtedly a record for the fastest bracelet event in WSOP history.

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

With just three players remaining Daniel Idema is on the hunt for bracelet #2 of 2015. Idema is also becoming a Player of the Year candidate, as he now has three final tables and four cashes at the 2015 WSOP.

Event #67: $10,000 Dealers Choice Championship: Updates

105 players decided to part with the $10k buy-in to partake in the Dealer’s Choice tournament. The tournament is now down to 12 very tough customers including David Benyamine, David Chiu, Paul Volpe, Rep Porter, and Jeff Madsen.

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

The lower price point of the Lucky 7’s tourney didn’t have the same appeal as the $500 buy-in Colossus earlier in the series, as a fairly disappointing turnout of 4,442 players registered for the event. There are currently 61 remaining, including chip leader Rocco Palumbo.

WSOP Quick Hitters

WSOP circuit schedule released.

Brian Rast pocketed the $7.5 million first place prize in the $500k buy-in Aria Super High Roller Bowl tournament.

Online Poker Report calls the online bracelet event a success, a hint at the future of poker.

Non-WSOP Quick Hitters

Melanie Weisner and Dylan Wilkerson called out for swapping action in single table WSOP tournaments. This one will probably get a lot worse (more names and more allegations) before it’s resolved, considering some poker pros don’t seem to understand the issue with swapping significant percentages in a STT.
