WSOP roundup

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

The final preliminary bracelet of the 2015 WSOP went to Connor Berkowitz. The New Jersey native took down the Lucky 7’s tournament for a nearly half million dollar payday.

Event #68: WSOP Main Event Day 1b: Updates

Nearly 1,000 more players registered for Day 1b of the 2015 WSOP Main Event on Monday, 1,716 to put an exact number on it, than Day 1a, which drew 771 entrants. Unfortunately the year over year percentage drop was far steeper on Day 1b, as the 204 WSOP drew 2,144 entrants. It’s going to take a monster turnout on Tuesday to keep the WSOP Main Attendance from being a major disappointment.

Last year Day 1c was the biggest field in WSOP history at 3,768. With lesser turnouts on Day 1a and 1b, this year’s Day 1c will have to eclipse 4,000 entries to equal last year’s total.

Starting Today:

The Main Event! Day 1c.

WSOP Quick Hitters

Las Vegas is known for creating a lot of unnatural phenomena from pirate ship battles to indoor gondola rides through the canals of Venice. Still, indoor rain is not one of the Rio’s amenities, but thanks to some freak weather, that’s precisely what occurred during the WSOP Main Event yesterday.

Reigning WSOP Player of the Year George Danzer handled the shuffle up and deal call on Monday.

Non-WSOP Quick Hitters

New Jersey online gambling sites were the victim of DDOS attacks over the holiday weekend.

WPT500 at Aria is in the books and the tournament once again blew through its guarantee. After a five-way deal at the final table, Craig Varnell went on to win the tournament and $330,000.
