Event #4: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout
Nick Petrangelo has had a pretty good year: He’s already got a million dollars in live tourney earnings, and this is his fifth six-figure score of 2015. He defeated Jason Les, who was a part of the team of pros that recently played the poker computer Claudico. Bracelet winners Brian Lemke, Leo Wolpert and Loni Harwood were the first three players eliminated at the final table, while James Woods run came to an end in seventh place.
The COLOSSUS $565 No-Limit Hold’em
Pros who have made it through to day two of the biggest live tournament ever held include Greg Raymer, Vanessa Rousso, David ‘Doc’ Sands, John Racener and Felix Stephenson. The WSOP still doesn’t know how many players entered or advanced, but it appears there were more than 20,000 entries.
