Day 21 recap
No. 32: $1.5K No-Limit Hold’em: Canadians went wild in this one, taking three of the top four spots. Kirk Caldwell took down the top prize of $668K. Adam Geyer, a former FTOPS main event champion on Full Tilt, finished 13th.
No. 33: $10K Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Championship:There were lots of possibilities for big names to add to their career bracelet totals. However, Eric Rodawig foiled them all and took down the win and $442K. Phil Hellmuth just missed his 12th bracelet, finishing second. PTP member Chris “indariva” Tryba finished on the right side of the money bubble in 16th. Other notables included main event runner up John Racener (third), Ted Forrest (fourth), David Benyamine (fifth), Phil Laak (12th) and Erik Seidel (13th).
No. 34: $1K No-Limit Hold’em: There’s just 27 left after more than 3,000 started two days ago. Among those left is Scott Shelley, a former WSOP Europe winner.
No. 35: $5K Pot-Limit Omaha / Six Handed:Almost all of the usual suspects for larger buy-in events were in this one, as 507 started. The top three in chips are a star-studded cast: Vanessa Selbst, Erick Lindgren and Shaun Deeb.
