The 45th Annual World Series of Poker Main Event began yesterday, Saturday the 5th, with the kick off-off Day 1A Event# 65A which saw an impressive, albeit modest, field of 771 players that included some of the WSOP’s best players. Some of these best players and Main Event Champions from past years who pushed through Day 1A were Tom McEvoy, Johnny Chan, Chris Moneymaker, Greg Merson, and Ryan Riess. That’s some serious competition. But, we’ve only just begun.
Mean while “The Little One for One Drop” is still going on while other events have been completed. Here are the most recent results:
Jackduyph Duong leads Event #62: The $1,111 Little One for One Drop. We wish Duong the best of luck starting today as the other eight of this final nine table, without a doubt, are all going to try to knock him out.
Bryn Kenney emerged victorious in Event #63: $1,500 Six-Handed 10-Game Mix to win his first gold bracelet and walk away with a hefty $153,220 in prize money after defeating Jan Suchanek who takes second place and $94,618.
Pat Walsh conquered Event #64: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship besting a field of 418 entrants. Walsh won his first bracelet and a fat first-place prize of $923,379 after defeating Javed Abrahams with the second place prize of a measly $570,284 (Yeah right – I’ll take that measly sum anytime).
Day 1B of the Main Event is now under way and we’ll sign off for now but will bring you all the action as we can… so stay tuned and we wish all players the best of luck!!!
