WSOP 2009 events 20 & 21 winners, updates 22-27

The winner of Event 20 - $1,500 Pot Limit Hold'em, is John-Paul Kelly. He is the last man standing of the 633 who began the event. He takes home $194,434 and the WSOP bracelet. Congratulations to him. There were hopes of Erik Seidel adding to his bracelet collection in this event, when he made the final table, but he had to settle for 7th place.

Event 21 - $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. has come to an end and we find Zac Fellows at the top of the heap of the 452 players who began the 3 day event. He takes home $311,899. Congratulations! I had mentioned earlier that a few notable pros remained, but the closest to the end was Gavin Smith who tapped out in 10th place.

In Event 22 - $1,500 No Limit Hold'em Shootout only 10 players remain to finish things out today. It took around 11 hours to play down from the 100 players which began Day 2 (1,000 started us off on day one. Top prize of $313,673 and the WSOP bracelet awaits one of them.

Event 23 - $10,000 World Championship No Limit Deuce to Seven Draw has ended day 2 and will return for the finale today. 10 players remain, currently Vince Musso is in the chip lead. Some notable names include, Nick Schulman, David Benyamine, Michael Biner, Ville Wahlbeck (again), Roland De Wolfe and John Juanda.

Day 1 of Event 24 - $1,500 No Limit Hold'em came to a close with 270 players remaining of the 2,506 who started off. All of those remaining will get paid! I guess that might help some of them get some sleep. : )

Event 25 - $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo 8-or-better started Day 1 off with 376 players and we are down to 155 that will begin Day 2. HEY NOW!!! Wait there a minute folks but do my eyes deceive me? Is that none other than the bwop the Black Widow of Poker herself still sitting strong in this event? SWEET! Give 'em hell!!!

Two events will get started today, Event 26 - $1,500 Limit Hold'em and Event 27 - $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo 8-or-better. There still lots more action to come, hope you're all enjoying the events as they unfold. Let the folks over at know you appreciate the job they're doing!
