And still MORE WSOP pokery goodness

Sadly, my blogging efforts as of late have been dismal failures. Eagles conventions, concerts, summer, family, friends, and well... you name it, it has all taken a seat closer to the front of the bus than has my blogging. I am sorry. But sometimes kidlets, "dems da berries." SOOOO, picking up where I left off:

Event #28: $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha has crowned its champion and awarded the $315,311 top prize to Miguel Proulx. Congratulations on the win! And I see now that blogger buddy SHAMUS covered that one. I enjoyed reading through your writing as always.

Event #29: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship has completed too, and awarded Matt Keikoan a 2nd WSOP bracelet. Way to go! Some other names I'm happy see make the money on this one, Brock Parker, Michael Mizrachi, and David Chiu.

Event #30: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em has completed and the $581,851 top prize and bracelet has been awarded to Mike Ellis. Congratulations on wading through the enormous field!

Event #31: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. awarded $256,820 to Konstantin Puchkov. Congratulations on your new shiny WSOP bracelet!

Event #32: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed has crowned a champion and awarded a first bracelet to Jeffrey Papola. To get there he outlasted 567 players, and then ultimately came to heads up play with Men Nguyen, who certainly made him work for it. Congrats to him!

Event #33: $2,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em/Omaha was awarded to Jose-Luis Velador. He lays claim to $260,517 and the WSOP bracelet. Congratulations.

Event #34: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em Championship has ended as well and unfortunately I can't say that my good friend Vince got to the winner's circle. But he's returned from Vegas with a story or two to tell though. On the other hand a winner ultimately emerged in Harold Angle. He pockets the bling and $487,994 for outlasting the 3,142 players. Congratulations.

Event #35: $10,000 Heads Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship found its winner in Ayaz Mahmood. Congratulations to him. It's also good to see lovely lady Vanessa Rousso finishing in the #5 spot! : )

Event #36: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em has its champion in Scott Montgomery with $481,760 to go with his bracelet. Congratulations.

Event #37: $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. I was really excited about this one. And when the dust settled the bracelet and the $329,840 went to one of my all time favorite poker players, Phil Ivey! Big congratulations!

Event #38: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship has awarded the top prize of $627,214 to Valdemar Kwaysser. Congratulations on a great payday.
Event #39: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout finally awarded the $381,922 to Steven Kelly. Congratulations.
