WSOP 2010 Action continues Event #s 2 thru 7

And the action at the WSOP continues.  Event #2 the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship is down to the final 8 players!  On top of the chip counts is Robert Mizrachi with 3,125,000.  Also still in the hunt are David Baker, John Juanda, Mikael Thuritz, Michael Mizrachi, Vladimir Schmelev, Daniel Alaei, and David Oppenheim.  As I said before, I can't wait to see this one play out...

Heading into Day 3 of Event #3 $1,000 NLHE, there are only 41 of the starting 4345 players left.  Congrats to them all, thy've all made the money!  Can't say I'm overly excited about any of the names which remain... I'm sure they're all great people... just not "my" people!  : P  Top spot of $625,872 awaits one of them at any rate.

In Event #4 $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better, there remain 26 of the initial 818 starters.  Again, everyone left now, is in the money...  Top spot payout $237,140 and some little bracelet of a trinket.  : )  A quick look at the players remaining and I see Ylon Schwartz, Jeff Madsen, and Huck Seed.  And oh NOOOOOOs where are you???!!! Say it ain't so BWoP!!! 

In Event #5 $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 223 players remain of the 2,099 who began.  Only 216 of those will be walking away with anything at all... with the top spot at $515,501.

Event #6 $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout is just getting going with a total of 122 players.  Too early to get excited about anyone in this one but a quick look at the top 10 in chip counts, and you see Chris Ferguson on top, with Jeffrey Lisandro, Daniel Negreanu, Todd Brunson, Justin Bonomo, and Johnny "frickin" Chan to do a little name dropping!  Good luck/skill guys!

Event #7 $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball will commence later tonight at 5pm Vegas time baby!

I flamed out in level 7 of Day 1. Never really got much going. Got rivered for scoops (ended up chopping) twice when I had a wheel. Meh :-(
