WSOP 2010 Event #s 2 - 10+

Yes, I'm very far behind in my recap of the 2010 WSOP... but rather than belabor the point let's get on with it shall we!?!

BIG Congratulations to Michael Mizrachi on winning the Poker Player's Championship (Event #2) at this year's World Series of Poker!  He bested the 116 players who ponied up the whopping $50,000 entry, to take home a cool little WSOP bracelet and not to mention the $1,559,046 top prize!  Fantastic effort!

In Event #3 $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em the winner is Aadam Daya taking home the $625,872 top prize and the WSOP bling!  It took 4 grueling days of grinding through the 4,345 player field!  He is to be commended... congratulations!

In Event #4 $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better the new bracelet winner and pocketer of $237,140 is Michael Chow.  Congratulations!

In Event #5 $1,500 No-limit Hold'em, we have Praz Bansi coming up with the bracelet and $515,501 for the top spot.  He too waded through an enormous field of players (2,092) to claim the title!

The 358 player field in Event #6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout was also reduced to the last man standing and we find Joshua Tieman taking home the bracelet and $441,692!  Congratulations to him!

Peter Gelencser lays claim to the bracelet and $180,730 in Event #7: $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball.  Congratulations!

Event #8 $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em is still underway with only 25 of the original starting 2,341 players.  One heavy notable still in the thick of it... Phil Hellmuth.  You just gotta love to hate the guy!  He is entertaining though!

Event #9 $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em now has only 65 players remaining from the original 650.  Top prize in this one is $197,470.  Stay tuned.

When I pulled up the page for Event #10 $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship, I thought I'd misclicked and checked myself again!  But low and behold, there is Michael Mizrachi's name AGAIN.  No, it ain't over but he is currently on top of the chip counts with 88 of the 150 starters still remaining.  But this won't be easy and that war is probably FAR from over with the likes of Doyle Brunson, Men Nguyen, Nick Schulman, Brandon Adams, Greg Mueller, and John DAgostino also appearing in the Top 25.

Scheduled to get underway today, June 4th are Event #11: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em, Event #12: $1,500 Limit Hold’em, and Event #13: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em.  Lots of pokery goodness still to come in this year's WSOP.  Stay tuned, and please continue to follow along with the great writers of,
