Event #16 - $2,000 Omaha Hi/Lo Split


Try as they might, they were unable to get down to a final table and had to stop play with two tables of nine remaining. 553 players started two days ago and with 169 still remaining coming into day two, it was expected to be a long day, and it was. Some notable players made the money including Max Pescatori, David Chiu, James Van Alstyne, John Cernuto, John Juanda, Kristy Gazes, and Josh Arieh. Soheil Shamseddin enters the final day as the chip leader with 243,000 in chips but has big name professionals Scott Clements and Ted Forrest nipping at his heels.

Event #17 - $1,500 NLHE Shootout

In one of the few two day events at the WSOP this year, 1,000 players started the day and by the time action ended we were down to our final table. The last table of the Shootout did not end until nearly 7 in the morning when Kyle Bowker topped Travis Rosenberry for the 10th and final spot at the final table. Each player will start with the same number of chips, so it could make for another long and exciting day as they are playing for the $335,565 first place prize. The final table players and their seating assignments are as follows:

Seat 1: Casey Coleman (Kingston, Ontario, Canada)
Seat 2: Matthew Giannetti (Las Vegas, Nevada)

Seat 4: Rory Monahan (Carbondale, Illinois)
Seat 5: Kyle Bowker (Walton, New York)
Seat 6: John Strzemp III (Las Vegas, Nevada)
Seat 7: Mike Schwartz (Encino, California)

Seat 9: Jason Young (Suffern, New York)
Seat 10: Alexander Triner (Rockville, Maryland)

Event #18 - $5,000 With Rebuys No Limit Deuce to Seven Draw

The last event of the day brought out all the stars of poker. In what will likely be the smallest field of the WSOP, only 85 players bought into this event and 39 were left standing when play concluded. At $5,000 a pop, an amazing 272 rebuys and add ons were made bringing the prize pool to over 1.7 million dollars with first place receiving $537,862. Young phenom Tom Dwan leads the way but has plenty of savvy veterans eyeing his stack. Among the notables still remaining are Mike Matusow, Tom Schneider, Doyle Brunson, Michael Binger, Phil Ivey, Jeffrey Lisandro, Michael Mizrachi, Erick Lindgren, Eli Elezra, Carlos Mortenson, Barry Greenstein, Howard Lederer, and Tony G.

Play will resume at 3 p.m. local time.
