Hey High Rollers, July 12th, 2013just thought I’d provide a bunch of tidbits from the World Series of Poker…how quickly we’ve dropped to be, low 900 players left…remember 6352 started….today is Day 3, just two players have climbed above the million chip mark. Hope you enjoy this post…comments are welcome:
891 remain in the 44th annual World Series of Poker. Two players have cracked the million chip mark; Dick Van Luijk & Max Steinberg.
Winner of the Millionaire Maker, Canadian Benny Chen sits in top 20 in chips with 600,000. WSOPE main event champion Annette Oberstad has 500,000. Doyle Brunson is 38th in chips w/ 420,000….Greg Mueller 39th w/ 405,000.
NOTE: As a 15 year old, Annette Oberstad won an online tournament without ever looking at her hole cards (until the final hand, she glanced at her cards to see what she was about to in the tournament with). Oberstad had taped a piece of paper on her computer monitor to cover her hole cards. She played the entire tourney based on what her opponents were doing; their stack sizes, bet sizing, calling patterns etc. Can you say phenom?
My man, Phil Hellmuth has been eliminated!
Found this post today from facebook friend Pamela Brunson:
I just got home. Haven’t checked the WSOP.com updates yet. Todd said he texted Dad 10 minutes ago and he had 410,000 in chips!!!! GO DAD GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(No kidding, it would only be the greatest feat in WOP history, his 3rd ME championship at 79? Way better than Stuey Ungar’s comeback win in 1997.)
Compelling human interest story:
Laura Green & Scott Born, newlyweds spending their honeymoon in Vegas playing the series and they spent most of the day at the same table…Wife’s got 41,000 hubby’s got 38,000. Good Luck.
Two former world champs were busted on Day 2C; Joe Hachem and Jamie Gold. Daniel Negreanu busted as well. Soccer star Gerard Pique and NHL goaltender Roberto Luongo were eliminated…as were Jennifer Harman, Barbara Enright and Gus Hansen.
Mark Kroon was your Day chip leader….if you recognize the name, that’s because he was also the Day 1 Chip Leader. Last player to hold the chip lead after Day 1 and Day 2? Ben Lamb, two years ago. Kroon has 507,000, the only player above the half-million chip mark. Kroon, 52, owns a bar in Madison, Wisconsin and is the host of then Man Up Poker Show…and…he is known as ‘PokerHo’ online, formerly a sponsored pro at Ultimate Bet….good friends with Phil Hellmuth.
Greg Merson, your defending champion, is in the top 50 right now, with 275,000 chips. In perspective, 275,000 represents a Big Blind at the start of final table play last year. LONG WAY to go.
