The plan for Day 4 was to play down to 8 players from the 24 that started the day. However, only 8 players remained in less than four levels of play, so WSOP crew decided to continue until there were 6 players left instead, which took about 1 hour. Here are the 6 remaining players of the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event:
Event #8: €25,600 High Roller, the final bracelet event at the 2013 WSOPE in Paris, kicked off yesterday and attracted 75 entrants. The first day lasted for six levels and approximately 62 players made it through the day. Canada's Sorel Mizzi will be leading the way with 268,800 chips to the second day, and not far behind are big names such as Scott Seiver (248,200), Antonio Esfandiari (229,000) and Phil Ivey (182,800)
The cards will be back in the air at 1.00 PM local time and registration will remain open for the first 5 levels, so hopefully Phil Hellmuth will join in on the action and take a shot at bracelet number 14!
Another action-packed day of poker is in the books at the 2013 WSOPE Main Event in Paris, and now there are only 24 players left with the chance of taking down the the first prize of €1,000,000 and the coveted gold bracelet! Adrian Mateos from Spain bagged up the largest stack (1,066,000) at the end of Day 3 and he's closely followed by Danny Steinberg (1,009,000), whose identical twin brother, Max Steinberg, won a bracelet at the 2012 WSOP.
On Friday, the final table of Event #5: €2,200 No Limit Hold'em began with 7 players and Erik Seidel was the chip leader. The American poker legend was looking to win his 9th WSOP bracelet and got the best possible start as he eliminated Max Greenword and Mike Watson within the first 15 hands.
On Thursday, Darko Stojanovic denied American poker pro Dan O'Brien his first bracelet, again, in Event #3: €5,300 Mixed Max. In the course of 53 hands, Stojanovic from France defeated the very experienced tournament player Dan O'Brien. O'Brien enjoyed a 3-1 chip when the cards were in the air, but the Stojanovic played very well and doubled up already in the second hand of the match. Stojanovic then dominated play until O'Brien needed a double up to stay in the game...
Another 5 players entered the second day of Event #3: €5,300 Mixed Max No-Limit Hold'em and brought the total field size to 140, which means that the event has a prize pool of €672,000!
Now, there are only 16 players left (all guaranteed €14,905 each) after two days of play and Noah Schwartz is the chip leader with 262,000 (109 big blinds) heading into Day 3. Nine-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Ivey also made it through to Day 3 with 90,500 chips, so he has a decent chance of winning a 10th gold bracelet!
Event #2: €1,100 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry saw 659 entries and the remaining 9 players will return to play later on today and battle it out at the final table - where a first prize of €129,700 and a WSOP gold bracelet are at stake!
On Saturday, the first WSOP gold bracelet of the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe (played in Paris) was awarded. Jackie Glazier bested a field of 65 players (included EPT Winner Liv Boeree, WSOP bracelet winner Allyn Jaffrey Schulman, and a few other poker stars) over the course of two days in Event #1: €1,100 Ladies Event to claim the victory, her first WSOP gold bracelet and a sweet €21,850.
Another 7 WSOP gold bracelets will be awarded at the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe before October 26th. We will do our outmost to write about all the bracelet winners and other notable happenings, so make sure to check out our news section every day!
On Tuesday, WSOP announced the 2013 WSOP Europe schedule. The 7th Annual WSOPE offers seven gold bracelet events and will run October 12 to October 25, 2013 in Paris, France. The highlights of the tournament will be a brand new €25,000+€600 No Limit Hold'em High Roller event and, of course, the main event. Last year the main event was played in Cannes and Phil Hellmuth bested a field of 420 players and laid hands on $1.3 million and his 13th bracelet! The organisers of the tournament believe that this year's main event will attract more players thanks to the move to Paris.
"New tournament dates and 12 million Parisians have us aiming for the largest Main Event in Europe," said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. "Baguettes and Bracelets; Champagne and Cash; we think is a winning recipe for the 2013 WSOP Europe."
