When Event #3: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better was down to the final two players on Sunday afternoon, Jacob Dahl enjoyed a 2-1 chip advantage over Robert Mizrachi. The duel didn't begin well for Mizrachi, who wasn't just battling a tough opponent but also a cold.
George Danzer Wins Event #38: Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better
Amazing! German poker pro George Danzer has won two gold bracelets in two weeks at the 2014 World Series of Poker! After nabbing his fist ever bracelet in $10,000 Seven-Card Razz Championship, he bested a field of 134 players over three days of play in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better to win his second gold bracelet!
The second day of the International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT) is just around the corner! Day 1 of the tournament is being played online (February 3rd - May 26th) and live action begins May 31st in Wembley Stadium in London. The tournament (€1,000,000 guaranteed for the winner) is set to become the biggest live poker event ever and lots of pros have already confirmed their participation including WEMPLAYERS (amassadors) Tony G, Dave Ulliott, Marcel Luske, Robert Mizrachi, Like Schwartz, Sam Trickett and David Benyamine.
We will keep you updated from start to finish, so make sure to check our news section from May 31st onwards.
Another day has come to an end at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, and Patrick Kelly (1,750,000) is leading the tournament with only 59 remaining players. Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi failed to make it through the day, but his brother Robert survived with 783,000 chips. Joe Serock, who just like "The Grinder", was among the top 10 stack when day 3 started - continued playing well and will head into to Day 4 with 1,3 million chips (2nd place).
All the remaining players are guaranteed a minimum of $26,000, with the chance of taking down the first place prize of $1,859,000! Day 4 begins Friday at noon ET. We will be back with a final table recap on Monday morning!
The plan was to play 5 levels of 90-minutes but it wasn't necessary since the field had been narrowed down to only 18 players when 65-minutes remained of the final level. The new chip leader is Erik Cajelais, who has been in the top of the field since the very beginning of the tournament, with 1,190,000 chips. The Canadian poker pro finished runner-up in the 2007 Turks and Caicos Poker Classic and then finished 4th in the more recent Bay 101 Shooting Star Main Event, and now he has a fantastic chance of winning his first WPT title.
Yesterday the second day of WPT Merit Cyprus Classic was played. There were 132 players left when the day started and Chino Rheem had the lead, and Sam El Sayed was in 3rd place and Robert Mizrachi in 6th place ("The Grinder"'s brother).
Believe it or not but all of them did very, very well during Day 2 and are the in the top of the field with only 53 remaining players. Sam El Sayed, winner of of 2010 WPT Amneville, is the chip leader with 375,500 chips, closely followed by Erik Cajelais (371,500), Robert Mizrachi (365,000) and Chino Rheem (361,000). Many of the 53 players are relatively unknown players, so it's very nice to see some familiar faces in the top of the field.
The money bubble will burst when 36 players remain (28 - 36 place pay $8,070). The winner of the tournament will take home $287,784k and the runner-up gets $184,020.
There are only 10 players left in the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship and we are probably only a few moments away from the final table. Next player to leave the tournament gets $152,739 and the remaining players will fight for the really big money. In the lead is Robert Mizrachi with 3,125,000, closely followed by David Baker with 3,095,000.
Ladies and gentlemen, there is going to be an amazing final table (no matter who's going out next) in WSOP's most expensive tournament. Most remarkable about the remaining field of players has to be that both the brothers Robert and Michael Mizrachi are still in the tournament.
