Blow ups aside, Hellmuth is playing great this WSOP and has a 2nd chance this series at bracelet number 12, with just 18 left in the $10k Stud-8 Event.
I have to say that I’m impressed that yesterday saw three different events award bracelets. I expected more than one of the events to be impacted by the hard stop, but the players played more loosely than I gave them credit for and we finished out the tournaments that were scheduled to be done. So with that, there will only be 4 tournaments in action today, which marks the smallest number of tourney’s in action at the Rio since…well… I think day 1.

One tournament wrapped up as the final table of Event #24, the $5,000 NLHE Shootout came to a close. A bracelet was awarded to Mark Radoja who collected 436,568 reasons to be happy. I collected a reason to yawn. It was a mostly uninteresting story about some guy who plays the WSOP every year since 2007, but had his biggest score ever in this thing, winning his first career bracelet, yadda yadda yadda. Last year, he finished 3rd in the $5k NLHE 6-max event for more than $200k, but he finally climbed the mountain to poker greatness. Again…yawn.
So here’s what’s going on and what I think is interesting in the events that will transpire today: Read more…
