The two tournaments affected by the hard stops yesterday completed in relatively short time, and within about an hour of each other.  Fabrice Soulier polished off Shawn Buchanan (who came into the day with just 4 big bets) in just a few hands to claim the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship bracelet and collect $609,130 for the win.  And in the $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em, Mikhail Lakhitov started out on fire, and blitz-Krieged his way through his final 4 opponents, knocking out all but one of them.  Lakhitov scored his first career bracelet as well and won $749,610 in the process.

One other tournament complete yesterday as well as Mitch Schock completed the quest for his first WSOP Gold Bracelet and winning the $310,225 first place prize by winning the $2,500 Pot-Limit Hold’em/Omaha mixed event.  So, congratulations to Soulier, Lakhitov, and Schock.  Not exactly the names that make great headlines, but that happens in poker sometimes.
