GoLeafsGoEh, JJProdigy Make Final 39 of WSOP Colossus

2

The World Series of Poker Colossus, which attracted over 22,000 entrants is, within a matter of days, already down to just 39. Nine PocketFivers are among the group and everyone is trailing the chip-leading stack of Raymond Henson, who has 7.4 million, 600,000 more than the next closest person.

Hensen reclaimed the chip lead late in the day on Monday after busting a player with Broadway. His opponent, Richard Mikesell, had top two pair and exited stage right from the Colossus.

Mike GoLeafsGoEh also (pictured) spent the final moments of Monday’s action chipping up. He bet 360,000 on a board showing 3-2-Q-K-7, got a call, and showed A-K to win the pot. He ended the day in 22nd place with a stack of 2.2 million and is one of three Canadians left.

Then there’s JJProdigy, aka Josh Field (pictured). The California resident who went down in infamy after dominating the online poker world while underage, is making waves in the Colossus. Field put the moves on Scott Gould on Monday, shoving all-in on a board of 7-10-K-3-4 with three spades. His opponent tanked and eventually called with 10-8, dominated by Field’s set of kings. Field is in 31st place at 1.8 million in chips entering Tuesday’s 2:00pm PT restart.

Dan KingDan O’Brien was the chip leader of the Colossus when this author checked in on Monday night. However, O’Brien was relegated to the rails after a series of hands, including one where his pocket kings could not withstand pocket tens. The money went in pre-flop, but O’Brien’s opponent rivered a flush.
