  1. Day 2cef of the WSOP Main Event saw strong performances from many big names as the field narrowed and some former champions enjoyed revisiting the WSOP felt on Day 2 of the Main Event for the first time in over two years. Moneymaker and Nguyen Among Former Winners to Star on Day 2cef Chris Moneymaker was one of the standout performers on Day 2cef as the 1,807 surviving players from Days 1c, 1e, and 1f combined to play out a dramatic day at the felt. Moneymaker, who now represents America’s Cardroom after over a decade at the felt wearing the PokerStars patch, had an incredible session of five two-hour levels, running up a huge stack of over half a million chips as he ended the day with 531,600 chips. Moneymaker's surge to the top of the chip counts came on two critical hands, both against the same opponent, Bryan Reyes. In the first, Moneymaker flopped a set of deuces against Reyes' pocket aces for a pure double. Then when holding the bigger stack, the pair clashed again. The cameras caught up with the action with the blinds at 800/1,600 (1,600 ante) after Moneymaker raised holding [poker card="as"][poker card="ad"] and Reyes put in a three-bet to 14,600 holding [poker card="kh"][poker card="kd"]. Moneymaker went with the in position four-bet to 40,500 and after a trip in the tank, Reyes made the call. The flop came [poker card="qs"][poker card="6d"][poker card="6c"] and Reyes checked it over to Moneymaker who put in a small bet of 25,000 and Reyes again made the call. The turn was the [poker card="5h"] and Reyes, checked again. This time Moneymaker slid out 65,000. With 200,000 left in his stack and after giving it a thought, Reyes moved all-in sending Moneymaker into the tank. An anguished Moneymaker stood and paced, concerned that Reyes flopped a set of queens. "It's no fun when the rabbit has the gun," he said. Then suddenly Moneymaker called and the cards were on their back. The river came [poker card="td"] and Reyes hit the rail and Moneymaker shot to the top of the chip counts. https://twitter.com/CMONEYMAKER/status/1458655860960411650?s=20 https://twitter.com/jeffplatt/status/1458665926191054848?s=20 Moneymaker may have made the top 10, but he doesn’t lead the Main Event at this stage. That honor is reserved for Conrad De Armas, who bagged up an incredible 744,000 chips, and that’s enough for the overall lead above Day 2abd conqueror Rameez Shahid (731,000). Hot on De Armas’ heels are several big names, with Adam Walton (673,100), Keyu Qu (664,900), Cameron Mitchell (642,000), and Daniel Lowery (625,200) the closest to De Armas’s stack. Behind them lurk dangerous top 10 chip stacks belonging to Matt Glantz (580,000), Artem Dedusha (577,100), Daniel Soltys (540,700), and the aforementioned Moneymaker, who won the 2003 WSOP Main Event 18 years ago. Outside the top dozen players, big names are armed to the teeth with raising chips, with Tyler Cornell (487,000), 2016 world champion Qui Nguyen (479,100), Jake Daniels (340,000), Robert Campbell (327,000), Robert Mizrachi (311,300) and Liv Boeree (289,500) all finishing inside the top 50 players on Day 2cef. Phil ‘The Poker Brat’ Hellmuth was able to make Day 3, but only with a short stack of 25,400 and will return to a battle to make the money, let alone push for another deep run this World Series. With 1,810 players taking to the felt on Day 2cef, just 915 players survived to Day 3, and they’ll join the 1,440 who made it through yesterday for a total field of 2,355 players who’ll play to the money tomorrow. With the World Series of Poker announcing that 1,000 places will be paid, here are the amounts paid out to the final nine players who reach the final table: WSOP 2021 Main Event Final Table Payouts: $8,000,000 $4,300,000 $3,000,000 $2,300,000 $1,800,000 $1,400,000 $1,225,000 $1,100,000 $1,000,000 While all those players will be looking towards Day 3 with determination to dominate the money bubble, plenty of big names on the rail will be looking at the next day’s play with only envy for what might have been. Vanessa Kade was an early bust-out, the popular player moving all-in on the river of a double-paired nine-high board with seven-four off-suit only to be called and eliminated by Jorge Ribeiro with [poker card="Jd"][poker card="Js"] in a pot worth over 100,000 chips. Sam Greenwood was another to crash out early, his turned trip tens losing out to Abbas Moradi’s trip tens, with Moradi’s king kicker ahead of Greenwood’s jack. Plenty of other legends of the felt joined Kade and Greenwood on the rail too, as 2019 WSOP Main Event winner Hossein Ensan, Dash Dudley, Paul Volpe, Brandon Cantu, Kevin MacPhee, 1998 world champion Scotty Nguyen, Brandon Adams, Erik Cajelais, David ‘ODB’ Baker, Nathan Gamble, 2018 Main Event runner-up Tony Miles, Mike Watson and 1988 Main Event runner-up Erik Seidel all busted on Day 2cef. WSOP 2021 Event #67 $10,000 Main Event Day 2cef Top 10 Chipcounts: Conrad De Armas - 744,000 Adam Walton - 673,100 Keyu Qu - 664,900 Cameron Mitchell - 642,000 Daniel Lowery - 625,600 Jorge Arriola - 594,200 Matt Glantz - 580,000 Artan Dedusha - 577,100 Aristeidis Moschonas - 555,400 Daniel Soltys - 540,700 Brian Rast Among Big Stacks on Day 1c of Little One for One Drop Event #68, the $1,111-entry Little One for One Drop, saw a dramatic Day 1c play out with Brian Rast near the top of the chip counts at the close of play. It was Oscar Alache (518,800) who grabbed the chip lead by the end of the third and final Day 1 flight, but Charles Lee (504,400), Thomas Eychenne (429,600), and Rast (459,000) will all hunt down the leader with hope and chips in equally large measure. Others to survive the Day 1c action included Jason Wheeler (210,000), Kevin Song (206,500), Lily Kiletto (140,000), and Asi Moshe (49,700), all of whom will be hopeful of running up a stack on Day 2 with which to attack the later levels. Some who fell by the wayside on Day 1c and therefore won’t have the chance to do so include David Liu, Arash Ghaneian, and James Adkins. WSOP 2021 Event #68 $1,111 Little One for One Drop Day 1c Top 10 Chipcounts: Oscar Alache - 518,800 Charles Lee - 504,400 Brian Rast - 459,500 Paul Lee - 443,700 Thomas Eychenne - 429,600 Idris Ambraisse - 379,400 Tomoya Matsumura - 376,800 Sunny Wong - 376,700 Peter Cross - 363,700 Liran Betito - 322,200 Deeb, Leng, Racener all Survive Day 1 of Event #69 A busy day at the felt on Day 1 of Event #69, the $1,500-entry Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better event, saw players such as five-time bracelet winner Shaun Deeb, John Racener and Ryan Leng all make the cut to escape a day of terrific action. With 372 entries in total, only just under half the field would make the cut, with players such as Benny Glaser, Brandon Shack-Harris, Joao Vieira, John Cernuto, David Williams, Gershon Distenfeld, Frank Kassela, and Scott Bohlman all failing to survive across a cut-throat session of poker. Others thrived, however, with Jermaine Reid the pick of them, piling up 208,500 chips by the close of play, followed in the counts by James Hoeppner (167,000) and David Martin (166,000) who ran in second and third in chips respectively. Shaun Deeb (143,000) ended the day in the top 10, along with Mike Watson (137,000) and Matt Savage, the legendary poker tournament director bagging 126,000 by the end of Day 1. Other big names hover ominously in Reid’s wake, with stars of the 2021 WSOP such as Ryan Leng (112,500), John Racener (109,500), and Brian Hastings (96,500) all chasing yet another deep run. Former bracelet winners Andrew Kelsall (40,000) and Ari Engel (32,000) have work to do but the skills to make up for a slower starting day when Day 2 kicks off tomorrow. WSOP 2021 Event #69 $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Top 10 Chipcounts: Jermaine Reid - 208,500 James Hoeppner - 167,000 David Martin - 166,000 John Hoang - 165,000 Susan Genard - 165,000 Eric Crain - 153,000 Chip Jett - 148,000 Shaun Deeb - 143,000 Mike Watson - 137,000 Matt Savage - 126,000 Michael Gagliano tweeted about a rather awkward situation in which standing up to take a stretch at the poker table led to laughter all round. https://twitter.com/Gags30poker/status/1458580622566248448 Alex Livingston may have made the Day 3 seat draw already, but don’t let that make you think he isn’t already thinking of the final table. Quite a lot. https://twitter.com/rumnchess/status/1458702536173441027 Finally, after winning the WSOP Main Event and seeing his name - well, his 2003 name - give birth to an ‘Effect’, Chris Moneymaker is just like the rest of us and gets excited about a double-up in the Main Event. Who wouldn’t? https://twitter.com/CMONEYMAKER/status/1458655860960411650
  2. The WSOP Main Event made the money on Day 3 as 2,362 players were whittled down to just 1,000 as the clock ticked down hand-for-hand in the final level of the day. With players such as Chris Moneymaker, Stephen Song and Chris Dowling all bagging million-plus stacks, it was a dramatic day of action at the Rio in Las Vegas. Bubble Bursts at the Last in Las Vegas The WSOP Main Event money bubble is a special atmosphere, the kind that has to be experienced to be believed, but for the 1,000 players who made the cut on Day 3, it was unforgettable. https://twitter.com/JohnnieVibes/status/1459078055117287424 The day began with the elimination of Phil Hellmuth in a hand that was brutal for the 1989 champion to take, his pocket jacks all-in and at risk against pocket eights only for his opponent to hit and the Poker Brat to depart. https://twitter.com/phil_hellmuth/status/1458880964881305600?s=20 Some time before the actual bubble, one of the most incredible hands of this or any WSOP Main Event took place live on the PokerGO stream at the feature table. Five players went to a flop of [poker card="6h"][poker card="4d"][poker card="4s"] and it was checked through, despite Ugur Ozgur Secilmis holding [poker card="6s"][poker card="6d"] and Chang Liu holding the nuts with [poker card="4h"][poker card="4c"]. the turn of [poker card="6c"] gave Secilmis quad sixes in an amazing turnaround, but despite this, all five checked again to the [poker card="5s"] river. On the river, Secilmis led for 55,000 and when Liu raised to 225,000, raised to set Liu all-in. The American made the call quickly, flipping over quads and expecting to scoop a vital double-up. Instead, as his Turkish opponent turned over pocket sixes for quads over quads, the table was stunned as Liu busted with quads in the WSOP Main Event. https://twitter.com/pokergo/status/1459040437788762113?s=21 As ever, the real drama came in the hands just before the bubble burst. One in particular saw the rollercoaster of emotions that players feel writ large as Sebastian Gahl was all-in and at risk with [poker card="Kc"][poker card="5c"] on a board showing [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Jc"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="2d"] against Randy Ohel’s [poker card="Qh"][poker card="Qs"]. On the dramatic river card of [poker card="Qc"], nearby players cheered in the mistaken belief that Ohel’s rivered set of queens was the winning hand without spotting that it was a club and therefore gave Gahl the flush. Once players were told of this, the Amazon Room was a chorus of boos instead. When it was over, the ‘bubble boy’ was Kevin Campbell, who was all-in with [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Ad"] against Chris Alafogiannis’ [poker card="Ac"][poker card="9c"], which managed trip nines on a dramatic board of [poker card="9h"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="8d"][poker card="7c"][poker card="9s"] that sent the Rio into raptures. As the room reacted with whoops and cheers, Jack Effel offered Campbell a chance to play the WSOP Main Event in 2022 and one player had the temerity to capture the moment in a slightly different way. https://twitter.com/PaulShadyoda/status/1459095275629207559?s=20 https://twitter.com/dklappin/status/1459090407674060800 With everyone locking up $15,000 min-cash, the chip leader at the close of play ended up being Jessica Cai, who bagged up 1,796,000 chips, marginally more than Thailand's Phachara Wongwichit (1,773,000). Players such as Stephen Song (1,557,000) and Chris Moneymaker (1,432,000) will both be hoping it is their year, with the latter going for the title 18 years after his era-defining victory of 2003. https://twitter.com/jeffplatt/status/1459221310454865920?s=20 Plenty of big names busted before the bubble burst, with Anthony Zinno, Justin Bonomo, Ben Lamb, Ole Schemion, Greg Mueller, Faraz Jaka, Andy Black, Niall Farrell, Jerry Yang, Liv Boeree Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Pat Lyons, Joseph Hebert, and Chris Hunichen WSOP 2021 Event #67 $10,000 WSOP Main Event Top 10 Chip counts: Jessica Cai - 1,796,000 Phachara Wongwichit - 1,773,000 Joshua Paige Remitio - 1,671,000 Ehsan Amiri - 1,574,000 Stephen Song - 1,557,000 Neel Choksi - 1,552,000 Andreas Kniep - 1,509,000 Chris Dowling - 1,485,000 Chris Moneymaker - 1,432,000 Johan Martinet - 1,365,000 Solitro, Alache, and Jackson Star on Day 2 of Little One for One Drop A busy day of action on Day 2 of the Little One for One Drop event saw three Day 1 flights combine into a massive second day of action. With the $1,111-entry event seeing the 3,797 field reduced to just 229 players, with some superstar names at the top of the leaderboard. Mathew Solitro (2,300,000) bagged up the chip lead, closely followed by Day 1c chip leader Oscar Alache (1,980,000) and David Jackson (1,935,000), with players like Sorel Mizzi (1,280,000), Melanie Weisner (610,000) and Joe Cheong (510,000) not too far back. With other legends such as Phil Laak (500,000), 2019 WSOP Main Event winner Hossein Ensan (345,000), and 2021 bracelet winner DJ Alexander (320,000) all making Day 3, there are sure to be some very exciting moments as the next day of action brings us closer to finding out who the next bracelet winner will be. WSOP 2021 Event #68 $1,111 Little One for One Drop Top 10 Chipcounts: Mathew Solitro - 2,300,000 Oscar Alache - 1,980,000 David Jackson - 1,935,000 Jan Wagner - 1,720,000 Idris Ambraisse - 1,605,000 Lingkun Lu - 1,590,000 Chris Vickrey - 1,565,000 Edward Pak - 1,475,000 Masaki Nakamura - 1,450,000 David Singontiko - 1,450,000 Event #69 Sees Dozen Remain in Bracelet Hunt The $1,500-entry Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Event #69 has just 12 players remaining in the hunt for the latest WSOP bracelet and bracelet winners John Racener (1,220,000) and John Monette (1,165,000) who lead the way heading into the final table of the event. With other bracelet winners of the past Carol Fuchs (940,000) and Norwegian player Espen Sandvik (255,000) still in the hunt, a dramatic final day is in the offing on Friday night as the final dozen will return to battle for the bracelet and $113,459 top prize. WSOP 2021 Event #69 $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Top 10 Chipcounts: John Racener - 1,220,000 John Monnette - 1,165,000 Esther Taylor - 1,100,000 John Hoang - 1,065,000 Peder Berge - 962,000 Carol Fuchs - 940,000 Jermaine Reid - 725,000 Joseph Ranciato - 705,000 Espen Sandvik - 255,000 Joseph Kupresanin - 240,000 Negreanu Loses to Royalty, Calvin Anderson Sits Top 5 Daniel Negreanu suffered a bad beat as he busted from the $1,500-entry Bounty PLO Event #71. All-in with two pair, the Canadian busted to Colossus winner Anatolii Zyrin. The Russian had a flush draw and got there on the turn, but even worse/better was to come for the video blog-filming Kid Poker, as the ten of diamonds on the river gave his opponent a royal flush. At the end of play, Mourad Amokrane held the chip lead, with 1,066,000 the only seven-figure stack in the room. Jaime Lewin (712,000) and Nikolay Yosifiv (674,000) were Amokrane’s nearest challengers, with Calvin Anderson (525,000) the biggest name in the top 10 on a day when players such as Ryan Laplante, Ryan Hughes, Ian Steinman and Avi Cohen all missed out on bagging an end-of-day stack. WSOP 2021 Event #71 $1,500 Bounty Pot Limit Omaha Top 10 Chipcounts: Mourad Amokrane - 1,066,000 Jaime Lewin - 712,000 Nikolay Yosifov - 674,000 Miltiadis Kyriakides - 578,000 Calvin Anderson - 525,000 Paulo Villena - 483,000 Ryan Coon - 468,000 Matthew Mlsna - 465,000 Blake Napierala - 461,000 Manuel Ruivo - 448,000 Jon Aguiar highlighted the difference between a 40 big blind stack in 2008 and 13 years later in 2021. https://twitter.com/JonAguiar/status/1458964113497808898 GGPoker ambassador may have lost the last longer bet for the remote control against his wife, Natalie Hof Ramos, but he couldn’t help wishing his love good luck as the German progressed to Day 4. https://twitter.com/FelipeMojave/status/1458920630909222943 Finally, few of us will ever get to experience it, but for everyone feeling a little FOMO at not being in Vegas, we’d look away now if we were you. This is how it feels to make Day 4 of the Main Event, whoever you may be. https://twitter.com/ChancesCards/status/1459092723957260293
  3. It was another busy day at the 2021 World Series of Poker as three events moved closer to completion, with some of the biggest names in poker competing in the $25,000-entry Pot Limit Omaha Event #53, the Seniors Event closing out a huge Day 1b and the first day of action in the 9-Game Mix taking place at the Rio. Ben Lamb Holds $25K PLO Lead In the $25,000-entry PLO Event #53, it was Ben Lamb, the former WSOP Main Event third-place finisher from 2011, who made it to Day 3 with a chip lead. Just 25 players made the end of Day 2 with a stack, but no one bagged bigger than Lamb, who had piled up 3,885,000 by the close of play, with his nearest challengers Nathan Zimnik (2,535,000) and David Benyamine (2,340,000) some way behind his total. Others who made the Day 3 cut included Joao Vieira (1,805,000), Bryce Yockey (1,420,000) and Jeremy Ausmus (1,280,000) just three examples of big names with big chances of success at the tail-end of the event. Another player who will hope to keep a great run going at this year’s World Series of Poker is Tommy Le (1,035,000), who won a second bracelet just the other day in PLO. Plenty of big names were unable to make it through the day, with Chance Kornuth, Joseph Cheong, Ben Yu, Ian O’Hara, Scott Seiver, Eric Kurtzman all cashing but failing to make Day 3, with Niklas Astedt, Josh Arieh, and Stephen Chidwick busting outside the money places. WSOP 2021 Event #53 $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller Top 10 Chipcounts: Ben Lamb - 3,885,000 Nathan Zimnik - 2,535,000 David Benyamine - 2,340,000 LaDarren Banks - 2,000,000 Shaun Deeb - 1,975,000 Joao Vieira - 1,805,000 Farhad Jamasi - 1,480,000 Veselin Karakitukov - 1,445,000 Bryce Yockey - 1,420,000 Charles Sinn - 1,335,000 Seniors Come Out To Play On a mammoth Day 1b of the $1,000-entry Event #52 the Seniors Event, Dany Georges bagged the biggest stack as he totaled 464,000 by the close of the day’s action. Georges had a good lead from players such as Scott Sisler (372,000) who finished second in chips and Mike Ruter (345,000) who also grabbed a podium place with over a thousand players still involved. The total field of both days stood at 5,404 by the end of registration, with 622 players from the Day 1b field making it through. Big names to make the cut included the ‘Robin Hood of Poker’, Barry Greenstein (156,500), James Moore (104,000), who has already won the Super Seniors Event twice in his poker career, and Allen ‘Chainsaw’ Kessler (80,500), who highlighted the positivity of the day as the WSOP dealers at the Rio got a well-earned round of applause. https://twitter.com/AllenKessler/status/1453862989891735554 WSOP 2021 Event #52 $1,000 Seniors Championship Top 10 Chipcounts: Dany Georges - 464,000 Scott Sisler - 372,000 Mike Ruter - 345,000 Ali Pabarja - 336,500 Randy Marker - 311,500 Steven Sheldon - 309,500 Billy Sewell - 297,000 Azim Popatia - 289,000 Jarufe Farah - 286,000 Matthew Shihadeh - 284,500 Rast, Elezra In $2,500 Nine Game Mix Top 10 Finally, Event #54 concluded with 136 players still in seats from 319 entries in the Nine-Game Mix which takes place six-handed throughout. After the first day’s play, Kao Saechao (240,000) had the chip lead, with Brian Rast - who won a WSOP bracelet as recently as on Day 28 - on 212,100 chips close behind him. Paul Holder came into the overnight counts third on 201,500. Other notables to grab a bag at the close of play and plan for a Day 2 strategy included Kevin Gerhart (158,300), Adam Owen (154,300), WSOP Main Event runner-up David Williams (153,100), Maria Ho (135,900), three-time WSOP bracelet winner Josh Arieh (129,700) and ‘Kid Poker’ himself, Daniel Negreanu (62,000). Other superstars weren’t so fortunate, with 16-time champion Phil Hellmuth, Frank Kassela, Chris Vitch, and Mike Watson all being eliminated before the end of Day 1. There will only be 48 paid places, so all of the remaining players have a lot to do yet before they can pat themselves on the back for making a profit in another WSOP event. WSOP 2021 Event #54 $2,500 Nine-Game Mix Six-Handed Top 10 Chipcounts: Kao Saechao - 240,000 Brian Rast - 212,100 Paul Holder - 201,500 Peiwen Wang - 201,400 Eli Elezra - 196,100 Ryan Himes - 190,900 Ray Henson - 190,600 Kentaro Hori - 175,800 Christopher Putz - 169,000 Matt Szymaszek - 168,900 Finally, Chris Moneymaker was quick to pour scorn on PokerGO presenter Jeff Platt’s run in Event #43 as proof that ‘anyone’ can win big at a poker tournament. Quick as a whip, Platt shot one right back at the 2003 WSOP Main Event world champion. https://twitter.com/CMONEYMAKER/status/1453859024965885955
