Yueqi Zhu earlier today was disqualified from Event #53 of the World Series of Poker.   The event is the $1,500 Limit Holdem Shootout and each table during a round is played to a winner.   In Round 1 action yesterday, Zhu was heads-up on his table and his opponent was down to 6,000 in chips.   Zhu was not feeling well and a deal was struck between the two resulting in the player folding until Zhu was the winner.

Day 34 at the 2010 WSOP is moving right along with final tables in both the $1,000 NL, the $1,500 NL, and the $5,000 PLO.   Robert Mizrachi is in the PLO.   Otherwise, there aren't a lot of big names in the other final tables.  The high profile event of the day is the $25,000 Six-Handed NL Event.
