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.

While some have been going about poker fun at poker’s “lovable nit”, Kessler has turned around and cashed 8 times at this year’s WSOP.   You read that right 8 times. Nikolay Evdakov cashed 10 times in the 2008 World Series of Poker.   That is the current record.

*TOC Change* The Tournament of Champions has been pushed up a day to July 3rd.   With 17 players remaining tournament staff realized they may need to push up the TOC and add an extra day.   Right now its set at 7pm on July 3rd unless a player is at the $25k 6-max final table or still in the Ante Up For Africa charity event then in that case it will be pushed to 9am on Sunday July 4th.   They will be playing down to a winner on the 4th regardless of play on the 3rd.
