And here are the latest WSOP news. Michael Mizrachi was among the chip leaders for the 192 players that returned for Day 2 action.  The money bubble was reached and burst with 48 players making the money of this event.  Among those in the money were Chris Ferguson, Vitaly Lunkin, Frank Kassela, Michael Mizrachi, and Todd Brunson.

Steve Sung was the main headliner going into the final table.  He was also the chip leader.  Here is how the final eight players started final table play:

Steve Sung

900,000

Nikolai Yakovenko

575,000

Stephen Su

544,000

Alexander Wice

360,000

Sigurd Eskeland

346,000

Scott Seiver

229,000

Jared Jaffee

210,000

Kirill Rabtsov

125,000

Heads-up play in this event was between Sigurd Eskeland and Steve Sung.  At the start of heads-up play, Eskeland led 2.263 Million to the 1.134 Million of Sung.  Sung battled back and held the chip lead briefly going into the NL Holdem round.  Eskeland had regained the lead when the largest pot of the match went down to end the event.  A raising war went down pre-flop resulting in Eskeland moving all-in with Ac-9s.  Sung insta-called with pocket queens.

The flop fell 3d-9c-4c to give Eskeland a pair and outs to a running flush.  The turn Jc made the flush a realistic possibility.  Sung has to avoid an ace, nine, or club to double up and cripple Eskeland.  The river fell the 2c to give Eskeland the unlikely flush and the bracelet.

Sigurd Eskeland is the Event #48 champion.  This former teacher went from being famous for ass crack in 2008 to cracking queens for bracelets in 2010.  In addition to his first WSOP bracelet, he took home $260,497.
