WSOP Day 16 Update - Bubble Bursting and a Lady Stud
Day 16 at the 2010 World Series of Poker has just about all of the poker variants covered. The final tables of both the $1,500 PLO and $1,500 Seven Card Stud are underway. Day 2 of the $2,500 Limit Holdem Six-Handed is in Day 2 as well as the $1,000 Ladies World Championship. Also, Day 1a of yet another $1,000 event featuring World Series of Poker hold em is being played over in the Pavilion Room.
Last Scumbag Standing
The ladies event has reached the money here and the remaining 117 players will make at least $1,802. When the money bubble burst, the cheers could be heard well into the hallway. When the bubble breaks for the Ladies World Championship, the cheers are the loudest of any event bubble outside of the Main Event.
However, there was one cheer that exceeded it this year. There was one man left in this yearâs field and to the annoyance of many, he made the money. He didnât get very far into the money as he busted around 100th. When he busted, the entire room burst into cheers and the floor man announced, âCongratulations, maâam.â
Interestingly enough, the guy was the same one whose picture I posted yesterday. I found it doubly interesting that his last name is Daifuku. (Perhaps pronounced Die-Fuck-You. At least that is likely what some of the ladies would probably pronounce it as.)
Also, Melissa Castello just told me that she spoke with Seth Palansky about whether the guys that entered the event would be punished and according to her, he said that they would be. So Mr. Daifuku may get fukuâd for his âLadies Eventâ min-cash.
Seven Guys, One Girl, and a Stud Bracelet
The $1,500 Seven Card Stud Event is currently being played out on the secondary final table over across from me in the Amazon Room. Pat Pezzin, Dan Heimiller, and Sorel Mizzi are all at the final. Also, Christine Pietsch has become the third woman this year to make the final table of an open event. Jennifer Harman and J.J. Liu are the other two. At present, she is 3rd in chips with seven players left.
Play continues on here at the 2010 WSOP. The $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Split World Championship just kicked off at 5 p.m. Many of the usual suspects are filing in and will continue to do so until the end of the first break. I will be back a bit later with more from the 2010 WSOP.
