Hello out there all you poker junkies.  Michael has turned the reins back over for my account and I will take you home for this final WSOP update. After 8 days and 7,310 eliminations, we're finally down to our November Nine.  We got to the unofficial final table of 10 after Pascal LeFrancois was eliminated in 11th place.

WSOP Main Event Day 8 Third Update - More Eliminations, Redraw

1 18 July 2010 , By: compncards
Crowd 200x300
We are still averaging 4 eliminations per level as the first 2 levels saw 8 players go. Will the next two levels bring the same? *Fourth Level* Players came back for the third level of the day with the blinds at 100k/200k and antes of 30k. With 19 players left we were waiting on only one more player to be eliminated before a full-field redraw would happen. *Michiel Sijpkens out in 19th* Sijpkens made a climb up the chip counts briefly before finally plummeting down and then out of the tournament.

No Patch 430x286
Day 8 is finally here. This will be the last day of play for the Main Event until the final 9 come back in November to play out the 9-man SNG for the ~9 million first place. *Battle of Sponsors* As per WSOP rules and regulations when players are on a feature table only 3 players can wear a logo for a single site. What this means is on a table full of 9 players, only 3 can wear Full Tilt Patches and 3 can wear PokerStars patches.

WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!! Day 7 is finally in the books. We were looking at a very long night here at the Rio but amazingly the remaining 27 players have bagged up their chips and left the Amazon room (well except for the last few doing interviews). *Bryn Kenney Gambles.

WSOP Main Event Day 6 Closing Update - Breezes, Celebration, and More....

16 July 2010 , By: compncards
Candio 200x300
Only 78 players have survived Day 6 to guarantee themselves at least $94,942. Today we saw the year of the woman become no more, one more Mizrachi brother go down and a new chip color. *Going Out on a Breeze* Coming into the day Breeze Zuckerman had 738k and at one point she had peaked to just over 1 million. For the majority of the day she was sitting on the Jack Links feature table and that is where she was crippled.

WSOP Main Event Day 6 Update - Chan Gone, Bigger Stacks

15 July 2010 , By: compncards
J Chan 200x300
Day 6 has begun but not with a few fireworks. What will the day have in store for us? We started the day with 205 players left in the field, before the end of the day we will be under 100. Who will moving up the chip counts and who will be moving on with their lives? We have no clue what the schedule has in line for us today, could be 5 full levels, could play 4. Heck we could even stop sometime in the middle of the 3rd one if bustouts happen too fast.

WSOP Main Event Day 5 Update - Ladies, Johnny, and The Brothers

Zuckerman 200x300
Only 7. 8% of the original 7,319 players that started the Main Event this year have survived the first four days of play - 574 for those of you that care to not do the math. Jack Effel has estimated that we will lose at least half of that today and have around 275 players left after the four levels have been finished. We will be here all day to gather up the stories of the day.

WSOP Main Event Day 4 Update - Bubbles, Mizrachi Brothers, Circuit Events

13 July 2010 , By: compncards
Mizrachi 200x300
Day 3 is in the books and Day 4 is upon us. There's a quiet buzz going in the Amazon room and a faint whisper in the Pavilion room (only 16 tables started the day over there) about the money bubble. *Bubble Day* It's fully expected that today we will have the money bubble bust for the Main Event. With 1,203 players starting today the field only has to lose 456 players before the bubble is reached.

WSOP Commentary: Year of the Woman and Other WSOP Myths

This year at the 2010 World Series of Poker has been dubbed with different “Year Of’s. ” I thought it was interesting to see how some of the “big stories” coming into the 2010 WSOP have been developing. *Year of the Woman* Coming into the WSOP, Ty Stewart made the prediction that 2 or 3 women would win open field WSOP events. Mike Matusow stated that if this happened, he would run naked down the strip.
