The WSOP rolls on and our two final tables are clicking along. The PLO Final is down to five players with Miguel Proulx the current chip leader. The $10,000 Limit Holdem Championship started with Michael Mizrachi, David Chiu, and Brock Parker, but all of them have dropped by the wayside leaving Matt Keikoan the leader with 4 players left. The $1,500 NL is playing to the final table, or such is the play.

Well its day 9 (I think) but its my day 2 in Vegas. I ran around today meeting with everyone and trying to catch up with everything thats going on. I checked out my first bracelet ceremony today and here is who won. Ringleader of the V-neck crew, Pascal LeFrancois, 23 of Montreal, was the winner of Event #8 the $1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em championship.

WSOP Day 6 - Mizrachi Wins First Bracelet

Mizrachi PJ 430x286
It’s Day 6 already? Other than the fact that my legs ache, it doesn’t really seem like that it has been six days since the WSOP has started. Clearly that is the case because the $50,000 Player’s Championship concluded last night. Michael Mizrachi came back from a big hole to take the most coveted prize at the WSOP outside of the Main Event. If you would have told me at the beginning that a Mizrachi would win this event, I would have said “Robert Mizrachi?” I would have laughed at you if you said that Michael would win.

My Picks to Win Their First Bracelet at the 2010 WSOP

Andy Bloch 225x300
The World Series of Poker 2010 is just over two months away and it is about time for the media to start their speculation into who will do well and who will have breakout performances. Of course, I could come on here and make my standard "€œIvey will win a bracelet and maybe more if he applies himself"€ prediction, but for this blog, I figured I would list the five players that I feel have a good shot at a bracelet this year. #1: Andy Bloch Every since I first met Andy in 2006, I have been pulling for him. Bloch has two runner-up finishes, with the most famous being his runner-up finish to Chip Reese in the 2006 $50k HORSE event.
