There are two events playing down to a final table today — the massive field Event 7 ($560 NLHE w/ $1 Million Guarantee) will resume play at 2:00 pm, and Event 11 ($2,200 NLHE) will continue at 1:00 pm.
There are three new events that start today, starting with the Seniors event at noon:
After the redraw for the final three tables, the two chipleaders found themselves sitting side-by-side at the featured table, with Johnny Miller (pictured above, on the right) having position against Bryan Campanello (pictured, left).
The photo above was taken during the hand that took Miller’s chip stack across the 10 million mark.
Andy Hwang min-raises UTG+1 to 180,000, Campanello reraises from the small blind to 340,000, and Miller puts in a cold four-bet from the big blind to 1,100,000. Hwang folds, and Campanello folds behind him.
Miller shows as he collects the preflop pot to increase his chip lead.
Johnny Miller – 10,150,000 (112 bb) Bryan Campanello – 6,200,000 (68 bb) Andy Hwang – 1,475,000 (16 bb)
(Unfortunately for Hwang, he was eliminated in about 24th place a few minutes later.)
Event 13 started earlier today and has already reached a conclusion. How did it go so quickly? Because it was a $240 buy-in no-limit hold’em “Escalator” tournament.
The first level was just three minutes long, the second level was six minutes long, the third level was nine minutes long, and so on, adding three minutes to each level until they reach one hour in duration.
When the field got down to the final seven players, they agreed to a straight 7-way chop, with Jorie Polokoff taking the trophy.
The final table of Event 10 ($240 H.O.R.S.E.) came to an end earlier today when the final five players agreed to a chop, awarding the title to chipleader Jason Like.
Here is the complete list of payouts, followed by photos of the eight final tablists:
1st: Jason Like – $4,999 2nd: Bruce Zalkin – $2,520 3rd: Ed Ward – $2,519 4th: Mark Robinson – $2,519 5th: Gary Flur – $2,519 6th: Jordan Chiznick – $1,000 7th: Barry Levy – $796 8th: BoB Poolos – $592 9th: Ralph Broderick – $428 10th: Ronald Unger – $428 11th: Christopher Kasper – $428 12th: Arnold Cohen – $428 13th: Ky MacPherson – $306 14th: Wendell Morse – $306 15th: Michelle Lau – $306 16th: Joseph Antelo – $306
While the Money Bubble was in progress in the massive field for Event 7, Event 10 ($240 HORSE) quietly came to an end with a five-way chop.
Chipleader Jason Like was awarded the trophy and $4,999 in prize money.
It may be a while before we can provide more details of who finished where, because the payout desk is currently swamped with the flurry of bustouts from Event 7. We’ll get the data and post it here as soon as things calm down a bit for the tournament staff.
Correction: There was some miscommunication in the results earlier, but they’ve been corrected.
