Shawn Busse Wins WSOP Gold Bracelet in Event 47

by: Nolan Dalla-

 
21-Year-Old Poker Pro Wins No-Limit Hold’em Championship
 
 
Shawn Busse was the winner of the $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em championship at the 2010 World Series of Poker.  He is a 21-year-old poker pro from Massapequa, NY.  This marked his first time to cash at the WSOP.  Busse collected $485,791 in prize money.
 
The runner up was Owen Crowe, from Canada who cashed for the eighth time at the WSOP.  Crowe’s most notable previous achievement was a 15th-place finish in the 2008 WSOP Main Event championship.  He collected a nice consolation prize amounting to $300,494.

This tournament had special meaning because it was played in memory of former gold bracelet winner Amir Vahedi, who won this event in 2003.  Vahedi, famous for his smile, his wit, and his trademark cigar, passed away late last year.  To remember Vahedi, the WSOP presented the winner of this tournament with a box of the late champion’s favorite cigars – Saint Luis Rey Rothchilde.

The top 324 finishers collected prize money.  Aside from those who made the final table, former WSOP gold bracelet finishers who cashed in this event included – Scott Montgomery (29th), Antonio Esfandiari (73rd), Peter Traply (75th), Simon Watt (118th), Mickey Appleman (156th), Jeff Madsen (200), David Sklansky (247th), and Al Krux (276th).

Mike Linn Wins WSOP Gold Bracelet in Event 49

by: Nolan Dalla


San Diego Student Tops 2,543 Player Field
 

Michael Linn was the winner of the $1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em championship at the 2010 World Series of Poker.  This marked his first career WSOP gold bracelet victory.  Linn collected $609,493 in prize money in what was his third time to cash at the WSOP.  Linn’s most notable previous achievement was cashing in last year’s WSOP Main Event championship, where he finished 191st.

Linn is a 22-year-old student from La Jolla, .  His uncle is poker star Barry Greenstein.

The runner up was Taylor Larkin, from Siloam Springs, AR.

The top 270 finishers collected prize money.  Former WSOP gold bracelet finishers who cashed in this event included – Roland de Wolfe (60th), Marc Naalden (134th), Robert Cheung (183rd), Matt Matros (194th), David Daneshgar (201st), and J.P. Kelly (208th).

Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler (191st place) became the first player at this year’s WSOP to cash eight times.  The record for most cashes in a single year is ten, held by Nikolay Evdakov in 2008.  Kessler is now in serious contention to match or break the record with seven WSOP events remaining, plus five more tournaments to be held at WSOP Europe in September.

Chance Kornuth Wins WSOP Gold Bracelet in Event 50

by: Nolan Dalla

Chance Kornuth was the winner of the $5,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha championship at the 2010 World Series of Poker.  This marked his first career WSOP gold bracelet victory.  Kornuth exploded upon the scene at the Rio out of nowhere to collect $508,090 in prize money in what was only this second time to cash at the WSOP.  His Las Vegas winnings up to this point had amounted to $2,005.

The final duel was an all-Colorado battle.  The runner up was Kevin Boudreau, from Colorado Springs, CO.  He earned a very respectable consolation prize amounting to $313,792.

The top 45 finishers collected prize money.  Former WSOP gold bracelet finishers who cashed in this event included – Jason Mercier (16th), Joshua Tieman (21st), Ayaz Mahmood (22nd), and Annette Obrestad (36th).

Day 3 Concludes, Dan Kelly in Control

It was a relatively brief Day 3 here at the $25,000 NLHE six-max event. 18 players returned to play down to a final table of six, and within the first level we lost an entire table of players. By the time were down to eight, we'd lost former big stacks Daniel Negreanu, Abe Mosseri, and Isaac Haxton, along with the man who came into the day with a dominating chip lead, Bryn Kenney.

The story of the day, however, was that of the rise of Dan Kelly. Best known as "djk123" online, the 21 year-old came into Day 3 with only 260,000 in chips, making him the shortest stack among the final 18 players. Kelly found an early double-up and just kept on swinging, three-betting and check-raising his way to the 5,895,000 he just bagged up. With just over 14.3 million spread around the table, Kelly controls more than 41% of the chips in play.

The oldest player remaining in this event by more than a decade and a half, Frank Kassela, also made a surge today and is making a serious run at his third bracelet. Kassela is second in chips with 2.6 million and now has a stranglehold on the WSOP Player of the Year race. Guaranteed at least sixth place, Kassela is now 45 points ahead of John Juanda, and a win in this event would make it extremely difficult for anyone to catch him for the title.

 Event #53: $1,500 Limit Hold’em Shootout

Congratulations to Brendan Taylor, Event #53 Champion ($184,950)

The 53rd event of the 2010 World Series of Poker, the $1,500 Limit Shootout tournament, has come to an end with Brendan Taylor emerging victorious. Three days ago the tournament started with 548 competitors who played down to 64. From there, the field was whittled down to just eight.

Anticipation for the final table was centered on two individuals, Jonathan Little and Terrence Chan. Chan, who is considered one of the best limit players in the game, was the first to go. Little managed to do a little better by finishing third. No one could have predicted what was discovered next. It turned out the final two players, Taylor and Ben Yu, were in fact housemates here in Vegas. The rail was filled with their supporters who couldn't believe the pair was going to battle heads up for a gold bracelet.

Taylor started heads up with a commanding chip lead and the first hand between the two was symbolic that the title was meant for Taylor. In that hand, the board had three aces and Taylor put out a bet. Yu called and was crippled when Taylor showed the fourth ace. It was just a few hands later that Taylor finished the job and captured his first WSOP gold bracelet along with the $184,950 first place prize.

Congratulations to Brendan Taylor, Event #53 Champion!

1     Brendan Taylor          184,950
2    Ben Yu               114,484

 Event #54: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em
Day 1b completed

Today's Day 1b attracted fewer runners than we saw yesterday, with 1,504 total coming out to take their shot at this last of the $1,000 open-field buy-in events. Put together with yesterday's field of 2,340, and that made 3,844 entrants altogether, creating a total prize pool of $3,459,000.

There were relatively fewer so-called "name" pros in our field today as compared to yesterday, too, although there were a number of familiar faces scattered among the many tables as we made our first walk throughs early in the afternoon. Among those who came and -- ultimately -- went, were Chris Moneymaker, Barry Shulman, Chad Brown, Men Nguyen, J.C. Tran, David Wiliams, Ken Aldridge, and Phil Ivey.

Midway through the day Andrew Talbot won a huge hand versus Peter Feldman, knocking out Feldman and catapulting Talbot into the chip lead. He'd remain among the leaders at the top of the counts for most of the day, joined near evening's end by Jeremy Wilck, Anthony Gargano, Yuval Bronshtein, and Josh Barnes.

However, all will be chasing James Dempsey when the two Day One flights join together tomorrow. The British pro amassed a huge stack of more than 140,000 on Day 1a, and will return on Saturday to unbag the biggest pile of chips in the room.
