Parvizi (UK) is chippy of the $10k HORSE.

Looks to be loving life, and 89JQ in 08 until the river Smiley

He seems far more happy, mature & settled than I recall from previously.

Hr's not quite sure what to do with is life, & whether he should stay in poker. He's involved in private games, were players are recruited rather like lambs to the slaughter, & it's starting to sit heavily on his shoulders.

All over in the Millionaire Maker, and in somewhat dramatic fashion. Razavi down to just under 20 BB, shoves pre with AJ, Kern calls him with 4-2 suited in spades! Two spades on the flop gives him a flush draw, and another spade on the turn and it's all over! Kern gets the bracelet and over $1.1m, Razavi just misses out.

Another near miss for a British bracelet and a regular Sky Poker TV guest.

Sorry I can't bring you news of a British bracelet, but there's still plenty to be happy about


Event 21 - $1500 Millionaire Maker, NLH, Day 4 of 5, 7361 entries

Almost unheard of, a tournament finishing a day early, and some fine British performances to note.

Two Brits made the final table, the legend that is Barny Boatman added to his impressive number of WSOP cashes by finishing 7th for $175K, and frequent former Sky Poker TV guest Sam Razavi went better, a lot better by being the runner-up and collected a cheque for $724K.

Even then that does not tell the whole story, as Razavi had the chip lead at times heads up, both players winning hands when at risk to double up but a full-house on hand 239 saw the game turn Arne Kern's way and ten hands later it was all over. I mis-described the action when giving a quick update earlier, it was shoved with his 4-2 of spades and Razavi who snap-called rather than the other way around.

Former ME winner Joe McKeehen picked up his second third place of the series for over half a million dollars.

Most British WSOP cashes
Stephen Chidwick 52
Barny Boatman 50
Niall Farrell 38
Andrew Teng 37
Chris Moorman 37
Roberto Romanello 35
Stuart Rutter 34
Dave Ulliott 33
Neil Channing 33
Surinder Sumar 31
Richard Ashby 30
Sorry, Tikay, you're not on this list yet. Maybe sometime soon!

(most overall Hellmuth 128, Negreanu 104, Seidel 102, Ferguson 101)


Event 24 - $2620 The Marathon (100 minute levels), Day 3 of 5, 1637 entries

After 3 days, Taylor Paur has a significant chip lead at the overnight count.

Just 60 marathon runners survive, with Anton Morgenstern a distant second and a neighbour of Paur in San Diego, Mark Sleet in third.

There's still two former ME winners left - Martin Jacobson and Scotty Nguyen, and two Brits too - Javier Fernandez and Chris Moorman (second mention for him in this update)


Event 25 - $1500 7 Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or better, Day 3 of 3, 596 entries

In contrast to Event 21, this one will need an extra day as Day 3 couldn't whittle down the final 3 players.

The good news is that Day 2 leader Ben Dobson retains that position, and he has over half the chips in play. With only 30 big bets in play, none of the 3 players are deep stacked, but Dobson must have a huge chance of his first bracelet.

Tim Finne nursed a short stack throughout the day and laddered up as others perished, to the point where he sits in second and Jesse Martin brings up the rear with just over 3 big bets left.


Event 26 - $1K PLO, Day 2 of 3, 986 entrants

We're left with 14 players, none of whom have a bracelet on their CV

It's the Greek sounding American Filippos Stravrakis who leads, ahead of Pascal Damois (France) & Felipe Raomos (Brazil).

There's still a Welsh interest, but Robert Cowen will enter Day 3 with the second smallest stack, about 10% of the chip leader, already sure of $7446 with the winner picking up $169K and change.


Event 27 - $10K HORSE Championship, Day 2 of 3, 166 entrants

A sweet 16 survivors, with two of the lesser known players in the field, Laith Salem and Albert Daher in the top two places.

The better known John Hennigan is the first of 7 bracelet winners in the 16 person field, and the only British challenger, Iraj Parvizi is 4th.

The other former bracelet holders are Randy Ohel, Carol Fuchs, David "Bakes" Baker, Jean Gaspard, Anthony Zinno and Robert Mizrachi.


Event 28 - $3K NLH 6-Max, Day 1 of 3, 868 entrants

131 will get paid with the winner collecting $461K, but that's still some way off as 186 players remain in contention.

It's very close at the top between German Christian Rudolph and Italian Federico Petruzelli, just 1000 in chips between them with 3 other European players in the top 13, one of them being British challenger Philip Ward.

Several others with a British flag against their names are listed - Sergio Espina Aido, Daniel Hide, Florian Duta, James Akenhead, Stephen Chidwick (another getting his second mention), Michael Kane, James Rann (two Sky players with very similar stacks), Paul Newey, Darren Taylor and George McDonald. Six-max suits us well so it seems.

From elsewhere, Tony Dunst, Justin Liberto (fresh from the FT of event 21). Erik Seidel, Olivier Busquet, Eric Baldwin, Manig Loeser and Greg Merson.

Two more players I want to mention - Alex Keating, which if I remember correctly was Michael J Fox's character in Family Ties, and right down at the bottom of the chip counts, Zachary Smiley. What a great name to go through life with.



Event 29 - $1500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball (Limit), Day 1 of 3, 356 entrants

A real niche game now, with just over 350 players for a $1500 bracelet. At least it's up on last year's 328.

86 of the 356 bagged chips at the end of Day 1, New Yorker Jared Bleznick the overnight leader ahead of Rick Fuller and David Prociak.

Philip Long's confidence must be sky-high right now after winning his first bracelet the other day, and he's on the lookout for another one here, inside the Top 10 after Day 1.

Other Brits Cody Wagner and Haresh Thaker join him for some Day 2 action along with David "ODB" Baker, Frank Kassela, Shaun Deeb and the short-stacked trio of Brian Hastings, Allen Kessler & Dzmitry Urbanovich.
