Event 34 - $1000 Double Stack NLH, 5 Day Event, Day 4 of 5, 6214 entries


We're down to a Final Table of 6, and the chip leader is a familiar name, although he hasn't bagged himself a bracelet yet. Joseph Cheong has over $13m in live cashes, headlined by the over $4m he got for finishing 3rd to Jonathan Duhamel in the 2010 ME (the year Redmond got to 21st). He is aiming to add over $687K to that total but is of course mainly in pursuit of that elusive first bracelet.

Cheong has 100.3m chips and as they'll come back to blinds of 500K/1m, it's easy to work out he has 100BB, a long way clear of nearest rival David Ivers (60BB) and Zinan Xu is third with 54BB

There is still a female challenger - Arianna Son who has been up among the chip leaders most of the tournament has now dropped to the back, with just 5BB but like everyone else left in, she has earned at least $134K.

The last two British challengers both fell on Day 4 - Jack Sinclair went out in 27th for $27K, ten places earlier than Andrew Hawskby whose payout slip bore the amount $29666.


Event 37 - $800 NLH Deepstack, Day 3 of 3, $750K guaranteed, 2808 entries


A long day of poker saw them play all the way from 26 to just 1, and that 1 was Robert Mitchell who took nearly $300K and a gold bracelet and will return home to Utah a WSOP Champion.

Holding pockets aces and have the opponent go all-in on you pre-flop when heads-up for a bracelet must be a very surreal experience, and then to see the board run out dry must make it even more so. Marco Bognanni got no help for his pocket threes and Mitchell was the champion.

France's Axel Halley finished third with players from Switzerland, Canada and Ukraine 4th 5th & 6th.

The only Briton through to the final day was Joshua Boulton who ended up 10th with a very nice cash of $19601 more than doubling his entire career recorded cashes, most of which have come in Torquay.


Event 39 - $1000 Super Seniors NLH, Day 2 of 3, 2650 entries



Day 2 of the Super Seniors reduced the field to 120 which I expect to mean that an extra days play will be needed

Jay Hong is the chip leader, but the player in second is bound to extract some interest - double bracelet winner (including a WSOP Europe Main Event) Barry Shulman. And he's not the only Shulman in the 120, his wife, Allyn is also through.

Humberto Brenes and Tom Franklin are a couple more former bracelet winners qualifying (does Brenes still have that annoying toy shark shtick?) along with three from these shores - in descending stack order Michael Davis, Peter Costa (2 cashes already this WSOP) and Edwin Bibes.

We lost plenty of British players over the day, those who cashed included Tony Bedford (almost immediately after the bursting of the bubble), Linda Iwaniak (who finalled this event last year) and Mark McCluskey.


Event 40 - $1500 PLO, Day 2 of 3, 1216 entries


Twenty one players remain in the chase for Event 40, all now sure of at least $8807 but with $298K up top there's going to be some ups and downs yet.

Barny Boatman suffered one of the downs, getting knocked out on the bubble by Mike "The Mouth" Matusow

It is Denis Bagsadarov who tucked away the biggest stack of Day 2 ahead of Glen Cressman and Johannes Toebbe, with double bracelet holder Ben Zamani in 4th. Even lying 4th, he's not the highest player from Boca Raton, Florida as Crossman is also from that hometown.

It looks like we have one British challenger still involved, Adam Monaghan, but the only player of that name in the Hendon Mob Database is an Aussie.


Event 41 - $10K Seven Card Stud, Day 2 of 4, 88 entries



A few late registrants took the field to 88 and just seven of them are left.

Daniel Negreanu spent the day almost relentlessly chipping up, first taking out a number of smaller stacks and finally busting Michael Mizrachi to establish a chip lead.

In contrast to some of the other events, this one will probably end up finishing a day early as they're already down to the FT which will free up the players for the next $10K event, the 2-7 Triple Draw.

Six of the seven left already have bracelets to their credit, Negreanu, David "ODB" Baker, Frank Kassela, John Hennigan, Chris Tryba & David Singer. The odd one out is Russia's Mikhail Semin


Event 42 - $600 Mixed NLH/PLO deepstack, 8-max, Day 1 of 2, $500K Guaranteed prize pool, 2403 entries



The field for this has already been depleted from 2403 to just 195, and while it should finish inside the planned two days, the expected early finish of Event 41 has meant that arrangements have been made for a Day 3 here if necessary.

Adam Lamphere is the Day 2 chip leader from Caleb Hershey and Dustin Goldklang a respectable distance back in second and third.

Scanning down the list of qualifiers I can see some who had Final Table runs in the main - Ylon Schwartz, Jesse Sylvia, Eoghan O'Dea and Tony Miles, and one who had the dream to Main Event glory, Jamie Gold, who won $12m for that win back in 2006, and has yet to reach $13m in career earnings.

A decent British challenge with Robert Cowen, James Dempsey, Barny Boatman, Sam Razavi aand Jeff Kimber amongst them.


Event 43 - $2500 Mixed Big Bet, Day 1 of 3, 218 entries



This one is rocking along at a furious pace, only 52 players still chasing 33 spots in the money and a first prize of $127K.

Jonathan Depa moved into the lead late on, overtaking Jared Bleznick who had been among the bigger stacks all day.

Phil Hellmuth by contrast was down almost to a chip and a chair before getting two late double ups to least give him something to work with on Day 2, even if he is still among the smaller stacks.

Somewhere in between we can find David Baker, not "ODB" who is on the FT of Event 41, but "Bakes", Brandon Shack-Harris, Mike Sexton, Chris Ferguson, David Benyamine, Eli Elezra and German footballer and regular WSOP participant Max Kruse.

The only British name I can find is Usman Siddique.


To start today, marking the halfway point of the 89 bracelet events

Event 44 - $1500 NLH Bounty, 3 Day Event

Event 45 - $25K PLO High Roller, 4 Day Event

Thanks Marky, appreciated, I'll pass that on.

He has a Football Club Historical Database that may interest a few, so if anyone fancies giving this a click or two it'd be appreciated. Some incred stuff on there, though it's a bit geeky for most.

Never a bad thing to tip a maid. And you can never have enough bottles of water.

I try n eat healthily - says the fat bloke currently scoffing Morrison’s shortbread biscuits at 9 am
So I also bought some dates ,prunes and small bags of cranberries n raisins ,of which I’ve eaten a few in the last few days - I’m still not healthy or thin ?
Fk knows why ?
With the resulting effects on my bowels that heavy doses of fruit has .
The Rio is the nut worst place to get a mild dose of the shits / griping stomach pains as it’s a 200 yard walk with bum cheeks clenched to discover a 60 person queue at the bog
So my advice ?
Lay off the fruit 😂😂😂💩💩💩

Nip in the ladies, we do the opposite when there's a big queue!

WP getting a flag too.

When I was there courtesy of next door, I swam every morning, it was bliss having a pool with a view that was in the sun as opposed to my local freezing indoor pool with no view at home.
