Only in America (part 957).


TV coverage tonight is only from 2am to 4am, then they switch to covering the Hot Dog Eating Contest.


GL Joey Chesnut!!

Smashed it.

71 HDBs.

12 titles now for the Chestnut.

He should be massive by now.

In the days i used to do Wsop he was doing it then. Me and the now wife would sit on the bed watching in amazement and it's gotta be ten years since we were there this time of year.

Good lad.


Have a guess what the record is for eating a 72oz steak.

Got a figure? Now google it.

The combination of a day off and some early finishes to tournaments has meant a bonus early update. The WSOP haven't yet published full chip counts from the Main so there will be an extra post about that later.


Event 70 - $5K NLH 6-max, Day 4 of 4, 751 entries so far


It's the first bracelet for Joao Vieira (together with $785K) and a fourth ever Portuguese bracelet.

Holding the chip lead at the end of both Day 2 & Day 3, he lost the lead at points in the day but as the field of 6 got thinned out, he was back at the top and managed to convert that chip lead in to the win.

2009 ME winner (and 4-time bracelet holder) Joe Cada had a small lead as heads-up play commenced, but and up-and-down straight draw got there on the river for Vieira on the fourth hand saw lots of chips change hands and five hands later it was all over when Vieira picked up AK and Cada AQ and the board ran out Jack high.

Jamie O'Connor was the only British player left, managing third place and his best ever live cash (nearly $318K) but he was another victim of Vieria, who this time only needed to get as far as the turn card to come from behind.


Event 71 - $500 Salute to Warriors NLH, Day 2 of 3, 1723 entries


No action on Thursday, it was a "rest day". They resume on Friday.


Event 72 - $10K Limit Hold'em Championship, Day 2 of 3, 118 entries


"Suomi, Suomi" chanted the rail as Juha Helppi won an extended heads-up match with Mike Lancaster to take his first ever bracelet (and the small matter of $306K).

Over four hours earlier, Tommy Hang was busted when both him and Helppi made a flush, Hang's the 10-high flush but unfortunately for him, Helppi had the nut flush.

Josh Arieh finished 6th, John Racener 11th and Eli Elezra 12th. Elezra has been showing all month with a USA flag against his name to reflect his residence I guess but now has the Israeli flag to properly represent his nationality.


Event 73 - $10K MAIN EVENT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP NLH, Day 1B of 10, 3250 entries so far


1915 entries on Day 1B so that makes the total with 1C and late reg (to the start of Day 2 for the first time) still to come.

A full report to come but early indications are that we have a British leader - Adam Owen.

Five former winners played 1B and all made it through - Chris Ferguson, Joe Hachem, Greg Merson, Greg Raymer and Ryan Riess. Hachem's son Daniel also progressed, with more than double the chips of his more famous father.

Looks like the TV coverage tonight is from 1:00am to 5:30, no Hot Dog Eating Contest to get in the way tonight though I see this is getting a repeat during the day but the poker isn't. Priorities BT Sport/ESPN, priorities!


To start today
None, but it is Day 1C of the main event and the Salute to Warriors resumes.

I wish I hadn’t done that.

Utterly bewildering, isn't it?

What's worse, there's a video of it. I'm not posting it here. YouTube is the friend of those who are stern of stomach.

I've now had time to look over the full list of those who've made it through from Day 1B

Event 73 - $10K MAIN EVENT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP NLH, Day 1B of 10, 3250 entries so far


I mentioned before that Adam Owen was the Day 1B chip leader, in fact it's a British 1-2 as Gary Blackwood has bagged the second biggest stack.

Several other GB players with very healthy stacks - Carsten Hansen lies 11th, Thomas Drinkwater is 16th, Yudhishter Jaswal lies 34th and Jan Eric Schiwppert is 39th.

Furthern down, some GB names I've picked out include David Maudlin, Ben Dobson, Joel Isla, Harry Lodge, Alex Goulder, Nicholas Marchington, Conor Beresford, Leo Worthington-Leese, Sam Razavi, Roberto Romanello, Fraser McIntyre and John Duthie and there's plenty of others among the 1416 qualifiers.

From outside the UK, the winner of Event 44, Ash Moshe sits in third spot with Allen Kessler just two spots further back. Barry Hutter, fresh from his FT earlier on today bags more than three times his starting stack while final tablemate Olivier Busquet is also just over that mark.

Former Main Event FT'er John Hesp won't be repeating that feat, as the colourfully attired player from Bridlington was eliminated, as were recent bracelet winner Anthony Zinno, both the Ott twins, Mike Sexton, Pierre Neuville, Ben Dobson and Sam Grafton.

I think you might have missed one Charidimos Demetriou who finished day 1a with 252,000

I believe this is none other than one time near Blondepoker investor Harry.

GL to him if it is!

Be amazing if it was. Not seen or heard of him for a good few years.

Using the name Charidimos Demetriou there's no recent activity on THM, though that could mean anything due to GDPR;

If we use the name most of us know him by though, there's some recent activity, including in Australia, which would make sense;

Seems harsh.

Probably just mucking around.
