WPT Championship Main Event

Day 2 Completed

There are around 210 players left in the WPT Championships. Action will resume at Noon on Tuesday. Stay tuned for official end of day chip counts.

Roland de Wolfe is the unofficial chipleader along with Phil Hellmuth, Anna Wroblewski, and Sammy Farha who are all close to the top.

The Third Time's a Charm

For the third straight day, when a player has drawn a card to determine the number of hands to be played at the end of the day, it has been a 3.

So every table will play three more hands and then be finished for the day.

22 Tables Remaining

...and we await the interesting Bellagio-End-of-the-Evening ritual, where they draw to see how many hands each table will play to end the evening's play.

3 more hands it is!

Stan Fulton Doubles Up

With 68,000 in the pot, Stan Fulton moved all in for 150,600, and his opponent thought for a while before calling with {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}. Fulton showed {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}, and they were off to the races.

The flop came {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}, but the {5-Diamonds} on the turn gave Fulton a flush draw and a lot more outs. The river card was the {A-Spades}, and Fulton made a pair of aces to win the hand and double up to about 369,000 in chips.

Denny Crane

We have heard it three times today at the end of a hand, a tall fairly cock-sure player says "Phil Hellmuth."

Lady Maverick was seen exiting the Fontana Room. She was not happy after her Jacks were outflopped by 5-5. Her opponent's set sent her to the rail.

Eric Hershler Eliminates David "Chino" Rheem

With the final board showing {K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Spades}, David "Chino" Rheem moved all in for about 25,000, and Eric Hershler thought for a few minutes. After a while, Rheem said, "If you're thinking this long, I want you to call." Shortly after that, Hershler called, showing {J-Spades}{9-Diamonds} for jacks and fours with a king kicker. Rheem mucked as he was eliminated from the tournament.
