Defending champion Dylan Linde was unable to defend his title due to putting together a deep run in the Main Event; Linde bagged 210,500 going into Day 3 of the most prestigious poker tournament in the world. However, three of players who were at Lunde's bracelet-winning final table last year have bagged for Day 2: Hernan Salazar with 32,000, Damjan Radanov with 192,000, and Scott Abrams with 139,000.

The British old-school was well represented in the field, with Hendon Mob's Barny Boatman bagging 135,500, Tony Kendall advanced to Day 2 with 31,000, while Stephen Morsechi ended the evening with 89,500.

The story of the night however was the prop bet between Shaun Deeb and Ari Oxman. After Oxman moved above 100,000 chips after taking a big pot off Deeb, the five-time bracelet winner Deeb bet Oxman $500 that he would not bag at the end of the night which Oxman accepted.

Oxman raced up the rankings with a high point of 190,000 chips, but soon he was sandwiched between Deeb to his right and Adam Friedman to his left and his chips soon dwindled. After a battle with Thomas Hunt, Oxman was quartered and was down to 18,000 chips.

In the second last hand of the night, Oxman was all in with Deeb but managed to hit a straight to double up and win the prop bet.


Play will resume at 2 p.m. local time onFriday, July 8th in the white section of the Paris Ballroom. There will be ten 60-minute levels with a dinner break for an hour at 8.30 p.m. local time.

As always PokerNews will provide all the latest information that you need to know.

Deeb Versus Oxman for $500 on Second Last Hand of the Night

MikePatrick • Level 15
Shaun Deeb and Ari Oxman
Shaun Deeb and Ari Oxman

Big O

The best side story in Day 1 came to a head on the second last hand of the night as Ari Oxman was all-in versus the man he made the prop bet with, Shaun Deeb, who had the opportunity to eliminate his nemesis and save his $500.

Oxman's last 14,000 chips went in on the {k-Spades}{j-Spades}{7-Hearts} flop with 19,000 more in the middle. Oxman's tournament life and the $500 bet was at risk.

Ari Oxman: {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}
Shaun Deeb: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{9-}{7-Diamonds}{3-Spades}

Deeb held top two pair, while Oxman held open-ended straight and flush draws, and with only one low card on the flop, a scoop was likely.

The turn brought the {q-Diamonds} to give Oxman Broadway and the lead, then the {8-Spades} on the river sealed his survival for the night.

Deeb would actually be at risk on the final hand of the night, but survive with a chop, and he then graciously passed $500 to Oxman before they each bagged up for the night.

Oxman On The Precipice Of Elimination After Being Quartered

ChrisBean • Level 15

Limit Omaha 8 or better

"Call the press!" Shouted Ari Oxman to get the attention of a PokerNews reporter. "I am about to go all-in!"

There were 32,000 in the middle on the flop of {q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and Oxman bet from the cutoff but faced a raise from Thomas Hunt on the button. Oxman made the call.

Hunt bet on the {j-Diamonds} turn and Oxman made the call. The {4-Spades} landed on the river and Oxman bet and Hunt moved all in for 11,000 which was called by Oxman.

Hunt revealed {a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{2-Hearts} for a set of eights and the nut low. Oxman responded, "Well that's unfortunate." As he rolled over {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for a pair of aces and a nut low.

Hunt received three-quarters of the pot and Oxman received the remaining quarter which gives Shaun Deeb the ultimate sweat on his prop bet.

Negreanu Suffers Another Unfortunate Beat

Daniel Negreanu

Pot-Limit Omaha 8 or Better

Joshua Levkov raised in early position and was called by Daniel Negreanu in the small blind and by the big blind.

On the {7-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop, action was checked to Levkov, who bet 15,000, leaving himself just 2,000 behind. Negreanu then raised to 30,000 and the big blind folded.

Levkov put in his last 2,000 and was at risk.

Joshua Levkov: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{k-Spades}{3-Spades}
Daniel Negreanu: {q-Spades}{j-Spades}{j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

Negreanu was well ahead with his top set of jacks, however, not only did the low come in on the {5-Spades} turn to split the pot, the {9-Spades} on the river gave Levkov a flush to give him the entire pot.

Deeb and Oxman Toe to Toe Again

Big O

Shaun Deeb's table recently broke and in a perfect twist of fate, he was re-seated next to Ari Oxman.

Deeb opened a recent pot to 3,000 in early position and was called by Oxman to his immediate left, setting up a potential showdown between the prop-betting pals.

Thomas Hunt then threw a potential wrench in their showdown with an all-in three-bet to 13,500 on the button.

With action back on Deeb, he four-bet for the size of the pot, and Oxman chose to fold to preserve his stack (and potentially his $500).

Deeb was then heads-up against Hunt who was at risk.

Thomas Hunt: [ac{a-Hearts}{j-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}
Shaun Deeb: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Spades}

The board ran out {7-Hearts}{q-Spades}{2-Clubs}{4-Spades}{j-Clubs} giving Deeb the nut low and Hunt the high half of the pot with his jacks and fours.
