Kara Scott, Griffin Benger Rocking Into Day 3 of Event #40, Mizzi & King PLO 6 Max
Only hours after Justin Oliver & Daniel Idema added a few more bracelets to Canada’s rising count, our poker talent is at it again; well known player and TV personality Kara Scott has advanced to the final 21 players remaining of more than 2,100 initial entries in Event #40, a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em. She won’t be starting with quite as many chips as Toronto’s Griffin “Flush_Entity” Benger, who will be sitting in 6th to start the day, but Scott will be around the middle of the pack still in contention for the more $525,000 up top.
Meanwhile, in Event #41, a $5,000 Six Handed Pot Limit Omaha, both Sorel Mizzi and Lasell King will be amongst the final 22 players returning for Day 3 and a shot at more than $488,000. Fan favorite Daniel Negreanu also squeaked into the money and late into Day 2, picking up $10,960 for finishing 34th of 400.
Event #42, yet another popular $1,000 No Limit Hold’em with 2,100 entrants popped the money bubble over it’s starting day and has already been reduced to less than 170 players. Amongst the top 10 counts to start Monday’s play will be Winnipeg’s well known Zenni Petros. Along with everyone else, he’ll be trying to get one day closer to a bracelet and first place prize of more than $345,000.
With so much happening at once, we’ll leave you with that for now, be sure to check back soon for more updates on what will be another exciting day of Canadians crushing some WSOP poker.
