At the time of writing, just 16 players of 261 remain in Event #29, the final table and live stream fast approaching. Mueller will be looking to improve on his 3rd place finish in Event #8, a $2,500 Eight Game Mix, he had already over the 2013 WSOP and quite possibly add a 3rd bracelet to his collection. “FBT” has made at least 10 World Series of Poker final tables to date, coming very close to another title last summer in another $2,500 Eight Game Mix.
Whomever takes this one down will earn nearly $319,000 and the extra bragging rights that come with being a master of not just Hold’em, but a variety of poker disciplines.
By now, poker enthusiasts have to be getting familiar with the live tournament performances of Quebec’s Jason “@bebe_chien” Duval; not only did he made back to final tables in the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em events at Playground Poker Club preceding their World Poker Tour Main events, this past spring he followed up with a 3rd in the $3,000 worth nearly $200,000.
Jason’s at it again, now having made the final table of Event #28, a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em that will be his 3rd cash of the 2013 WSOP no matter what the result. Hopefully, we’ll see Duval claim the more than $521,000 up top.
Looking back over the past few days, we seen Jonathan Duhamel place a respectable 10th in a $5,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Split for $19,788, with Shawn Buchanan finishing just behind him in 13th for roughly $15,575.
In the $1,000 Seniors Championship, Calgary’s Jerrold Jackson narrowly missed the last table with an 11th place finish worth over $40,000, Stouffville’s Kimberly Kilroy finished 17th for over $25,000, while Beaver Bank Nova Scotia’s Timothy McCarthy finished 21st for nearly $20,000.
To wrap up our latest recap, we had yet another top 10 finish; Ontario’s Michael “SirWatts” Watson was defeated during Heads Up play in the “Sweet Sixteen” Day 3 round of the $3,000 Mix Max, his efforts good for $18,657.
Meanwhile, good luck to Greg and Jason as they look to claim what could be Canada’s 7th and 8th bracelets of the summer!
