WSOP 2013 Recent Results – Mueller & Thompson Final Table, Negreanu On A 6 Max Tear

0

With all the excitement of Canadians cleaning up and claiming 7 of the first 29 bracelets, it’s getting a bit fast and furious to give real time recognition to all of the great results. It’s better late than never they say, so here are a few more recent final table finishes may have missed…Greg-Mueller-WSOP

All eyes were on Event #29, a $5,000 H.O.R.S.E with a top prize of $318,955 that had Vancouver’s own double bracelet winner Greg Meuller leading the charge most of the way. A very drawn out Day 3 would find a unfortunate card leaving Greg all but out as the final 4 players bagged and tagged for the evening. A bit disheartened, Mueller somehow still managed not to be the first one out on Day 4, starting with one Big Blind and leaving with $129,600 for his 2nd third place finish of the summer. Already, as was the case in 2012, Greg has won about as much money as accompanies a fair number of bracelets.Jonathan-Thompson-WSOP

Looking to Event #30, a $1,000 No Limit Hold’em, Jonathan Thompson of Deep River Ontario fought his way to a noteworthy final table and 9th place finish out of 2,108 runners, a fine finish good for nearly $25,500.

Event #31 was of the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Split variety, however the top Canadian finisher was still more than a few spots back of the final table; Edmonton’s Sonu Sharma put out our best performance, finishing 26th of 936 for a bit over $7,700.

Daniel-Negreanu-WSOPMeanwhile, the face of poker even many of your grandmothers would recognize is on a tear in the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em Six Max; none other than Daniel Negreanu ended Day 1 play barely behind the chip leader of the 516 player starting field. At the time of writing this article, “Kid Poker” still has a top ten count with the money bubble a few players shy of bursting. 54 spots will pay, with more than $606,000 going to the winner.

We’ll keep it short and sweet for today, but check back with us soon for more updates!

I love the game but am far to social to take it seriously and sometimes give up a little to much information at the table because I enjoy discussing the game, so decided it was safest for my bankroll to take up writing about the game. That way I still get to meet the cool people and opinions on the game, but with a little less risk.
