The World Series of Poker was in full gear over the weekend and many tournaments have ended. Most notably, Scott Seiver won Event #21, a No-Limit Hold’em tournament with a USD 5,000 buy in.
Seiver held off a tough field of competitors. 731 players entered the tournament, and Seiver walked away with USD 755,891 for his first place finish. He also won a WSOP bracelet. Dave Seidman finished in second place, also winning a nice chunk of money, USD 482,372.
Max Pescatori walked away a champion from Event #24, a Pot-Limit Hold’em/Omaha tournament. He defeated a field of 457 players, and won USD 246,471. Kyle Kloeckner finished in second place, winning USD 152,410.
In one of the more anticipated tournaments at this year’s World Series of Poker, some heavy names are still trying to capture a bracelet. The event is the World Championship Heads Up No-Limit Hold’em, a USD 10,000 buy in tournament.
Currently, only four players remain. Vanessa Selbst, who is making quite a name for herself at this year’s WSOP is facing off with Alec Torelli. In the other semi-final match, Kenny Tran and Jonathan Jaffe are battling it out. Jaffe has the chip lead in that match, 1,525,000 to 1,035,000.
Four other tournaments are also in progress, with a World Championship Limit-Hold’em event ready to begin shortly here at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas.
