PNW_WSOP_15 Summer Series Report for June 28

WSOP Event #53 $10K/$1K NLHE Ladies Day 3

This event wrapped up on Day 3. On the Day 1 and Day 2 reports, Parminderjit Mehmi was listed with a hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia but on her cashout she apparently listed herself as being from Tampa, Florida, which isn’t even NW Florida, but doesn’t have an income tax. She placed fifth, wherever she’s from.

WSOP Event #54 $10K PLO Day 3

WA’s Steven Marx picks up his first WSOP cash in ten years, after placing 35th in the Main Event for a quarter million dollars the year Joe Hachem won. Marx missed hitting a flush after the flop and went out in 19th.

WSOP Event #55 $1.5K NLHE DraftKings 50/50 Day 2

WSOP Event #56 $5K NLHE Turbo Day 2

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho resident Kevin MacPhee is the latest PNW player to bring home a bracelet, after a long Day 2. It’s MacPhee’s fifth cash at the WSOP this year, but his first-ever win (he was close just three weeks ago). Lee Markholt (WA) and Shawn Buchanan (BC) were the other two PNW playersa in Day 2; they placed 18th and 34th, respectively.

WSOP Event #57 $1K NLHE Day 1

It’s going to be a sad Day 2 for eight players coming back this afternoon. Out of 278 players left, there are nearly 30 returning to stacks of less than 10BB, and only 270 players get paid. Three of the 14 PNW players are in that red zone. Higher up the ladder, OR’s Kenn Pluard is right behind 2014 Main Event champion Martin Jacobson, in 75th.
