PNW_WSOP_15 Summer Series Report for June 20

Sorry for the late report! Late nights, late mornings.

WSOP Event #40 $1K NLHE Seniors Day 2

Despite what the Chip Count says, Seattle’s Alice Parypa is still hanging in with more than 10BB as one of two PNW Seniors still in the game, according to the official EOD2 report. She’s in 41st place out of 41 65 players. Anthony Simpson of Pasco, Washington is the other. They’re guaranteed at least $12K $6.6K each. There’s $613K up top. Only ten of the returning players failed to cash, with 25 making the money. I’d like to take a moment to mention there are two players added to the list below who were listed with California hometowns on the EOD1 report, but in Washington and Oregon on Results.
