WSOP Event #49 $1.5K PLO8 Day 2

Seventy players came back to day 2 who weren’t going to cash in the top 90, but only four PLW players fell before the money bubble. Nine cashed on Day 2, and Portland’s Joseph Haddad is still in the running for a bracelet, as one of the 21 players coming back for Day 3, after doubling up in a crucial all-in preflop hand against John Monette.

WSOP Event #50 $10K Limit Hold’em Day 2

Terrence Chan (BC) is 7th of 11 players remaining in this contest. With 241K, he’s near the median chip stack, though that’s different in a limit game. In 11th place, Washington’s Ian Johns has one big bet remaining.

WSOP Event #51 $3K NLHE 6-Max Day 1

Gareth Struivig De Groot already cashed in one 6-Max event this year, and he leads the pack of PNW players (along with two other British Columbians) going into Day 2 in 13th place in this event. 285 of 1,043 entrants made it through Day 1, 108 make the money.
