(Way) Outside the WSOP – (Day 19)

by , Jun 17, 2008 | 7:13 am

What happened at the WSOP last night while Phil Hellmuth was humble in defeat…

In a table full of well known names, it was online regular Phil Galfond who took down the $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha w/rebuys event, beating Adam Hourani in a heads-up match that lasted over 100 hands. David Benyamine would finish 3rd. Galfond gets to take down over $817,000 and take the WSOP earnings lead over Grant Hinkle by less than $1,000.

The $1,500 NL event winner last night was Vitaly Lunkin, who beat Brett Kimes headsup to win just over $628,000 and the coveted bracelet. Other results from that event can be found here.

Two more final tables were established last night, they can be found on the next page:

The only tournament that started yesterday, $2,500 NL Holdem 6-handed returns with 73 returning for day 2. Alon Shahar is chip leader, Dario Minieri is 2nd, others can be found at the Hendon Mob forum.

It’s two for Tuesday (just like almost every day), starting at noon today is yet another $1,500 NL Holdem event. Last year’s edition drew a field of “only” 2,315 with David Stucke taking down the bracelet. The 5pm tournament today is the $5,000 Stud Hi/Lo 8 or better World Championship. Last year, Eli Elezra won the title (and several large prop bets) over Scotty Nguyen in a drunken heads-up duel in a field of 236.

More from me this evening…
