Tonight’s goings-on at the WSOP:

The one final table of today is down to heads-up play, as the $2,000 Pot Limit Holdem event is down to Chris Bell and Davidi Kitai. So far during heads-up play, there have been 10 lead changes as they’ve battled back and forth for over 3 hours, covering about 120 hands at this time. Follow along with the live updates at the WSOP website here.

Other action from today at the jump:

Meanwhile, the $1,500 NL Holdem event is down to about 45, filled with many names you probably don’t know. You can see if you can recognize anyone here. One development is that with Barry Greenstein cashing in this event (for 5 points), he moves into 3rd place in the ESPN WSOP Player of the Year standings.

The noon tournament today, $2,500 Limit Triple Draw 2-7 Lowball started with 238 entrants that has already dwindled down to 78 with three more levels of play today. George Lind is the current chip leader, with Raymond Davis, Bill Chen and Amnon Fillippi towards the top of the leaderboard. Further action in this event can be followed here.

The 5pm event $1,500 Mixed Holdem (Limit/No Limit) drew a field of 731 that has been cut in half. Among the leaders: David Pham, John Juanda, Mimi Tran and Todd “DanDruff” Witteles. Learn who’s moving up and who’s moving out here.
