(Way) Outside the WSOP – (Day 31 Evening Update)

by , Jun 29, 2008 | 9:31 pm

What’s happening tonight at the WSOP:

Jen and Dan are taking care of the HORSE event, so I don’t need to duplicate their work, but they’re about to return from dinner break 5-handed.

The $2,000 NL Holdem event was won by Brazilian Alexandre Gomes, the first for that country, moving them up big time in the World Standings. Gomes takes home just over $770,000 while Marco Johnson won’t be feeling super with his 2nd place earnings of just over $491,000.

The $1,500 NL Holdem event is down to 40 as they play down to their final table. Among the notables remaining: JC Tran, Men Nguyen, Andy Black, Joe Pelton, Hevad Kahn. Follow their action on the World Series of Poker website here.

Other tournament action, following the leap:

The $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha World Championship drew a field of 381, of which 162 remain. Among the notables on the leaderboard: Josh Arieh, Rob Hollink, Jonas Entin, David Williams, Clonie Gowen, Scott Clements and Jeffrey Lisandro. They can be followed here.

The $1,500 HORSE event drew a record field of 803, of which 784 remain. Pokerati’s own Tom Schneider is the current chip leader, but there’s a long way to go before anyone can think of bracelet glory. Other notables: Sam Simon, Bryan Micon, Phil Hellmuth, Can Kim Hua, Mike Matusow and Richard Brodie. See what happens with Tom or your other favorite players here.

Expect more updates from Dan/Jen, I’ll return in the AM with more exciting stuff…
