RIP, B oDiddley

What’s going on at the WSOP today while reading Gary Wise’s new blog and Mean Gene’s latest post makes me wonder if I can claim to be a poker pro because I cashed in a $2.20 180-runner SNG on Stars.

Action is underway in the first of two bracelet events that begin today, the $1,500 PL Holdem event. 714 started play today, and just 5 hours in, less than 300 remain. (Payouts can be found after the jump). Play has also just begun in the $5,000 Mixed Holdem event, while day 2 of the $1,500 NL event has reached the money, with eliminations coming fast and furious now that the bubble burst.

Payouts for event #3:

1 $ 214,131
2 $ 136,643
3 $ 82,725
4 $ 67,640
5 $ 55,474
6 $ 43,796
7 $ 34,063
8 $ 26,764
9 $ 19,464
10-12 $ 12,165
13-15 $ 9,732
16-18 $ 7,299
19-27 $ 5,547
28-36 $ 4,574
37-45 $ 3,601
46-54 $ 3,309
55-63 $ 3,017
64-72 $ 2,725

Elsewhere, Australian David Saab won the first stop on this year’s Asian Poker Tour in Malina, Phillippines. More payouts can be found on their website .

Rumors this weekend said that Party Gaming may reach a settlement with the US Department of Justice to pay for past discretions. Rumor has it that it could be as much as $1 billion.

More coming soon…
