by , Jun 7, 2008 | 9:36 pm

One of today’s final tables just concluded, event #10 ($2,500 Omaha 8/Stud 8) as Farzad Rouhani ran over the final table, eventually knocking out Tom Chambers in a brief heads-up battle. “Miami John” Cernuto took 3rd. The other final table, event #9 ($1,500 NL 6-max) currently is down to their final 3. Rep Porter is the current chip leader, Devin Porter (no relation) in 2nd, Nathan Templeton 3rd.

The $5,000 NL shootout has their final table, they’ll get underway Sunday at 2pm, and it will consist of:

Greg “FBT” Mueller
Leo Wolpert
Phil Tom
Sirous Jamshidi
Thomas Roupe
Tim West

Event #12 ($1,500 Limit Holdem) is currently in the money with under 60 left in the field. Unfortunately, Tom Schneider is not one of them, recently eliminated in 64th. Vinny Vinh actually returned today, and is currently in the top 10. Other familiar names remaining include Erick Lindgren and Terrence Chan.

Two more tournaments started today, the noon tournament was event #13 ($2,500 NL Holdem). A field of 1,397 is currently under 400, with the winner taking home the curious figure of $666,777. The 5pm tournament was event #14 ($10,000 7 Card Stud World Championship). A compact field of 158 started, with the usual big names and stud specialists in the field. Annie Duke made her first appearance of the WSOP today. One of the updates over at Pokernews mentioned she offered UB hats to the rest of her table. None of them took her up on the offer.

More from me tomorrow…
