Joseph Siegel Eliminated in 8th Place ($5,515)

Joseph Siegel open shoved all in from the cutoff for his last 520,000, and action folded around to Cory Waaland, who made the call from the big blind after giving it some deliberation.

Siegel: [Ac][9c]
Waaland: [As][10h]

It was a great call by Waaland, who had Siegel dominated. He kept that lead all the way through, as it came down [3s][5h][Jd][4h][5s], giving Waaland the pot, and making him our huge chip leader with 2.7 million.

WSOPC Event #3 Update: Final Table Photos

The remaining eight players in the $580 No-Limit Hold'em have all agreed to play out the final table tonight. Our main focus will continue to be on Event #2, but we wanted to post the final table photos of this event so that you would know who has made it this far. Tune in tomorrow morning for final results and a winners photo.

Seat 4- Arkadiy Tsinis

Seat 5- Chip Rosenberg
Seat 6- Ryan Rutkowski

Seat 7- John Coon
Seat 8- Valetin Vornicu

Peter Carillo Eliminated in 9th Place ($4,380)

Peter Carillo open shoved his last 375,000 in early position, and he was called by Cory Waaland in late position. Waaland's [Ac][Qd] had Carillo's [Kc][Qc] crushed, and he kept that lead throughout the board of [Qh][2c][7h][Ah][7c].

Deepinder Singh Eliminated in 10th Place ($3,520)

Deepinder Singh was crippled the hand before when his [As][10c] ran into the [Kc][Kh] of James Varkey. On the next hand, he was all in and at risk against three other players. The flop came down [Qc][Js][4h], and Cory Waaland fired out 60,000. George Mosher called, and the turn brought the [4s]. Waaland fired out 80,000 this time, and again, Mosher flatted.

Both players checked the river [7s], and both Waaland and Mosher tabled King-Queen for top pair. They both beat Deepinder Singh, who could only muster up [As][8h], making him the first casualty of the final table.

The bubble has burst in WSOPC Event #2!

John Hulett- Bubble Boy

We came into today needing to lose 11 players to get in the money, and in just over an hour, we have done so. The unfortunate bubble boy was John Hulett, who shoved his final 12 bigs in preflop holding [Ah][4s]. Unfortunately for him, Michael Tzeiler woke up with [Jc][Jd] in the small blind, and made the call to put him at risk.

Hulett paired his under card on the flop, but was never able to improve, as the board ran down [6c][4c][10h][7c][6h], giving Tzeiler the winning hand, and sending the remaining 81 players into the money!
