William Wolf entered the final table as the chip leader, and he never gave up that position, knocking out half of the six fallen opponents today on his way to winning Event #7 $365 Six-Handed No Limit Hold'em. For his efforts, Wolf will take home $14,285, and a WSOP Circuit Ring. It was a well earned victory for Wolf. Play wrapped up for Day 1 early this morning (6:15 AM), and he had to beat the likes of Mike Leah and Rex Clinkscales at the final table to earn his victory. Congratulations to Wolf, and the rest of the players who cashed in this event, and see you tomorrow for more coverage from The Bicycle Casino!

Zeke Ramirez knows a thing or two about winning poker tournaments. Last October, Ramirez bested 7363 other entrants in the $160 Quantum Reload at Hustler's Casino, winning a cool $165,000. If that wasn't enough, he did the exact same thing in December, this time beating out 7,082 players, earning $150,000 for his efforts this time. Well a WSOP Circuit Ring was missing from his resume, but no longer, as he tops this field of 149 players to take home $12,520 in addition to the ring. Congratulations to Zeke Ramirez, winner of Event #6, and be sure to tune back in later for a full winner's report.

Once again, the suspense was all but over when the flop came down [4c][2c][4s], giving Wolf a full house. Rodriguez would need running jacks or kings, and he did pick up the [Jh] on the turn. However, the river wasn't a miracle, coming [9h] to give Wolf the hand, and get us down to three handed.

The tension was all but gone when a six popped in the window, as the flop came [8d][10c][6c]. The board completed [10s] and [8c], and Clinkscales was bounced in 5th place.
Posted at 6:29 PM
The board ran down [Ac][4h][3d][6c][7h], giving Rodriguez the triple up, Bumpas a small side pot, and knocking Tang out in sixth.
On the very next hand, Rodriguez doubled up when his Ace-Ten held against the Jack-Nine suited of Rex Clinkscales, who not long ago, had scored a double up himself through Bumpas.
Did you follow all that? Ok good. We are down to our final five in Event #7!

The flop came down [Qc][4h][10d], and Leah was still looking for help. The [Jh] came on the turn, and Leah could only chop now. The river was the [3c], knocking out Leah and getting up to our official final table.

Monica raised it up to 26,000 from the button, and Zeke Ramirez moved all in for 235,000 total. The bet was for about 80% of Monica's chips, and he tanked for almost two minutes before calling.
Ramirez flopped a flush draw, [8d][4s][3d], bricked the [Qc] on the turn, but got his flush when the [Jd] came on the river.. A few hands later, Eric Velie busted Monica when Velie's [Ah][8c] caught up to the [4d][4c] of Monica thanks to an ace on the turn.
With that , Velie holds a 2:1 chip advantage on Ramirez as they go to heads-up play.

At the moment, Ramirez's ace high was good, but he would still have to fade a bunch of outs from Baghchehsarie. The [9s] came on the turn, keeping Ramirez in the lead, and the [10s] came on the river, giving Ramirez the pot with ace high.
And then there were three!

The board came all low cards, which was no good for Gorman, coming [5s][4s][6d][9s][9c]. The chips were counted down, and Monica had Gorman edged by a bit, sending the young pro out in 5th place.
Posted at 4:12 PM
The board ran down [5c][Jd][3d][10s][7h], and Gorman's small pocket pair held up, giving him the knockout, and sending us to our final five players.

Vornicu raised all in from late position for his last 40,000, and Velie tank called in the big blind with [Kd][Qd]. The board ran pure for Velie until the river, where the [10d] came to give Vornicu a rivered pair. Vornicu clapped his hands and yelled "yes" when he saw the card, and his dream of two rings in a week is still alive.

The hand that did most of the damage came in a three way cooler altercation with Zeke Ramirez and Dan Callaghan. Callaghan was all in for his final 100,000 preflop, and he got two calls from Reinert and Ramirez. The flop came down [Jd][7c][3s], and Reinert moved all in, a bet that was met with a snap call from Ramirez.
The whole table let out a gasp when they saw that the three best hands in hold'em were in play on this hand. Callaghan was in great shape to triple up, while Ramirez was a huge favorite to take down a hefty side pot. The board completed [8d] and [10h], and Reinert lost most of his chips paying off his two opponents.
A couple of hands later, Reinert was eliminated when his [As][3s] couldn't catch up to the [Ah][10h] of Ramirez, drawing an unexpected early end to Reinert's day.
