Congratulations to David Brookshire, Winner of Event #5


After a back and forth heads up match that saw both players take big leads at different points, we have a winner in the $365 Omaha 8-or-Better Event. That winner is mixed game regular David Brookshire, who defeated Dale Phillips heads up. Phillips held the lead for most of the final table, but will have to settle for $5,120. Brookshire, on the other hand, will be taking home $8,285, as well as his first WSOP Circuit Ring.

Congratulations to Brookshire on his impressive performance, and thanks to everyone who played the event!

What's on Tap: Thursday, December 7th

Tomorrow we have two more ring events starting up at 11:30 AM and 3 PM. To start off, it's the biggest buy-in of the series so far, as the buy-in for the morning event will be $1,125. Registration will be open for the first eight levels, which will all be 40 minutes long. Re-entry is also available in that time frame.

At 3 PM, we are speeding things up with the $365 Turbo Event. All levels in this event will be 20 minutes long and registration will be open until 5:30 PM. This is a one day event, so a ring will be handed out in this event tomorrow night.

It should be one of the biggest days of the series so far, so make sure you don't miss out on it!

Just Four Left in the Omaha-8 Ring Event

Over at the $365 Omaha 8-or-Better Ring Event, there are just four players left, and right now, it's Dale Phillips's ring to lose. He has nearly half of the chips in play, despite starting the final table as one of the short stacks. His other three opponents are Allano Gaviola, John Zaleski, and David Brookshire.

Stay tuned to find out if Phillips can finish it out, or if one of the other three is able to come back!

Congratulations to Lang Lee, Winner of Event #4 ($17,560)


Lang Lee was the underdog throughout the day, starting the final five as the short stack, and starting heads up play with William Wolf at a big disadvantage. However, he never gave up, and after battling back against Wolf, he just completed the comeback on this hand.

After a flop of [10s][7c][5s], Wolf checked to Lee, who bet out 65,000. Wolf check raised to 145,000, and Lee thought for a bit before calling. The [6s] hit the turn, and Wolf moved all in. Lee rechecked his hand, and after a few moments, slid chips in to signify a call.

Lee: [9h][8d]
Wolf: [Jh][9s]

Lee had turned the straight, but Wolf could still win with a river spade of eight. The [5d] came instead, and Lee secured the victory, taking home $17,560, and the ring!

Cards in the Air: $240 Bounty Event

It's time to kick off another bounty side event here at the Bicycle Casino. The buy-in for this event is $240, and each player who enters will have a $100 bounty on their heads.

Registration for this event will be open until 7 PM, so come on down and join us!

Wolf Spikes River to Stay Alive

William Wolf got his final 347,000 in preflop holding [Kh][3h], but he was in rough shape, as Lang Lee woke up with [Ah][Ks]. The flop of [7c][4h][2d] gave Wolf some backdoor options, and the [10h] on the turn was one, as a heart would now do. He wouldn't need it though, as the [3c] came on the river to give Wolf the double up, and make the two players nearly even again.

Lang Lee Has Taken the Lead

William Wolf started heads up play with a hefty lead, but Lang Lee has been battling back during the heads-up battle, and has just taken the lead as the blinds go up to 12,000-24,000. Lee has 800,000 to the 600,000 of Wolf.

Scott Willoughby Eliminated in 3rd Place ($7,725)


Scott Willoughby shoved all in after a flop of [Ah][6c][3c], and William Wolf called to put him at risk. Willoughby had [9h][6d], but he was in rough shape against the [As][5h] of Wolf. Neither player improved from there, meaning Wolf took the pot to get him and Lang Lee to heads up play.

Eli Strickland Eliminated in 4th Place ($5,610)


Action folded around to chip leader William Wolf, and has he has been doing throughout the day, he applied pressure by moving all in against Eli Strickland. Strickland took a look at his hand, and made the call to put himself at risk.

Strickland: [Qc][Jh]
Wolf: [Qd][6h]

Strickland was dominating Wolf, and he extended that lead after the flop came [Ah][10s][4s]. However, Wolf spiked the unlikely [6s] on the turn, and now Strickland needed some help. He wouldn't get it with the [Ac] on the river, and Wolf collected the pot to extend his lead.

With just three players left, Wolf has nearly a million of the 1.4 million in play.

Dustin Stewart Eliminated in 5th Place ($4,155)


Dustin Stewart had been knocked down to the short stack when he shoved all in with [9d][7d], and he was in trouble, as Lang Lee woke up with [As][Qs] in the big blind. Lee would go on to flop top two pair, and Stewart was drawing dead on the turn.

With that, we are down to our final four. William Wolf has opened up a nice lead on the rest of the field, and looks to be a favorite to claim his third WSOP Circuit ring.

Cards in the Air: $240 PLO8/Big O

We keep the mixed games rolling this afternoon with a $240 buy-in PLO8/ Big O mixed event. This tournament has a guarantee of $10,000, and players will be starting with 15,000 in chips. Registration is open until 5 PM, and you can click here for a full structure. Good luck all!

Early Double for Lee

Lang Lee knew coming into the day that he would have to get his chips in early, and sure enough, he did on the second hand of the day. His Ace-Nine held against the Queen-Jack of Eli Strickland, giving him a much needed double up. Despite winning that hand, Lee is still our short stack.
