Congratulations to Alan Myerson, Winner of the HORSE Ring Event





Alan Myerson slowly pulled away from Sirous Baghchehsaraie, grinding him down to the point that his opponent was all in preflop in the Hold'em section. Baghchehsaraie was in good shape for a double up, holding [10h][10s] to the [As][3s] of Myerson. However, the flop came down [Ad][Jh][4c], and Myerson stormed out to the lead. No miracle ten came, and the final chips were sent to Myerson.

He till take home $12,475, and his second WSOP Circuit ring. Congratulations Alan!

Myerson Still Leading in the HORSE Heads Up

Sirous Baghchehsaraie mounted a bit of a comeback in the heads up battle, but Alan Myerson has retaken a nice lead as the two players take another break. Myerson has 1.4 million to 700,000 of Baghchehsaraie.

Stay tuned to find out who takes home the hardware!

Cards in the Air: $570 Survivor Tournament

We are ready to get another Survivor Event going here at the latest tournament series at the Bike! Over the last two weeks, we've had two $1,080 Survivor Events that saw 15 people take home $10,000 in cash. Today, the winners will be receiving half of that, $5,000 each.

Registration will be open until 8 PM tonight. Good luck all!

Heads up in the HORSE Event

Alan Myerson has been in control throughout the final table today, and that hasn't changed now, as he just knocked out Brian Schaniel in 3rd place during Razz. He now has a 1.25 million to 650,000 lead over his opponent, Sirous Baghchehsaraie, who has 650,000.

Stay tuned to find out who wins this battle of savvy veteran players!

Myerson Continues to Lead With Four Left

Next out the door in the HORSE final table was Manju Gera in sixth place. She was followed by Valentin Vornicu, who will have to wait for this next ring after busting in fifth place. Local regular Alan Myerson still leads the field, but it is still anyone's game with four left.

Limits: 25,000-50,000

Alan Myerson - 930,000
Brent Boyd - 510,000
Sirous Baghchehsaraie - 350,000
