Only 12 Players Remain Now

We are in the final level of the night, and only 12 players remain now. The latest round of bust outs included John Canter in 15th place, Julie Dang in 14th place, and Ophir Atar in 13th. Atar's final chips went to Jeremy Kottler, who is the new chip leader after that hand, with over 2.5 million

Play will be wrapping up within the hour. Stay tuned to find out of Kottler maintains his chip lead!

Tate Busts Jazayeri in Shocking Fashion

We normally wait until the final table to post specific hand updates, but this runout had to be shared. Former WPT Champion Sean Jazayeri got his final chips in preflop against Ronnie Tate, and Jazayeri was in great shape, holding [Ac][Kh] to the [Ad][Jh] of Tate.

Jazayeri strengthened his lead after the flop came down [Ah][Ks][10s], but Tate could still win with a queen. The [Jd] on the turn meant that a queen would chop, and another jack would win the hand for Tate. Amazingly, the dealer burn and dealt the [Jc] on the river, drawing a huge reaction from everyone at the table.

Jazayeri silently shook his head, but took the beat in stride, wishing the table luck as he headed to the payout desk.

This leaves us with 15 players left, with 90 minutes remaining in the day.

Last Break of the Night in Both Our Events

Time is running out in both our Main Event Day 2 finals, and the High Roller Day 1, as they are each on their final breaks of the evening. The Main Event has 16 players left, after Michael Rossitto busted in 18th, and Roy Chambers in 17th place. Local Bike regulars Said El Harrak and Ophir Atar are current at the top of the chip counts.

In the High Roller, we have 46 players remaining out of the 76 that have registered so far. Brian Mancilla and John Abdol are the chip leaders over there.

Stay tuned to find out who bags the leads in both of these events!

What's Coming Up: Final Day of WSOPC Ring Action

As the title indicates, tomorrow is the final day of WSOP Circuit action here at the Bike, but the series will continue to roll on with a $250,000 Guaranteed Quantum Event, which is also starting up tomorrow.

First, the day kicks off with the final Ring Event, a $40,000 Guaranteed one day event. The buy-in is $250, and registration will be open until 2:20 PM.

Also don't forget that registration for the $3,250 High Roller Event will remain open until the 1 PM restart, so it's still not too late to get into that relatively small field.

Registration will be available until 8 PM, and we will have more Day 1 flights coming for you guys until Saturday evening.
