Event #26: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

The Bubble Approaches

[user252447] • Ниво 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

The players are very close to the money with 171 places paying out, so we are expecting a cautious start from some of the short stacks as they wait for big cards or hope to creep into the money, while the bigger stacks exert pressure and use the approaching bubble to chip up where they can.

It’s sure to be a tense and dramatic first level here.


Moving Day at WSOP's Event #26

Welcome to Day 2 of Event #26: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em. On Day 1 we saw 1,594 entries narrowed to 178 by day's end, just seven away from the money.

Mark Dube was the overnight chip leader, stacked at 160,300. Dan Smith (132,200) is right on his heels, thanks to a massive double in the night's final level of play. Other notables looking to cruise into the money and beyond are Ryan Welch (101,000), Mike McDonald (81,900), and Scott Clements (75,100). Also, we should not forget about Phil Hellmuth who bagged 34,600. We will see early in play today if Hellmuth can add to his record 102 WSOP cashes.

While golf's U.S. Open and the World Cup are both just starting today, it's "moving day" in Event #26 and we will keep our eyes on the amateurs with a dream, as well as the pros looking to increase their clout in the poker world. Between "fores" and "gooooaaaaaaalllls," be sure to tune in for some "check-raises" and "all ins" from some of the world's best on the felt.

PokerNews' Live Reporting Team will be on hand to bring you Day 2 action starting at 1 p.m. local time today, so come back then as we find out together who makes the final day of Event #26.
