6/12/10 – In event 18 – the $2 000 Limit competition – Eric Buchman was victorious late Friday night, taking home a bracelet, the $203,607 main prize and ultimately besting a star-studded entry field of 476 after a thriller of a heads up against Brent Courson, whose second place finish was worth $125 737.
Day 3 saw 10 remaining players start out with Buchman in the lead, chased closely by Hansu Chu. Others in contention included Daniel Quach, Steven Hustoft, William Jensen, Matt Grapenthien, Brent Courson, Matthew Matros, Gary Bogdanski and Flavio Ferrari.
Buchman managed to turn his chip advantage into a winning bracelet just after 9pm Vegas time Friday at Level 26, a well deserved victory by the popular New York pro.
Just five players were left in event 19 – the $10 000 buy-in 2-7 Championship –when InfoPowa went to press at 10.30pm Friday Vegas time. The survivors were all that remained of an ace-laden starter field of 101, narrowed down by Day 2 to 72 and then to just 10 by Friday after a thirteen hour marathon session.
By 10.30pm Friday Vegas, play had reached level 24, with blinds at 12 000/24 000 and the ante at 6 000. Five players remained, led by George Danzer on 825 000, who was followed by David Baker (705,000), Doug Booth (640,000), John Juanda (625,000) and Eric Cloutier (450,000).
