6/24/10 – Please note that beginning today we are running a 2011 WSOP early qualifier. Yes it says 2011. View all the info here.
Jennifer Harman and the ubiquitous Russian player Vladimir Schemelev were among the 15 remaining players from an initial field of 365 when event 40, the $2,500 Seven-Card Razz competition, started its third day Wednesday afternoon; neither were destined to make the final 4.
The chip leader at the start of the day, Canadian Melville Lewis, was still in control late Wednesday night as the contest reached level 24 with just 4 players left standing:
1 Melville Lewis 1,040,000
2 Vladimir Shchemelev 670,000
3 Frank Kassela 625,000
4 Maxwell Troy 340,000
Event #41 – the $1,500 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split 8 or Better started the action with a star-studded field of 847, which had been whittled down to 171 in heavy attrition on Day 1, and was further reduced once play re-commenced Wednesday afternoon on Day 2.
Mike Chappus held the chip lead on 133,400 as play restarted, with Barry Greenstein (83,000) and Spencer Lawrence (79,500) his nearest rivals – all looking for a share in the $1,143,450 prize pool.
By late night Wednesday level 18 had been reached, with 36 players remaining and Igor Gotz in the lead on 285,000 chased by Ryan Karp on 205,000.
