Event#9 and Event#11 at the 2010 World Series of Poker

The 2010 world series of poker (WSOP) began slowly with a few events, but this weekend, the World Series of Poker has gone full drive. Six poker events are currently in progress as of June 6th, 2010. Event#9, a Pot-Limit Hold'em event with a $1,500 dollars buy-in is nearing its conclusion.

Only two poker players are left from the total playing field of 650 players. Steve Chanthabouasy and James Dempsey are fighting it out for the bracelet and the first place cash prize of $197,470 dollars. The Seven Card Stud World Championship has reached it penultimate stage and only six poker players remain in contention.

Michael Mizrachi is the main focus in the table, having won the Poker Player's Championship title a week earlier. Mizrachi is currently in 4th place in the overall chip count. So far, one of the larger playing fields in the WSOP was in Event#11, a No-Limit Hold'em with a $1,500 dollars buy-in. More than 2,500 poker players participated in the event and currently, there are 105 players remaining.

The current chip leader is John Nguyen with 364,000 in total chips. Christopher Giddings is in 2nd place with 346,000 in total chips. Sixty-three players remain in contention in the $1,500 dollars buy-in, Limit Hold'em event. Poker pro Jameson Painter is the current chip leader with Kirk Banks coming in 2nd place. The winner of this event will take home $189,870 dollars aside from the WSOP champion's bracelet.

A 2-7 Draw Lowball (No-Limit) event and a No-Limit Holdem tournament both started on Saturday, June 5th, 2010, and are still in their initial stages. Sunday will be an easy day in terms of new events with only a Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8 or Better World Championship tournament beginning.
