Josh Evans Temporarily Grabs Lead at 2007 WSOP Main Event

On July 14, 2007, a 22 year-old online poker player from the state of Texas temporarily grabbed the lead at the World Series of Poker Main Event where top poker players of the circuit are still in contention for the $8.25 million first place cash prize.

Josh Evans captured the top spot with $1.9 million in total chips after winning several big cash pots. In one instance, he flopped to a card hand of 3 tens against an opponent who had pocket aces and in another hand, he made an all-in wager using 3 cards with a value of 2 against an opponent who missed using a straight.

But later on, Evans slipped to third place in the no limit Texas Hold'em poker tournament as Adam White grabbed the top spot with $2.3 million in total chips and Jon Kalmar moved into second place with $2.2 million in total chips.

Poker pro, Gus Hansen, remained in the hunt with $1.3 million in total chips after starting the fourth day of play with $1.4 million in total chips.

Gus Hansen took frequent time-outs from the table to make some notes in the audio recorder in Danish. He commented that the notes will be useful in the near future.

After a grueling play yesterday, fewer than 250 players remained in contention from the initial playing field of 6,358 that began on July 6, 2007. Each player paid the $10,000 buy-in cost to enter the 2007 WSOP Main Event.
