The WSOP events are coming thick and fast so, although it has been only four days since the last round up, there have been a further six events reaching their conclusions since then.
In this segment, Allen Cunningham added a fourth Bracelet to his 2001, 2002 and 2005 hauls – well played Sir! Many congratulations also to Warren Wooldridge of London for his third place and over $76,000 in the Limit Hold’em event # 11. There was a good pay day also for Nick Gibson (over $102,000) after coming 6th in the big Omaha game, event # 16, the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha, which had a tremendous showing from the UK and Irish contingent. Last year’s winner, Rafi Amit from Israel, almost repeated the trick, eventually coming fourth; a superb achievement.
