A hugely expectant rail will be very disappointed to hear that both Phil Ivey and Viktor Blom were relatively early exits yesterday at the WSOPE Main Event, so much anticipation was building for what looked like a final for the ages. That isn’t going to happen now and what we are left with is still actually a pretty impressive final table by anyone’s standards anyway.
Victory Poker CEO Dan Fleyshman is the man to catch after going on a real surge yesterday, but British hopes are still alive in the form of James Bord and Roland De Wolfe. Little is known of Bord but he has been near the top of the chip counts for several days and came out on top of several key clashes with Blom to get here.
Roland De Wolfe had been quite quietly biding his time for days to go on a last minute smash and grab to get a sizable chip stack, most notably finding aces in time to bust Barny Boatman and Clint Coffee in the same hand. De Wolfe became the 2nd Triple Crown winner last year with a WPT/EPT & WSOP title to his name, tonight he has the chance to become the first ever Quadruple Crown winner should he capture WSOPE gold.
