More Near Misses for Brits at the 2013 World Series of Poker
The 2013 World Series of Poker has almost hit its halfway point and so far there have been no British or Irish winners. However, there have been several final table appearances and a couple of second place finishes, too.
Last week we created a table that showed all the UK & Ireland players that had cashed in Event 1-17 (you can find that table here) and today we bring you the in the money finishes of our players from Event 18-26.
As you can see from the above table, our players have been racking up the cashes for fun and we have had a number of sweats for that elusive first WSOP bracelet of the summer. Stephen Chidwick finished sixth in Event #20, while James Park came closer still in Event #22 where he finished in third spot.
Matthew Ashton reached yet another final table of a non-Hold'em event when he finished seventh in Event #23. There were three Brits on the final table of Event #24, yet that piece of poker jewellery stayed out of reach. Yorkshireman Gareth Teatum finished eighth, EPT Loutraki champion Zimnan Ziyard crashed out in eighth and Daniel Cascado lost heads-up to finish in second place.
There are still over 30 events to play out and UK & Ireland PokerNews still has high hopes of a British or Irish bracelet before the series is out.
