2008 WSOP Day 11: Amateurs prevail

Greg Mueller narrowly missed his first World Series of Poker bracelet again on Sunday in Event 11, and Vinny Vinh made his presence known in Event 12 but missed a win despite actually showing up to play this time around.

That's just a taste of the action that took place in Day 11 of the 2008 Max Pescatori, James Van Alstyne, John Juanda, Barny Boatman and more.

Play resumes at 3 p.m. today.

Event 17 and Event 18

Today's action brings another shootout event, this time the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout event. In 2007, this WSOP event brought in more than 900 players.

Daniel Negreanu and Thomas Fuller were two of the players who made it to the final table of the event, but it was Don Baruch who took home the top cash prize and the gold bracelet.

Event 17 will start at noon, and at 5 p.m. Event 18, the $5,000 No-Limit 2-7 Triple-Draw Lowball with Rebuys, will begin. Erik Seidel turned in a win in this event last year.
