2008 WSOP Day 26: Woo-ing a bracelet win

David Woo

Five down, two more to go for the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em events in the 2008 World Series of Poker. This time it was David Woo topping a tremendous field of more than 2,700 players to earn the gold bracelet.

Other action on Monday included the start of the Seniors World Championship, while 2-7 Triple-Draw Lowball and Mixed Hold'em events played out their second day.

Event 39

When play began in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em final table on Monday, David Woo was in the middle of the pack, but his expectation was that he was going to pull out a win.

"Not to brag, but with these guys I really felt like I was the best player," Woo said in his Michael Binger.

The players who will be back at the Rio to play the final table are:

Name Chip Count
Chris Rentes $132,000
Tony Ma and others.

Play resumes at 2 p.m. in the Brasilia Room at the Rio, and poker fans can follow the action in the Event 42 live updates.

Event 43

There's one more event getting its start today at noon, and it's the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Split Eight-or-Better event.

In 2007 the event drew in 687 players to create a prize pool just shy of $1 million. Lukasz Dumanski took the biggest bite of that by winning the event, but some notable cashers included Jeff Madsen, David Ulliott, Bill Chen, Dario Alioto and Chad Brown.

Check out who's willing to pull themselves out of bed for the noon start of today's event with all the goodies provided by the PokerListings team in the ever-popular, always-entertaining Live Tournaments section.
