We've got two gripping updates for you in our WSOP 2010 live updates section - the $50k Player's Championship and $1k NLHE falling under the PokerListings' microscope. There are also two other biggies going on here at the Rio though - and they are proving to be equally fascinating.
Event #4: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha/8
Just 117 remain out of the 818 that entered Event #4 of the 2010 WSOP. They say that the cream rises to the top, and there's a whole whack of cream sitting at the top of this leaderboard.
Last year's $50k H.O.R.S.E. winner David Bach heads the field right now but with 2009 double-bracelet winner Brock Parker, 2007 double-bracelet winner Jeff Madsen, mercurial Irishman Andy Black and of course Mr. Phil Ivey chasing his tail, he will be looking over his shoulder nervously.
Event #5: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em
In the $1.5k NLHE, online supergrinder/semi-retired Shaun Deeb leads the pack with 55k, but a surprising number of big names are poised right behind him.
Lauren Kling, Antonio Esfandiari, Joseph Cada, Eric Liu, Daniel Negreanu, Mark Seif, Scott Seiver and Shannon Shorr are all ready to make Deeb's life hell if they can gain parity.
We're pretty excited at seeing if this tournament lives up to its undoubted potential.
