Day 7: You've got that WSOP feeling

Michael Binger
Too bad, so sad - no bracelet for Binger.

Another afternoon of poker brings two more final tables playing for a winner, a star-studded World Championship Mixed Event and plenty more action at the Rio.

Event 5

Play got under way a little later than planned for the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em with Rebuys event, starting at closer to 3:30 p.m. rather than 3 p.m. However, it has already seen three bracelet hopefuls hit the rail as the final nine play down to a winner today.

The first bust-out was a double one, as both Steve Gross and Jamie Rosen were all-in on Hand 5 of final-table action against Lyric Duveyoung. Neither player had a good enough hand to beat Duveyoung, or the chips to match.

The double bust helped bring Duveyoung closer to the chip leader, Jerry Yang among the busted as well as Freddy Deeb and John Juanda.

Event 10

There will eventually be some Omaha/Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Split Eight-or-Better action at the Rio today as well. The event, with its $2,500 buy-in, is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. PT.

Last year this was Event 5 and it drew 327 players to the tables. Tom Schneider came out on top of that one, and his final table also included Annie Duke, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Chris Bell and David Benyamine.
