Event 10, No-Limit Hold'em - Live Updates

Will Durkee is WSOP 2007 $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em Event 10 champ. He overcame Justin Bonomo's huge chip lead at the start of the day to take home the bracelet and more than a half million dollar prize. Sounds like we'll be seeing more of the Pittsburgh native at the 2007 WSOP since he can now afford the buy-ins!

The Goods!

We're gonna give it to you straight, because that's how we do here at PokerListings.com.

First of all, Michael Banducci, who cashed in a couple of events at the 2006 WSOP, has been bounced in fifth. He'll cash $105,884 in this event after his 6-5 hit two pair on a a flop of 5-6-7 and was beaten by Will Durkee's better two pair holding 7-5.

Justin Bonomo was the next to go moving in with K-10 against Will Durkee's pair of sevens. Justin couldn't have liked the 7 on the flop either, but $156,040 for fourth should soften the blow.

Now here's the sticky part. Sources on the other side of the big black curtain tell us, these guys are now heads up. What they won't tell us is who the two remaining players are.

However, the crack team at PokerListings.com has boiled it down to either Hunter Frey, Todd Terry or Will Durkee. You do the math - we'll be there when the curtain comes down and they hand out the gold.

Down to Five!

Two more players are making their way to the cage to pick up cash after they've been ousted

WPT 5th Season Mirage Poker Showdown Champion Stan Weiss was gunned down in sixth when his 8-10 off lost to Justin Bonomo's A-8. A final board of 6 7 4 7 3 sealed his fate.

Weiss picks up $78,020 for his efforts.

Chess champion and pro poker player Walter Brown bowed out in seventh. He moved in with Q-3 but Bonomo's A-J got the best of him. He'll cash $58,515 - not bad for three days work.

Zeejustin in trouble?

When this thing began, it was Justin Bonomo's to lose and, don't look now kids, but he may be doing just that.

ZeeJustin began the day with over $2 million in chips and has been knocked down to $1.3 million.

Hot on his tail is 2005 College Poker Championship fifth place finisher Hunter Frey. Frey took a huge pot from Bonomo holding K-6 when a K came on the flop and runner-runner sixes filled him up. He's got around 60k less than Justin and feeling very confident.

Meanwhile, Bonomo is still waiting to see if he can make magic happen at this gathering.

Busted!

Allrighty then, we begin our delayed coverage of this final table with not one, but two bust outs.

Ronnie Hoffman was the first to go getting it all in the middle with A-Q. Hunter Frey called from behind with A-9 but managed to make trips on a 9-10-9 flop. Hoffman will get paid though - $32,880 to be exact. For a relatively unknown player that's a big paycheck.

Gil George was taken out in eighth when his Cowboys got shot down by Todd Terry's Rockets. The only way to fly. George, another player we don't know very well, will cash $43,190.

Justin Bonomo is sill sitting with more than $2 million in chips, But Hunter Frey is quickly closing in on $1 million in second.

Keep it locked on PokerListings.com!
