Veldhuis, Young talk WSOP $5k Shootout

Lex Veldhuis
Lex Veldhuis advanced to Round 2 in Sunday's $5,000 NLHE Shootout.

The game is so different from a standard NLHE tournament that the Dutch pro says, "comparing it to a No Limit Hold'em tournament is like comparing Texas Hold'em to Omaha."

The key difference, Veldhuis says, is the table draw.

In a shootout format, players compete in a series of single-table tournaments, with the winner of each table advancing to the next round.

The Jonathan Little also numbered among the eliminated.

Young was still heads-up with John Monnette at time of writing.
