Congratulations to Team Full Tilt’s Phil Ivey for his second-place finish in the WSOP’s* $5,000 World Championship Seven-Card Stud tournament.
Ivey narrowly missed out on winning his sixth-career bracelet when he was bested by long-time Seven-Card Stud specialist Chris Reslock in heads-up play. Still, Ivey’s performance earned him a tidy $143,820 in second-place prize money.
Joining Ivey at the final table were Full Tilt Poker’s David Oppenheim who collected $93,060 for third, and Marco Traniello who made his second final-table appearance of the series and who pocketed $19,458 for eighth.
It was another big weekend for Full Tilt Poker pros at the World Series of Poker. Leading the charge was Greg Mueller as he took second place in Event #11, a $5K No-Limit Hold ’em shootout, cashing for just under $300K. Team Full Tilt’s John Juanda finished in seventh place, just narrowly missing out on the final table.
John Cernuto also had a big weekend, finishing third in Event #10, an Omaha/7-Card Stud Hi/Lo mixed event. “Miami” John took home more than $85K for his performance. Full Tilt Poker pros also had a strong showing at Event #8, the $10K World Championship Mixed Event, with both Eli Elezra and Jeff Madsen making the final table. Madsen finished seventh for more than $50K, and Elezra took third and over $100K in winnings. Gus Hansen and David Oppenheim both just missed the final table cut, coming in 10th and 9th respectively.
Last but certainly not least, Markus Golser took sixth place in Event #12, a $1,500 Limit Hold ’em tournament, for more than $50K. Erick Lindgren, fresh off winning his first bracelet, came in 10th place and just missed out on making his second final table of the Series.
Congratulations to Team Full Tilt’s Erik Seidel and Full Tilt Poker pro David Oppenheim on making the final table of WSOP Event #14, the $10K Seven-Card Stud World Championship. Seidel, looking for his ninth gold bracelet, finished in fifth place for just over $90K. Oppenheim, who came to the final table as chip leader, was eliminated in seventh place and took home nearly $60K.
