Event #11 at the World Series of Poker 2012 has come down to the final nine players with Charles Tonne leading the way. There were a number of big eliminations on day two with Sorel Mizzi, Terrence Chan and Shannon Shorr all biting the dust and we were already down 40 by the time the second level began. 117 started off the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha event and whoever ends up winning it can say they’re the first Pot-Limit Omaha champ of this year’s jamboree. Tonne was chip leader coming into the day and managed to hang onto it for much of it. He starts today with a stack of 1,121,000 and Vincent Van Der Fluit sits lurking in second with 951,000. Tristan Wade, a WSOPE bracelet holder, is dangerous in seventh and Tonne will have to keep his wits about him to lead for a third successive day and win the coveted bracelet.
Tom Cage takes the Event #13 lead into the second day with a number of player’s jumping at the bars of his cell to take over. 222 of the 730 that entered the $1,500 Limit Hold’em remain in the running to take a large slice of the $985,500 prize pool. WSOP’s report states that players were indulging in some true gamblin’ drinkin’ and carryin’ on by adding that “a lot of players were enjoying adult beverages” on the first day. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy the WSOP!
