Throughout the summer, PokerGO will bring fans across the globe exclusive access to World Series of Poker final table streams and Poker Central will be following all the WSOP action. Each day, “World Series of Photos” will tell the daily stories from the Rio, so you don’t miss any of the sights of the WSOP.
Event #11 – $1,500 Dealers Choice – 6-Handed
Plenty of players have notched their second-career bracelet through the first full week of the World Series of Poker and David Bach became another double winner last night. After taking down the 2009 $50,000 HORSE World Championship for $1,276,000, Bach claimed another mixed game title last night, earning $119,000 for his $1,500 Dealers Choice – 6-Handed victory. If you want to hear more about David Bach, Poker Central Podcast talisman Remko Rinkema is your go-to source.
Event #12 – $1,500 No Limit Hold’em
She may not have advanced to Day 3 of the $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event but Loni Harwood isn’t someone you can keep from smiling. Why wouldn’t she want to smile either, after starting the year with some deep runs around the country and closing out her spring schedule with a podium finish in the $25,000 SHRPS High Roller. Harwood recorded her second score of the summer in Event #12, which means she’s continued that momentum and no one would be surprised to see Harwood continue to notch big results and big smiles throughout the rest of the WSOP.
Event #15 – $10,000 Heads-Up Championship
He isn’t afraid to smile but there is a reason they call Ryan Riess, pictured top, Riess The Beast. It is because he is usually all business at the table and the former Main Event winner was one of three past champions to advance to Day 2 of the $10,000 Heads-Up Championship. Riess will meet Kane Kalas in Round 3, which is also the Bubble Round, while 2015 WSOP Main Event champion Joe McKeehen will face Aussie Michael Addamo and Joe Cada, who won in 2009, will face One Drop final table finisher Chris Moore.
Upswing Poker’s Ryan Fee despises tournaments but it looks like he is, uh, having fun in the $10,000 Heads-Up Championship? Sure, we’ll call that Fee’s fun face but regardless of what we call it, this look could potentially haunt the entire field when it is all said and done. Before Fee can start thinking about a bracelet though, he’ll first face Jason Mercier in Bubble Round, with that action streaming at 3:30 PM PT on PokerGO.
