With one bracelet given to the winner of WSOPE Event #3 and Event #5 playing its Day 2, the action continued in Paris.
WSOPE Event #3 €5,300 Mixed Max – Day 4
The first event finished up on another hectic day at the felt of the World Series of Poker Europe and was a Mix Match event that had been played out for three days prior to this one. There were just two players coming into the final day after the previous day’s action went so fast, that the players could play on for longer.
Both Dan O’Brien and Darko Stojanovic were those two players lucky enough to do battle for a WSOP bracelet with the former coming in with a 3-1 chip advantage over his opponent.
Again things did not go to form for O’Brien as for the second time in his career he finished one place away from a bracelet after his opponent played well to catch up, pass and then beat him. Stojanovic took home €188,160 along with the bracelet whilst O’Brien will not feel much better despite also earning €116,280.
Got torched heads up. Got unlucky early and then got bluffed in a huge spot. Little unfortunate but just wasn’t my day. Back to the grind.

WSOPE Event #5 €2,200 No Limit Holdem – Day 2
Day 2 in Event #5 started with a bang and was played out at an electric pace in the beginning with there being plenty of high profile eliminations. In fact the tournament carried on at this pace until there were around just 10 players remaining, as those players decided it might be best to tighten up a little bit with so much money on offer. Erik Seidel finished at the top of the only seven players that will progress into Day 3, with him holding an impressive stack of 711,000 chips. Going into the final day with him will be Mike Watson, Roger Hairebedian and Max Greenwood among the rest. In other news, Phil Hellmuth managed to make his 100th World Series of Poker cash after finishing in 29th place for €4,206.
Should be celebrating 100th cash, but instead feeling down cause I lost 50 big blinds in 10 mins to bust! Gonna nap, then play #WSOPE PLO
