The 411 On The 41st (WSOP): Durrrr And Djk123 Make Saturday Must Logon Railing
July 3, 2021
Two major tournaments right at the end of the preliminary events of the 2010 World Series of Poker, have a very real possibility of giving two of the internet’s top players their first World Series of Poker bracelets, and remarkably both can be watched today (7/3).

One of those top players, Dan “djk123” Kelly, was considered one of the top rookie prospects heading into this year’s WSOP according to many in the poker media, but until Event #52, had yet to reach a final table.  However, with only 6 players remaining in the prestigious $25,000 buy-in, No-Limit Hold ‘em Six-Max event, that’s certainly no longer the case.  In fact, Kelly, despite starting Day 3 of Event #52 as the severe short stack of a final 18 that included top players like Daniel Negreanu, Carlos Mortensen, Justin Bonomo and Isaac Haxton, will now begin Day 4 as the extreme chip leader of a final six devoid of all of the above listed pros, who were each knocked out by the end of yesterday's play.

Kelly, in order to earn the bracelet and a top prize worth $1,315,518, must still get past Shawn Buchanan, Jason Somerville, Mikael Thuritz, Eugene Katchalov and Frank Kassela, who already has two 2010 WSOP bracelets and with the second largest stack behind Kelly, a real chance of earning number three. 

Event #52, the $25,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold ‘em Six-Handed resumes in Vegas today at 2:30 p.m.

Event #55, the $10,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Championship- with 33 players still remaining of a starting 346- is also getting close to conclusion and in this one it is none other than Tom “durrrr” Dwan who leads the field.  Dwan, by the end of last night's play was already in the money as were the other 33 players, however in order to earn his first bracelet, a top prize worth $780,599, and rumored millions in prop bets from many of the top legends in the game, he must somehow hold onto his stack for quite a few hours more, of tough tournament poker with some of the best players on the circuit. 

Among the players hoping to thwart Dwan today are such known names as Jason Mercier, David “Devilfish” Ulliott, Michael Binger, Alexander Kravchenko and the legendary Phil Hellmuth, now possibly only 32 players away from what could be his 12th WSOP bracelet, and his first in a non-Hold ‘em event.

Event #55 begins today a half-hour after Event #52 at 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time, to read the online updates as they come in visit powered by PokerNews.
