Pokerstars chips

Day 9 of the World Series of Poker is now done and dusted and it brought us another dose of high quality action and a first time bracelet winner to boot. Justin Bonomo has already come close to winning a bracelet this year after a runner up finish in an earlier event, yet this time he managed to go one better.

Read about his victory and all of the rest of the action right below.

Event #11 – $1.5k 6-Handed NLHE Day 3 – Bonomo Finally Claims First Bracelet

The first event to be completed on Day 9 of the 2014 WSOP was the $1.5k No Limit Hold’em event. There were ten of the original 1,587 players left in this event on the start of Day 3 and come the end of it there was just Justin Bonomo left standing with a $449,980 payout and his first ever WSOP bracelet.

He beat Mike Sowers heads up after navigating a tough final table that included the likes of Taylor Paur and Todd Anderson.

Event #12 – $1.5k PLO Day 2 – Kolo Leading Final Eight

This event brought us down to another WSOP final table as the 69 survivors from Day 1 had to go back at it again on Day 2. Once the action had come to an end there were eight players remaining with Gregory Kolo holding the chip lead on 633,000.

He will be hoping that he can carry on his momentum on the final day later tonight but will know he still has some tough opponents to get past.

The Current Standings

1st) Gregory Kolo – 633,000

2nd) Kazu Oshima – 425,000

3rd) Dan Goldman – 335,000

5th) David Martirosyan – 266,600

6th) Ahmed Amin – 242,000

7th) Dean Bui – 151,000

8th) Tom McCormick – 137,000

Event #13 – $10k 2-7 Draw Day 2 – Volpe Leads Strong Final 7

The event that had the biggest names on display today was definitely that of the $10,000 buy-in 2-7 Draw event. 36 players had done enough to progress from Day 1 but come the end of another intense session at the tables only seven of them would advance into the final day.

Paul Volpe currently leads the field but a star studded table that includes Brian Rast, Abe Mosseri and PokerStars Team Pros Daniel Negreanu and Jason Mercier is never going to let him have an easy win.

The Current Standings

1st) Paul Volpe – 783,000

2nd) Jason Mercier – 469,000

3rd) Daniel Negreanu – 426,000

4th) Brian Rast – 390,000

5th) Larry Wright – 203,000

6th) John Monnette – 169,000

7th) Abe Mosseri – 162,000

Event #14 – $1.5k Omaha Limit Hi/Lo Day 1 – Raichura Leads After Opening Day

There was just one fresh event that started up yesterday and it was the $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo event. There were 1,036 players that felt they had a chance by entering on Day 1 but after 10 long levels at the felt just 220 of them had done enough to see the next days action.

Kal Raichura had the most succesful day after finishing with 68,100 and he will be looking to increase that advantage once he returns later tonight.
