WSOPE Events 3 & 4 – Two Bracelets In Reach

WSOP chips

In another hectic day of poker action at the World Series of Poker Europe we saw another two events get just one more day away from revealing the latest bracelet winners. One event has just two players remaining and another will see the final table of six played out later today.

Take a look at our brief report on the two events, where you can see which players are agonisingly close to securing a bracelet.

WSOPE Event #3 – €5,300 Mixed Max Day 3

The third event of the series was the Mix Max event which was actually supposed to finish up with four players going into the final day, yet the other eliminations happened so quickly that the four remaining decided to play out the first set of heads up matches.

This has left just Dan O’Brien and Darko Stojanovic remaining, with their heads up battle set to start in an hour with O’Brien holding the chip lead with 1,594,000 chips.

The action on Day 3 lasted just eight hours and saw the eliminations of 14 players from the 16 that started the day. Among them were Shannon Shorr and Phil Ivey who will now be targeting other WSOPE events to try and claim a bracelet.

The Final Two

1st) Dan O’Brien – 1,594,000

2nd) Darko Stojanovic – 507,000

Event #4 – €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha Day 2

The fourth event of the World Series of Poker Europe so far saw Day 2 of the Pot Limit Omaha event. Each of the survivors from Day 1 were back at the tables to pit their wits against each other once more until there were just six of them left to contest the final table a little later on today. Heading that final table will be Juha Helppi after he amassed 227,500 chips to put him the best possible position for a bracelet here in France. Joining him are some big names in Jason Mercier, Jeremy Ausmus and Michael Schwartz so the final table really is going to be a tough one.
