Women closing in on WSOP bracelet in Event #25

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jun 16, 2011 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

With 23 players remaining in Event #25, a $1,500 Seven-Card-Stud hi/lo tournament, it would seem that the ladies have their best chance to win their first WSOP bracelet since 2008, considering four of the remaining players are female, and three of those players are very well-known poker pros.

Cyndy Violette, Karina Jett, and Kristy Gazes are all still in contention in the tournament, but the field is definitely stacked with some very experienced poker players including bracelet winner and WPT commentator Mike Sexton, 2010 WSOP POY Frank Kasella, the winner of this same tournament last year David Warga, Tony Ma, and WSOP commentator Norman Chad –Could we possibly see a Mike Sexton vs. Norman Chad heads-up match???

Unfortunately, for the remaining ladies, they are all a bit further down the leader-board than they would like to be, with Gazes and Jett sitting on extremely short-stacks after two days of play. Here is a look at the Top 10 chip-counts heading into Day 3 of the event:

1. Corey Zeidman – 217,500

2. Sean Urban – 208,000

3. Hernan Salazar – 186,500

4. Norman Chad – 179,000

5. Marc Fluss – 156,500

6. Brian Twete – 156,000

7. Chris Viox – 154,000

8. Tyson Marks – 147,000

9. Tony Ma – 144,000

10. Filippos Stavrakis – 139,500
