World Series of Poker -- Day 2 of Event No. 35 ($10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Heads-Up Championship)
Only Eight Players Remain
Only eight players remain in event No. 35 ($10,000 no-limit hold’em heads-up championship) at the 2010 World Series of Poker.
Out of the 256 that started the tournament, a hand full of well-known pros have survived to have the chance at their first WSOP bracelet.
Here are the pairings for the final day:
Vanessa Rousso, the 2009 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship runner-up, has the luxury of playing the most inexperienced tournament player remaining — Ernst Schmejkal. However, it is still anyone’s game with each player carrying over a 960,000 chip stack for tomorrow’s restart at 3 p.m. PT.
Shchemelev opened to 3,000 and Moorman called. The flop came J 9 3 and Moorman checked. Shchemelev bet 4,000. Moorman check-raised to 11,000 and Shchemelev called. The 10 landed on the turn and Moorman led out for 17,200, putting his opponent all in. Shchemelev called and exposed the 10 10 while Moorman tabled pocket threes for a set-over-set situation. Moorman had just one out to eliminate his opponent. That miracle came as the 3 peeled off the deck, eliminating the Russian.
Phil Ivey was more stationary on Saturday on the second day of the heads-up championship. Since his chip stack was still remaining in event No. 33 ($2,500 pot-limit hold’em/Omaha), Ivey asked the tournament staff in the early afternoon if he could play his match before everyone else began round three. The floor approved and Kido Pham agreed to play early. Unfortunately for Ivey he was eliminated by Pham, but as a result he had a simpler schedule than Friday, when he was running deep in three different events.
