Card Player's Own Jeff Shulman Among Final 18 in WSOP $3,000 Limit Hold'em Event

Card Player Blogger Victor Ramdin Plays Two Events Simultaneously and Makes Final Day


Jeff ShulmanEntering the final day of play, only 18 remain in event no. 14, a World Series of Poker $3,000 limit hold’em tournament. Card Player’s own Jeff Shulman is still in the hunt and gunning for his first career bracelet, sitting in sixth place overall with 197,000 in chips.

Shulman has 20 cashes and has made four WSOP final tables during his career, including twice in the Main Event, but WSOP gold has always eluded him. Today, he hopes to add the $220,817 first-place prize to his $3,294,894 in lifetime earnings.

Victor RamdinJoining him among the notables in the field is Card Player blogger Victor Ramdin, who managed a high-wire balancing act all day long by playing in two events. Ramdin won his first table in the $1,500 no-limit hold’em shootout event and still managed to build a big stack in the limit hold’em event. He will take 287,000 in chips with him into the final day, where he sits in fifth place.

Other players still in the hunt include chip leader Shawn Keller, who is way out in front of the field with 520,000, as well as Alex Keating, Mitch Schock, Sorel Mizzi, Matt Sterlin and Dmitry Gromov.

Card Player will pick up all of the live action with the start of the final table, so be sure to check back later today as we play down to a champion. Here’s a look at the remaining players and their chip counts.
