The New and Improved Casey Kastle

Casey Kastle is one of the most underrated poker players in the game. We say that because it is very rare to actually find him awake during the tournaments that we cover! Kastle is the master of the power nap and can seemingly play his cards in his sleep!

The Kastle who has turned up for Event #1 at the WSOPE has found a new secret though - CHIPS! He has a lot of them and they are seemingly keeping him awake as he just demonstrated by eliminating the newest member of his table Hasan Anter.

Anter raised to 1,600 on the button and Kastle three-bet to 4,600 from the big blind. Anter moved all-in for around 12,000 and Kastle made the call.

So Long Short Stack!

Miguel Tavarez started the day with the shortest stack in the room and unfortunately he couldn't find a way to make his comeback. We just witnessed the following showdown in which he got eliminated.

Miguel Tavarez{A-Spades}{K-Hearts}
Javier Garvia{Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}

The board ran out {6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{8-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and after only 20 minutes of play we've lost five players.

Hellmuth Starts off With a Win

One of the superstars that's still gunning for the first WSOPE bracelet of 2011, Phil Hellmuth, started the second day off with a win. The board read {4-Spades}{6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} when Hellmuth checked from the small blind and his opponent, Dennis Bejedal, checked his option on the button.

The river was the {7-Diamonds} and with around 12,000 chips in the middle Hellmuth announced a 7,500 bet. Very smooth the 11-time bracelet winner threw out the chips, after giving it some though Bejedal folded. Hellmuth is up to 41,000 while Bejedal is getting short, he's got 24,000 left.

Heart and Commitment to The Game

Dominik Nitsche told us that his heart and commitment to this beautiful game is unquestionable after he woke up early (we started at 15.00!) to turn up at Day Three with only 450 chips.

He looked sharp and he acted sharp, moving in during one of the very first hands of the day holding {Q-Clubs} {4-Clubs}. He received one caller holding {10-Diamonds} {2-Clubs}.

Flop: {K-Hearts} {6-Hearts} {7-Diamonds}

So far so good for Nitsche.

Turn: {10-Clubs}


"Queen!" Shouted Nitsche.

River: {Q-Diamonds}

Then in the very next hand Nitsche moved all-in again holding {9-Hearts} {9-Diamonds} and he received two callers. The player on the button was also all-in for 4,375 holding {Q-Diamonds} {5-Clubs} and Freddy Deeb had called in the big blind holding {A-Clubs} {6-Hearts}.

Board: {K-Clubs} {10-Diamonds} {Q-Spades} {J-Hearts} {Q-Hearts}

Deeb had eliminated two players and we assumed Nitsche either went back to bed or to his part-time job working as a cleaner in McDonalds.

Welcome to Day Two of WSOPE Event #2 €2,500 Six-Max Event

Good afternoon and welcome to the best coverage of the WSOPE in the world!

In approx. 40-minutes we will be re-commencing where we left off yesterday, and let's hope we have as much excitement and drama. We are moving locations and will be playing at the Le Criosette Casino Barriere, just a few minutes walk from where we played yesterday.

The plan is a simple one - we either get down to our final table of nine-players of play ten-levels. There will be 20-minute breaks after every two levels and a 60-minute dinner break after four-levels.

Flavien Guennan and Benjamin Pollak are proving that home turf gives people an advantage as they currently top the charts. Other notables still in the hunt are Daniel Negreanu, Vanessa Selbst, Anton Wigg, Marvin Rettenmaier, John Racener and Casey Kastle.
