WSOPE Day 5, Phil Hellmuth Goes for his 100th WSOP Cash

The 7th Annual World Series of Poker Europe enters Day Five ready to award the series second bracelet and potentially watch a World Series of Poker legend make history.

Event #2, the €1,100 No-Limit Hold’em Reentry, played down to a final table on Monday. The final nine players returned on Day 4 to determine who would walk away with the 2nd gold bracelet of the series and the €129,700 first place prize.

Live streaming coverage of the final table of Event #2, with Dave Tuchman in the booth on a 30 minute delay and hole cards up, is available on the WSOP website.

Event #3, the €5,300 Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold’em, returned for its 2nd day of action with 140 total runners by the end of registration, resulting in a €672,000 prizepool. While American player Matt O’ Donnell entered the day holding the chip lead, all eyes are on 13-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth who entered the day with a healthy chip stack and an eye on his 100th WSOP lifetime cash.

The entrants list for Event #3 reads like a “who’s who” in poker and with less than 40 runners left in the tournament big names like Phil Ivey, Dan O’ Brien, Scott Clements, Mohsin Charania, Jeff Gross, Noah Schwartz and Jason Mercier join Phil Hellmuth in the quest for WSOP gold.

Event #4, the €1,650 Pot Limit Omaha event kicks off today as well. Officials are hoping that they can break last years mark of 206 runners for the event and, in the early going, names like Barry Greenstein, Daniel Negreanu, Michael Mizrachi, Jeff Madsen, Jesse Sylvia and Jonathan Little have all been spotted in the field.
