Weinberger Doubles Through Danzer



Joe Weinberger{x-}{x-} / {4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Spades} / {x-}
George Danzer{x-}{x-} / {k-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{q-Spades}{9-Clubs} / {x-}

We reached the action on fifth street, where Danzer led out. Weinberger raised, and Danzer tank-called. On sixth, Danzer slowed down, checking to Weinberger, who bet. And Danzer raised, putting Weinberger all in. He called.


The {j-Diamonds} didn't improve Danzer's hand on seventh, and Weinberger doubled to around 150,000 chips.

Charles Kassin Eliminated in 22nd Place ($6,884)



Charles Kassin only had 18,000 chips coming into play today, and on the first hand, he was the big blind. The action folded to Perry Friedman, who called from the small blind, and Kassin raised. Friedman called.

The flop came down {7-Spades}{a-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and Friedman bet enough to put Kassin all in. He called.


"I have a low, and a backdoor diamond draw," Friedman joked.

"Backdoor diamond draw?" Kassin echoed. "Now I'm scared."

Ironically, the {k-Diamonds} on the turn was a diamond, but it wasn't backdoor diamonds that did Kassin in. A second king - the {k-Hearts} - spiked on the river, giving Friedman three kings, and the win.

Kassin was eliminated in 22nd place, and will take home $6,884.

22 Return for Day 3

Jeff Lisandro
Jeff Lisandro

Welcome back to Day 3 of Event 42: $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better where Jeff Lisandro sits atop the counts with 22 players remaining.

Lisandro is seeking a sixth WSOP bracelet, something only 11 other players have accomplished in the 43-year-history of the Series. But the 2009 WSOP Player of the Year will have to negotiate his way through an especially tough field of remaining competitors to reach that goal.

In second position sits Perry Friedman, looking to add a second bracelet to the won he earned in 2002 in a $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Eight-or-Better event. And in third sits a certain poker TV announcer looking to improve on a 12th-place finish in last summer's $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better event, Norman "Beyond Fairly Tale It's Inconceivable" Chad.

Rounding out the top five are two more talented competitors, George Danzer and Yuval Bronshtein, and it doesn't get any easier from there, with Tom Schneider in sixth. Schneider won this same event in 2007, the first of two bracelets he won on his way to winning that year's WSOP Player of the Year.

There's still a long way to go, with lots of small bets, big bets, split pots, quarters, and scoops to go before a winner is found. Join us for all of the coverage about an hour from now when play resumes at 2 PM local time.
