A look back at Day 21 of the 2011 WSOP: Hellmuth once again a bridesmaid

It was a fairly calm day at the 2011 World Series of Poker as only four tournaments graced the schedule on Monday, but the excitement was once again palpable as Phil Hellmuth reached another heads-up duel in his quest for his 12th bracelet -of course, if you read the title of this article you know how that turned out!

Event #32: $1,500 No Limit Holdem, Day 3

Another day at the 2011 WSOP means there was probably a bracelet awarded in a large-field No Limit Holdem Event! This time it was Kirk Caldwell who would do the honors, winning his first WSOP bracelet and adding to Team Canada’s total which now sits at an impressive four bracelets at the 2011 WSOP.

1.       Kirk Caldwell - $668,276

2.       Ben White - $414,918

3.       Marc McLaughlin - $292,634

4.       Gabriel Morin - $211,353

5.       Dror Michaelo - $154,506

6.       Randy Haddox - $114,304

7.       Rodrigo Portaleoni - $85,556

8.       Kyle Cartwright - $64,788

9.       Alan Stevens - $49,631

Event #33: $10,000 Seven-Card-Stud hi/lo Championship, Day 3

The big news on Monday was Phil Hellmuth once again being denied his 12th WSOP bracelet -and first non-Holdem bracelet-after losing during heads-up play of a $10k Championship tournament. Hellmuth can take solace in the fact that he is now sitting atop the WSOP Player of the Year leader-board thanks to his two runner-up finishes. Here is a look at the final table payouts from the tournament:

1.       Eric Radowig - $442,183

2.       Phil Hellmuth - $273,233

3.       John Racener - $171,122

4.       Ted Forrest - $123,904

5.       David Benyamine - $96,836

6.       Mikhail Savinov - $77,222

7.       Joe Tehan - $62,710

8.       Ali Eslami - $51,750

Event #33: $1,000 No Limit Holdem, Day 2

Just 27 players will return to the Rio on Tuesday to battle for the latest $1k NLHE WSOP bracelet, and with most of the big names over in the $5k PLO event it looks like the streak of first-time bracelet winners will continue -although PKR Poker pro and WSOP Europe bracelet winner Scott Shelley is sitting in 9th on the leader-board.

1.       Michael Souza - 650,000

2.       Robbie Verspui - 602,000

3.       Jemery Kottler - 574,000

4.       Paulus Valkenburg - 552,000

5.       Justin Cohen - 524,000

6.       Alex Findlay - 513,000

7.       Steven Davisson - 419,000

8.       Damon Sandor - 403,000

9.       Scott Shelley - 390,000

10.   Domenico Palesse - 370,000

Event #34: $5,000 PLO 6-Handed, Day 1

A total of 507 players registered for the $5k PLO tournament besting last year’s mark of 460 -although that tournament was played 9-handed. The pros were out in full force for the tourney, and at the end of the day it was former PLO bracelet winner Vanessa Selbst atop the leader-board, with 109 players trailing behind. There is still a lot of star-power left in this tournament so day 2 should be very interesting.
