A look back at Day 27 of the 2011 WSOP: Jarvis wins, POY race and Prop Bets

While it wasn’t exactly a slow day at the WSOP on Sunday, I will use today’s column to update everyone on some of the non-tournament stories taking place at the 2011 WSOP, as well as the usual tournament reporting.

Event #40: $5,000 No Limit Holdem 6-Handed, Day 4

After falling victim to the Hard=Stop Rule Justin Flitz and 2010 November Niner Matt Jarvis returned to the Rio on Sunday, and after a short duel it was Jarvis who would win the event and put his first WSOP bracelet around his wrist.

Here is a look at the final table payouts from the tournament:

1.       Matt Jarvis - $808,538

2.       Justin Filtz - $499,855

3.       Wesley Pantling - $317,136

Event #41: $1,500 Limit Holdem Shootout, Day 3

In the $1,500 Limit Shootout it was youngster Justin Pechie who would not only best the oldest man at the final table in Dale Eberle during heads-up play, but also saw to it that Eugene Katchalov didn’t win his second bracelet of the 2011 WSOP as the poker superstar finished in 4th place.

2011 WSOP Player of the Year Race

With over 40 events completed it’s time to take a look at the POY leader-board, although this time around it will include the WSOP Europe tournaments, so don’t expect these results to remain the same!

Strange Prop Bet involves Antonio Esfandiari and a Railbird

In one of the stranger prop bets in recent memory -not only because it involved a random from the rail, but also because the final tally was only $300-Antonio Esfandiari had a fan first touch Tom Dwan’s hair for 10 seconds, followed by Freddy Deeb’s bald head for the same amount time, and lastly touch Phil Hellmuth for 10 seconds. The man involved, Andrew Chevalier of Rhode Island, earned $100 for each successful mission, and by the end of the proceedings had built up his own rail of over 40 people!
