  • World Series of Poker Event 55 Won By Abe Mosseri

    With the World Series of Poker (WSOP) reaching its final few tournaments, the $2,500 Deuce to Seven Triple Draw came into the limelight and players didn’t fail to disappoint, offering a player field of 258 players who were all trying to get their hands on one of the final preliminary World Series of Poker Winners Bracelets available to them this year.

    The event boasted a huge amount of talent but the person who rose above the rest turned out to be professional poker player and former backgammon player Abe Mosseri from New York.

    The tournament play was based on a fixed limit tournament ruling but this didn’t mean that the play was slow, kicking off in a rapid way and claiming a few casualties after just a few hands. The tournament only needed 6 hours to decide its final table competitors which for a fixed limit style poker game is something that is rarely seen these days.

    Once the final table ot underway, the tournament fell back into its fast pace with Bradley Libson been the first player to see his chip stack turn to nothing, sending him crashing out of the tournament after facing offer against Julie Schneider who had been nursing a low chip count from the majority of the tournament.

    The next player to be sent crashing out of the tournament was author of the poker book ‘Kill Phil’ Blair Rodman. Rodman faced off against John Juanda, bashing heads as they tried to make their plays to indicate that the other was beaten out of the pot. Rodman was the man who was holding the least strong hand at the time of the showdown and was sent packing out of the tournament in fifth place, taking home a cheque for $31,818.

    John Juanda then saw his fate within the tournament sealed s he placed himself in a position that left him behind as the showdown happened. Beening knocked out in forth place won’t offer much consolation in knowing that by losing to four time bracelet winning Nobbi Tanaka. The Pokerstars professional was able to hit a straight, knocking out his opponent and placing Juanda’s name on the cheque for $44,941.

    Julie Schneider, wife of WSOP Player of the Year 2007 Tom Schneider, was the next to see her participation in the tournament come to a close after seeing her stack fall into the blinds and seeing both of her opponents call in a bid to eliminate her from the tournament. With both players looking to build hands to eliminate Schneider it wasn’t a shock when showdown revealed that they have done just that. After nursing a short stack for a large part of the tournament, she will be happy with her third place finish as well as her $66,285 winnings.

    Heads up play was then started and and Tanaka entered into the game with a very slight chip lead. Mosseri managed to grind away with the four times bracelet winner, finally getting over the chip lead his opponent possessed at the time of the start of play, beating him out of the tournament with a great amount of hard work and turning over the strongest hand.
