Poker Tournament » Live Poker Tournaments » World Series of Poker (WSOP) »


Monday, July 20, 2009 | Francis Lee


There was just 64 players left who returned for day seven at the 2009 World Series of Poker main event and the day was scheduled to be played until there was just 27 survivors.  Darvn Moon was the chip leader at the start of play closely followed by Billy Kopp.  Phil Ivey was also well positioned to go deep in the tournament in third place.

Once the cards were in the air the eliminations came at a steady pace with all players guaranteed at least a $100,000 pay day from 63rd place onwards.The notable names to fall early on included Joe Sebok (56th place $108,047), Tom Schneider (52nd place $138,568) and Fabrice Soulier (49th place $138,568).

Dennis Phillips attempt to make back to back main event final table’s came to an end in cruel style when his :ad :kd was beaten by :as :ks after his opponent Rivered a spade flush.  Philips exit in 45th place won him $178,857.  Blair Rodman whose day job is a poker author went out in 34th place ($253,941).  He moved his short stack in with :jh :8c and found himself with a chance up against pocket Fours.  The pocket pair held up as the board blanked out for Rodman.

Play slowed down quite a lot during the last level of play with each level of payout now being worth over $100,000.  The final hand of the day saw Joe Wa5rd going out in 28th place ($253,941) when his :as :kh was beaten by :ah :qc as a Queen fell on the River.

Darvin Moon had continued his good run doubling his chips stack throughout the day ending up on just over $20 million.  The standings were almost the same as when we started the day except Steve Begleiter had taken third spot from Phil Ivey.
