Here is the summary of the 1st July to the WSOP 2011.

Event #48 - Hold'Em no limit to $ 1500 - Simon Charette ends second; victory of Athanasios Polychronopoulos;
After three long days of play, there remained only 4 players who were all about many chips at the dawn of the fourth day of play.

Canadian Simon Charette had a day filled with ups and downs: in less than 40 minutes, it went from leader in chips for shortstack, then double a few times against Peter Ippolito. Unfortunately for Charette, the headsup between Athanasios Polychronopoulos and him will have been to the advantage of Polychrnopoulos.

Simon Charette therefore finished in 2nd place and won $ 404 235, while Polychronopoulos wins first bracelet and $ 650 223

Event #50 - Triple - luck No - Limit Hold'Em $ 5000 - Adam Geyer at the forefront
With 34 players still remaining, the players expected to play a 4th day. And as fact, after playing 10 maximum levels, there are still 4 players.

Two french players who have survived day 2 have unfortunately not been able to repeat the feat yesterday and went down in 20th and 12th place. Vanessa Peng, leader in token the previous day, will have had a day in true Russian fixtures, but will still have been able to reach the final table before losing in 6th place.

At the dawn of the last day of activity, Adam Geyer throne ranked first with 3.7 m, but it is followed very closely by Antonin Teisseire (3.4 m) and Darryl Ronconi (3 m). Eric Froehlich, in 4th place, is a little more away from the head with 2.1 m in chips.

Event #51-Pot - Limit Omaha Hi - Low 8-or-better $ 1500 - Roch Cousineau finished 28th.
The second day of this pot-limit omaha event will have several quick victims, so that the tournament went to the unofficial final table while there are only 10 players.

A single Quebecer took by t day 2 — Roch Cousineau, who started 21st on the 134 remaining players. Cousineau has been able to last for a long time his experience, while it had to bow to the 28th rank yesterday, what brings him the sum of $ 7024.

Players will now return while David Sands has a lead over double on his closest pursuer (Sands a 1.13 m vs. 515 k for Jeffrey Gibralter in 2nd place).

Event #52 - Hold' mixed (limit and no limit) $ 2500 - no chance for Erik Cajelais and Jeff Hakim.
The image of the #51 tournament, things took place quickly in this mixed Hold'em Tournament ' limit Hold'em and no-limit. Jeff Hakim and Erik Cajelais were the only representatives of the Québec delegation to have spent the second day. Unfortunately, neither one nor the other has been able to reach the paid places.

There are only 9 players at the dawn of the third day, while Brandon Meyers dominates outrageously with double the chips of Noah Boeken (2nd place). Matt Matros is in 3rd position. The players returned to the attack at 3 o'clock, hour of Las Vegas, and a winner should be crowned today.

Event #53 - Championship for women Hold'Em no limit to $ 1000 - Geneviève Ghanem (pickpocket) passes to the day 2.

It is the French Celine Bastian which dominates the lot, while she finished the day with 79 k, ahead of American Bing Du to 42.1 k.
