wsop2012_resultatGregory Mason wins the bracelet in the event #57, Roch Cousineau escapes bracelet closely, Éric Lévesque and Gylbert Drolet, pass to the next day in the event #59, the final table of the tournament's Draw Lowball $ 10,000 and the main event starts today! More details a little further down!

Event #57 No Limit Hold'em Six-Handed ($10,000) - Gregory Mason wins the bracelet!

The final duel of the tournament took place yesterday! Before the action begins, it is Gregory Mason who was leader in chips. It is ultimately who won honors, the bracelet and the 1.1 M $! Keith Lehr so close second for $ 701,757!
For Gregory, it was his first bracelet and his 5th career award. It brings the total of his winnings to 1. $2M.

Event #58 Pot Limit Omaha Hi Low Split-8 or Better! ($3000) - Roch Cousineau escapes little bracelet!

We followed this tournament very closely given that Quebecers Roch Cousineau was leader among the 3 remaining players!
Unfortunately, the Québécois has narrowly escaped it by finishing 2nd in the tournament against opponent Viacheslav Zhukov, who finished 1st and won $ 330,277!
It is the 2nd bracelet that escapes narrowly Cousineau. Whatever it is, Cousineau has $ 305,000 in gains to date in its 2012 WSOP, which is more than respectable!

It will probably review Roch at the main WSOP tournament that begins today!
