Event #54 No Limit Hold'em ($1000) - Will Jaffe won the bracelet!

Yesterday was held the final duel of the tournament. When the event resumed, the stacks were pretty tight. The American Will Jafe had 5.3 M of chips while the Brazilian was 4.2 M chips.
It is finally Will Jaffe American who has taken away using a very aggressive playing style in this duel.

On the final hand, Campelo pushes all-in with K3o and Jaffe calls without thinking with A2. The flop Q22 gave little hope to Campelo win this hand. Campelo was less than 1% chance of winning this hand. The miracle did not arrive and Will Jaffe won the bracelet and the 500K that went with it!

For Will Jaffe, it was his 3rd Award this year and his first bracelet. It brings the total of his earnings for 2012 to $508,791!

Event #56 of No Limit Hold'em $ 1500 - Rudy Blondeau finished 19th!

This tournament much interested us because Rudy "RuDyBoY X" Blondeau was part of the last remaining players in the tournament!

When the action resumed yesterday, there were still 22 players and Rudy was 20th, shortstack, but still in the race.

Unfortunately for Rudy, his race is stopped the 19th ranked for a purse of $ 18,924. The final table was so close, but it will be for another time!

It was Tomas Junek who has won honors and earned $ 661,022.

For him, this was his first career award and his first bracelet! As "The Most Interresting Man in the World" would have told, Tomas Junek does not often scholarship, but when it does, he won the bracelet!

Event #57 No Limit Hold'em Six-Handed ($10,000) - Duhamel and stock Chartier!

Another tournament that interested us because two members of PokerCollectif were still in the race, i.e. Jonathan Duhamel and Sam Chartier.

Our two Quebecers were unable to access at the final table, but were still stock. Duhamel finished 38th for $ 21,832 and Sam Chartier 29th $ 29,406.

At this stage, there are still 27 players remaining in the race and this is Christopher Brammer who is leader with 1.4 M tokens. When the action resumes today at 16:00 time of Quebec, the blinds will be 5 k / 10K with antes to 1 K.

The winner will leave home with 1, 1 M$

Event #58 Pot Limit Omaha Hi Low Split-8 or Better! ($3000) - Roch Cousineau still in the race!

Once again, 2 Quebec were to follow in this tournament today, i.e. Miguel Proulx and Roch Cousineau. Unfortunately for Proulx, it could not cross that day or even able to qualify for scholarships.

Roch Cousineau meanwhile is still in the race, among the leaders! He is currently 9th on 31 players remaining with a stack of 211K tokens, or almost half of the cheerleader, Felicia Jamil.

We will therefore follow the action of this tournament very closely when he start today at 5 p.m. hour of Quebec.

The winner will be hands on $ 330,277.

Event #59 No Limit Hold'em day has ($1000) - Six Quebecers still in the race!

Note the presence of Phil Ivey in this tournament which is 11th with 50,000 chips!
