Cummings Captures Maiden Crown as Kanai Falls Short

Aaron Cummings won the $1,500-entry Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw 6-Max Event #22 for a $95,981 top prize as players such as Yuichi Kanai, Alexander Wilson and Heather Alcorn fell just short of glory. A total of 13 players started the day but after the former chip leader James Williams busted early, it was anyone's bracelet.

At the final table, the lst remaining previous bracelet winner was Danny Wong but his elimination in sixth by the former WSOP DEaler of the Year Alcorn took care of any chances of a repeat win with six remaining players all potential first-timers.

Alexander Wilkinson busted Sean Yu for $30,800 in fifth place before getting fortunate to do the same to Alcorn in fourth for $43,984. Alcorn was desperately unlucky, losing to Wilkinson's three-outer on the river as her bid to become the first female winner this series.

Wilkinson got unlucky himself to bust in third, needing to fade a deuce or seven on the river but unable to do so, cashing for $64,256 in third place. Heads-up, a long slog ensued for supremacy as Cummings eventually won with a perfect eight-six beating Kanai's ten-eight. Cummings turned to his fans on the rail and informed them of the result, shouting: "We got ‘em!"at the top of his voice!

Jeremy Ausmus Among 16 Survivors in Shootout Event

American poker heroes Jeremy Ausmus, Daniel Strelitz and Scott Ball all featured as three of the 16 players who won their second consecutive shootout tables in the $1,500 NLHE Shootout Event #23. A total of 16 tables - 160 players - kciked off Day 2 knowing they were all guaranteed to win a min-cash of $6,243 but hoping they'd at least survive the day to lock up $15,027 and keep themselves in the hunt for the $305,849 top prize.

As well as PokerGO favorite Ausmus, and important WSOP Fantasy Draft picks Strelitz and Ball, lots of other talent made the final day, with the British $25,000 Heads Up Championship winner Darius Samual just one day - and 15 opponents - away from winning a second bracelet this series, something no-one has been able to manage so far.

Brazilian player Vitor Dzivielevski – the brother of Yuri, who also made the top 10 of a WSOP Event on Day 12 - may yet win his first bracelet, but it wsn't a good day for every famous name as players such as Erick 'E-Dog' Lindgren, Boris Kolev, Julien Sitbon, the WSOP Main Event winer Espen Jorstad, and young hotshot Landon Tice all hit the rail as 16 players prepare for possible victory tomorrow.
