Another close one for Fabsoul! Fabrice Soulier missed a bracelet when he busted in third place in Event #21 $1,500 8-Game Mix 6-Handed. The manager of the Paris Aviators from the GPL made another deep run. Last week, he finished in fourth place in the 10K Omaha8 Championship. Fabrice Soulier seems like he's destined to bink one of these this summer... but it wasn't meant to be last night.
Instead, journeyman Ron 'Grumpy' Ware shipped the bling and took down $1145,577 for winning the 8-Game Mixed bracelet. Ware finished in third place in the same event last year and he improved upon his previous high-water mark.
Also, over in the Milly Maker, only 136 players are still alive out of the 7,761-person field. Senovio Ramirez III bagged up the most chips. Elky is still alive, along with Jessica Dawley, Matt Affleck, Shawn Buchanan, Joe Cada, Brian Rast, and Kenny Hallaert.
Event #20 - $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em MILLIONAIRE MAKER - Day 4
$1.2M for first place! It's the penultimate day for the five-day Milly Maker event. In all, 7,761 runners took a shot at this gimmick NL event. Hey, it works! How else could you get a $10.4M prize pool with 7.7K donks to pony up $1,500 when it would be wiser to light money on fire instead? Just kidding. It's all skill right? Just ask Elky who snapped off pocket Aces with pocket Kings. Elky runs so damn good that he made quad Kings. So sick!
Elky is among the notables still left in the hunt. Jessica Dawley had a big stack most of Monday. She's near the top of the leaderboard. Also still alive... Brian Rast, Matt Affleck, Joe Cada, Kenny Hallaert, Ralph Perry, Lucas Orsatelli, Allan Sannier, Jason Strasser, Farzad Bonyadi, Shawn Buchanan
With 136 to go, Senovio Ramirez III is the chipleader going into Day 4.
