Breaking News

On Saturday at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas, two more bracelets were handed out. Ryan LaPlante survived the Running of the Omaha Donks and won Event #12 $565 PLO. Over in Event #13 $1,500 Razz, Seattle's Rep Porter faced a stacked field and navigated a difficult final two tables to win the Razz bracelet (for his third-career bracelet). Daniel Negreanu advanced to the Razz final table, but he busted in fourth place. Meanwhile, the gossip of the day surrounded the first appearance of disgraced Howard Lederer in the 10K Deuce to Seven Championship.

WSOP 6.12

Would Daniel Negreanu win a bracelet in 2016? There are several prop bets underway whether or not Negreanu would be slapping some bling on his wrist this summer. Well, it was only the second weekend of the WSOP and Negreanu made a deep run with an appearance at the final table of the Razz event. Negreanu was among the final eight in Event #13 $1,500 Razz, however, Rep Porter was the one who survived the tilt-inducing Razz event. Porter won his third-career bracelet and his second Razz title since 2011. Over in the Omaha-centric Donkament, American online exile Ryan LaPlante won Event #12 $565 PLO. LaPlante had moved to both Canada and Mexico over the last five years in order to pursue his career in online poker. It's always good to see an online exile bink a live event in Vegas on American soil.

On Sunday, two more bracelets will be up for grabs. In addition, the Milly Maker heads into Day 2 for the first time as both opening flights combine into one. Event #15 $1,500 8-Game Mixed is down to 11 with Paul Volpe leading the way and Gavin Smith still alive. Event #16 $10,000 2-7 Lowball Championship is scheduled to be a three-day event, but only 34 players are remaining with Alex Luneau in front as the chip leader and two-time champ Nick Schulman still alive. That event should get down to a final table on Sunday night.

Event #12 $565 PLO - Final Results

WSOP E12 LaPlante

Ryan LaPlante and Sean Shah were heads-up for the bracelet with LaPlante ahead nearly 7M to 5.5M. Alas, it was LaPlante's night to win. He picked off Sean Shah in second place to win the largest non-NL tournament in the history of the WSOP with 2,483 runners.

Ryan LaPlante is from Brainerd, Minnesota. Ya, just like in Fargo. The American online poker exile migrated to both Canada and Mexico in order to sustain a living on the virtual felt. He fired two bullets in this re-entry event and took down a $190K score for a $1,130 investment. Darryll Fish finished in eighth place. And yes, Jesus Ferguson cashed in this event, but busted late on Day 2 in 13th place. Jesus has now cashed twice at the 2016 WSOP, the first one he's playing in since 2010.

Event #13 $1,500 Razz - Final Results

WSOP E13 Rep Port

All hail Rep Porter! The Seattle pro is the Razz Master. He won his second-career Razz bracelet (furst one in 2011) and his third overall bracelet since 2008. Porter faded a final table that included 5 bracelet winners. Daniel Negreanu made the final table, much to the delight of his legion of fans and much to the dismay of his legion of haters. Danny Boy had a few side bracelet bets (plus fantasy implications for pros/amateurs across the board). Alas, he had some deep penetration, but busted in third place.

Fabrice Soulier cashed in 14th place and German soccer pro Max Kruse finished in 11th place. David Benyamine bubbled off the final table in ninth place. Shaun Deeb was the first player to exit the final table. Another runner-up finish for Belgium. Pierre Neuville busted in second place last night and two-time bracelet winner Michael Gathy was bounced in second in Razz. Dan Weinman from Georgia busted in seventh place, but he became the first player to cash in four WSOP events this summer.

Two-time champ Nick ‘TheTakover' Schulman, Jason Mercier, Anthony Zinno, Danny Boy, and Jesse Martin. Oh, and Howard Lederer is still alive. Public Enemy No. 1 in the poker community, Howard Lederer, played in his first event and barely made the cut for Day 2. He's 33/34 overall. Only the top 15 places pay out, so this event will pop the money bubble sometime on Day 2.
