Notable Information

When the WSOP $10K Main Event resumed last night, the nine players were in good spirits. And they were ready to play, as evidenced by Milos Skrbic’s all-in move on the sixth hand of the night, which led to his elimination in ninth place.

It took only a few more hands for Timothy Su to push his stack and lose to exit in eighth place.

A couple dozen hands later, Nick Marchington made his shove but lost, relegating him to seventh place.

Since the action was moving along so quickly, the WSOP decided to play on until one more person was eliminated or that particular level came to an end. As it turned out, Cai finally put his tournament on the line but busted in sixth place.

Play then stopped with five players and will resume tonight to play down further.

Earlier in the day, the $1,500 NLHE Double Stack played to its conclusion, and Tom Koral won it to claim his second career bracelet. The mixed game specialist was thrilled to win a Hold’em tournament. “It feels great. It feels incredible,” he said, “and it’s sure gonna take a day or two to settle in.”

Koral credits his “constantly wandering” brain for being able to spend so much time analyzing hands and honing in on the game at hand. “It’s the constant analysis of my own play to get me to where I am.”
