H.O.R.S.E. Final Table: Will Brunson Win Bracelet 11?

There is no dead money at the 2006 WSOP $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. final table.

Chipreese_1After a marathon Day 2 that lasted past 9am (PST), Chip Reese, recognized by many as perhaps the best all-around poker player of all-time, will enter final table play tonight at 9pm (again, PST) big stacked with 1.75M. Some interesting sub-plots, if you will:

:: Reese is clearly missing a "big-time" title from his tournament resume. Will this be the event he breaks through?

:: Can Doyle Brunson distance himself from Johnny Chan and claim the all-time bracelet lead just for himself with number 11?

:: Can Phil Ivey capture bracelet number 6, something he just missed doing last week?

:: Does Barry Greenstein suddenly hate impoverished children? If not, how does one explain his lack of final tabling (he bubbled in this one, along with Gavin Smith), which is clearly getting on Chops' nerves, since Greenstein was his first selection in the WSOP fantasy league draft. Kids need food!!! Wiiiiiiiiiinnnn!

Poker Pages actually has a good write-up of all 9 final table contestants, which also includes T.J. Cloutier, David Singer, Dewey Tomko, Jim Bechtel, Andy Bloch, and a very short-stacked Patrik Antonius.

I wish I could tilt you like that in the home game.


Listen dipshit we're not talking about the ME here w/ Reese. The biggest tourney win he had before this was a $5k stud event. When you think Chip Reese you think cash games. Now he has a signature tournament win. You're smart enough to realize this...end of story.


Yes, it will be interesting to see how espn manages to squeeze that heads up in to 4 hands.


he's no longer missing a big title on his resume...chip won the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event, cashing $1,716,000.


So do Brunson's ME victories not count?


Right, back in the 70's + 80's. Against fields of 20. And he still plays some of the major events. This would be his first really big win on that stage.


Reese hasn't been whoring up the tourney circuit like the young guys do--he doesn't need to. Besides, he has a few bracelets to his name.
