2007 WSOP Tournament Updates

:: 2005 WSOP POY and 2006 WSOP ME final table-ist Allen Cunningham took down Event #13 ($5,000 NLH), banking $487,287 and netting his fifth bracelet. The win makes Cunningham only the fifth person to win a bracelet in three consecutive years and the third youngest player, behind Ivey and Hellmuth, to win five WSOP bracelets. Cunningham had to defeat a star-studded final table, including Tony Soprano look-alike Jeffrey Lisandro (second, $294,260), insufferably annoying Humberto Brenes (third, $197,348), Al Krux look-alike Jason Lester (fourth, $132,813), EPT Grand Final winner and WSOP bracelet holder Gavin Griffin (seventh, $58,924), and newcomer Allan Jaffray (ninth, $31,800), who's name is suspiciously similar to CardPlayer's resident shyster Allyn Jaffrey Shulman.

:: Phil Hellmuth guns for bracelet #11 in Event #15 ($1,500 NLH). Phil is stacked second overall with 1,482,000, trailing only Rick Fuller (1,779,000). Also at the final table are Scott Clements (1,232,000), who he battled with for bracelet #10 last year, Morgan Machina (834,000), and Fabrice Soulier (344,000).

:: FOWCP and Pokerati hottie Michele Lewis (in pic below sandwiched between Hellmuth and a napping Brunson), who just this Friday and Saturday attended the WSOP Academy's first ever Ladies Event poker camp, is among the 80+ remaining in the $1,000 NLH Ladies Only Event. She's stacked at 33,000, we think. The chip leader is Kathleen Gliva at 131,000. Defending champ Mary Jones is still strong, sitting with 42,000.

:: And Doyle Brunson (47,100... in chips, not years) looks to make a run at bracelet #11 as well, as he's second in chips in the $5,000 Limit Hold'em Event. Leading everyone is Brandon Wong (56,000). Andrew Prock is third overall at 45,000.
