2008 WSOP Update: David Singer Grabs First Bracelet, Will J.C. Tran Follow?

Hannah Hilton has spectacular breasts.

Aside from Erick Lindgren's first WSOP bracelet, poker pros are dominating the bracelet count this year. Will the trend keep up today?

Event #3 ($1,500 PLH) - Overlooked by Erick Lindgren's first WSOP bracelet win was very well-respected pro David Singer nabbing his. In a close heads-up battle, Singer defeated Jacobo Fernandez for the title. The $214,131 first place payday pushes Singer's career tourney earnings north of $3.7M. Get full recaps here.

Event #5 ($1,000 NLH + rebuys) - Michael Banducci will take a big chip lead to the final table, stacked at 1,655,000. Alan Jaffray follows with 1,222,000. Former EPT winner and Georgia Bulldog Jeff Williams is fourth with 683,000. And WSOP cashing machine Michael Binger is eigth overall with 186,000. This one just missed a star-studded final 9, as Clonie Gowen, a woman, finished 15th, Daniel Negreanu finished 22nd, Nenad Medic was 24th and John Juanda was knocked out in 27th.

Event #6 ($1,500 Omaha Hi/Lo) - No shocker in this one as The Intense Stare of Scott Clements made the final table and will gun for his third WSOP bracelet in three years. He's fourth overall with 315,000 and our official-pick-to-win-it (OPTWITM). Clements trails big stack Thang Luu (560,000). Get full chip counts here.

Event #7 ($2,000 NLH) - A field of 1,592 ponied up $2k a piece for a first place payout of $550,601. Only 152 remain. Theo Tran, who finished fourth in Event #2, continues a solid 2008 WSOP ending the day as chip leader stacked at 145,800. The spectacularly-breasted J.C. Tran (above) is among the chip leaders with 93,200. Get full chip counts here.

Event #8 ($10,000 Mixed) - 192 runners bought into this highly anticipated tourney which includes about every form of poker. Day 1 wrapped with 89 remaining and some familiar names atop the leaderboard. Last year's WSOP Player of the Year Tom Schneider is big stacked with 142,300. Other big name big stacks include Gus Hansen (119,500), Johnny Chan (97,800), Jeff Madsen (87,500), Tom "durrr" Dwan (86,600), Greg "FBT" Mueller (84,600), Brandon Adams (75,000), and Phil Ivey (69,600).
