The action was back underway at 2:00 PM as Mel Judah moved on to the next tournament after losing to the set of Aces held by Jeff Lisandro. Then the tournament director moved over to the table Sam Grizzle was playing at and put him in the penalty box. We don't know what happened, but Sam seemed to be an unhappy camper from the start of today. Michael Mizrachi also busted out of the tournament. He was followed by Eli Elezra, Sam Grizzle (no details), Gary Benson, Robert Goldfarb, Chris Reslock, David Levi, Fabrice Soulier, Jason Mercier, Dutch Boyd and John Cernuto in 11th place.
When Day 2 was finished, there were 8 players left that will move on to the final table. Here are the names and chip counts:
Day 3 -- Final Table
These notes on the final table are from the WSOP:
The 2009 World Series of Poker $1,500 buy-in Seven-Card Stud championship is Jeffrey Lisandro. Lisandro�s trademark is a black fedora, which he commonly wears at the poker table. Prior to playing poker full-time, Lisandro was a real estate investor. With this victory, Lisandro has sealed his reputation as one of the world�s top Seven-Card Stud players. He won his previous gold bracelet two years ago playing Seven-Card Stud. He also finished ninth in this year�s ($10,000 buy-in) Seven-Card Stud World Championship, which concluded last week. Lisandro collected $124,975 for first place.
The defending champion from 2008 was Michael Rocco. He finished 12th in this event, which was the second-best defending champion performance within the past two years. Thang Luu successfully defended his title this year in the Omaha High-Low Split event, and Rocco came closest among the remaining 71 gold bracelet winners -- since the start of the 2008 WSOP.
Lisandro earned a wire-to-wire victory at the final table. He maintained a decisive chip lead throughout the nearly five-hour finale. The final hand came when Jeffrey Lisandro made a diamond flush on seventh-street against Rod Pardey, Sr., who made a straight.
Six players in WSOP history own two gold bracelets in Seven-Card Stud. They are Johnny Moss, Bones Berland, Marty Sigel, Ted Forrest, Mel Judah, Rod Pardey, Sr. and Men "the Master" Nguyen.
