Main Event December 6
Day 1 No Limit Hold'Em (Buy In $10,000)

96 players entered the Main Event at the Showboat, with most paying the $10,000 entry fee, (and a few fortunate online qualifiers who did not pay a dime). This created a prize pool of $931,200. Some of the players seen are John Juanda, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Erik Seidel, John D'Agostino, Bill Gazes, Andy Bloch, WSOP champion Greg Raymer, Lee Watkinson and Surinder Sunar. The goal is to reach 58 players which will go to Day 2. With the low number of participants, only the top 9 will see any money, and first place will see $335,235. Some who went out in today's play were Chris "Jesus" Ferguson and Cliff Josephy. The top 9 chip leaders and chip counts are below:

  1. Chris Reslock 49,075 Chips
  2. Steven Jacobs 41,350 Chips

Main Event December 7
Day 2 No Limit Hold'Em (Buy In $10,000)

58 players sat down for round 2, but the name to watch as in Day 1 is Chris Reslock who is a local Las Vegas resident. He continued the momentum started yesterday and added another 83,000 chips to his stack. Also doing well is Nick Schulman who is the 21 year old that won the title at last months WPT Foxwood event, and is attempting to make a repeat win at this tournament. Others to watch would be John Juanda and Lee Watkinson who are always dangerous at any table. With the fact that only the top 9 get paid, Day 3 will be a exciting day for all involved.

27 players made the cut to move on to Day 3 which means there will be 3 tables for them to play at. Action will begin at 9:00 a.m. (PST) on Thursday and continue until 9 are left for the Final Table. Come back as we will post the results!

  1. Chris Reslock 133,900 Chips
  2. Nick Schulman 87,400 Chips
  3. James Salters 69,500 Chips
  4. John Juanda 65,500 Chips
  5. Alan Schein 55,400 Chips
  6. Daniel Shak 50,900 Chips
  7. Lee Watkinson 40,100 Chips

  9. Roland Israelashvili 34,500 Chips

Main Event December 8
Day 3 No Limit Hold'Em (Buy In $10,000)

We have the 10 players for the final table here at the Showboat which means serious action will take place seeing that only the top 9 will see the money. There will be 10 instead of the 9 because ESPN felt that they wanted to give a little television time to the "bubble boy". (Respect or cruelty, you decide.) John Juanda will have the largest chip stack and with reputation and skills to match, he has to be respected and feared. The winner will receive $335,235 for coming out on top.

  1. John Juanda 213,200 Chips
  2. Nick Schulman 152,100 Chips
  3. Chad Moore 148,900 Chips
  4. Chris Reslock 124,000 Chips
  5. Daniel Tolly 94,400 Chips
  6. John Spadavecchia 81,200 Chips
  7. Daniel Shak 65,200 Chips
  8. Julian Studley 38,800 Chips
  9. "Eric" Panayiotou 33,200 Chips
  10. Mickey Appleman 9,000 Chips

Main Event December 9
Day 4 No Limit Hold'Em Final Table

Local Las Vegas phenom Chris Reslock won the Main Event, beating John Juanda in the process. Chris, who has given an incredible performance throughout the tournament received not only the money, but a freeroll entry into the Tournament of Champions. Chad Moore and Nick Schulman also gave outstanding performances but let's face it, anyone who made this final table got there by playing well and not sheer dumb luck. (And may God bless Mickey Appleman to win some cash in his next tournament.) The winning hand came when both parties went all in after the flop which was 7c 6d 3d, with Chris holding Kd 7d and Juanda having As Kh. Turn card was 6h and the river was 3s and Reslock wins with two pair of 7's and 6's.

  1. Chris Reslock $335,235
  2. John Juanda $186,240
  3. Chad Moore $102,430
  4. Nick Schulman $74,495
  5. John Spadavecchia $65,185
  6. Daniel Tolly $55,870
  7. "Eric" Panayiotou $46,560
  8. Julian Studley $37,250
  9. Daniel Shak $27,935
  10. Mickey Appleman (Bubble boy with no money)
