Ivey comes into this WSOP looking for bracelet #9
We would first like to apologize for our hiatus. Other obligations have pulled us away from the maintenance of the website, but we are back in the swing of things. A lot has happened since we left and the World Series of Poker is in full swing. Already in the first 15 events we have seen Andy Bloch win his long-awaited bracelet, Brian Hastings make his first cash and win his first event at the same time, Isildur1 make his first appearance and first cash in the WSOP and Phil Ivey make another final table. These are just a few headlines from the exciting start to the series.
We expect the action to heat up even more as we move closer to the $1,000,000 buy in “One Drop” event, and eventually the Main Event. We will once again be keeping you posted on the happenings in the poker world with recaps of all the exciting WSOP action!
What to be on the lookout for tomorrow:
- Phil Ivey makes another day 2 in the $10,000 PLH event #17.
- A star-studded day 2 in the Razz event #18 will include Phil Hellmuth among the chip leaders.
- Viktor Blom will likely continue his quest for a bracelet in the $1,500 NLH event #19
Joeingram1 is running like the sun
Up until recently, Joe “joeingram1” Ingram was well known for his endurance prop bets. He has played 50k hands in a day and recently earned almost 700k vpps in just under 3 monthsto obtain sne status. He accomplished this by making a full time move to plo from nlhe. Since then, he has quickly climbed stakes from the .50/1 tables to the nosebleeds he is playing at now. Formerly known as a rakeback grinder, he managed to accumulate 50k in loses at the tables through his first 4.3 million hands played with all of his earnings coming from rakeback. Since then however, things have changed. This year Joey has sent his graph into a sky rocket, profiting over 400k at the tables. The mass multi-tabler has throttled it back and now table selects the 10/20-100/200 games and is rarely caught playing below those levels. This transition occurred after some quick coaching from nosebleed player Brian Hastings. It is unlikely Brian thought his student would so quickly become a fellow player in the nosebleed games. While Joey’s game is much improved, he is also running like God lately and has profited almost every day he has played it seems. It will be interesting to keep an eye on him and see how he handles his first downswing, which will inevitably come at some point. Until then we can only watch in jealousy and see if Joey can make a run toward a top hat on ptr. (top hats are earned at the 1 million profit mark) Yesterday alone Joey made 70k playing in the 25/50 and 50/100 plo 6max games. He is back online as we speak and trying for another big day. We will keep you updated here on BeTheNuts if there is any new, exciting news to report.
