Brandon Shack-Harris Leads the Unofficial Final Table of the $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Posted 4 days 6 hours ago by PokerNetwork Staff

We reached the unofficial final table on the 2014 World Series of Poker $50,000 Poker Players' Championship, with Brandon Shack-Harris leading the way with just 8 players left in the tournament.

The poker pro from Chicago already won a WSOP bracelet this year and managed to finish in second on Event#18: $10,000 Seven Card Razz and also captured a third place on Event#43: $1,500 Limit Hold'em.

Now he reserved his seat at yet another final table, which means that he has a good chance to get the lead back from George Danzer in the 2014 WSOP Player of the Year race.

Melissa Burr also managed to fight her way to the last day, earning the the title of the first woman ever cashing in this event.

Day 4

Day 4 kicked off with 22 players and Vladimir Shchemelev’s early exit led to a three-table redraw. From there, Ola Amundsgard, David Oppenheim, David Steicke, Gary Benson, and Jason Mercier all busted.

The bubble lasted nearly two hours before Elior Sion exited in a hand of stud hi against Shack-Harris. Robert Mizrachi, Jonathan Duhamel, Matt Glantz, and Todd Brunson all fell shortly after the bubble burst. Duhamel and Glantz were both looking for return trips to the Poker Players’ Championship final table – for Glantz it would’ve been number three.

Australian James Obst was out-kicked with top pair in a hand of no-limit hold’em against Kessler, exiting in 10th place, and the unofficial final table was formed when Scott Seiver dipped out in ninth. Play will resume today at 2 p.m. local time.
