The 2015 World Series of Poker isn’t quite a week old yet and the first installment of the Great Bracelet Race has Phil Hellmuth leading the field in events entered and Day 2s made, but no player cashed or made a final table yet.
Hellmuth entered three events in the opening week: the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em, the Colossus and the $10,000 Deuce to Seven Triple Draw Championship. Hellmuth made Day 2 of the NLHE event and was eliminated before the money. The Deuce to Seven event returns for Day 2 on Monday and Hellmuth is the shortest stack of the 56 returning players with just 4,100.
Daniel Negreanu started his 2015 WSOP campaign in the Deuce to Seven Championship event but was eliminated during Day 1. He tweeted from the table that he was never able to push his chip count above the starting stack and was out after six hours.
Erik Seidel entered the first two open bracelet events on the schedule – the $5,000 NLHE and the $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo events. He busted both events during Day 1 and then spent the weekend away from the Rio and the madness of the Colossus. The decision worked well for him as he got heads-up with Andrew Lichtenberger in the Aria $25,000 High Roller on Sunday. They agreed to chop, leaving some cash on the table for the winner and Seidel fell short and earned $354,000 for his runner-up finish.
Vanessa Selbst only dipped her toes in the water so far in the 2015 WSOP after having only played the Colossus. She didn’t advance past her Day 1 flight, but with three more $10,000 Championship events in the upcoming week, including the Heads Up Championship event, Selbst is primed to turn in some results.
Phil Ivey is believed to still be in Macau following the grand opening of the Poker King Club at the Venetian Macau. Ivey and Tom Dwan were both on-hand for the event and Ivey is rumored to be returning on June 18 according to a tweet by Dan Fleyshman.
