Bellagio Update – Will cashes again, Dapo just missed.

December 2, 2007

Congrats to Will for placing 17th out of 231 in Friday’s Event #4 $3000 buy-in NL tourney at the Bellagio 5 Diamond Poker Classic.  He cashed for the second time this series, for a $6495 payday. 

Dapo had the unfortunate luck to bubble in this tournament, but is really starting to build his confidence going into the bigger buy-in tournaments next week and the $15k in about two weeks.

Friend of the PROP team, Francois Safieddine had a nice result in this tournament finishing 6th.  GG guys, keep up the good work.

Bellagio 5 Diamond

November 29, 2007

Quick update – Will Lin cashed in the first event of the Bellagio 5 Diamond Poker Classic going on over the next few weeks.  Event #1 was a $1500 +90 buyin that had 472 entries.  Will finished 44th for $2645. 

Event #2 – Dapo and Will both busted before the money, with Will getting busted to a set over set situation, and Dapo ran into top set with a st8 flush draw and a pair on the flop.

Note: All these fields are notoriously stacked…it’s the Bellagio…anyone who is anyone wants to win these events, and most of the pros are playing the smaller buyins to warm up for the $15k WPT starting in the middle of December.
