The action should be exciting and often tomorrow as this group of mixed game players continue onward towards WSOP coveted gold.

With this mixed game lineup, the action played quickly throughout the day. Chip stacks fluctuated as all-ins were commonplace early with a no-limit and pot-limit round combined with the unique six-max mix format.

Nunneley Doubles Through Weinman

Pot-Limit Omaha

With plenty of chips in the middle, Daniel Weinman piled his big chips in after the river of a {9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{q-Spades} board. Brian Nunneley called all-in for 18,200 and Weinman immediately asked "do you have queens full?" which is indeed what Nunneley rolled over with the {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{j-Spades}.

Weinman's {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for nines full was no good and he shipped over the double. "I had five-six," Paul Gunness mentioned in table chat.

Perry Green; A True Legend in Poker and Life

Nível 2

Of all those competing today in Event #23: $1,500 Eight Game Mix(6-Handed), one gentleman stands out above the rest, and that is 85-year-old WSOP legend Perry Green!

Perry Green hails from Anchorage Alaska where he lives with his amazing wife of 65 years Gloria. The lovely couple shares 5 children, 13 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren! They are very active in the Alaskan community and avid philanthropists as well.

So, besides all those amazing facts, what makes Mr. Green stand out above the rest when it comes to poker? For starters, his first documented cash came back in 1976 at the 7th World Series of Poker where he came in first place in the Ace to Five Draw for $68,300! Since then, Mr. Green has amassed over $1,100,000 in total cashes which ranks him second all-time in the state of Alaska. Amongst his numerous cashes include an incredibly rare feat where Green finished runner-up in three consecutive $10,000 buy in events (Feb. ‘80, Feb. ’81; 2nd place $10k Amarillo Slim’s Superbowl of Poker; May ’81; 2nd place $10k WSOP Main Event)!

What an amazing poker player and ambassador to the game. A truly legendary human being, we look forward to watching Mr. Green compete in this tournament, as well many more to come!
