Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Welcome to Event #23 $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six Handed

2012 WSOP Standard Bracelet

Good morning and welcome to the coverage of the $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six Handed, World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet event. It is Event #23 of 61 and you are in for a treat, because if six-handed action is anything it is fast and furious.

Yesterday was an amazing day for the WSOP with Phil Hellmuth and Phil Ivey both going heads-up for WSOP gold in their respective events. Phil Ivey came up short losing in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em event to Andy Frankenberger but Phil Hellmuth made it bracelet number 12 when he won the $2,500 Seven Card Razz event. Will both poker phenom's be back on the horse for todays event? We sure hope so because the boys are on fire.

Last year this event was a $2,500 buy-in event and it attracted 1,378 players for a total prizepool of $3,134,950. The eventual winner was Ukranian Oleksii Kovalchuk and we are sure he will be back to defend his title when the festivities kick-off at 12:00 PM. Also on the final table last year and sure to be playing again this year are Chris Moorman (3rd), Dan O'Brien (4th) and Will Failla (7th).

So get your behinds into the Brasilia Room at 12:00 PM or watch all of our coverage at PokerNews.
