With nearly half of the events at the World Series of Poker in the book and one woman, the amazing Vanessa Selbst, winning a bracelet, we might see another woman capturing a bracelet later today.
I Event #29: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em Samantha Cohen, AKA Sam Cohen, is in a very good position to win the coveted gold bracelet and the $536,768 first-place prize. She is currently No. #4 with only 20 players left and sits with 654,000 in chips; average is 436,875. There’s still plenty of notable names left, among them online wizard and November Niner David Benenfield and winner of WPT Grand Prix de Paris Mats Salsberg. Chip leader going into the final day of the event is Jamie Armstrong, who finished runner-up in a WSOP event in 2012.
On her strategy going into day 3, Sam Cohen tweeted, that she will stick with the strategy that brought her so far:
Was gonna strategize going into Day3, but think it's best to stick to what got me this far. So I will just win flips + cooler people. GL Me!

In Event #30 it looks good for Melissa Burr – once again! Burr reached the final table in Event #10: $10,000 Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, where she finish 8th for $51,768. Now she is only 11 players away from capturing her first bracelet in Event #30: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low. But it’s not going to be easy as she is joined by Calvin Anderson, one of the best online MTT players in the world, six-time bracelet winner Ted Forrest and WPT-champion Joe Tehan.
But Melissa Burr seems determined to make it this time:
12 left in this $1500 stud8…. bagged 222k… lets get this bracelet tomorrow!!!!!!
