June 29, 2009

For our Swedish poker readers out there we are happy to tell you that Erik Sagstrom is through to day 4 of the WSOP Event #49 which is the $50K buy in H.O.R.S.E Event. Erik has $1.3 Million in chip going in to day 4 which gives him a second place on the leaderboard.

The current chip leader of the tournament is Vitaly Lunkin from Russia with $1.5 Million in chips. Other players who are still very much in the game are Ville Wahlbeck from Finland and Full Tilt Poker pro Gus Hansen from Denmark.

This year the $50K H.O.R.S.E Event hit an all time low in terms of participants with only 95 players signing up for the event. Some players say that the reason for this is the fact that ESPN decided not to show the event on television this year while others blame the economy.

Out of the original 95 players only 19 are remaining at the start of day 4 and 16 out of these players will make it in to the money which will guarantee a $72.914 pay day.

Thw winner of this tournament will take a bracelet and a cool $1.276.802 for the first prize.
