Event #6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Guns Up


Welcome back to the Rio for the 2010 World Series of Poker, it's time for Event #6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout!

Last year this event attracted 280 runners and Peter Traply ousted Andrew Lichtenberger heads-up for the bracelet and $348,728.

This is the first of five $5,000 events this year, and we anticipate the field to be stellar. So far we've spotted George Lind, Brent Hanks, Jeffrey Lisandro, Sorel Mizzi, Greg Raymer, Barry Greenstein, Erik Lindgren and Rafe Furst floating around the Pavilion Room.

We are set to start at noon Vegas time, and the plan is to play two heats today. Keep it locked to PokerNews for all your live updates from this and every event at the 2010 WSOP!
