Day 4 saw 789 players start the day and only 407 finish it to make it to Day 5 with Matt Affleck the chip leader with 1,819,000.

The biggest name to bust on Day 4 was Phil Hellmuth who had to watch is pocket rockets be defeated by a straight. After being dealt A♣ A♠ Hellmuth flat called before the flop from a late position. The flop was J♣ 10♦ 5♣. Kevin Jenkins pushed all-in with 83,000, Hellmuth then re-raised all-in with 110,000 and Jose Manuel Gomez called. Jenkins turned over 9♥ 8♥ for an open-ended straight draw, and Gomez showed J♥ 10♣ for two pair. The turn brought the 7♦ giving Jenkins the straight, and the river was the 3♠. Hellmuth out.

And Chris “Jesus” Ferguson was felted by 6 6 6, which is just a little bit eerie.

But the most unfortunate story of the day belonged to Kia Hamadani, the Main Event bubble boy.

Casino Game of the Week: Cleopatra’s Pyramid Slot

Cleopatra's Pyramid

This week I have been playing Cleopatra’s Pyramid, a 5 reel slot game from Go Casino and Super Slots.

Cleopatra’s Pyramid is a really nice slot machine to play. With it’s classical Egyptian theme featuring Cleopatra, the Sphinx, scarab beetles, pyramids, sarcophagus and more, it has really beautiful graphics, smooth animations, great music and sound effects.

What makes Cleopatra’s Pyramid an exciting slot to play is the multiple bonus features it offers. It has the pretty standard free spins, where you win 15 free spins if you get 3 or more of the scatter symbol (in this case the scarab beetle) anywhere on the reels. But it also gives players the chance to play the bonus game if you can get the pyramid symbol on reels 2 and 4.

Cleopatra's Pyramid Bonus Game

The bonus game in Cleopatra’s Pyramid is a “pick until pop” style off-reels game. You are presented with a pyramid that has 7 levels. You start at the bottom of the pyramid, where there are more stones, and you have to pick one to reveal either an amount of money or an asp (a snake) that will end the bonus game. You progress up each level of the pyramid, and your chances of winning decrease, until you either make it to the top or hit the asp.

I’ve been having moderate success with Cleopatra’s Pyramid, but more importantly it has been a very enjoyable slot to play. If you would like to have go, you can play for free at Go Casino or Super Slots and then once you have the hang of it you can try and win some real money.

WSOP Day 2 highlights

Just like with Day 1, there were multiple Day 2s at this years World Series of Poker Main Event; Day 2a and Day 2b.

Pros heading into Day 3 include Phil Ivey with an impress 346,200 chip stack, David Benyamine with 228,800, Phil Hellmuth with 142,900, and favorite Sammy Farha with a respectable 67,500.

The overall chip leader is Amir Lehavot with 610,500, followed by Peter DeBaene with 465,000 and Day 1 leader Troy Weber with 453,200.

Thusday is a rest day before Day 3 begins on Friday July 10.
