Due to some recent developments here at Rakerace.com (especially the addition of two new rooms, Tiltao and Betfred), as well as in the poker industry (the suspension of the operating license of Full Tilt Poker), we had little time updating the WSOP results. To make up for it, here is our summary of the latest events.
Last year's November Niner Matt Jarvis won the golden bracelet of $5,000 NLHE 6-handed (WSOP #40), cashing $808,538. He bested Justin Filtz heads-up on Event Day 4. They shoved preflop in the last hand:

Jarvis: {#}A {#}8
Filtz: {#}K {#}9

Board: {#}5 {#}3 {#}6 {#}2 {#}3

Event #41 $1,500 Limit Hold’em Shootout victory went to Justin Pechie, who took home $167,060. Although Eugene Katchalov was also seated at the 10-handed final table, eventually it was Pechie and Dale Eberle playing heads-up. They went all-in preflop:

Pechie: {#}K {#}J
Eberle: {#}Q {#}J

Board: {#}K {#}A {#}3 {#}5 {#}7

After playing final tables in 2006 and 2007, Pechie won his first WSOP bracelet this time. The results are as follows:

On Day 4 of Event #42 $10,000 PLO Championship, play continued 4-handed. Finally, Ben Lamb and Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro were left to play the heads-up session that lasted 20 minutes. They had nearly equal stacks when they ran all-in on the {#}A {#}9 {#}3 {#}Q board:

Kelopuro: {#}A {#}Q {#}K {#}7
Lamb: {#}6 {#}5 {#}4 {#}2

River: {#}5

Finishing 2nd earlier in this WSOP in the 3,000 PLO event, a straight gave Lamb his first golden bracelet. The finalists can be seen below.

Only the heads-up remained to be concluded on Event Day 4 of WSOP #43 $1,500 NLHE: Andre Akkari and Nachman Berlin sat back to the final table. After both doubling up more than once, Akkari had a 5:1 lead over Berlin when dealt into the last hand. They shoved preflop:

Berlin: {#}A {#}8
Akkari: {#}K {#}J

Board: {#}K {#}Q {#}3 {#}K {#}5

Akkari won his first (and Brazil’s second in 2011) WSOP bracelet with a three of a kind. Check out the results below.

WSOP Event #44 $2,500 Seven Card Razz was concluded on Event Day 4 with the heads-up, played by WSOP 2008 $1,500 Short-handed NLHE champion Rep Porter and Stephen Su. In the last hand of the 2 hours long session, Su all-in called with his remaining 300,000:

Su: 3-2 / A-4-T-K / Q
Porter: 6-9 / 8-8-2-Q / 4

21 players returned on Day 3 of the $1,000 NLHE event (WSOP #45). Although grinders like Antonio Esfandiari could be found even in the 9-handed final table, eventually Kenneth Griffin and Jean Luc Marais played heads-up. After folding several times, Marais shoved in the last hand and Griffin insta-called:

Griffin: {#}A {#}A
Marais: {#}K {#}6

The neutral board helped Griffin to his first WSOP bracelet ever. You can see the results below:
