Jeff Lisandro

There were a few notable 2009 World Series of Poker eliminations heading into Saturday morning.

Josh Arieh had been among the chip leaders just a few days ago and, oh how the mighty have fallen.  He busted out late Friday.

John Juanda has won nearly $4 million in career tournaments.  He too bid farewell to the 2009 World Series of Poker Friday.

Jason Somerville was listed among the top 10 notables leading early Friday and by the evening he was gone.

Lee Watkinson found himself out Friday as did the last of the Brunson clan, Pamela. 

The real shocker: WSOP Player of the Year Jeff Lisandro has bitten the dust and is on his way out the door.   This occurred right after midnight.

Also a bit of a skirmish involving Phil Hellmuth.

Two players were tangled up in an all-in pot over at Table Hellmuth, pocket kings against pocket eights. The kings held up and the shorter of the two players doubled up. The dealer counted down the stacks and announced, "One hundred forty-three thousand, two hundred." Hellmuth was watching with a keen eye. "One forty-three one? Or one forty-three two?" he asked. "Two," said the dealer confidently. "Show it to me then," said Hellmuth. The dealer broke down the stacks again, and sure enough, Hellmuth was right. "People are gonna get paid the right amount when I'm at the table," he said to nobody in particular. Hellmuth is scowling and a bit grumpy right now. Better stick close by his table.
