Its 11:00am in Vegas and I am sure the news has now reached our European counterparts that none other than Elisabeth Hile AKA BF Lizzie is running golden in the WSOP Main Event. Yesterday was a special day as it was not only day 4 in the Main Event but also Lizzie’s 26th birthday, not to mention Friday the 13th, for the superstitious amongst us. BF Lizzie soldiered into the Rio with just shy of average starting stack and throughout the course of the day was able to build her stack up to an amassing 2,014,000 chips leaving her 6th in chips at the end of Day 4!

Whilst Harald (Lizzie’s boyfriend and BF Event 59 champion) and I stood at the rails cheering Lizzie on we could not help but wonder what Helmuthian Folds would be doing and whether he knew what good shape she was in.
Harald in action
If you have followed Helmuthian Folds on the forum you would have noticed that over the course of a few Betfair LIVE events and one WSOP, HF has developed a special place for Lizzie in his heart so needless to say he was fully aware of her Day 4 triumphs.
HF and Harald nearly came to blows over Lizzie but have now developed their own Bromance!!
Disappointed that he could not be here to recount every check, bet and fold he has now entrusted Harald and I to keep you updated. For the Poker savvy out there and those that know me, don’t worry!! Harald will be recounting poker hands with accuracy that you will not see on PokerNews or any other poker blog.
So follow our blog to show Lizzie support and get the real updates on what goes down in the WSOP Main Event!
Anyone fancy a side bet on levels before she starts sporting stars attire?
Though she is probably a couple of years too late for the ludicrous deals
