France v Canada In WSOP $10k H.O.R.S.E. Championship (Dwan Finishes In 5th)

Much to the annoyance of railbirds on the sidelines of WSOP Event 37: $10k H.O.R.S.E. Championship, play has been halted overnight with just two players remaining.
Gathered fans made their frustration known as the heads-up battle between Fabrice Soulier (France) and Shawn Buchanan (Canada) was stopped with Buchanan left with just 3.8 big blinds remaining in his stack.
The WSOP 10-level rule was brought in to help players stay fresh over the tournament’s punishing schedule, but the rail believed a slight amount of discretion should have been used as they booed with one spectator shouting out: “This is the stupidest rule ever!”
With the heads-up match resuming tomorrow, Soulier has a 6.29 million stack to
Buchanan’s 910k with the Frenchman having managed to come from behind to take the commanding overnight lead.
Both players are now guaranteed at least $376,458, with a WSOP bracelet and the top prize of $609,130 going to the eventual winner. Up until now Fabrice Soulier has earned $2,591,035 playing live tournaments to Buchanan’s $3,464,867, with neither player having yet won a WSOP bracelet.
In the meantime, players finishing just short of their WSOP aspirations were
Kyle Loman in 10th ($48,436), Max Pescatori in 9th ($48,436), Jacobo Fernandez in 8th ($61,160), Michael Binger in 7th ($78,328),  Matthew Ashton (UK) in 6th ($101,813), Tom Dwan in 5th ($134,480), Daniel Ospina (Colombia) in 4th ($180,750) and Andrey Zaichenko (Russia) in 3rd ($247,799).
High stakes pro and 5th place finisher Tom Dwan has now cashed three times at WSOP 2011 for $225,435. Since 2008, Dwan has now cashed a total of 10 times at WSOP events for $791,470 in winnings.
