Most Mondays suck, but in Las Vegas, you could win a WSOP bracelet and fondle a stack of cash. Multiple bracelets were shipped at the 2021 WSOP at the Rio Casino with the $10K Stud Championship coming to an end and Phill Hellmuth leaving disappointed after another epic run fell short of his ultimate goal to win another bracelet to add to his staggering collection.

Event #19 $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship attracted 62 players and a prize pool worth $578K. Only the top ten places paid out. Scott Bohlman, George Alexander, and Daniel Zack cashed but fell short of the final seven.

The final seven in $10K Stud included Anthony Zinno, James Chen, Jose Paz-Gutierrez, Phil Hellmuth, Jack McClelland, Stephen Chidwick, and Jason Gola.

Hellmuth made another final table less than two weeks into the 2021 WSOP during his relentless pursuit of bracelet #16. He went deep in another mixed-game event, but fell short of the mark when his run ended in fourth place.

Bolivia's Jose Paz-Gutierrez took third place, which set up the heads-up finale between Taiwan's James Chen and Anthony Zinno. Chen finished in second place, which paid out $113K.

Zinno banked $182,872 for the victory and his third bling. Zinno won his first bracelet back in 2015 and added a second one in 2019.

Meanwhile, the first Lowball bracelet was up for grabs on Monday. 2021 WSOP Event #18 $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball attracted 253 runners and a prize pool worth nearly $563K. The top 38 places paid out $134,390 set aside to the Lowball champion.

The final seven included Vladimir Peck, Venkata Tayi, Joao Vieira, Aaron Rogers, Brian Yoon, Hal Rotholz, and Carlos Rodriguez. Joao Vieira, a pro from Portugal, busted in third place.

Vladimir Peck edged out Venkata Tayi heads-up for the cash and bling. Peck banked $134,390 for the Lowball win.

Notables who went deep and cashed in Event #18 included Gary Benson, Jason Daly, Brian Tate, Mike Gorodinsky, Johannes Becker, James Woods, Carol Fuchs, Noah Bronstein, Steve Lee, Matt Smith, David Benyamine, Fu Wong, Mark Gregorich, Amnon Filippi, Michael Noori, Benny Glasser, Ben Yu, Randy Ohel, James Chen, Scott Abrams, and Craig Love.

DJ Alexander cut his teeth playing circuit events in Oklahoma, New Orleans, and the East Coast. He finally got a taste of winning gold at the WSOP after a close call in 2017 with a runner-up finish in the Milly Maker.

Event #20 $1,000 Flip & Go No NL attracted 1,240 runners and a prize pool worth $1.1 million. The top 155 places paid out with $180,665 set aside to the Flip champ.

The final table of eight included DJ Alexander, Jason Beck, Jake Schwartz, David Peters, Huy Lam, Corey Bierria, Rok Gostisa, and Fred Goldberg. David Peters saw his deep run end in fourth place, followed by Jake Schwartz in third place. Jason Beck and DJ Alexander were heads-up for the bling. Alexander picked off Beck to win his first bracelet and $180K in cash.

Notables who went deep and cashed included... Vojtech Ruzicka, Gal Yifrach, Kevin Eyster, Dan Wienman, Pat Kelly, Krista Farrell, Elio Fox, Josh Arieh, Nate Silver, Cal Anderson, Sergi Reixach, Adrian Mateos, Mike Gorodinsky, Noah Bronstein, Roland Israelashvili, Christian Harder, Dan Zack, Jacqui Newman, Andrew Kelsall, Will Berry, Felipe Ramos, Ivam Deyra, Maxime Chilaud, Daniel Negreanu, Dylan Lunde, Shaun Deeb, David Williams, Jake Daniels, Ray Henson, Paul Volpe, Jeff Gross, Michael Liang, Harry Lodge, Dustin Dirksen, Taylor Paur, Vuong Dp, Brandon Hall, and Allan Le
