Brandon Shack-Harris won Event #51 $10,000 PLO Championship and prevented Loren Klein from winning a second bracelet this week. Shack-Harris had a sick payday worth $894,300. Meanwhile, on Sunday a couple of big names are very close to winning a bracelet. Andrew 'Lucky Chewy' Lichtenberger is heads-up for a bracelet against Craig Blight in Event #52 $3,000 NL, and Gavin Smith is the chip leader with five to go in Event #53 $1,500 Mixed PLO/8.

Saturday night in Vegas. Three bracelets were up for grabs but only one was handed out. Two events failed to reach a finish line. However, Brandon Shack-Harris shipped Event #51 $10,000 PLO Championship for his second-career bracelet. He beat Reno-cash game specialist Lroren Klein heads-up for the victory. Klein had won a bracelet a week earlier and was trying to join the 2016 Double Bracelet Club.

Meanwhile... two other events reached a final table on Friday, but failed to play down to a champion. Andrew 'Lucky Chewy' Lichtenberger is very close to winning a bracelet. Event #52 $3,000 NL suspended play with two remaining and Lucky Chewy holding a 3-1 lead over Craig Blight. Also, in Event #53 $1,500 Mixed PLO/8 there's still five players to go and Gavin Smith is in the chip leader. Can Gavin top off his epic comeback with a victory? Only four other players stand in his way.

Also, the $50K Players Championship is under way. Scott Seiver bagged up the most chips at the end of the first day and Jason Mercier is still alive. He finished 12/84. This event will be going on over the next several days.

Day 4 began with six players still left in the jungle slugging it out for the bling and nearly $895K in cash. Brandon Shack-Harris was the chip leader when they bagged up at the end of Day 3 and he went all the way to the winner's circle on Day 4.

Chicago's Brandon Shack-Harris defeated Loren Klein heads-up for the win. It marked his second-career WSOP bracelet (he won a PLO title in 2014).
