Breaking News

Although the WSOP is headed into the final stretch, it was a rare night at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas when only one bracelet was awarded. Florida businessman David Prociak took down Event #60 $1,500 Stud 8. Prociak faded a tough final table that included bracelet winners Calvin Anderson, Brandon Shack-Harris, and John Monnette. On Friday, a couple more events are playing down to a winner including the popular Tag Team Event #61 $1,000 NL and the conclusion of Event #59 $5,000 NL, which features Natasha Barbour among the final six. She's trying to become the third woman to win a bracelet in an open event at the 2016 WSOP.

Only one player joined the ranks of bracelet winners at the Rio Casino on Thursday night. David Prociak from Florida won his first-ever bracelet in Event #60 $1,500 Stud 8. He recently took up poker and played extremely well considering his final table included online legend Cal Anderson, in addition to bracelet winners John Monette and Brandon Shack-Harris.

Meanwhile, trio of tournaments head into Friday trying to determine a champion. The Tag Team event is down to a final table. Two-time 2016 WSOP bracelet winner Benny Glasser has a team still alive with Adam Owen and Belgium Bart Laybaert, along with other notables such as Gentleman John Gale, Jonathan Little, Doug Polk/Ryan Fee, and Mohsin Charania/Marvin Rettenmaier.

Action in Event #59 $5,000 NL was suspended with six players remaining and Yue Du from China holding the chip lead. German pro Dominik Nitsche is second in chips and Natasha Barbour is third overall. Can she become the third woman to win a bracelet in an open event this summer?

The biggest event on the slate is the PLO High Roller, which has 20 players remaining. First place pays out $1.1M in Event #62 $25,000 PLO High Roller. At the end of last night, Ludovic Geilich bagged up the most chips. The Grinder is second overall and Robert Mizrachi is right behind in third. I don't think they will get down to an overall champion, but it's PLO so you never know if the action goes quick.

Event #59 $5,000 NL - Day 4 and Final Table

China's Yue Du is trying to become the first Chinese player to win a bracelet this year. He's the chip leader with six remaining in Event #59. This 5K event got down to a final table late last night, but only three players busted so action was suspended with six players remaining. German pro Dominik Nitsche is second overall. Natasha Barbour is third in chips. She's trying to become the third woman to win a bracelet in an open event this summer...and she's also attempting to step out from underneath the shadow of her boyfriend, Jason Mercier. Also still left in the hunt... Austria's Ismael Bojang, Canadas Mike Gentili, and Germany's Marius Gierse. Only one American still alive in this event.

First place pays out $800K in this 5K event.
