Three more bracelets were handed out at the Rio Casino on Wednesday night. Johnny World Henningan took down Event #47 $10,000 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball (Limit) Championship to win another bracelet for his fourth career WSOP victory. Johnny World defeated Belgium's Michael Gathy heads-up for the win. Meanwhile, it took four days to determine a champion in Event #44 $1,000 NL, but Steven Wolansky defeated Wenlong Jin in a marathon heads-up battle. Wolansky won his second career-bracelet. Also, Ankush Mandavia took down Event #48 $5,000 NL (30-minute levels). The former economics student from UGA won his first bracelet and $548,139 in cash.

They almost handed out four bracelets at the Rio on Wednesday night in Las Vegas, but one event still had three players remaining when play got suspended. But three more bracelets were handed out. Johnny World got one. Johnny World Hennigan prevented another win from Belgian pro Michael Gathy to win Event #47 $10,000 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball (Limit) Championship. That victory marked four WSOP wins for the former pool hustler.

Florida pro Steven Wolansky quietly won his second career bracelet after needing four days to win Event #44 $1,000 NL.

Also, another economics student won a tournament. Georgia-based pro Ankush Mandavia shipped #48 $5,000 NL (30-minute levels) for his first win and a payday worth $548,139. He also denied Phil Hellmuth another bracelet. The Poker Bart was attempting to win a 15th career piece of bling. He made the final table, but busted in eighth place.

Meanwhile, on Thursday there's still three players left in the hunt for Event #46 $1,500 BOUNTY NL. Ladies Champion Kristen Bicknell is the chip leader with three to go. Can she ship a second bracelet? Two other events will be awarding bracelets as well, so expect three more bracelets winners by the end of a long Thursday night.

Event #44 $1,000 NL - Final Results

WSOP E44 Steve Wo

This event needed extra fourth day to determine a champ! At the start of Day 4, it was down to nearly and even match between Wenlong Jin and Steven Wolansky. However, when the two first squared off, Jin held a 3-1 edge. Wolansky chipped away on Day 3 to pull even. And on Day 4 when the dust settled, Florida-based pro Steven Wolansky stepped into the spotlight as the newest champion. He won nearly $300K for first place.

Great run for Wenlong Jin, who had to settled for second place. The win for Steven Wolansky gave him a second career bracelet.

Oh, in case you were wondering... Jesus Ferguson cashed in this event, which marked his seventh overall cash at the 2016 WSOP.

Event #47 $10,000 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball (Limit) Championship - Final Results

Johnny World WSOP win

It's Johnny World Hennigan's day to rule the world. Former pool hustler took down the 10K Triple Draw Championship for his fourth-career bracelet.

Chris Klodnicki came into the final day as the chip leader with nine to go but he could only muster up a fourth place finish. Belgian pro Michael Gathy tried to win another bracelet, but his run was ended in second place. Yeah, another near-miss for Gathy. Also of note... JC Tran finished in third overall and Abe Mosseri busted in sixth place.

Johnny World gave a great post-game interview and quote: "Twenty years ago, there were shorter fields. And there were only a handful of great players. Now, it's flooded. You might sit down next to someone you don't even know and they are probably great. It's great to compete and there's really nothing like being there at a final table. Winning is like a load off your mind. The worst feeling in the world is walking away from a table and you know they are still playing."

Event #48 $5,000 NL (30-minute levels) – Final Results

WSOP AKUSH wins

Phil Hellmuth went deep, but he could only god as deep as 8th place before his run ended. Hellmuth will have to wait for another shot at a bracelet #15. Jason Mercier went deep, but that too deep. He busted in 30th place. Looks like his hot run is officially over...but I wouldn't count him out during the final stretch of the WSOP... he has at least two more final tables left in the tank.

Meanwhile, Georgia-based pro Ankush Mandavia took down the 5K mini-turbo and faded a field of 524 runners. Mandavia started playing online poker while working on his economics degree at UGA. Chalk up another victory for a business student!
