WSOP Day 28: Jennifer Tilly Looking for Bracelet #2 in $1,500 Razz

Jennifer Tilly

Today's Day 28 of the 2019 World Series of Poker will feature six continuing events and two new ones in the $600 Deepstack Championship and the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better.

A big bracelet will be awarded today with the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship down to just eight players with a massive $1,086,967 top prize going to the winner. Dash Dudley enters the action in the chip lead with both former bracelet winners Eoghan O'Dea and Jeremy Ausmus still in contention.

And Jennifer Tilly sits on a sizable stack in the $1,500 Razz with just fifteen players remaining. Can she win bracelet number two?

Here's what's on tap today, in the daily What to Watch For on PokerNews, sponsored by 888poker.


Event #50: Monster Stack - $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Just 49 players remain from the original monster field of 6,035 entrants heading into today's penultimate day of the event. Each of the returning players is guaranteed an $18,462 payout with their eyes on winning the bracelet and the massive $1,008,850 top prize.

The blinds will be at 10,000/20,000 with a big ante of 20,000 when the action resumes at noon PDT today and increase every hour. The action is scheduled to end for the day when just six players remain who will battle it out until one of them wins the trophy in front of a live-streamed audience at CBS All Access in the United States, Canada, and Australia and at PokerGO in the rest of the world.

Event #50: Monster Stack - $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Day 4 Top 10 Chip Counts

Vincent Chauve (22,000,000) is the only player entering today with at least a 100-big blind stack. He is followed by Bryan Kim (17,725,000), Anthony Kazgandjian (15,700,000), Ramiro Petrone (13,900,000), Andre Haneberg (12,725,000), Jonathan Seltzer (12,125,000), Randall Hernandez (11,975,000), Bart Hanson (11,650,000), Benjamin Ector (11,465,000), and Willaim Lorring (9,400,000).

Event #52: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship

The hunt for a sixth bracelet for Day 2 chip leader Daniel Alaei was dashed near the end of yesterday's penultimate day in this event after he bowed out in ninth place for $72,468. Another blind level was played but none of the remaining eight hit the rail and will come back for one final day today starting at noon PDT with blinds at 100,000/200,000 and increasing every hour.

The final eight are each guaranteed a payout of $94,380 with the winner going home with a seven-figure top prize of $1,086,967 and the WSOP bracelet. PokerGO will be broadcasting the action to poker fans around the world on a one-hour delay starting at 1 p.m. PDT.

Dash Dudley

Dash Dudley is in the driver's seat for his first bracelet with a chip leading stack of 6,550,000. Kyle Montgomery is the closest on his tail with a stack of 5,960,000.

With all of the bracelet winners in the field, it is somewhat surprising that just two of the remaining eight have experienced WSOP gold before with Eoghan O'Dea (5,150,000) and Jeremy Ausmus (2,405,000) each winning a single bracelet in the past. Rounding out the final table are James Park (4,995,000), Joel Feldman (3,625,000), Andrey Razov (1,215,000), and Will Jaffe (1,150,000).

Event #53: $800 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack

It comes as no surprise that this event didn't follow the original plan of playing out in two days with it attracting 3,759 entrants to create a $2,678,408prize pool to obliterate the $750,000 guarantee.

A third and final day will be played out today with ten players remaining. Each player will be guaranteed a $31,933 payout with a more substantial $371,203 top prize and a gold bracelet slated for the eventual winner.

Amir Lehavot is the only player of the bunch to have won a bracelet before when he shipped the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold'em Championship in 2011 for $573,46. He sits on a third-place stack of 20,175,000. Lehavot might be better known to poker fans for his third-place finish in the 2013 WSOP Main Event for $3,727,823.

Ahead of Lehavot are Santiago Soriano (27,300,000) and Daniele D'Angelo (21,455,000) with the trio being the only of the bunch over 20 million in chips.

The final day begins at 1 p.m. PDT with blinds at 250,000/500,000 and a big blind ante of 500,000. Blinds will increase every 40 minutes and the day will end when one player is left standing.

Event #54: $1,500 Razz

This event was originally scheduled for four days but today's third day which kicks off at 2 p.m. PDT could end with a player winning the bracelet and the $119,054 top prize with just 15 players remaining. The tournament director already informed players that the schedule is subject to "management's discretion" and that the scheduled plan would be shared before the start of today's action.

Andres Korn enters Day 3 with a chip leading stack of 546,000 followed by Jean Said (469,000), Christopher Kusha (401,000), and Noah Bronstein (358,000).

Scott Clements won this third career bracelet this summer after shipping the $1,500 Dealers Choice for $144,957 and he's is in the hunt for his second this summer and fourth overall with 330,000 in chips. Other former bracelet winners still in contention include bracelet winner Jennifer Tilly (332,000) (lead photo), Robert Campbell (200,000), and short-stacked Gary Benson (11,000).

Event #57: $1,000 Tag Team No-Limit Hold'em

This event attracted 1,031 teams last year when Guiseppe Pantaleo and Nikita Luther each won a bracelet and shared the $175,805 top prize. This year's four-day event also proved to be popular despite attracting a slightly smaller field of 976 teams to generate an $878,400 prize pool with the winning team sharing the $168,395 top prize.

This event is a fun one to follow as players join up in teams of two to four players and can tag in and out as long as a teammate isn't in a hand. The only other major rule to follow is that each teammate must play at least an orbit in the tournament or that team will be disqualified.

Jared Jaffee and Ralph Massey
Team Massey in the lead entering Day 2.

Each of the three years this tournament has run, it has been teams of two that have won the bracelet. This may all change this year with Jared Jaffee, Ralph Massey, and Aaron Massey joining forces for a team of three and finding their way into Day 2 with a chip leading stack of 255,000.

Another team of three sits just behind Team Massey with Team Gerrits consisting of Martijn Gerrits, Preston Lee, and Kane Kalas sitting on a stack of 236,100.

The action will resume today at 1 p.m. PDT with 278 teams competing for ten blind levels of an hour each starting at 800/1,600 and a big blind ante of 1,600. Teams will be in the money at some point today with 147 teams walking away with at least a $1,498 min-cash.

Event #58: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

The five-day Poker Players Championship kicked off yesterday with 64 players with the field scheduled to grow further with late registration open for several hours today.

Two-time bracelet winner Josh Arieh (658,500) and Justin Bonomo (646,100) sit on top of the chip counts while two-time bracelet winner Mike Gorodinsky was the only player yesterday not to find a bag.

Event #59: $600 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack Championship

The Deepstack Championship bracelet events have proven to be a popular addition to the WSOP this year. The $500,000 guarantee in this event will likely be smashed based off the success of prior Deepstack Championship events this festival and the fact that there will be a WSOP Main Event seat valued at $10,000 added to the prize pool for the eventual bracelet winner.

The scheduled structure is different in this Deepstack Event than in others. The action begins today at 11 a.m. PDT with players starting with 30,000 in chips and will end after 15 blind levels of 40 minutes each. Players can reenter once up until the conclusion of Level 12 or at approximately 9:15 p.m. PDT.

Surviving players are scheduled to compete for two more days on June 26-27 with blind levels increasing to an hour each. This can all change depending on the turnout and other factors.

Event #60: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Get ready for split pots and scoops as this three-day event kicks off today at 3 p.m. PDT with players starting with 25,000 in chips and blinds increasing every hour.

Today will feature ten blind levels of an hour each with players allowed to reenter once up until the conclusion of Level 8.

Joseph Couden
Joseph Couden won last year's event.

Last year, Joseph Couden finished on top of a field of 935 entrants to win the bracelet and the $244,730 top prize. Couden had to best a difficult final four which included Bruno Fitoussi (second - $150,990) and four-time bracelet winners Eli Elezra (third - $106,183) and Mike Matusow (fourth - $75,708).
