Event #73: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em MAIN EVENT - World Championship
Yesterday's Day 3 of the Main Event ended with the remaining 1,286 players from the original field of 8,569 entrants in the money for at least a min-cash of $15,000. Today will resume with Day 4 at noon PDT with at least five blind levels of two hours each starting with the final 6:26 minutes left on Level 15 with blinds at 3,000/6,000 and a big blind ante of 6,000.
Preben Stokkan ended the day as the chip leader after bagging a monster stack of 2,184,000. It was a huge rollercoaster ride for the Norwegian as early in the day he was down to a single chip of 5,000 in his stack.
Also entering today with big stacks are Andrew Brokos (1,906,000), Ryan Dodge (1,800,000), WSOP bracelet winner Galen Hall (1,658,000), and Cassio Pisapia (1,646,000).

Event #75: $1,000+111 Little One for One Drop No-Limit Hold'em
This event set an attendance record yesterday with already more than 5,000 entrants in the field from the three opening flights and more to come with reentries permitted for the first two blind levels on today's Day 2 starting at 1 p.m. PDT.
The previous attendance record in this event was in the event's inaugural year in 2013 when Brian Yoon finished on top of a field of 4,756 players to win the first of his three bracelets and the $663,227 top prize.
Russia's Nikolay Fal bagged the biggest stack on yesterday's Day 1c with a stack of 437,000 but sits in seventh place on the overall leaderboard entering today's Day 2 behind Day 1b chip leader Stefan Ivanov (658,000), Hophuoung Lay (591,000), Joris Ruijs (557,000), David Lolis (524,000), Amit Zulkowitz (518,000), and Day 1a chip leader Mark Eddleman (464,600).

Today will feature ten blind levels of an hour each starting at 800/1,600 and a bid blind ante of 1,600. Surviving players will battle for two more days until a winner is crowned on July 11.
Event #77: $3,000 Limit Hold'em 6-Handed
This event attracted 193 entrants to create a $521,000 prize pool with $133,189 top prize and a coveted bracelet going to the winner. This is slightly down from the 221 entrants that battled it out last year when Yaser Al-Keliddar won the $154,338 top prize.
A total of 57 players survived heading into today's Day 2 at 2 p.m. when blinds will start at 1,000/2,000 with limits at 2,000/4,000 and increase every hour. Players are scheduled to bag chips after ten blind levels and will play for two more days until one player has all the chips on Thursday, July 11.
The top five players on the leaderboard in Ron Carmona (142,500), Joshua Turner (139,000), Alex Torry (139,000), Stuart Rutter (130,500), and Jason Bawadi (129,000) are all vying for their first bracelets. Players that have found WSOP gold before to bag big stacks include Marco Johnson (120,000), Mark Radoja (117,000), Daniel Zach (82,000), and Christopher Vitch (80,500).
Event #90: Final Fifty No-Limit Hold'em
This late-edition to the schedule has been a success thus far with 109 entrants joining in on the action during yesterday's Day 1 or just one less than the 110 entrants that battled in the Event #5: 50th Annual High Roller - $50,000 No-Limit Hold'em won by Ben Heath for $1,484,085. It is likely the field will be even bigger than the earlier $50,000 buy-in event with late registration and reentries open until the start of today's Day 2 at 4 p.m. PDT.
Seth Davies leads the 44 Day 1 survivors with a stack of 2,250,000 in chips. He is followed by Dan Smith (1,680,000), bracelet winner Elior Sion (1,520,000), three-time bracelet winner Adrian Mateos (1,450,000), and bracelet winner Fedor Holz (1,320,000).
Event #78: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Bounty
Omaha players will be back in full force for this relatively low buy-in three-day event where players will cash even on Day 1 with $500 bounties awarded for each opponent eliminated.
The action kicks off at 11 a.m. PDT with players starting with 25,000 in chips and will end after ten blind levels of an hour each. Players can reenter once until late registration closes at the beginning of Level 9.
Surviving players are scheduled to play for two more days with a bracelet scheduled to be awarded on Thursday, July 11.
Anderson Ireland came out of nowhere last year to record his first Hendon Mob cash in a big way after finishing on top of a field of 833 entrants to win the $141,161 top prize.
Event #79: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em
This four-day event begins today at 3 p.m. PDT with players starting with 20,000 in chips and will end after ten blind levels of an hour each. Players will have one chance to build a big stack as there are no reentries available during the eight-level late-registration period.
Portugal's Diogo Veiga finished on top of a field of 1,020 entrants in this event last year to win his first bracelet and the $522,715 top prize.
