The 2019 World Series of Poker is slowly coming to an end, but the last week of action will provide plenty of excitement, including today's Day 43.
The Main Event continues with Day 5 with 888poker qualifier Dean Morrone in the chip lead while Brandon Adams is looking to add a second bracelet to his collection with a comfortable lead with seven remaining in the $50,000 Final Fifty.
Another developing story is that 2018 WSOP Player of the year Shaun Deeb is hunting for his fifth career bracelet with the lead in the $1,100 Little One for One Drop.
Among the new events starting today is the inaugural $1,500 50th Annual Bracelet Winners Only, where you guessed it, only former bracelet winners are invited to play.
Meanwhile, the $3,000 Limit Hold'em played faster than planned and will take a day off before the final table is played out on Thursday, July 11.
Here's what's on tap today, in the daily What to Watch For on PokerNews, sponsored by 888poker.
Event #73: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em MAIN EVENT - World Championship
The field is down to just 354 players from the original field of 8,569 entrants to start today's Day 5 at noon PDT. The plan for today is to play five more blind levels of two hours each beginning at 12,000/24,000 and a big blind ante of 24,000.
Two 888poker qualifiers bagged huge stacks to start the day including Day 4 chip leader Dean Morrone (4,980,000) and Mihai Manole (3,781,000). In between these two players on the leaderboard are Lars Bonding (4,040,000), Michael Messick (3,925,000), Warwick Mirzikinian (3,900,000), and Henrik Hecklen (3,862,000).

Event #78: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Bounty
Yesterday's Day 1 attracted 1,130 entrants to create a $960,500 prize pool in addition to players collecting $500 bounties for each player they eliminate. This is a significant increase from the 833 entrants this event attracted last year when Anderson Ireland won the bracelet and the $141,161 top prize.
The action will resume with 247 players at noon PDT with blinds at 800/1,600 and increasing every hour. The plan is for players to bag chips after ten blind levels of an hour each and play one final day tomorrow until someone wins the bracelet and the $177,823 top prize.
Tobias Schwecht (419,200) enters today with the chip lead followed by Richard Kellett (414,600), Yingui Li (379,400), Kazuhiko Yotsushika (359,600), and Jason Young (356,300).
Several bracelet winners also bagged above average stacks including Jonathan Dimmig (276,800), Aditya Sushant (215,300), Bryce Yockey (197,400), Allan Le (165,000), Andreas Klatt (151,800), Jack Duong (151,700), two-time winner Luis Velador (150,600), Andrew Donabedian (139,200), and Kevin Eyster (123,000).

Event #79: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em
This event is one of the few not to outperform the same event from the year before. This year, the event attracted 671 entrants to create a $1,811,700 prize pool and a $380,090 top prize. A fair bit smaller than the 1,020 entrants last year when Diogo Veiga won the bracelet and the $522,715 top prize.
Play will resume at 2 p.m. PDT with Romania's Vlad Darie with a chip leading stack of 284,000. On his tail are Andras Nemeth (264,500), David Margi (263,500), Guillaume Nolet (230,000), Peter Walsworth (222,000), and two-time bracelet winner Athanasios Polychronopoulos (221,000).
Also bagging big stacks were bracelet winner Michael Tureniec (209,000), two-time winner Kristen Bicknell (192,000), and three-time winners Justin Bonomo (170,500) and David Pham (133,000).

Event #80: $1,500 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha
This three-day event will keep players on their toes with the game switching every eight hands between no-limit hold'em and pot-limit Omaha.
The action begins today at 11 a.m. 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.
Last year witnessed Jordan Polk win his first bracelet after he outlasted a field of 707 entrants to win the $197,461 top prize.

Event #81: $1,500 50th Annual Bracelet Winners Only No-Limit Hold'em
This new four-day event should provide a bit of excitement as players can only enter if they have previously won a bracelet. This also means that the field will likely be more difficult than the average $1,500 buy-in bracelet event as every player in the field has tasted WSOP gold in the past.
The tournament kicks off at 3 p.m. PDT with players starting with a massive stack of 50,000 in chips and will bag chips after ten blind levels of an hour each. The tournament is a pure freezeout, meaning no reentries are allowed. However, players can opt to skip today and late register this event before the start of tomorrow's Day 2 at 2 p.m. PDT.
