Day 46 of the 2019 World Series of Poker will feature five events with both the final tables of the $10,000 Main Event and the $1,500 Double Stack taking a day off before resuming on Sunday.
Two big final tables will take place today with Keith Tilston leading the way in the $100,000 High Roller with six players remaining and Ayaz Mahmood leading the final seven players in the $1,500 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha.
The $1,500 Closer resumes with Day 1b and the $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha enters Day 2. The last Championship Event in the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Max is the only new event to begin today as the series is starting to wind down.
Here's what's on tap today, in the daily What to Watch For on PokerNews, sponsored by 888poker.
Event #80: $1,500 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha
This event rotates every eight hands between no-limit hold'em and pot-limit Omaha. It was scheduled to end yesterday but due to the large field of 1,250 entrants, a fourth day was added starting at noon PDT today with hour-long blinds starting at 100,000/200,000 and a big blind ante of 1,600,000 when no-limit hold'em is played.
The event is down to just seven players with Ayaz Mahmood holding the chip lead with 8,430,000 in a quest to win his second bracelet. The other six players are each battling for their first taste of WSOP including high roller Lucas Greenwood (6,515,000), Jeremy Kottler (5,145,000), Eddie Blumenthal (3,240,000), Peter Linton (3,115,000), Jerry Odeen (2,380,000), and Adam Demersseman (2,315,000)

Event #83: $100,000 No-Limit Hold'em High Roller
Another six entrants joined the action on yesterday's Day 2 to grow the field from 93 to 99 entrants to create a $9,603,000 prize pool.
The tournament resumes today with a final table of six players at noon PDT with PokerGO providing a live stream on a short delay starting at 1 p.m. PDT. The action begins with 15 minutes remaining at 125,000/250,000 and a 250,000 big blind. After this blind level, blinds will increase every 40 minutes.
The final table features some of the biggest names in poker with chip leader Keith Tilston (14,475,000) being the only player never to win a bracelet thus far. Tilston already has one big WSOP cash this week when he took fourth place in the $50,000 Final Fifty for $275,874.
Among those looking to prevent Tilston from winning his first bracelet and instead add another bracelet to their collection include Brandon Adams (12,375,000), WSOP commentator and three-time bracelet winner Nick Schulman (11,650,000), 888poker Ambassador and four-time bracelet winner Dominik Nitsche (9,850,000), Igor Kurganov (8,500,000), and six-time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu (3,150,000).

After yesterday's final table eliminations of James Chen (ninth - $230,801), Christoph Vogelsang (eighth - $281,025), and Sergi Reixach (seventh - $353,202), the remaining six players are guaranteed a $457,772 payout. The final three players will each go home with at least a seven-figure haul of $1,187,802 with the winner going home with the biggest prize awarded thus far in the series of $2,792,406 and the bracelet.
Event #84: The Closer - $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em
Today features the second of three opening days in this event. Yesterday attracted 477 entrants on Day 1a, slightly down from the 502 drawn in Day 1a last year when Joe Cada won his fourth bracelet and the $612,886 top prize after finishing on top of a field of 3,120 entrants.
Like yesterday, players will start today's action at 11 a.m. PDT with a stack of 25,000 and can reenter an unlimited amount of times until the start of Level 13. Bags will be passed around after 20 blind levels of 30 minutes each.
Just 30 players advanced from Day 1a although many that were eliminated made the money with 70 players guaranteed at least a min-cash worth $2,247.
Roman Korenev emerged as the chip leader on yesterday's Day 1a with a stack of 1,198,000 in chips. The Russian is in the hunt for his second bracelet after already winning the $2,620 Marathon earlier this summer for $477,401.
Also bagging a seven-figure stack yesterday was Griffin Abel (1,000,000), followed by nine-time gold ring winner Ari Engel (936,000). Like Korenev, Engel is also after his second bracelet this festival after previously winning the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em for $427,399.
Other bracelet winners advancing to Monday's Day 2 include two-time winner Steven Wolansky (610,000), two-time winner Kristen Bicknell (319,000), Ralph Perry (304,000), Mike Sexton (234,000), and Rick Alvarado (223,000).
Event #85: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Handed
Yesterday's Day 1 attracted 835 entrants to create a $2,254,500 prize pool and a $448,392 top prize. This is down from last year when Dutch poker player Ronald Keijzer finished on top of a field of 901 entrants to win the $475,033 top prize.
The action resumes today with Day 2 at 2 p.m. PDT with ten blind levels of an hour each starting at 800/1,600.
Paresh Doshi (359,300) bagged the most out of the 173 survivors followed by Kenneth Lucas (291,500), Hao Chen (287,800), Christopher Wehner (284,300), and Alan Sternberg (270,100).
Two-time bracelet winner Keith Lehr (239,400), Anton Morgenstern (233,000), Martin Zamani (231,700), bracelet winner David Williams (211,600), and bracelet winner Leif Force (211,000) all bagged north of 200,000 at the end of the day and will look to build on that figure tomorrow.
Event #86: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Championship
The final championship event kicks off today at 3 p.m. with players having plenty of elbow room with six-max tables. Today will feature ten blind levels of an hour each.
Players start with 60,000 in chips and can choose to late register until the start of tomorrow's Day 2. The bracelet is scheduled to be awarded on Day 4 on July 16 when most of the focus will be on who wins the WSOP Main Event.
Last year, Shaun Deeb won his fourth bracelet and capped off his run to win the 2018 WSOP Player of the Year after finishing on top of a field of 355 players to win the $814,179 top prize.
