Day 4 of Event #17: $1,500 Millionaire Maker saw 20 players start the day and only five players make it to the fifth and final day. Tomorrow, Oct. 13, action will resume at 4 p.m. local time, and although the five remaining players have locked up $222,430, they will all be looking to win the WSOP gold bracelet and the $1,000,000 first-place prize that awaits one of them.

Daniel Lazrus, who won his first bracelet earlier this year, will be looking for his second as he bagged 60,200,000 chips and is the chip leader going into the final day of play with almost two times the amount of chips as the second biggest bagged stack of Ignacio Moron (30,600,000).

Four-time bracelet winner Michael Gathy (21,900,000) will be looking for another bracelet, while Jeffrey Gencarelli (13,500,000) and Darryl Ronconi (7,400,000) will also have a shot at WSOP gold.

Poker is a game that requires adaptability and mastering different variants. For the 10 players who will return tomorrow to crown a champion in Event #23: $1,500 Eight-Game Mix, they'll get a chance to prove they can do it better than anyone.

Right behind him is another multiple bracelet winner in Connor Drinan, who finished the day with 1,990,000. Three other bracelet winners made the top-10: Brett Shaffer (800,000), Ryan Leng (770,000), and Dan Zack (384,000).

For Schuyler Thornton, Tyler Willse, Hunter McClelland, George Alexander, and Brandon Bergin, winning the bracelet tomorrow will be a new experience for them. To get this far, they had to navigate a field of 484 players. Day 2 began with 144 players still in the mix, with the money bubble coming at 73rd place.

The first of four days has been played to completion in Event #25: $5,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em – with Scott Drobes leading the way after bagging up 692,700 in chips through ten levels of play. Other big stacks belong to Jonathan Jaffe (425,000), Antoine Goutard (440,000) and Diogo Veiga (326,000).

The tournament attracted an abundance of poker talent, as expected in any high buy-in WSOP event. By the end of Day 1, of the 578 players who entered — only 192 remained. Some notables who bagged and tagged into Day 2 include with Kitty Kuo (94,100), Faraz Jaka (121,700), David Benyamine (101,100), Maria Ho (57,000), Joseph Cheong (81,100), Jason Sommerville (40,500), and Erik Seidel (130,300).

Daniel Negreanu made a splash after registering late in the day by running up his stack early, due largely in part to running pocket aces into Chino Rheem's queens and later turning a full house to knock out another player. Negreanu will return to Day 2 with 265,400 in chips.

Registration for the event will remain open until the start of play tomorrow, which is set to begin at 2 p.m. local time. The returning players will come into level 11 (1200/2400/2400 blinds) and play an additional 10 hour-long levels.
