Daniel Zack was playing on the Main Stage all day, claiming the coveted prize in Event #15: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship after a seven-hour (!) heads-up onslaught with Dustin Dirksen.

Chicagoan Bryan Schultz topped the incredibly popular Event #18: $1,000 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em that drew a bumper field of 2,663 hopefuls. Long Beach, NY's Dominick Sarle joined the winner's circle by showcasing his poker prowess in the Mixed Triple Draw Lowball.

Keep reading to get a snapshot of all things that transpired on Friday in the sweltering heat of Sin City. No fewer than eight concurrent events took place, including the start of the ever-popular Monster Stack that drew nearly 3,000 hopefuls on the first day.

Just nine players remain in Event #16: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em, with three former bracelet winners still in contention.

Leading the way is David Miscikowski, who won his first WSOP bracelet in 2014 and will be in pole position to add another when play resumes at 12 p.m. on Saturday, June 11.

Other bracelet winners still alive are Davide Suriano and Joey Weissman. Suriano won his bracelet the same year as Miscikowski, but for Weissman, it will be just under 10 years since he grabbed a bracelet back in 2012.

Miscicowski's chip lead will surely get some people in the poker world talking after being named as an alleged cheater in the Bryn Kenney cheating allegations by Martin Zamani.
