Three players saw their poker dreams come true when the got their hands on WSOP bracelets, while six other events filled the vast tournament areas and edged closer to crowning champions of their own.

Event #51: $400 Colossus finally has its champion on June 28 when only Paul Hizer remained from the 13,565 players who started the tournament with high hopes. The victory came with a $414,490 cash prize in addition to a gold WSOP bracelet.

James Todd joined the ranks of WSOP bracelet winners by coming out on top of the Event #54: $500 Salute to Warriors. Only 21 of the 3,209-field made it through to the final day's action, and it was Todd who was the last man standing, defeating Brett Coltman heads-up to secure the $161,256 top prize in addition to their first bracelet.

The third bracelet of Day 29 of the 2022 WSOP went to Martin "115FTW" Stoyanov got their hands on the fourth and final bracelet awarded on June 28.

Only five teams from the 913 that started Event #55: $1,000 Tag Team remain in the hunt for this event’s bracelet and the $148,067 than comes with that sought-after piece of poker hardware.

Team Paggeot, made up of Corey Paggeot and Jamie Kerstetter are in control going into the final day’s action with a stack of more than 50 big blinds. Team Tsugaru, who has Yutaro Tsugaru and Taichi Ichikawa pulling the strings are the leader’s nearest rivals.

They may be short-stacked but do not write off the chances of Team Leonard (Patrick Leonard and Espen Jorstad), Team Spitale (Franco Spitale and Martin Pochat), or Team Kraemer (Mackenzie Kraemer and John Schiller) because they have all reached this stage on merit.

Cards are back in the air from 4:00 p.m. local time on June 29.

They say 13 is unlucky but the 13 players who remain in Event #56: $50,000 Poker Players Championship certainly do not consider themselves that. This is because they reached the penultimate day of what is arguably the WSOP’s most prestigious tournament.

Brazilian Yuri Dzivielevski (5,645,000) is the man to catch going into Day 4. Dzivielevski is hunting for his third WSOP bracelet but he will be made to work hard for it judging by how strong the field still is despite being whittle from 112 entrants to only 15.

Defending champion Dan Cates (4,995,000) is still in the mix, as are the likes of reigning WSOP Main Event champion Koray Aldemir (3,205,000), British mixed game specialists Matthew Ashton (2,250,000) and Benny Glaser (1,210,000), plus five other players who have already struck poker gold at least once in their career.

The players return to the action from 2:00 p.m. local time on June 29 when they play down to a fantastic final five.

John Ypma

The 60 players who survived Day 2 of Event #57: $600 Deepstack Championship No-Limit Hold’em will feel they have one hand on this event’s bracelet after navigating their way through most of the 4,913-strong field. John Ypma will feel that more than most because he entered Day 3 with the envious title of chip leader.

Ypma bagged up 6,660,000 chips at the close of play, and is closely followed by John Ciccarelli (6,635,000) who has less than a small blind fewer chips than the leader.

Plenty of established pros remain in the field, including Nick Marchington (4,415,000), Jon Van Fleet (4,100,000), Jeremy Ausmus (2,850,000), and Craig McCorkell (2,430,000).

The remaining 60 grinders return to their seat from midday on June 29.
