Only one bracelet found its owner on Day 11 of the 2023 World Series of Poker at the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas.
Valentino Konakchiev won the bracelet for Event #19: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout.
There was a second event scheduled for a winner, but there was still a trio of players in Event #20: $1,500 Badugi as daylight approached. Instead, the last three players will be returning on June 10 to conclude the tournament.
Meanwhile, Event #18: $300 Gladiators of Poker No-limit Hold'em played out Day 1c, and Event #21: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed and Event #22: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship had their Day 2s.
Andres Korn Denied Second Bracelet Heads Up By Valentino Konakchiev
Konakchiev put on an impressive showing at the final table of Event #19: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout where he played an aggressive final table. When Konakchiev got down to heads up play, he found himself up against bracelet winner Andres Korn.
However, Konakchiev popped Korn's hope for a second bracelet, beating him heads up to take down $435,924 for first place. This is Konakchiev's first bracelet.

Justin Bonomo Leads The $50,000 High Roller Field After Day 1
There were 111 entries on Day 1 of Event #23: $50,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold'em. By the close of play, that field had been cut down to 48 with Justin Bonomo (2,024,000) taking the chip lead.
There is still late registration until the start of Day 2, so there is still time for more big names to join the roster.
As you might expect from so pricey an event, the list of entrants and survivors so far is just one shark after another. The top ten chip counts included big names like Sam Soverel (1,450,000), Alex Foxen (1,236,000), Jeremy Ausmus (1,016,000), and Chris Brewer (1,618,000), hot off a third-place finish in Event #8: $25,000 Heads Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship.
PokerNews will pick up the coverage of Day 2 of this event when it starts back up on June 10 at 12 p.m.

Badugi Bracelet Pushed To Day 4 With Three Players Left
Event #20: $1,500 Badugi started its Day 3 today with thirteen players. Although the event was scheduled to play down to a winner today, play reached the end of level 35 with three players still going at it.
Serhii Popovych, Michael Rodrigues, and Yingui Li are still in the game.
Li and Rodrigues are in close contention with 4,900,000 and 4,600,000 in chips, respectively. However, Popovych is not far behind with 3,350,000. It could be anyone's bracelet.
When the players completed level 35, the tournament director made the call to end the day. As a result, the event will resume tomorrow, June 10, at 1 p.m. local time.

There will be one more flight (Day 1d) starting at 10 a.m. on June 10. Surviving players from today will be added to the list containing the 507 players who have already qualified for Day 2. You can check out our coverage on PokerNews.

Day 2 for $1,000 PLO Event
Some 2,017 players bought in to Event #21: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed yesterday. 117 of those players rejoined Day 2 today, and just 13 will be coming back tomorrow. Each of those returning players has locked in $15,700, but one of them will be heading home with $165,616 and a gold WSOP bracelet in tow.
Stephen Nahm holds a commanding lead going into the final day's play, but anything can happen in PLO tournaments, so a Nahm victory is far from guaranteed.
Action will resume at 12 p.m. local time on June 10. The blinds will be 50,000/100,000 with a 100,000 big blind ante.

With a field of 556 players, Event #24: $1,500 Razz is now the biggest razz tournament in WSOP history. The previous record was 462 entries from 2015. This suggests a significant boost in the popularity of the game.
Only 170 of those 556 bagged a stack for Day 2. Among the survivors were notables like former WSOP Players of the Year Jeff Madsen (190,000), Shaun Deeb (80,000), and David Bach (51,500).
They were joined by several previous bracelet winners like Michael Moncek (187,000), David "ODB" Baker (185,000), and Marco Johnson (91,500).
Day 2 resumes at 1 p.m. local time on June 10th and will be hosted in the Gold section of the Horseshoe. The money bubble is expected to burst around halfway through the day of ten one-hour levels.
