- What Lies in Store For Day 7 of the WSOP?
Sunday is a day of rest for millions of people globally, but there was no time for resting on June 4 at the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP) at the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas. It was a super busy day with six live and two online events, and four gold bracelets awarded!
Chanracy Khun won the $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship after defeating heads-up guru Doug Polk in the final match-up. Khun walked away with his first WSOP bracelet plus $507,020 in prize money.
The second bracelet awarded on June 4 went to Nick Schulman, who came out on top in the $1,500 Seven Card Stud event. Schulman banked $110,800 and the fourth WSOP bracelet of his long and illustrious career.
The other two bracelets went to champions of the pair of online events.
Ian "IanMa" Matakis triumphed in the $500 No-Limit Hold'em Bankroll Builder, and saw his bankroll swell by $120,686.
Ryan "dna2rna" Hughes took down the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack for $145,059, denying Shaun "fortnite" Deeb what would have been his sixth bracelet. Hughes is now a three-time WSOP champion.
Eveslage Looking for Back-to-Back Dealer's Choice Titles
Eveslage bagged a tournament-leading stack of 1,371,000 chips at the end of 17 levels of play. During that time, the record-setting 130-strong field was whittled to a more manageable 13, with those 13 mixed game specialists returning to their seats from 2:00 p.m. local time on June 5.
