While the players in the 2023 World Series of Poker Main Event were enjoying a well-deserved day off before the final table commences, there was plenty of side event action going on at the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas.
The day brought three freshly minted bracelet winners, with poker coach Faraz Jaka finally capturing his maiden bracelet to round out an already stellar poker resumé. Jaka, returning from a significant health scare in recent months, won three single table Sit 'n Go's in a row to win the bracelet in a $1,500 Shootout event.
The South American country of Peru is no longer without bracelet winners as its number one player, Diego Ventura, captured gold in Event #86: $1,979 Poker Hall of Fame Bounty NLHE. Ventura claimed a top prize of over $400k along with the coveted wristband.
The notorious Event #89: $1,000 Flip & Go Presented by GGPoker saw 128 players make their way through the fireworks portion of the tournament (click here to read some strat from Daniel Negreanu about the game). The 128 lucky survivors then continued in a regular poker format where Dong Meng prevailed over Hustler Casino Live notable Wesley Fei.
A fourth bracelet was also scheduled to be handed out, but the three remaining players in Event #87: $2,500 Mixed Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better bagged to return for an unscheduled fourth day.

Three Remain in Event #87: $2,500 Mixed Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better
Three days were not enough to determine a champion in Event #87: $2,500 Mixed Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better, which means that three players will return to Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas to find out who will win $221,733 and a WSOP gold bracelet at the 2023 World Series of Poker.
Leading the final three is Nghia "3 Putts" Le, who bagged 7,400,000. Based out of Minnesota, the ever-talkative and jovial Le finished third in the $10,000 Razz Championship earlier this summer and looks to improve upon that finish and take home his first bracelet.
In second sits Nick Pupillo, who bagged 6,045,000. Pupillo won his first bracelet last month by capturing the $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball title, and will look to join Chad Eveslage, Chris Brewer, and Josh Arieh in taking home a second bracelet this summer.
Coming into Day 4 as the short stack is Bradley Smith, who bagged 2,655,000. Smith, from Thornhill, Ontario, Canada, has tied his best-ever finish at the WSOP and looks to improve upon his 2019 $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. third-place finish by spinning up his stack when play resumes.

The Closer Draws Over 3,500 Entries, 258 in Contention
After 22 levels of play on Day 1b of Event #88: $1,500 The Closer at the 2023 World Series of Poker, it was Jack Duong who claimed one of the top spots after bagging an impressive 1,485,000 in chips. After the dust settled, only 183 remained from this flight to join the 76 hopefuls from Day 1a for Day 2 tomorrow, July 16th at 10 a.m. local time.
Duong, who is no stranger to these fields with over $2.2 million in tournament earnings, will look to put his big stack to work on Day 2 in hopes of capturing his second WSOP bracelet. Duong won his first WSOP bracelet back in 2015 in Event #62: $1,500 No Limit Hold'em Bounty for $333,351.
The overnight chip lead was a shared affair as both China's Chen Feng Wen and American Mathew Moore bagged 1,750,000 in chips. Day 1a chipleader Benson Tang will take the overall chip lead into Day 2, which promises to be fast and furious given the shallow stack depth.

Phil Hellmuth Searching for Bracelet No. 18 in Event #90: $10,000 6-Handed NLHE Championship
Day 2 of Event #90: $10,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em Championship has come to an end with Jamie O'Connor leading the charge after bagging up 2,545,000 through an additional ten levels of play. Not far behind him is AJ Kelsall, who managed to amass 2,325,000 by the day's end.
O'Connor has over $1.2 million in live tournament earnings, including a third-place finish in from a Six-Handed No-Limit event from back in 2019. A win for O'Connor would be his first bracelet and largest cash to date.
Phil Hellmuth will be among those to watch on Day 3 and sits in the middle of the pack with 860,000 in chips. Unsurprisingly, plenty of crushers are left in contention as well, such as Stephen Chidwick (1,615,000), Justin Liberto (1,355,000), and Alexandre Reard (1,250,000) in the top half of the board.

Day 1 of Event #91: $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. at the 2023 World Series of Poker at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas has come to a close, and for the second year in a row, Brazilian pro Andre Akkari ended the day as the chip leader, bagging up 232,300.
The tournament saw 332 players pony up the buy-in, slightly up from last year’s 328, generating a prize pool of $886,440, with first place taking home $208,460 and the coveted gold bracelet. From the 332, 195 will return for the second day, and 50 will walk away with a cash prize and Hendon Mob flag for their efforts.
