Day 48 was another thrilling day at the 2023 World Series of Poker at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas. it saw the Main Event cut down to only three players, plus several events fill the vast tournament areas. Continue reading to discover what went down in Las Vegas.
Event #87: $2,500 Mixed Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better required an addition day because Day 3 concluded with Nghia Le, Nick Pupillo, and Bradley Smith still in contention for the $221,733 top prize. The tournament finally crowned its champion and Smith is that man. In addition to the prize money, Smith captured the first bracelet of their career.
Pierre Shum became champion of Event #88 The Closer, helping themselves to a $606,810 score and a coveted gold bracelet. Some 3,531 players bought into one of the last events of the 2023 WSOP, and Shum outlasted everyone on their way to an impressive victory.
Steven Jones Leads the 2023 WSOP Main Event With Only Three Remaining
We almost know who the 2023 WSOP Main Event champion will be because only three players remain in contention to take down Event #76: $10,000 WSOP Main Event World Championship.
Day 9 of the Main Event saw the nine-handed final table whittled to only three hopefuls, with each of that trio now guaranteed a whopping $4,000,000. The pay jumps are astronomical, with the runner-up collecting $6,500,000 and the champion taking home a record-breaking $12,100,000.
One of Steven Jones (238,000,000), Daniel Weinman (199,000,000), or Adam Walton (165,500,000) will be poker's world champion for the next 12 months. Check out our dedicated WSOP Main Event recap right here to find out what went down at the final table.

$10K NLHE 6-Max Requires an Additional Day
Event #90: $10,000 6-handed No-Limit Hold'em Championship was meant to conclude on July 16 but the tournament staff decided to call it a night with four players still in contention for the $1,057,663 top prize.
All four remaining players have already captured some poker goals during their glittering careers, so victory on July 17 will see them become a two-time champion.
Frenchman Alexandre Reard (18,450,000) is the man to catch going into the unscheduled Day 4, and by some distance. Reard has almost three times as many chips as Stephen Chidwick (6,950,000), and is way ahead of AJ Kelsall (4,500,000), and Justin Liberto (3,100,000). Indeed, Reard holds more chips than the other three players combined.
July 17 at 1:00 p.m. is when the cards are back in the air in this event, so return to PokerNews then to discover who wins this huge event.

After 17 levels, Ian Steinman (883,000) bagged up the most chips of the 124 survivors, and has done his chances of becoming a two-time WSOP champion no harm at all.
Dylan Wilkerson (691,000) ended Day 1 second in chips, with Russia's Nikolai Tulin (646,000) bagging up the third-most chips.

Japanese Duo Nobuaki Sasaki (378,300) and Shota Nakanishi (336,300) occupy spot in the top four, while Indonesian legend John Juanda (240,900), and China's Dong Chen (238,800) find themselves in the overnight top ten.
