Sean Winter

Friday was the eleventh day of the 2024 World Series of Poker (WSOP) at the Horseshoe and Pairs Las Vegas. It was a busy day with three bracelets awarded and another five playing their earlier rounds out.

The first bracelet awarded today went to Brent Hart in Event #16: $5,000 8-Handed No-Limit Hold'em. This was his first bracelet.

He was joined later in the day by Dylan Weisman who won Event #18: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha and John Racener who won Event #19: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship. Weisman and Racener each had one prior bracelet to their name.

Elsewhere at the series, some of the biggest names in poker were fighting to join Hart, Weisman, and Racener in five ongoing events.

Brandon Wilson Leads Final 12 In Six-handed High-roller Event

Brandon Wilson
Brandon Wilson

Event #21: $25,000 High Roller Six-Handed No Limit Hold'em is one of the series's most prestigious events. Short-handed play requires players to mix things up and the $25k price tag tends to attract the best in the game.

At the end of Day 2 of this event, 12 players remained, led by high stakes regular Brandon Wilson. This surviving dozen is all that is left of a field that started out 272 entries strong. These numbers put $6,392,000 in the prize pool and $1,405,641 up top for the eventual winner.

If Brandon wants to win that top dollar, he has to get through surviving sharks like former bracelet winners like the number two stack Stoyan Madanzhiev, Masashi Oya, Ognyan Dimov, and Justin Saliba who is the Day 3 tail-end Charlie.

The money bubble broke on Day 2. Unfortunately, Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey busted shortly before reaching the money, but Nick Petrangelo (39th - $50,936), Chance Kornuth (38th - $50,936), Ethan Yau (27th - $53,483), and Erik Seidel (23rd - $64,249) all managed to earn a cash.

The third and final day of Event #21: $25,000 High Roller will start at 12 p.m. local time on June 8.

Day 1 of Event #24: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Eights or better Championship (8-handed) was a big day. The event attracted 224 entries, generating a prize pool of $2,083,200 so far. With late registration available until level 12 (two levels into Day 2) there is still time for that pot to grow even bigger.

Sean Winter led the remaining 95-player field with 378,000 in chips after Day 1 ended. He was closely followed by Michael Duek (255,000) and Jesse Lonis (248,500) in second and third.

Some other notables who bagged up a stack at the end of the day were Yuri Dzivielevski (304,500), Ken Aldridge (238,000), Ben Lamb (152,00), Shaun Deeb (42,500), and Mike Matusow (20,500).

Some other players were less lucky. For example, Robert Mizrachi, Eli Elezra, and Daniel Negreanu all ponied up their $10,000 entry fee but failed to make it to Day 2.

Play will resume at 1 p.m. local time on June 8 at Horseshoe Event Center with the blinds at 1,500/3,000.
