Welcome to Day 1 of Event #21: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed! Last year, this event attracted 924 participants, creating a prize pool of over $2.5 million. Simon Charette won the event, taking home a first-place prize of $567,624. We’ll have to wait a few hours until late registration
This is the third six-handed no-limit hold’em event at the 2013 World Series of Poker, and thus far it has the biggest buy-in. Later in the summer, however, players will contest the $25,000 six-handed event, a new addition to the WSOP schedule this year, and today’s $3,000 buy-in event will act as a prelude to that much anticipated tournament.
Event #21 will begin at 1 p.m. local time. Players will begin with 9,000 in chips and are scheduled to complete 10 levels of play. PokerNews.com be here all day bringing you live coverage straight from the Rio Las Vegas.
