Witteles Leads Final 12; Bardah, Bonomo, Mueller In Contention
Welcome back to our coverage of the 2013 World Series of Poker! Today, the 37th bracelet winner of the summer will be crowned as Event #37: $5,000 Limit Hold'em draws to its exciting conclusion. The man nearest the goal of victory is Todd "Dandruff" Witteles who will be bringing the top stack of 442,000 into play today. Witteles will be joined by eleven other hopefuls for the final day as they vie for the gold bracelet and the $211,743 first-place prize.
While Witteles is sitting on the largest mound of chips, other fierce competitors are right on his heels. Ronnie Bardah is a WSOP bracelet holder in limit hold'em, taking down Event 40: $2,500 Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed at the 2012 WSOP. At his final table, Bardah conquered the likes of Marco Johnson, Brent Wheeler, and Sorel Mizzi to grab hold of the gold. Also returning and sitting in the sixth-place chip position is two-time WSOP bracelet holder Greg Mueller. Both of Mueller's bracelets are in limit hold'em and he is quite likely to add a third to his resume today. Though he sits at the middle of the pack, Mueller will most certainly be one of the ones to look out for as the day progresses.
Other names returning to the felt for the final day of play include Justin Bonomo, Steve Landfish, Gabriel Nassif, Ben Yu, and a handful of others.
Play will kick off in the Amazon room at 2:00 PM PST. Be sure to stay tuned to our coverage throughout the day as we provide the latest updates on the quest for the next WSOP champion!
