Just six remain in the hunt for a prestigious World Series of Poker bracelet as an extra day has been required to determine the winner of Event #13: $1,500 Big Blind Antes No-Limit Hold'em.
With the action originally scheduled to play down to a winner on Day 3, it was decided early on that a fourth day would be added with the potential of the action being streamed live. Cards will get back in the air at 1 pm Friday afternoon.
Benjamin Moon is currently in the chip lead after bagging 2,760,000 on Day 3, slightly ahead of fellow big-stack, Colin Robinson, who is hot on his heels with 2,660,000. Nhathanh Nguyen (1,403,000), Romain Lewis (1,295,000), Steven Snyder (1,065,000), and Bohdan Slyvinskyi (590,000) make up the rest of the line-up that will compete for the $315,346 first-place prize.
Final Table Seat Draw
|Seat||Player||Country||Chip Count||Big Blinds|
|1||Nhathanh Nguyen||United States||1,403,000||28|
|3||Bohdan Slyvinsky||United States||590,000||12|
|4||Colin Robinson||United States||2,660,000||53|
|5||Steven Snyder||United States||1,065,000||21|
|6||Benjamin Moon||United States||2,760,000||55|
Each player is looking to score their first WSOP bracelet while Moon, Nguyen, and Slyvinskyi have locked up just the first WSOP cash of their career. In fact, with under $15,000 in career live-recorded earnings, both Moon and Slyvinsky are each guaranteed the biggest cash of their lives. Impressively, this appears to be Nguyen's first poker score ever. Quite the debut cash he already has guaranteed.
Robinson, Lewis, and Snyder, on the other hand, are significantly more decorated. While just having one WSOP cash to his name, Robinson has banked more than $280,000 around the world including a cash worth $173,233 at an event in Prague.
Lewis shares a similar story with most of his success found across the pond. Hailing from France, Lewis has amassed more than $680,000 in tournament earnings but has found some success at the WSOP. Lewis has three cashes equalling $39,324 with his deepest run coming in 2017 in the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Max Championship, placing 16th for $30,000.
The best track record at the WSOP between the final six goes to Snyder. Between the series and the WSOP Circuit, Snyder has 47 cashes, including three circuit rings, banking $530,421 along the way.
Here's what the players have left to fight for:
|7||Eric Polirer||United States||$40,549|
|8||Raymond Ho||United States||$30,742|
|9||Dutch Boyd||United States||$23,605|
