All In

Welcome back to the final day of Event #17: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed here at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. In total, there were 1,663 players that sat down over the past two days, but only 27 of them will return today at noon local time. With a first-place prize of $378,743 and the coveted gold WSOP bracelet on the line, the action for today is expected to be full-on, especially with the six-handed format.

The player in the lead is the German Gabriel Baumgartner with 987,000 in chips, but he is closely followed by the Belgian Alexandro Tricarico with 983,000. These two players have actually been drawn onto the same table for today which they will share with another Belgian, Bart Lybaert (716,000) who also finished in the top five of the chip counts. Also on the table is one-time WSOP bracelet winner Ryan D’Angelo (585,000) and Alexandr Lipkin (346,000).

Third in the chip counts is Luke Brereton from the United Kingdom with 767,000 in chips who will be sharing the felt with Kanzuki Ikeuchi (710,000) and Ivan Deyra (237,500). Yue Du (749,000) will be seated at the same table as Jamie Rosen (638,000) and Pierre Calamusa (690,000). Other players to keep an eye on include bracelet winners Nick Schulman, Tristan Wade who both have 280,000 in chips, Joey Weissman (364,000), and Adrian Buckley with only 72,000 which is seven big blinds.

The 27 remaining players will return to play Level 21 with a small blind of 5,000, big blind of 10,000, and the running ante of 1,000. Levels will last 60 minutes each with a 15-minute break after every two levels. A 60-minute dinner break will take place after the first six levels have been played.

The plan is to play down to a winner today and PokerNews will be here from start till end, from bet to bust, from double-up to dust off, from all in to all out, until the final card has been dealt, so keep your eyes on the live updates!
