Another bracelet winner will be crowned at the 2019 World Series of Poker as Event #23: $1,500 Eight Game Mix, as Rami Boukai and John Evans will return to the their seats on the outer feature table in the Amazon room to battle for the coveted gold bracelet and top prize of $177,294. The runner-up out of a field of 612 entries will receive $109,553 for the efforts.
Boukai already knows what it feels like to lift the bracelet for the winner shots after claiming his maiden victory in a 2,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em/Omaha bracelet event back in 2009, and he will enter the final day with a 3-1 lead over Evans when play resumes at 2 p.m. local time at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.
For Evans, it will be his second WSOP cash of the year and in total after a 109th place finish in $1,500 HORSE (Event #14), and he also has nine WSOP Circuit events to his name. However, the guaranteed six-figure payday will be by far the biggest of his career to date and with just 30 big bets in play in total, his chip deficit may quickly turn into a lead and victory in a matter of just a few hands.
Heads-up chip counts:
|1||Rami Boukai||United States||4,565,000|
|2||John Evans||United States||1,545,000|
The action resumes at 2 p.m. local time and the PokerNews live reporting team will be there to provide all the action and winner quotes until the conclusion of this exciting mixed game event.
