Who Will be Crowned Champion in Event #29: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship?
All eyes will be set on Dario Sammartino when the final day of Event #29: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship gets back underway at noon local time on the main feature table of the Amazon room at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. Down to the final seven, Sammartino enters his seventh WSOP final table with a commanding lead and almost half of the chips in play to become the latest bracelet winner at the 50th World Series of Poker.
It won't be an easy ride by any means, as many scoops are required in the five different game types in order to claim the coveted gold bracelet. Sammartino enters the final showdown with a massive stack of 5,030,000, more than three times as many chips as second-placed Craig Chait (1,630,000).
Three of the remaining seven finalists already have at least one WSOP bracelet to their name: Scott Clements (1,355,000), Greg Mueller (985,000) and Daniel Ospina (985,000). As a matter of fact, Clements could become the first player to win his second bracelet of this series after claiming his third career bracelet in Event #10: $1,500 Dealers Choice.
Mikhail Semin (215,000) and Matthew Gonzales (130,000) round out the final table line-up and will require an early double or triple up with blinds of 30,000/60,000 in Hold'em and limits of 60,000/120,000 in the Omaha and Stud games.
