Among those who will be eyeing the top prize and their first bracelet are chip leader Michael Thompson (923,000) of Plano, Texas who has already secured one of his biggest poker cashes.

There are three bracelet winners among the remaining players including Philip Long, who won a $1,500 eight-game mix event in last year’s WSOP. The London native enters today third in chips with 813,000. Andrey Zaichenko (424,000), who has over 3 million in career earnings and a 2-7 lowball triple draw WSOP bracelet to his name.
