Welcome to the fourth and final day of Event #64: $888 Crazy Eights No-Limit Hold'em.
At 12 p.m. local time, the final ten players will return to the felt to continue to battle it out until a winner is crowned.
Starting the day as a massive chip leader is Aleksandras Rusinovas with an impressive stack of 114,625,000, the only stack above the 100,000,000 mark. Rusinovas is already guaranteed the first five-figure score of his WSOP resume but will be going for a six-figure score that 8th place would guarantee, and will be shooting for that $888,888 top prize. He is followed by Thomas Drivas with a stack of 58,600,000. Drivas already owns a WSOP Circuit ring and will try to match it with a bracelet. 888poker ambassador Vivian Saliba sits in third with 43,500,000. Saliba has over $120,000 in earnings at the WSOP and will try to claim her first WSOP title. Anything in the top seven places will double her WSOP lifetime earnings.
Mark Radoja (36,100,000), and Vlad Darie (26,750,000) are still in contention as well. Radoja owns two bracelets and has $1,834,112 in cashes at the WSOP. He will be looking to add more gold to his collection. As for Darie, he got 6th in this event in 2017 and will try to close it out this year.
The remaining 10 players are all guaranteed a min-cash of $82,130 but all eyes will be on that first-place prize of 888,888 along with the shiny WSOP gold bracelet. Action will resume with blinds of 600,000/1,200,000 with an ante of 1,200,000.
