One player won their first bracelet playing on their mobile phone in the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino cash game area. The other won their third at the final table of the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship. Both are in with a chance of winning their second WSOP gold bracelets of the summer with six left in Event #83: $100,000 High Roller.
Both Brandon Adams and Nick Schulman find themselves well-positioned behind current chip leader Keith Tilston when play resumes six-handed at midday.
Rounding out the final table is Dominik Nitsche, Igor Kurganov and a certain Daniel Negreanu who despite coming into the final table as the short stack with just 13 big blinds, will see this is a real opportunity for bracelet number seven and his first in Las Vegas for 11 years.
Here's how the final six players are seated:
Final Six Players
|Seat||Name||Country||Chip Count||Big Blinds|
|1||Keith Tilston||United States||14,475,000||58|
|2||Nick Schulman||United States||11,650,000||47|
|4||Brandon Adams||United States||12,375,000||50|
The top 15 players in the $100,000 High Roller were in the money and with six players remaining, they are all guaranteed $457,772.
The winner, however, will walk away with $2,792,406 and a WSOP gold bracelet.
Play resumes at midday with the blinds at 125,000/250,000/250,000 for 15 minutes before they increase. Stay tuned to PokerNews for hand-for-hand coverage of the final table.
