Scott Abrams

Scott Abrams of Henderson, Nevada is the chip leader once again after bagging the top stack of Day 1 in Event #21: $1,500 Mixed Omaha. A field of 27 players will return on Tuesday at 2 p.m. to compete for a WSOP gold bracelet and the top prize of $170,269. The 641 entries generated an $855,735 prize pool.

Abrams is joined by Jordan Spurlin, Hernan Salazar, and Ryan Roeder at the top of the leaderboard, each with over 1 million chips. Abrams is looking for his first gold bracelet at the 2021 World Series of Poker after seven career top-ten finishes in mixed game varieties.

Other notables returning for Day 3 include Daniel Negreanu (535,000), Dylan Linde (470,000), Patrick Tardif (410,000), Ari Engel (305,000), and PJ Cha (200,000). Linde is a mixed games specialist on the hunt for his first WSOP gold bracelet and Engel will try to win his second WSOP title of the 2021 WSOP after taking down Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo just last week.

Negreanu had a rollercoaster Day 2 with several chip swings coming late in the evening. After building up his stack over the course of the day, Negreanu was on the wrong end of a four-way pot that brought him near the brink of elimination, but he soon found his way back again and ended the day with a stack that is just below average. Negreanu will return tomorrow to hunt for his seventh gold bracelet after already cashing three times at the 2021 WSOP.

Remaining Payouts

The winner will receive $170,269 and all remaining players are guaranteed at least $5,627.
