Closing the podium for today is Finnish star Joni Jouhkimainen with 1,215,000. With a total of $4,021,626 in live earnings and a solid reputation online in the highest stakes PLO games, Jouhkimainen will be a serious contender for the victory tomorrow.

End of the day action
The bubble burst only one hour before the end of the day, when Jason Sommerville called Gabriel Vezina for his last ten big blinds and found two pairs to eliminate Vezina right before the money. Another player was eliminated on the same hand, so they both shared the 87th place prize.
Some of the players that weren’t that lucky to progress to Day 2 but did make the money include 2019 Main Event champion Hossein Ensan, Samuel Chartier, who managed to survive to the bubble with less than three big blinds, Brian Rast, nine-time bracelet winner Erik Seidel, Yuri Dzivielevski and Romain Lewis.
Many of the famous players that did enter today but fortunate enough to make a trip to the payout desk included, five-time bracelet winner Scotty Nguyen, 16-time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, and many other WSOP winners such as Dario Sammartino, Justin Liberto, Chino Rheem, Chance Kornuth, Brandon Shack-Harris, Dan Shak, David Benyamine, Shaun Deeb, Ben Yu and Mustapha Kanit just to name a few.
The action will pick up again at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday and will play down to a winner. There will be a 15-minute break every four levels and a 60-min break after Level 32 (≈ 8:30 p.m.). The tournament is scheduled to play until a new champion is crowned.
