Event #7: $1,500 Dealers Choice 6-Handed

Henson Heads the Last 11 Into Day 3 of Event #7: 1,500 Dealers Choice

After two already incredible days of mixed game action at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, Event #7: $1,500 Dealers Choice reaches its crescendo Tuesday as the final 11 players battle for the gold bracelet.

Along with Day 2 Chip leader Ray Henson (1,365,000) striving for his first WSOP bracelet, the field has several great stories developing.

Naoya Kihara (400,000) is on the verge of back-to-back final tables in this event after finishing fourth in this event in 2019. He’ll be looking to better that result, but comes into the day with one of the shorter stacks in the room.

Day 1 chip leader Nathan Gamble’s (480,000) journey into Day 3 was on cruise control until a bumpy last level dropped him down in the chip counts. Can he rebound and claim his third WSOP bracelet?

2018 and 2019 champion in the $10,000 championship version of this event, Adam Friedman (330,000) will be looking to tempt fate, as his offer to bust in 16th for the privilege of eliminating Norman Chad has already been surpassed. Will the poker Gods allow him to run up his short stack and make a charge at another mixed game bracelet?

Play resumes at 3:00 pm local time in the Amazon room, and PokerNews will have all the action leading to a winner claiming the bracelet and the $97,915 first prize.
