Yuri Dzivielevski takes the chip lead (1,126,000) up against an absolutely loaded field on the final day of Event #78: $10,000 Razz Championship.

The Brazilian star accounts for two of the 39 combined World Series of Poker bracelets earned by the remaining 13 players.
At the top of that list are 16-time winner Phil Hellmuth (133,000) and nine-time winner Erik Seidel (227,000). They’ll be entering the day, however, on two of the shortest stacks with just under four and six big bets respectively.

A little higher up the leaderboard are three-time winners Benny Glaser (552,000) and Brad Ruben (316,000). After a second and third-place finish at this year’s WSOP, Glaser will be eager to grab that top spot on the podium. Ruben did just that earlier this fall when he took down the $1,500 Razz title.

John Monnette is also right in the mix as he goes for his fifth bracelet. He’ll start the day with 861,000 chips.

Plenty of other mixed game stars are still in contention and will be in search of their first WSOP bracelet including Yehuda Buchalter (874,000), Erik Sagstrom (845,000), Roland Israelashvili (647,000), and Shirley Rosario (398,000).
