The penultimate day of Event #64: $600 Deep Stack Championship No-Limit Hold'em is set to start at 10 a.m. local time at the 2023 World Series of Poker at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas.

After Day 1 whittled the starting field down from 4,303 competitors to just 543 who made it through to Day 2, that second day of action thinned the field out to just 44 competitors left vying for the elusive WSOP gold bracelet and first place payday of $270,972 out of the total prize pool of $2,194,530

Atlanta native Cade Lautenbacher bagged the top stack with an impressive 7,205,000. Close on his heels were Jonathan Fhima (6,665,000) and Julian Pineda (5,860,000) who round out the top three.

Also still in the running are bracelet winners Joe Ebanks (5,355,000), Howard Mash (3,940,000), and Erik Cajelais (2,660,000), who will all look to add to their already impressive poker resumes.

Play today will continue until just five players remain. They will begin at Level 28 with 50,000/100,000 blinds and a big blind ante of 100,000. Levels will last for one hour, with a 15-minute break scheduled for after every other level and a 60-minute dinner break after Level 33, expected to be around 4:30 p.m. local time. The five remaining players at the end of the day will bag their chips and return Saturday, July 1st, for the final day when a champion will be crowned.
