Thursday features a new $365 NLHE gold ring event as well as a $365 PLO re-buy gold ring event.

Elizabeth, Ind. (October 8, 2015) -- Thursday is Main Event eve here at the Horseshoe Southern Indiana property. It's a big day that includes one final table, two brand new gold ring events and two Main Event Mega Satellites.

The final table today is for Event #7 - $365 No-Limit Hold'em Bounty. Yesterday the bounties were important, but today they pale in comparison to the final table pay jumps. The winner of the bounty tournament will earn $9,396 and a WSOP Circuit gold ring.

Here is a look at the final table chip counts:

Rank First Name Last Name Chip Count T S
1 Jason Hill 411,000 1 7
2 Michael Bailey 244,000 1 5
3 John Denman 241,000 1 1
4 Frank Schinco 160,000 1 6
5 James Casement 160,000 1 9
6 Matthew Johnson 145,000 1 3
7 Barbra Walston 143,000 1 4
8 Robert Cheung 141,000 1 2
9 Luis Martinez 96,000 1 8
