Final Day of the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. Starts at Noon
Event #8: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. begins its race to the finish today at the Rio All-Suite Casino & Resort in Las Vegas.
A total of 778 players set their eyes on the championship bracelet, but only one will walk away with it on his wrist tonight. The 20 players coming back from Day 2 are guaranteed at least $6,188. The winner will receive the bracelet, and $212,604 in prize money.
Ben Ponzio has a commanding lead over the rest of the field, as he vies for his second gold bracelet. (His first was in 2007, in no-limit hold'em.) Justin Bonomo is his closest contender; he's also looking for a second career bracelet. As a point of fact, nearly half the players are looking for a second bracelet today. The other half want their first (except for Scotty Nguyen, who's looking for number six).
Cards go in the air at 12:00 p.m., and a winner will be determined today. Live updates will be published here, and a cards-down live stream
will be broadcast with a five-minute delay for the final table.
