Moshe and Gimbel Look to Accumulate Another Bracelet Amidst Stiff Competition in Event #44: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'Em Bounty

Asi Moshe

It's time for the final day of action in Event #44: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Bounty! A WSOP bracelet will be won today, as out of an original field of 1,807 entries, only the remaining 23 players will return at 12 noon to battle to the winning prize of $253,933 plus any bounties accumulated throughout the tournament.

Asi Moshe is the only player remaining with multiple bracelets, with two WSOP bracelets to his name. He enters the day second in chips with a stack of 4,530,000.

Looking to deny Moshe his third bracelet are a host of players including the only other WSOP bracelet winner in the field, Harrison Gimbel, he enters the day fourth in chips with 2,985,000 and will be aiming to add his second bracelet to his 2017 $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em bracelet. As well as chip leader Damjan Radanov (4,625,000) and Timothy Stephens (3,220,000) who is third in chips.

Well-known Dutch player Martijn Gerrits (2,145,000) will be looking to make his second bounty event final table of the 2019 WSOP, having done so previously in Event #2: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty. He has a WSOP circuit ring to his name as well as a 15th place finish in last year's Main Event.

French professional Kalidou Sow will be attempting to make his first big splash in the stateside WSOP as he sits on the lower end of the chip counts with 1,000,000 in chips and Vitalijs Zavorotnijs (1,540,000) would become the first bracelet winner from Latvia if he were to emerge victorious today.

There is plenty of play left in the tournament as play starts back at level 25 with blinds at 20,000/40,000 and a 40,000 big blind ante, meaning that the average chip stack is still close to 50 big blinds, giving everyone a great chance to emerge as the victor. Each level is 60 minutes long with a 15-minute break every two levels of play.

The campaign for the coveted WSOP bracelet will begin today at noon and will continue all the way until a winner is crowned. Play will be streamed on CBS All Access once the field is trimmed to six, which is slated for 7 p.m. Pokernews will provide live updates of who is eliminated, which players are building chips and ultimately who will take home the WSOP bracelet.
