WSOP Bracelet

An extra day was added in Event #9: $600 No-Limit Hold'em because the tournament attracted so many players. A total of 6,151 entries were made in one of the new events held at the 50th Annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) to generate an impressive prize pool of $3,229,275 and the first-place prize of $398,281. Paul Jain is leading the final nine with 41,700,000 in chips which equates to around 52 big blinds at the start of the day.

Jain is well ahead of the other players as his closest competitor is Jeremey Pekarek with 21,800,000 chips at the start of the day. Pekarek will have 27 big blinds when they continue in level 38: 400,000/800,000 big blind ante 800,000 later today. Jain already improved on his best recorded live cash by securing $35,183 in reaching the final nine. Pekarek, on the other hand, still needs one more pay jump to improve on his best recorded live cash.

Others with a good shot at winning the WSOP gold bracelet include David Elet (21,300,000), Noomis Jones (21,100,000), Juan Magana (19,500,000), Tan Nguyen (18,400,000), and Benjamin Underwood (17,600,000). The two short stacks of the tournament are Dan Kuntzman and John Skrovan. Both bagged the exact same stack of 11,600,000 at the end of Day 2 and they will start the day with 14.5 big blinds.
