Shaun Deeb and Uri Reichenstein Enter With Big Stacks For the Final Day of Event #88: $5,000 8-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Shaun Deeb

The 2021 World Series of Poker may be coming to an end, but there is still work to do for the remaining 30 players in Event #88: $5,000 8-Handed No-Limit Hold'em.

There are still many big names in the field today including five-time WSOP bracelet winner Shaun Deeb (1,680,000). Deeb won his fifth bracelet just last month in Event #53: $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller - 8-Handed.

Also in the top five is Uri Reichenstein (2,070,000), who is coming off a third-place finish just this past week, and George Wolff (1,770,000), who is nearing three million in recorded tournament earnings. Wolff and Reichenstein are both still seeking their first bracelet and are in a prime position to do that today.

Leading the pack is four-time winner Ben Yu (2,515,00). Yu took home his fourth bracelet earlier in the series in Event #56: $10,000 6-Handed NLH Championship.
