Maceiras Continues to Dominate as 15 Remain in the 2023 WSOP Main Event

Juan Maceiras

Seven tournament days have concluded for the largest WSOP $10,000 Main Event in history and the gargantuan field of 10,043 has been whittled down to the final 15 contenders. They are competing for a large portion of the $93,399,900 prize pool at the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas but the eventual winner won't be crowned for another four days in the Thunderdome.

Juan Maceiras entered the day second in chips and proceeded to dominate throughout the five 120-minute levels en route to claiming 108,000,000 in chips. His father was also a poker aficionado and he passed on the reign to his son, who was a PokerStars sponsored pro in Spain and is the odds-on favorite to become the new world champion.

Adam Walton soared into second place in the final hand of the night when he flopped a full house against the turned flush of Anirban Das to end the day with 94 big blinds for Day 8. Walton was supported by a boisterous rail and will certainly hope to have them back in the Horseshoe Events Center for the remaining three tournament days.

"It's really fun. It's fun to have everybody here hanging out. It's a very rare experience to be able to do this in the Main, so I'm having a blast. Having the time of my life," Walton mentioned once the emotions had settled down after bagging and tagging.

Germany's Jan-Peter Jachtmann is one of two WSOP bracelet winners still in contention and occupies the final spot on the overnight podium. The Hamburg-based marketing manager usually prefers the great game of Pot-Limit Omaha, in which he triumphed back in 2012, taking down Event #39: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship for a career-best score of $661,000. He has a decent shot at surpassing that payday by a significant margin in the days to follow thanks to amassing 70,775,000 in chips so far.

Daniel Weinman likewise won his first bracelet in the four-card variant during the 2022 WSOP at the very same venue and sits in the middle of the pack with 21,750,000 in chips.

Toby Lewis

Arguably one of the most well-known contenders still in the mix is the English poker pro Toby Lewis, one of four Brits with chips at their disposal. He once again made a big lay down and correctly folded the top two pair in a large pot against Jachtmann. Lewis was left with 22 big blinds on the final three tables, more than enough to spin up thanks to the deep structure of the event, and he finished a topsy-turvy day with 50,050,000, good enough for fifth place.

He will be joined by fellow countrymen Sachin Joshi (27,775,000), Dean Hutchison (17,500,000), and Jack O'Neill (11,700,000), while Andrew Hulme was eliminated in 18th place in the final level of the night.

Another late casualty on Day 7 was Russian poker pro Andrey Pateychuk, who had already racked up $5 million in tournament cashes on the live poker circuit prior to this deep run. One of his eight six-figure scores came in the 2011 WSOP Main Event in which he finished in 15th place for $478,174. Pateychuk reached the final two tables once again a decade later, but had to settle for 17th place this time.

Day 6 chip leader Joshua Payne retained his chances of reaching the nine-handed final table but dropped back into the middle of the pack. The same also applies for seasoned pro Alec Torelli, who required several double-ups when getting short to advance and return another day.

The final 15 hopefuls are set to return at 2 p.m. local time on Friday, July 14, and the returning blinds for Level 36 will be 400,000-800,000 with a 800,000 big blind ante. Day 8 is scheduled to conclude when the nine finalists for the official final table have been determined, who then get one day off prior to the grand finale which is then spread across two final days.

It was a day split in two different phases as the initial field of 49 contenders was quickly cut into more than half and just 21 players still had chips in front of them on dinner break upon completion of the third level of the day.

By then, notables such as Sam Stein, Japan's YouTube star Masato Yokosawa, Maurice Hawkins, and Mark Teltscher had already visited the payout desk. Brazil's Carlos Henrique Da Silva was also among those to bow out after he never recovered from losing half of his stack when O'Neill pulled off a successful preflop six-bet shove.

Three eliminations in quick succession then set up the redraw of the final three tables when Harsheel Kothari, Matthew Wantman and Nicholas Gerrity were all eliminated in a matter of minutes.

The action never really slowed down either as the third level of the day brought with it another six open seats with Gabi Livshitz and Ryan Tosoc among those to run out of chips. Once the field returned from dinner, Daniel Scroggins succumbed to his short stack in the very first hand but it would be the only casualty of the entire two-hour session. Weinman scored a double in a cooler against Joe Ghio when he flopped a superior set with the latter bowing out in 19th place.

The aforementioned Hulme reached the second redraw of the evening with less than half a big blind after he had hero-called at the wrong time versus Torelli prior. The miracle comeback was cut short in a single hand thereafter and the pay jump from $345,000 to $430,200 was of no concern for the other 17 contenders.

Pateychuk and Das hit the rail during the dying minutes of the night and set the stage for a potentially short-lived Day 8, which requires only six eliminations to set up the 2023 WSOP Main Event final table. The PokerNews live reporting team will be back to provide all of the action, in sync with the delay of the PokerGO live stream, so as to avoid spoilers.
