Drinan looks to win his second bracelet at the 2021 WSOP. The American tournament crusher took down Event #5: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better earlier in the series.

Just behind Hughes and Drinan in the chip counts are Schuyler Thornton (1,505,000), Tyler Willse (1,165,000), Hunter McClelland (1,110,000), George Alexander (936,000), and Brandon Bergin (934,000). All of those players are looking to claim their first career WSOP bracelet.

A trio of former bracelet winners round out the final ten names in the field, including Brett Shaffer (800,000), Ryan Leng (777,000), an Daniel Zack (384,000).

The action restarts at Level 26 today, and plays through 60-minute levels until a champion is reached. Players will get 15-minute breaks after every two levels, as well as a dinner break at a time to be determined.

Follow along with PokerNews today to see who takes the $1,500 Eight Game Mix 6-Handed championship.
