Final Day of the Highly Esteemed H.O.R.S.E. Championship Set
Welcome to the final day of Event #44: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship here at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas. After three full days of play, only five players remain in the hunt for the esteemed mixed-game gold bracelet.
Andrew Yeh leads the pack and seeks his maiden bracelet. Yeh is a Las Vegas local who already has three cashes at this year's series, but this is already the biggest of his summer. He looks to claim the impressive $487,129 that awaits the champion at the end of the day.
Final Day Seat Assignments
|Seat||Player||Country||Chip Count||Big Blinds||Big Bets|
|1||John Racener||United States||2,520,000||32||16|
|2||Andrew Yeh||United States||3,860,000||48||24|
|3||Philip Long||United Kingdom||3,630,000||45||23|
|4||Bryce Yockey||United States||1,290,000||16||8|
|5||Craig Chait||United States||1,245,000||16||8|
The button will be on Craig Chait and there are five hands left in Omaha Hi-Lo
Among those that stand in Yeh's way is the Day 1 chip leader, Philip Long. From London, Long is no stranger to big moments at mixed-game final tables. He won the $1,500 Eight Game Mix in 2018 at the 49th Annual World Series of Poker.
Those watching the stream will see two opposite table personalities in Craig Chait and John Racener. A tablemate noted Racener is, "a man of very few words" at the table, Racener let the cards do his talking on the way to the final table. Chait, on the other hand, was joking throughout the day, sharing stories, and provided the entertainment so often associated with mixed games.
Rounding out the final five is none other than Bryce Yockey. With nearly three million in tournament earnings according to Hendon Mob, Yockey placed fourth in this same event at last year's series. With stunning back-to-back final table showings, Yockey looks to improve on that run and eyes the first-place spot this time around.
