Who Will Capture the Second Gold Bracelet of the 2023 WSOP?

2023 WSOP Gold Bracelet

There will be a new champion crowned today at the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP), as Event #2: $25,000 High Roller 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em will play down to its winner, with the final day kicking off at 1:30 p.m. local time.

From a field of 207, just nine players remain in contention for the second WSOP bracelet of the series and the $1,215,864 designated for the winner. In pole position to capture the first-place spoils is France's Axel Hallay (7,980,000), who has around 25% of the chips in play. Hallay pulled off quite the comeback in yesterday's session as he spun up his chip-leading stack from just 40,000.

Rounding out the top three chip counts are Chris Moore (4,455,000) and Joey Weissman (4,150,000), while Elior Sion (1,202,500) props up the rest of the pack.

First Seven-Figure Payout of 2023 WSOP to be Awarded

Sean Winter
Can Sean Winter cross his name off the best without a bracelet list?

The final day survivors have all banked themselves at least a $104,733 payday, with the next pay jump coming when the field reduces to seven players. However, everyone will be gunning for the first seven-figure payout of the 2023 WSOP.

Five players also have the chance to win their first-ever gold bracelet, with Hallay, Moore, Alexandre Vuilleumier, Sean Winter and Ren Lin all looking to secure their first piece of major WSOP hardware and cross their names off the best players without a bracelet list.

Weissman, Sion and Jake Schindler are all vying to become a two-time WSOP bracelet winner while Chance Kornuth is on the hunt for his fourth title.
