Welcome back to the final day of Event #17: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed which will start at noon local time on the ESPN Feature Table. The final six players will be battling it out for the coveted gold WSOP bracelet and the first-place prize of $378,743 here at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Taking the lead for today will be one-time bracelet winner Joey Weissman with 3,683,000 in chips which is over 100 big blinds. But the rest of the table won’t let him take the win easily. There are three other bracelet winners on the table. Ryan D’Angelo (2,350,000) and Yue Du (796,000) are two other players trying to win their second WSOP bracelet. Bulgaria’s Ognyan Dimov is trailing Weissman in the chip counts with 2,560,000 and looks to be bringing a big Bulgarian rail with him in his campaign to victory. Antonio Barbato from Italy took 2,205,000 with him overnight to try and better his biggest live cash ever. He’ll be looking to surpass it by winning his first bracelet and the first for Italy this summer.

Two-time bracelet winner Nick Schulman has 29 big blinds with 861,000 in chips. He won his first bracelet in 2009 in the $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship and his second in the same tournament but in 2012. Will he win his first No-Limit Hold’Em bracelet today? Schulman is also known for his excellent commentary during the Super High Roller Bowl and many other occasions. Now it’s his turn to be commentated on as the final table will be streamed on PokerGO.

Play ended in Level 26 with almost 50 minutes to go. The players will return to finish that level which has a small blind of 15,000, big blind of 30,000, and a running ante of 5,000. It is expected that the action will be swift so make sure to keep an eye on the PokerNews updates as the winner will be crowned today, here in the Amazon Room.
