The penultimate day of Event #14: $1,500 Seven Card Stud at the 2021 World Series of Poker began with 76 remaining players, all vying for a seat at the final table and a shot at a coveted WSOP Gold Bracelet and the $82,262 in cash that comes along with it. After ten 60-minute levels of play, six players are still in contention with four-time bracelet winner Shaun Deeb headlining the final table.

A total of three previous bracelet winners will take a seat on Friday with David Williams (1,050,000), Nicholas Seiken (970,000) joining the aforementioned Deeb, who will return with 1,195,000 in chips. Standing in the way of these previous champions are Christina Hill (435,000), seasoned professional David Moskowitz (1,150,000), and last, but certainly not least, automotive group mogul and current chip leader Rafael Lebron(1,690,000).

Maurizio Melara bet all-in on third street and was called by Lebron. The dealer ran out the cards and it was Lebron's pair of nines that took down the pot and eliminated Melara in 7th Place.

Hal Rotholz was all in on fourth street and the cards were turned up and he would see the bad news as Rafael Lebron was rolled up with trip fours.

Rotholz was chasing a straight but fifth street effectively ended things as the king paired to give Lebron a full boat to make the last couple of cards meaningless and Rotholz was gone in 8th place.
