The penultimate day of Event #19: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship began the day with 34 players remaining, all looking to lock up a spot at the featured final table and keep their hopes alive for that coveted WSOP gold bracelet and the $182,872 first-place cash prize! After seven 90-minute levels of play we are down to our final seven players!
This Seven Card Stud(ded) final table features 19 WSOP gold bracelets won by four of the final seven players! Of course, WSOP bracelet numbers are a bit skewed when Hellmuth(15x WSOP Winner) is involved, but do not count out the other past bracelet winners Anthony Zinno(2x WSOP Winner), James Chen(1x WSOP Winner) and Stephen Chidwick(1x WSOP Winner) who are each looking to add to their hardware collection. They will all have to also navigate experienced tournament professional Jason Gola, as well as Day 1 chip leader Jose Paz-Gutierrez if they want to earn that bracelet and cash.
Two Hall of Fame poker legends Jack McClelland and final table chip leader Phil Hellmuth will continue to play in seats one and two, respectively, at this featured final table. With close to a century of combined poker experience under their belts, we can all look forward to these two gentlemen to keep us locked in, as McClelland goes for his first and Hellmuth his sixteenth WSOP gold bracelet, to an already very special and unique championship finale!
Please join us on Monday at 3:00 p.m. local time (PST) here on PokerNews for live updates or at the main feature table located in the mothership in the Amazon Room here at the Rio where play will continue until a new champion has been crowned!
