Keep pace with the non-stop action with Poker Central’s “WSOP Daily Brief.” Each day, we’ll highlight World Series news, poker’s biggest names, upcoming live streams, and more. Follow along and watch the 2019 World Series of Poker on PokerGO and CBS All Access all summer long.
Ikeuchi in the Lead
After the biggest event in live poker history awarded the first seven-figure payout for a small event in 2019, the biggest Millionaire Maker field in history is down to the final table. Another seven-figure payout awaits the bracelet winner and Japan’s Kazuki Ikeuchi enters with the chip lead.
Ikeuchi’s advantage over Cory Albertson is slim, but their lead over the rest of the field is sizable. Both should be favorites to contend for the $1.3 million top prize after locking up $266,771 last night.
The final table streams exclusively on PokerGO at 4 PM ET.
Henningan Headlines H.O.R.S.E.
You don’t get the nickname Johnny World for being good at a few poker games, you have to be great at all of them. John Hennigan showed that last year, when he won his 5th bracelet in the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship. After Day 1 of the 2019 H.O.R.S.E. Championship, Hennigan has a big stack and is in contention to go back-to-back.
Johnny World bagged a top-five stack, trailing Scott Clements, Brian Hastings, Randy Ohel, and chip leader Daniel Ospina. Clements has already won gold this summer, while Hastings, Ohel, and Ospina are looking for their first big results of the summer. The $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship final table streams live on PokerGO this Friday.
