Throughout the summer, PokerGO will bring fans across the globe exclusive access to World Series of Poker final table streams and Poker Central will be following all the WSOP action. Each day, “World Series of Photos” will tell the daily stories from the Rio, so you don’t miss any of the sights of the WSOP.
Event #52 – $1,500 No Limit Hold’em
Poker fans got a two-for-one special on PokerGO yesterday, with the final tables of both Event #50 and #52 streaming live. Chris Bolek claimed his first bracelet in the $1,500 No Limit Hold’em Bounty event, which came back five-handed, but in the main event of the night, Mohsin Charania broke through to complete poker’s Triple Crown. After claiming EPT and WPT victories earlier in this career, Charania won WSOP gold, besting Cary Katz heads up for the title and giving his massive rail something to celebrate.
Event #53 – $3,000 Limit Hold’em
Charania came back a few table breaks away from the final table but Max Silver returned for the final day of Event #53 at the top of the counts and in prime position to claim his first-career WSOP bracelet. The No Limit Hold’em specialist did just that and posed with his own rail, a Motley Crue of Silver supporters that were there to cheer there man to the title.
Event #54 – $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship
The $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship is one of the WSOP’s most prestigious events, because of the star-studded field that it attracts, and the 39 players that are returning for Day 3 of that event certainly fit that billing. Former WSOP Player of the Years Ben Lamb and Mike Gorodinsky return, along with 2017 bracelet winner John Racener but they are all looking up at Scott Clements. The Omaha specialist, pictured top, is pacing the field and could be headed towards another WSOP victory.
Event #55 – $1,500 Seven Card Stud
Weekends are full of bracelets and the first piece of hardware likely to be awarded this weekend, will be in Event #55. Seven players will come back to play to a $1,500 Seven Card Stud champion and Tsong Lin is in the driver’s seat. Lin comes back with a decent chip lead and while most of the Stud action that we’ve seen throughout the Series has been of the split pot variety, there will be no chops in this one and Lin will hope that a few big scoops can lead to a career-defining victory.
