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 #62 – $50,000 Poker Players Championship
While chip leader Isaac Haxton is looking for his first WSOP victory in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, Daniel Negreanu is looking to *finally breakthrough in 2017. Kid Poker has come dangerously close to a seventh-career bracelet this year, notching 2nd, 3rd and 6th place results along the way but those near misses would be well worth it if Negreanu can win the Poker Players Championship.
Negreanu comes back within the top-five heading into the penultimate day, along with Shaun Deeb. The online legend has also had a few close calls this summer, including a runner-up finish in the $10,000 2-7 Limit Lowball Triple Draw Championship. Deeb has won WSOP gold over the last two summers and has a shot to add an even more prestigious title to his trophy case this week.
Event #63 – $1,000 No Limit Hold’em
Ryan Hughes currently sits in the top-five on the WSOP Player of the Year leader board and while he isn’t involved in the Day 4 the Poker Players Championship, he is still alive heading into the final day of Event #63. Hughes has a top-three stack with 20 players remaining in the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em event and a final table finish or win could vault him to the top of the POY standings.
Event #64 – $1,500 No Limit Hold’em/Pot Limit Omaha Mix
The Poker Players Championship won’t play to a winner until tomorrow but Event #64 will award WSOP gold tonight. The $1,500 No Limit Hold’em/Pot Limit Omaha Mix event has some big names near the top of the leader board, including Esther Taylor, Shannon Shorr and Connor Drinan but they are all looking up at Ryan Laplante. The bracelet winner entered Day 2 with the chip lead and now heads into the final day atop the charts, where he’ll look to parlay that advantage into another WSOP bracelet.
