Chance Kornuth celebrated his third WSOP victory last night in Las Vegas as the popular poker pro and coach in the game won the $10,000-entry Short Deck Event #29 for a top prize of $194,670.

Kornuth the King Once Again as Chance Wins Third Bracelet

Chance Kornuth won his third bracelet last night as he was victorious in Event #29, the $10,000 Short Deck event, where he defeated Chad Campbell to win his third WSOP bracelet. The final began with six players in seats and Kornuth held a slim chip lead over Campbell, who was one of four players at the table without a bracelet win in their careers.

Short-stacked Thomas Kysar was first to leave the action, and he was followed from the felt by the only other man to win WSOP gold previously in Joao Vieira. Israeli player Moshe Gabay busted in fourth place before Dan Shak missed out on the chance to win his first-ever WSOP bracelet.

Heads-up was a battle between the two men at the top of the chipcounts at the start of the day, as Kornuth overcame Chad Campbell and sealed victory in the Thunderdome.

Weisman the Winner in Pot Limit Omaha

Event #28 saw Dylan Weisman win his first-ever WSOP bracelet as he triumphed on the final day and took the gold at the expense of Craig Chait heads-up. Weisman’s first bracelet came in an event where the eliminations came thick and fast, with Weisman at the heart of many of them.

With a total of 1,069 entries and a prizepool of just over $950,000, Weisman was in control of much of the final table and entered heads up with a lead of 10:1 against Chait. With earlier players busted from the final table including Manan Bhandari (seventh for $22,787) and Alexander Yen (third for $74,239), Weisman’s win saw his friends hoist him on their shoulders and hurl him into the air.

The second starting flight of Event #30, the $1,500-entry event with an almost $4.7 million prizepool, saw 1,972 players build the total entries in the event to a whopping 3,520. Of the Day 1b entries, just 701 players made the cut, meaning that combined with Day 1a’s 518 survivors, just 1,219 remain in the hunt for the $610,347 top prize.

Day 1b’s chip leader at the close of play was Rajaee Wazwaz, whose pile of 510,500 chips dwarfed most, with the closest two challengers to Wazwaz being Pavel Plesuv (483,500) and Ryan Leng, who already has one 2021 live WSOP bracelet to his name. Elswhere in the top 10, there was also a spot for another newly-crowned WSOP champion in Dylan Linde (443,000), who will be hoping to add a no limit hold’em bracelet to his mixed game win the other day.

Event #31 saw the $1,500 No Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw event reach the final 10 players from a total field of 84 players. With Rep Porter the chip leader with 1,129,000 chips, the headlines will belong to Phil Hellmuth as the ‘reformed’ Poker Brat made his fourth final day of the Series so far, racking up 1,016,000 as Porter’s closest challenger.

Elsewhere in the final ten players, there was a bag for Italian WSOP Main Event runner-up Dario Sammartino, whose 800,000 chips represent a great chance for him to grab gold, while Jake Schwartz (398,000) and 2013 Main Event winner Ryan Riess (266,000) will go into play as short-stacks who have a wealth of experience to call upon.

Event #32 was the final event of the day to close play for the night as Saturday’s superstars of H.O.R.S.E. bagged up their chips and saddled up for the night. At the end of the night, Lithuanian player Vincas Tamasauskas held the chip lead with 197,000 chips, as John Fahmy (188,700) and Brian Hastings (178,400) followed him in the chipcounts.

Elsewhere, players such as Maria Ho (169,400), David Williams (168,900), John Monnette (120,600), Max Pescatori (106,100), Daniel Negreanu (95,900), Ari Engel (95,100), Eli Elezra (83,200) and Robert Mizrachi (79,700) all made Day 2, with stars such as Dan Shak, Cary Katz and Chino Rheem among those who were unable to make the next day, with around half of the 282 entries falling out of contention for the bracelet.
