The 10th day of action in the 2024 World Series of Poker saw some of the world's best poker players clash at the felt. There were three bracelets won in total, as Robert Mizrachi, Timothy Murphy and Caleb Furth all scooped gold, while six more events in progress made it the busiest day of WSOP action so far this summer.

Robert Mizrachi Claims Fifth Bracelet in Dealer's Choice 

The $10,000-entry Dealer's Choice Championship saw Robert Mizrachi seal yet another mixed game victory as the American bagged his fifth WSOP bracelet in style.

The final day's action was an additional one to three prior days in Event #13 and saw just a trio of top talents begin play with the bracelet on the line. Mizrachi had a slim lead going into the three-handed final day but quickly made it a wider gap between him and Michael Martinelli in second place. Those two players got heads-up when Mizrachi took most of the Japanese player Ryutaro Suzuki's chips in 2-7 Triple Draw, Michael Martinelli busting Suzuki in the next hand. 

Mizrachi held a 2:1 chip lead courtesy of the early action on the hastily-added Day 4 of the event and stretched his lead almost immediately. Martinelli couldn't catch up and one final hand of Pot Limit 2-7 Triple Draw ended the battle for the bracelet inside an hour.

Mizrachi declared his intention to play a raft of WSOP events in the aftermath of victory and will be a dangerous opponent for anyone in mixed game events, his speciality.

Furth Wins First Bracelet in PLO Domination

Caleb Furth won his first WSOP bracelet after returning to the flet on the final day as chip leader and seeing the job through to win gold in Las Vegas.

With 14 players returning on Day 3, Furth didn't have it all his own way as the Day 1 chip leader Daniel Lowery doubled through the chip leader with a full house. Furth responded by taking out Sean Troha in 11th place and then Lowery himself in 10th place to head into the nine-handed final with a big lead and made it count when it mattered in the latter stages.

Jason Daly was the first player to leave the action after the final table began, and he was soon followed from the felt by Austria's Mathias Bayer and the two-time WSOP bracelet winner Tom Koral, as the most experienced player at the table departed. Jiyang Gan emerged as Furth's biggest challenger, eliminating Andreas Frohli, before a chopped pot between Furth and Gan took out Walter Chambers in third place for $125,665. 

Heads-up, Gan's inability to take all of Chambers' chips meant he faced a big chip deficit of 6:1 but the Chinese player more than matched his opponent and the heads-up battle lasted 90 minutes as the chips almost evened up before Furth pulled away again. A crucial rivered full house gave the American control once more and with Gan down to five big blinds, he was finished off soon after to leave Furth celebrating a famous win, his first WSOP title and the top prize of $265,361.

Timothy Murphy Wins 'Dream' Bracelet After $800 NLHE Victory

Day 2 of the $800-entry NLHE Deepstack event saw 310 players return to the action but while there were scores of big names involved, such as the overnight leader James Calderaro and six-time WSOP title winner Shaun Deeb, it was the relatively unknown Timothy 'TJ' Murphy who landed the title and top prize of $368,977 in Las Vegas. 

The first break arrived with just 136 players still in seats, moments after Deeb had busted in 138th place. Calderaro lasted considerably longer but nevertheless busted in 63rd place, some way from the action at the final table.

By the time the final nine sat down to play to a winner from the same piece of felt, Murphy was on the charge and the elimination of the only non-American player, former bracelet winner and British professional Harry Lodge, in ninth place boosted his hopes. 

Raymond Mancini was the only opponent who proved tricky to defeat for TJ, who met his final foe heads-up, holding a chip lead of around 120 million chips to Mancini's 70 million. A queen-high straight did for Mancini's ten-high straight and the bracelet and the top prize went to an ecstatic Murphy, who yelled out: "Not bad for my fifth WSOP tournament, huh?!" before shaking the hand of the dealer, quipping "Thanks for that ten, dude."

Ochana Leads Final Seven into $5k 8-Max Final Day

Eddie Ochana leads the final seven into the last day of action in the $5,000-entry Event #16, the 8-Max NLHE event. The American's huge stack of 14,115,000 chips is well clear of Alexander Queen's 8,865,000 and Brent Hart's 8,360,000 but at least they look to have a chance of victory. Every other one of the seven have fewer than a quarter of Ochana's stack as they bid to climb the ladder and hope for a late miracle to save their bracelet chances. 

The top prize of $660,284 eluded stars of the felt such as Kenny Hallaert (39th), Ian Matakis (37th) and Brian Rast (24th) who all busted on the penultimate day of the event but everyone who did bust will at least feel better than 10-time WSOP bracelet winner Erik Seidel, who was leading with flush over flush when all his chips were at risk only for his opponent to river a straight flush and take out the New Yorker and poker legend. Ouch.

Polish player Grzegorz Derkowski leads the remaining 10 players in Event #18, the $1,500-entry PLO event. With stars such as Phil Ivey, Scott Ball and Erick Lindgren all being eliminated early, just 11 players were left when Derkowski busted Matthew Parry and bagged a huge chip lead. Sitting on 9.68 million chips, Derkowski's only opponent who has over half of his stack is Dylan Weisman. Indeed, the mixed game specialist will be a threat. Behind those two players, however, only Greek player Andreas Zampas has over a third of the Polish chip leader's pile of chips. 

With other WSOP $25K Fantasy Draft players Chino Rheem and Daniel Zack still in there scrapping for points, nothing is cut and dried but for all the quality in the field, it is Derkowski's title to lose. The Polish player has never got anywhere near this close to a bracelet before. See it out and his dream will be made. Fail in that ambition and it could be anyone's bracelet.

Marco Makes Push for Glory 

A total of 133 players began play on Day 2 of the $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship and by the close of play the bubble had burst and just 14 remained. With a prize pool of $1.23 million, just 20 made the money in the event, with six-time bracelet winner Josh Arieh bubbling the event in 21st place.

The top prize on offer is $308,930 and while players such as Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Shaun Deeb, and Eli Elezra are no longer involved, chip leader is the two-time bracelet winner Marco Johnson who stacked up 1,100,000 by the close of play on Day 2. 

Behind Johnson, Anthony Marsico (985,000) and Justin Kusumowidagdo (880,000) are close by and have the experience to make the final day count, while Andrew Kelsall (310,000), Dan Shak (295,000), Nick Schulman (245,000), and John Racener (210,000) will still love their chances of taking gold tomorrow.

Wilson Leads $25 High Roller With Legends Chasing Gold 

Event #21, the $25,000 entry 6-Max NLHE Event, saw a massive 216 entries on Day 1, with registration open on Day 2 to players who either haven't entered or have only fired one bullet. With a current prize pool of over $5 million, this could be one of the most exciting WSOP bracelet events of the summer.

Of the initial raft of entrants, just 76 bagged a Day 2 stack, with Brandon Wilson the chip leader on over 1.38 million chips. Michael Jozoff, (1,127,000), Rainer Kempe (858,000), Michael Rocco (790,000), Justin Saliba (767,000), Justin Bonomo (715,000), Chance Kornuth (412,000), Phil Ivey (411,000) and Daniel Negreanu (126,000) all making the cut.

Not surviving to the table draw for Day 2 were legends like Adrian Mateos (who lost both bullets), Alex Kulev, Stephen Chidwick, and either of the former world champions Espen Jorstad and Koray Aldemir.

Two Other Events in Action 

Two other bracelet events took place, with Event #20 being the $300 buy-in 'Gladiators of Poker' event - the cheapest of the entire 2024 World Series of Poker. With 3,792 players, just 124 made it to Day 2, with Caleb Levesque turning a 30,000 starting stack into the lead with 3.14 million chips. Elsewhere, Mystery Millions seven-dollar bounty puller DJ Buckley considered it good value to play the $300 tournament and was vindicated in that decision when he bagged 1.23 million, good for 25th place out of the remaining 124 when play ended. Surely he couldn't do it again...?

Finally, Event #22, the $1,500-entry Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw event saw 574 entries, with 157 players led to Day 2 by Bradley Maltz (385,000). Others chasing the $766,290 prize pool money places included Carol Fuchs (218,500), Nathan Gamble (202,000) Benny Glaser (201,500), Tom Franklin (186,000) and Lawrence Brandt (184,500), all of whom sit inside the top ten players remaining.
