Six bracelet events took place on Day 13 of the 2024 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. With two outright wins, a thrilling day for poker legends in the $25,000 High Roller and a packed fourth flight of the $300-entry Gladiators of Poker event, there was something for everyone at the Horseshoe and Paris Casinos on the Las Vegas Strip.

Sepiol Wins First Bracelet in Stunning Shootout Comeback 

Daniel Sepiol won his first-ever WSOP bracelet on Sunday as he captured a top prize of $305,849 and the gold he'd been dreaming of in Las Vegas. Winning the final table of the Shootout event, costing $1,500 to play, Sepiol outlasted Jeremy Ausmus, Daniel Strelitz and Scott Ball at the final table, coming out on top after a staggering heads-up comeback. 

When the final day began, 16 players were in seats and all level as they fought for the gold. Jeremy Ausmus made it to the final table, but it was the Philippines player Robert Natividad who took initial control of it, busting '24 bracelet winner Darius Samual in 10th before taking out Aaron Pinson in 9th, both times having pocket aces. 

Scott Ball busted in eight before the impressive Daniel Strelitz slid out in fifth place. Ausmus got short to lose to Sepiol with ace-high pre-flop, as the eventual winner's queen-high got there to take out his most dangerous remaining opponent. James Davidson busted to Natividad in third, and the Philippines player had a big chip lead. that grew to over 15:1 in chips but Sepiol performed miracles to come back from the dead and a big bluff saw him grab the lead.

In the final hand, top pair on the flop outdid a straight draw and Sepiol, beside himself with happiness had the win and the bracelet he craved.

Vampan Leads Final 10 in Limit Hold'em Event 

Daniel Vampan has a big lead in Event #25, the $3,000-entry Limit Hold'em Six-Handed event. With just 10 players left, the only former bracelet winner is the Canadian player Daniel Idema. He will start on just 130,000 chips, however, a long way behind Vampan on a stack of 2.47 million.

Only two players have a stack that is over half of Vampan's pile, with Frank Yakubson (1.65m) and Daniel Maczuga (1.5m) the leader's closest challengers but many poker fans will be cheering for fifth-placed Roland Israelishvili to triumph. The American achieved his record-extending result of becoming the only player to cash 500 in WSOP events in this event, but has never won a bracelet. 

Could Israelishvili break his duck tomorrow?

High Rollers Assemble for Marvel-lous Match-up

A busy first day of action took place in the $25,000-entry High Roller Event #26, as 274 entrants completed eight 60-minute levels with just 99 players remaining. With late registration still available on Day 2, as well as a single re-entry for anyone who busted on Day 1, yet more legends are expected to take part.

Samuel Laskowitz turned 150,000 starting chips into a chip lead with 1,211,000 after the first day's play, with Chino Rheem (1,101,000) close behind. Chino, who already has a runner-up result in this year's WSOP to his name, coming second to Dylan Weisman earlier this week, would move top of the WSOP Player of the Year leaderboard with victory. 

Last week, Brek Schutten won the 6-Max version of this event, so life-changing money is likely to be on the line, with Galen Hall (1,026,000), Dario Sammartino (1,030,000) and Phi Ivey (838,000) all making the top 10. Behind them, Poker Hall of Famers Daniel Negreanu (482,000) and Erik Seidel (389,000) sit on over twice their starting chips, while Jesse Lonis (761,000), Dan Smith (719,000), and Philip Sternheimer (696,000) will all be hoping a strong Day 1 sees them make the money and the final day of the action.

Two More Events Conclude on Day 1

Two more events had busy Day 1 flights on the 13th day of action in Las Vegas this WSOP. Event #20, the $300-entry Gladiators of Poker event, saw the fourth - and final - flight of the event conclude with 5,388 entrants taking part. That brings the overall attendance of the event to over 19,000 and will surely see the biggest prize for a $300 event awarded at its conclusion.

Brazilian former WSOP bracelet winner Rafael Reis   performed well, bagging up 2,000,000 chips for 40 big blinds, while Rajaee Wazwaz (1,240,000) Quincy Borland (1,040,000), Hassan Kamoei (555,000), and Pei Li (540,000) will all be hopeful of grabbing gold in a few days time. Day 2 takes place tomorrow and promises to be very special indeed.

Finally, Day 1 of the $1,500 Big O event took place and saw 1,555 entries reduced to 232 survivors, the money bubble bursting three places before bagging up. Sammy Farha (590,000) took the lead into Day 2, with Damjan Radanov (520,000), Yuval Bronshtein (425,000), Calvin Anderson (335,000) and Michael Mizrachi (301,000) all comfortably inside the top 40 places.
