Four players remained with two of them Portuguese, but Neves took out his countryman Jose Carlos Brito in fourth place for $417,213. 

Three-handed, Jerry Maher was the player who missed out on heads-up, winning $550,920 when he lost a coinflip against Neves.

Vitch Takes the Win in PLO 

A terrific final table took place in Event #48, the $1,000-entry PLO event, as Chris Vitch won his third WSOP title in the past decade. It was David Prociak who led the field when the final table began, but while the player with one bracelet in place already this series started off well, Prociak would bust in third place when he couldn;t beat Thomas Taylor's pocket kings. 

Kings were good for Taylor in that instance but they didn't help him in the final hand. Already losing 3:1 in chips when heads-up play began, Taylor made a queen-high flush in the final hand only for Chris Vitch to win with a king-high flush. 

After victory, Vitch declared himself keen to turn one win into many more ove the coming weeks. With each player's best 10 results only contributing to their Player of the Year standings, the talented Vitch might just be an outside pick to finish in the top ten if he continues this form.

Park Puts on a Fast Show 

Peter Park took down the $1,000-entry Super Turbo Bounty event in fine style last night as the 51st event of the 2024 WSOP was finsihed inside one day's play. Taking home $240,724 and the gold bracelet, Park beat his fellow American Mark Dube heads-up for the title after both men had won the majority of the eliminations on a collision course for the final showdown. 

After Joe Kuether lost to Jose Rodriguez in 9th place, Julio Novo busted in 8th place, and Zhigang Yang and Rodriguez himself then lost to kings and aces repsectively. With three players left, it looked like Mark Dube might be the man to win the bracelet. It was a final table that featured nine players without a bracelet and the excitment that comes with nine potential winners was evident. 

Park's run to the title began with his ace-jack winning againt Dube's queen-nine, but if Dube felt he was unlucky in losing that hand, he won with a dominated hand to rediuce the field to two. His ace-jack won against Adria Diaz's ace-king and just two remained. Dube couldn't close it out, however, his king-three losing to Park's ten-nine with the bracelet on the line. Soon, Park had the better hand, his ace-three holding against Dube's queen-four and the bracelet went his way, as well as the $240,724 top prize.

Leah and Pisarenko Stun Fans With Wantaway Final

Just five players came into play on the supposed final day of the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship, but with just two left, Mike Leah and Maksim Pisarenko decided to take a break and return at their convenience to conclude the event in the hope of winning the bracelet. 

With Russian player Pisarenko (5,720,000) leading the Canadian Mike Leah (5,145,000) in pursuit of the $399,988 top prize, Leah is shooting for bracelet number two with Pisarenko seeking his first WSOP gold. Benny Glaser came into play with the chip lead but departed in fifth place for $93,094 as the mixed game specialist missed the chance for his sixth WSOP title.

The opportunity also passed by Steve Zolotow (4th) and Lawrence Brandt (3rd) as Leah, who had started the day with by far the shortest stack, ran it up to end the day just a big raise behind the Russian Pisarenko. 

When both players resume, we'll let you know who won. That could be any time, but the bracelet will be on the line and the conclusion of the event is sure to be dramatic, with the remaining pair potentially level on a bracelet each or two apart instead by the end of this long-running tournament which will enter a surprise fifth day. 

Henry the Hero on Seniors Championship Day 2
