An incredible day of action at the 2024 World Series of Poker saw six events produce four outright winners as Santosh Suvarna, Mostafa Haidary, Frank Funaro and Patrick Moulder all claimed titles in Las Vegas. Players such as Daniel Negreanu, Phil Ivey, Phil  Hui, James Obst, Gus Hansen, Josh Arieh and Chino Rheem all made the top 10 survivors in the $50k Poker Players Championship, while another epic day of drama in the Millionaire Maker rounded off events at the Horseshoe and Paris casinos. 

Suvarna the Champion in Super High Roller for First Bracelet 

Santhosh Suvarna won the $250,000 Super High Roller bracelet in Las Vegas last night after timing a final table sprint to the line perfectly. Suvarna, who beat Ben Tollerene head-up, had already seen overnight lead Adrian Mateos taken out by a Tollerene straight before he hit his own heads-up to stun the American online poker legend. 

It was must-see poker TV on PokerGO and you can read all about Suvarna's epic victory right here in our full recap

Haidary Goes Wire-to-Wire in NLHE Event 

Australian player Mo Haidary won the first WSOP bracelet of his poker career as he beat German player Bernd Gleissner heads-up to claim the $5,000-entry Event #52 title and a whopping $656,747 top prize. Coming into play as chip leader on the fourth and final day of the event, Haidary only faced three opponents with an extra day required at the Horseshoe to complete the tournament. 

Haidary took out Brandon Schwartz in fourth when the latter's nine-deuce suited couldn't overtake Haidary's 'Jackson Five' of jack-five, a jack landing on the flop to immediately throw cold water on any hopes of a heater for Schwartz. Bulgarian Krasimir Yankov lost with ace-ten to Gleissner's queen-eight and Gleissner might have hoped to use that hand as a springboard for success. However, with him still behind in chips, his pocket threes couldn't hold against Haidary's ace-nine as a nine came in the window to end the event. 

As Haidary won the fabled WSOP bracelet and $656,747, he said he couldn't wait to celebrate with his family and all his emotions poured out of him. For so many, winning a WSOP bracelet is an unfulfilled dream. Mo Haidary showed us once again that if you keep trying, dreams really can come true at the poker felt in Las Vegas.

Patrick Moulder Becomes Champion, Deeb Out in Sixth

Patrick Moulder won the Mixed Triple Draw Event #56 last night, as the $2,500-entry tournament concluded with him getting the better of Canada's Ian Chan heads-up. At a final table where players such as Anthony Hu (7th for $19,106) and Shaun Deeb (6th for $26,033) both went deep, Chad Eveslage's elimination to Moulder in fifth place was key.

Making heads-up with a lot less than Chan, Moulder still had a lot of work to do to claim gold but did so after he won in the same game he busted Eveslage in, A-5 Triple Draw to win the bracelet and $177,045 top prize.

Obst Crushing, Ivey and Negreanu in Top 10 of Poker Players Championship

Event #58, the $50,000-entry Poker Players Championship saw Aussie James Obst on top as 58 players remained at the close of Day 1 in the PPC, the one they all want to win. Obst took care of Polish player Dzmitry Urbanovich on his way to dominating Day 1as he bagged 1,208,000 chips at the end of the day, a little ahead of Aaron Katz (1,192,500). 

Legends of the felt such as former PPC winner Phil Hui (733,000), Danish Poker Million winner Gus Hansen (652,500), 11-time WSOP champ Phil Ivey (567,000), PokerGO crusher Chino Rheem (567,000) and Poker Hall of Famer Daniel Negreanu (543,000) all made it inside the top ten spots.

Others such as John Hennigan (523,500), Michael Mizrachi (489,000), Josh Arieh (477,000), John Racener (414,000) and Viktor Blom (389,000) will all be looking for strong Day 2s to boost their chances of victory, with Blom going for his third podium place in three $50,000+ events, having come third in both the $50,000 and $100,000 WSOP High Roller events earlier this month.

The Swede is yet to win a WSOP bracelet and there'd be no better event to do so in, as the winner not only gets millions of dollars and the gold but their name on the legendary Chip Reese trophy.
