Scott Seiver became a seven-time WSOP bracelet winner in Las Vegas last night as the American took down his third title of the summer. Likely now to win the 2024 WSOP Player of the Year, Seiver's win was the only bracelet handed out on a day where five tournaments were in action. 

Seiver Scoops Third Bracelet of the Summer

Scott Seiver won his third bracelet of the summer as he beat Jonathan Krela heads-up for gold after players such as Jeremy Ausmus and Jennifer Harman just missed out on glory. While Ausmus has six bracelets to his name, Harman hasn't won one in several years, which made Seiver's achievment all the more impressive. 

Read all about how Seiver won his third WSOP bracelet of the summer and his seventh across his amazing career right here in our full recap of the event.

Kerstetter and Okamoto on Collision Course?

Jamie Kerstetter has the opportunity to win her first WSOP bracelet after reaching the final day of the $1,000-entry Ladies Championship. Piling up a stack of 9.33 million chips, Kerstetter has five talented female players in her way, but will be confident of going above a million dollars in tournament takings across a glittering career of personal achievements. 

Behind the two-time Global Poker Award winner as Best Twitter Personality sits last year's runner-up, Shiina Okamoto. Determined to go one place better this year, the Japanese player will be a tough adversary and isn't far behind Kerstetter with 8,640,000 chips. Others to survive include Linda Durden (3,110,550), Mor Kamber (1,755,000), Cecile Ticherfatine (1,100,000) and Ceci Liao (970,000). 

Some to bust on the penultimate day included chess grandmaster and poker player Jennifer Shahade, content creation genius Marle Spragg and two players with female award wins in their back-story, Nadya Magnus and Cherish Andrews.
