Event #85: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Handed

Alan Sternberg reigned victorious in this PLO tournament to capture his first-ever bracelet along with $448,392 in prize money. Sternberg entered the final table fourth in chips “Coming into today, my goal was to at least make top four and then I got hit with the deck of cards. I made the best hand a lot so that makes it pretty easy.” He defeated Evangelos Kokkalis for the final heads-up.

Event #73: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event

The 2019 World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Event is just one day away from crowning a champion as the final trio remains out of a field of 8,569 entries with a WSOP Main Event bracelet for the winner and the payday of $10,000,000 that comes along with it.

Hossein Ensan finished Day 7 and 8 at the top of the leaderboard and made it three in a row by establishing a commanding lead at the end of Day 9. Ensan increased his stack by more than 50% on the day and bagged up 326,800,000.

That’s nearly two times as many chips as Alex Livingston (120,400,000) and Dario Sammartino (67,600,000) have combined at their disposal.

Event #86: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed Championship

Gal Yifrach had a day to remember after he went from start-of-day short stack to final six chip leader in just over four hours in Event #86. When the final 16 returned to action, Yifrach had just 319,000, but by the end of the play, the American bagged a massive 5,385,000 for the clear lead at the top.

Yifrach will be favorite to win this tournament but he will be challenged by Anuj Agarwal (4,350,000), Dong Chen (2,540,000), Kahle Burns(1,855,000), Leonard Maue (1,495,000) and Ben Heath (710,000).
