Event #18: Mixed Triple Draw Lowball  (Limit)

The $2,500 event attracted 253 players and Vladimir Peck got out with the bracelet and $134,390. Peck managed to survive in the tournament while having less than one big bet at multiple occasions.

The player declared after the tournament:

“This is fun and reminds me more of playing poker as a kid where it was essentially Dealer’s Choice. All these different random games, we just played a bunch of different games.”

Event #19: Seven Card Stud Championship

Anthony Zinno finally came on top of this very competitive final table and captured his third bracelet. The also three-time WPT champion recently crossed the $10M mark in total live earnings.

Zinno denied another chance for Phil Helmuth to win a 16th bracelet and later praised his game: “Hellmuth’s overall poker game is phenomenal. It’s so underrated by a lot of the poker community. They just don’t know what it’s like to sit and play, for example, short-handed mixed games with Hellmuth”.

Event #20: Flip & Go No Limit Hold’em

A first bracelet for Dejuante Alexander in this $1,000 event allows him to bring back home a nice $180,665 check. Alexander is a regular at the WSOP as he already cashed 55 times for $1,215,216. He notably got second in the 2017 millionaire maker for $754,499.

In this event he notably eliminated David Peters at 4 left when he called with KQ for almost all his stack against Peters’s KJ.
