Event #72: Mixed No-Limit Hold’em; Pot-Limit Omaha (8-Handed)

The music producer Motoyoshi Okamura just won his first bracelet yesterday by beating a 846 entries field in the $1,500 event. Okamura is quite new to the game as he started playing for just over a year, but the Japanese already seems quite successful at it as he also finished 2nd in a $10k Aria High Roller a week ago for $122k.

“Winning the bracelet has been a dream of mine,” said Okamura after winning. This is my first time playing the WSOP, and I will surely be back next time.”

Event #67: MAIN EVENT No-Limit Hold’em World Championship

We’re getting closer and closer from knowing who will make our final table as 36 players are left, and all will leave with at least $198k more in their pockets.

Currently leading with a stack of 29M is Hye Park, coming from Holmdel, New Jersey. He has total live earnings of $471k, his best performance being a $165k cash in a $1,600 event in Vegas three years ago.

End of day 6 chip leader Hye Park

Previous chip leaders Koray Aldemir and Ramon Colillas still occupy some top spots as they are 5th and 7th both with more than 18M in chips.

Our top remaining name is Chance Kornuth who sits with the 11th stack and 13M as we unfortunately lost Stephen Chidwick (89th) and Nick Petrangelo (45th) during day 6.

Event #73: Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship

137 entries have been registered for the $10k championship and $352k will go to the winner. Sixteen are left and lead by Brian Hastings but the competition will be hard as many top pros are still there in the names of Josh Arieh (4th), Scott Seiver (6th), Erik Seidel (7th) and Shaun Deeb (14th).

To end the day, let’s have a look at the current earnings leaderboard this year:
