Quite the same type of story for Austria’s player Ismael Bojang, after his 2nd place at last year WSOP $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em event, he finished this $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha event #40 at the place all the 1,216 players dreamed about.

WSOP Day 21 Digest

Our winner of the day is named Robert Mitchell, winning the large Event #37 with its 2,808 entries. Robert is not very well known from the masses as he has a “little” $566,654 in total live earnings, his biggest performance until now being a 52nd place in the 2015 Main Event for $137,300.

A happy bracelet winner

On the side of our notables, we can notice the surprising presence of Phil Ivey, ending a deep run at the 64th. It looks like the 10-bracelets owner might be interested again in the climbing the ranks of greatness. In the legacy category, current “being the greatest” Phil Hellmuth has signed his 6th cash in the series.

Now let’s have a quick look at our other events:

In the Event #34: $1,000 Double Stack No-Limit Hold’em, Joseph Cheong, 3rd in the 2010 Main Event, leads in the final table at 6 left with 40% of the chips.

And we’ll have another very interesting final table in Event #41: $10,000 Seven Card Stud, as it’s no other than Daniel Negreanu that leads the debates at 7 left in the final table, with slightly less than 30% of the total chips. Also present in this final table are Frank Kassela (3rd, 3 bracelets) and John Hennigan (4th, 5 bracelets).

Will Daniel Negreanu grab a 7th bracelet to reach Billy Baxter and Men Nguyen in the all time race? Can’t wait!
