Just 15 players remain after a thrilling second day of play in WSOP Event #10: $10,000 Dealer’s Choice 6-Handed Championship, with a star-studded field remaining set to play for the bracelet on Tuesday.

Randy Ohel (1,101,000) is the lone player to finish the day with over 1,000,000 in chips as he carries the lead to the Bally’s Event Center for the final day of play. Fellow World Series of Poker bracelet winners Naoya Kihara (927,000) and Nick Schulman (904,000) aren’t far behind, with a total of 24 WSOP bracelets still remaining in the field, spread out among ten of the final 15 players.

The Day's Action

The day began with several maximum late entrants that pushed the total field to a record-breaking 123 entries, with Schulman the only one of the Day 2 entries to survive.

The field was whittled down to just 25 players by dinner break with multiple stars falling shy of the money by that point including Phil Hellmuth, Shaun Deeb, and David Benyamine to name just a few.

After another couple of levels, it was Mike Matusow that was eliminated on the bubble, providing the final 19 players a guaranteed trip to the pay window for at least $16,264. Among those collecting that amount after their eliminations were Nacho Barbero in 19th place and Nick Guagenti in 18th place.

It wasn’t until late in the night that two more players were sent home with their hopes of a bracelet dashed, as Ian O'Hara fell in 17th place after a valiant effort to come back from just 6,000 chips after a bold bluff in Badugi. Then shortly after that, Jean-Robert Bellande was the tournament’s 16th place finisher.

Day 3 Ahead

The final 15 will now come back at 2 p.m. local time to play down to a winner, who will take home $299,488 and the prestigious WSOP gold bracelet.

Play will begin at level 18 with 90-minute rounds, as they were Monday, until a champion is crowned.

Stay tuned to PokerNews, as we’ll have all the action from this and every event from the new home of the World Series of Poker at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas.

Badacey

Jean-Robert Bellande never really recovered from the setback not long ago and then defended out of the big blind against Anatolii Zyrin, who had a near identical short stack. He check-called all the way and on the last draw, Bellande took two while Zyrin patted.

Bellande checked and Zyrin moved all-in for around 20,000, which had Bellande covered by a few chips.

Zyrin revealed the {3-Spades} / {7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{a-Spades} for a seven seven and Bellande tossed his cards into the muck before heading to the payout desk. For his 16th place, he collects $16,264.

Le Chips Up Through Madsen With Sheer Aggression

[user38873] • Nivo 17

Pot-Limit Omaha

Jeff Madsen raised to 22,000 and Tuan Le then three-bet the pot for 78,000 on the button. Once Madsen confirmed the exact sizing, he came along and checked the {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop. Le bet 50,000 for Madsen to call and the {8-Clubs} followed on the turn.

Madsen checked once more and Le fired a bet worth 175,000 to eventually break through the resistance of his opponent.

No-Limit Hold'em

After dropping to a short stack of around 45,000 once more, Ian O'Hara open jammed out of the small blind and was called by fellow short stack Mark Gregorich in the big blind.

Ian O'Hara: {k-Spades}{9-Spades}
Mark Gregorich: {a-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

Neither player connected with the {q-Spades}{8-Clubs}{4-Hearts} flop and {6-Hearts} turn. The {7-Clubs} on the river only improved Gregorich and O'Hara had to settle for 17th place, which comes with a payday of $16,264.
