Today starts where yesterday left off, with heads up play between Nikolaus Teichert and Vincent Maglio. Play concluded yesterday after ten levels when Teichert decided against extending play for an additional level.
The heads up match began with the players nearly even in chips but Teichert comes into today sporting a slight lead with 7,620,000 to Maglio's 5,415,000. Both players have their eyes on the first place price of $730,756 and the World Series of Poker gold bracelet. It would be the first bracelet for either player with this being the first WSOP cash for Teichert and the second for Maglio.
Resuming play after a good night's sleep, should prove for an interesting day on the felt. Play resumes on the secondary feature table at 1 p.m. local time. Stay with PokerNews for continuing hand-for-hand coverage as the newest gold bracelet is awarded.
