A lineup of poker's most well-rounded players competes for a coveted mixed-game WSOP bracelet today. Just ten players remain in Event #23: $1,500 Eight Game Mix 6-Handed, and that field will trim down to the latest champion at the 2021 World Series of Poker today.
Day 3 begins at 2 p.m. today, and plays down to a champion. The final ten players include five former WSOP bracelet winners, along with five players seeking their first series championship.
Two-time WSOP bracelet winner Ryan Hughes (2,534,000) leads the field going into the final day. Both of Hughes previous bracelet wins came in Seven Card Stud events, and he looks to add a mixed-game championship to his list of accomplishments today.
The road to a championship won't be easy for Hughes or anyone else still in the hunt. Also in contention are players like two-time bracelet winner Connor Drinan (1,990,000), who comes into Day 3 second in the chip counts.
Drinan looks to win his second bracelet at the 2021 WSOP. The American tournament crusher took down Event #5: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better earlier in the series.
Just behind Hughes and Drinan in the chip counts are Schuyler Thornton (1,505,000), Tyler Willse (1,165,000), Hunter McClelland (1,110,000), George Alexander (936,000), and Brandon Bergin (934,000). All of those players are looking to claim their first career WSOP bracelet.
A trio of former bracelet winners round out the final ten names in the field, including Brett Shaffer (800,000), Ryan Leng (777,000), an Daniel Zack (384,000).
The action restarts at Level 26 today, and plays through 60-minute levels until a champion is reached. Players will get 15-minute breaks after every two levels, as well as a dinner break at a time to be determined.
