There were 1,914 players who exchanged $1.500 at the registration desk for 4,500 tournament chips when Event #44: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em began on Saturday. Now, just 15 of those players are still in contention for the gold WSOP bracelet and the top prize of $478,102.
It's the final day of this event, and Brandon Ageloff will have the honor of being the only player with over one million chips (1,007,000) when action resumes at 1 p.m. He has a very slim lead over Ray Foley who has 993,000. At these blind levels, the difference is less than a big blind.
Jason Johnson was the chip leader going into Day 2 of this event, and he continued to maintain a large stack throughout the day, bagging up the third-most chips with 779,000. Jordan Morgan, Vinny Pahuja, and Roberto Romanello are other familiar names among the final 15.
All players are now guaranteed $21,575 for their deep run in this event, and those who make the final table of nine players will make at least $35,063.
