While there was 45 bracelets worth of talent to begin the day in Event #46: $1,500 Razz, not a single one remains as nine players are left, each of whom is seeking their first taste of World Series of Poker gold. Among those headlining the final table are Adam Owen, who bagged up 340,000 chips, and Dzmitry Urbanovich, who bagged up 248,000 chips. Leading the way is another WSOP star, Kevin Iacofano who boasts over $800,000 in World Series of Poker earnings. He'll bring 514,000 chips into Day 3, leading the final table.

Some of those bracelet winners to fall early in the day and before the money included the likes of Phil Hellmuth, Barry Greenstein, John Hennigan, Benjamin Scholl, Matt Grapenthien and Max Pescatori to name a few. Brandon Cantu was another bracelet winner who didn't make it to the end of the day, but he did sneak into the money. On the final hand of the bubble, Cantu tanked it out until Rebecca Kerl had been eliminated. After her bust, Cantu called off the rest of his chips on seventh street holding a nine-eight low, but his opponent, Thomas Taylor, held a wheel and sent Cantu to the rail as the second player to bust in the money.

Other bracelet winners to slip into the payout were Chris Bjorin (50th - $2,322), Benny Glaser (44th - $2,471), Cyndy Violette (39th - $2,471), John Cernuto (34th - $2,702), John Racener (33rd - $2,702) and Ylon Schwartz (26th - $3,034). Julien Martini and David Singer both made it close the final table, but fell in 16th ($4,131) and 12th ($6,206) respectively, with Singer being the last bracelet winner standing. In his final hand, Singer drew and eight-six low, but Jay Kwon made an eight-five low to send the bracelet winner out the door.

Dzmitry Urbanovich has had much success outside of the World Series of Poker, but is making his first final table in this event. Besides the bracelet, there is also a first-place cash of $125,431 up for grabs.

Action will resume at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 26, in level 21 with limits of 10,000 and 20,000 and antes of 2,000. The plan is to play down to a winner and PokerNews will return with coverage from top to bottom. Action will kick back off in the Amazon room of the Rio at one of the outer feature tables.
