Hand #50: Chicong Nguyen raised to 50,000 from the cutoff and Brian Kim three-bet to 75,000 from the big blind. Nguyen called, the flop fell {10-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Spades}, and Kim bet. Nguyen called, the {6-Hearts} appeared on the turn, and Kim bet again. Nguyen called off his last 14,000 and the hands were turned up.

Nguyen: {k-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}
Kim: {a-Hearts}{6-Spades}

Nguyen needed either a king or seven on the river, but it wasn't meant to be as the {j-Diamonds} bricked.

Who Will Walk Away with the $161,139 Top Prize and Latest WSOP Gold Bracelet?

The 2019 WSOP Event #66: $1,500 Limit Hold'em was scheduled as a three-day tournament, but with 541 hopefuls competing at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino an extra day was required. Today, the final six players will return. Each have secured $24,574 in prize money but all have their eyes on the top prize of $161,139, the title and a prestigious WSOP gold bracelet.

Starting the day as chip leader in the hunt for his second bracelet is David “ODB” Baker with a massive stack of 2,493,000. Baker, who also ended Days 2 and 3 in the chip leader position, bagged almost one million more than the second-largest stack held by Japan's Ruiko Mamiya, who sits with 1,551,000.

The final table was reached on Monday and a trio of eliminations occurred before play halted for the night. Three-time bracelet winner Greg Mueller exited in ninth place ($10,418). Mueller, who lost a few pots against Baker and Mamiya, was down to less than one big blind in the small blind position and called all-in with ace-three, running into Baker's ace-king. Mueller found no help on the board and had to renounce a chance at a fourth bracelet.

Next to leave was Danny Woolard in eighth place ($13,609). Woolard moved all in on the turn on a paired board with king-high and a straight draw while Baker had two pair and improved his hand into a full house on the river.

Kenneth Donoghue was out next in seventh ($18,118). He was down to three big blinds due to an unfortunate hand against Dominzo Love, who rivered a straight while Donoghue held a set of kings. A few minutes later he called all in on a five-high flop with jack-ten and was facing Mamiya who had king-queen. Two nines completed the board and Donoghue had to say goodbye.

Play resumes at Noon local time on the main feature table. The action will be live streamed on PokerGO at 1 p.m. while PokerNews will be offering live updates from the get-go.

Players will come back in Level 24 with blinds at 25,000/ 50,000 to contest for the bracelet.
