Today, 18 players return to the felt for the Final Day of Event #27: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E., live here at The Rio Hotel and Casino. All the returning players will be playing down to an eventual winner today. Each remaining participant will go home with at least $5,255, while one lucky winner will take home a brand new coveted WSOP gold bracelet alongside the $160,636 first-place cash.
The penultimate day saw Anthony Zinno (2,565,000) take the chip lead about midway through the day, and he did not look back. He carries an almost 2-1 chip advantage versus his nearest competitor, Kao Saechao(1,395,000), going into the start of this final day, with Zinno chasing bracelet number four of his poker career; and number two of the 2021 WSOP.
Also still in the tournament, and seeking to add another WSOP gold bracelet to their collection, are Randy Ohel (1,040,000), Max Pescatori (850,000), Joe McKeehen (835,000), and Ari Engel (300,000). Look for these experienced pros to keep things sharp from the moment the cards are pitched in the air until a new winner has been chosen.
Please join us on PokerNews for live updates up until the end, or live here at The Rio Hotel and Casino in the Amazon Room, where the cards are set to be in the air at 2:00 p.m. (PST) local time.
