Today, the final 10 players of Event #36: $10,000 Dealer's Choice Championship will battle it out on the green felt until a champion is crowned. Jake Schwartz enters Day 3 best positioned to take home the WSOP gold bracelet and $248,350 first-place prize with his 1.38 million in chips. Not far behind him, however, is two-time defending champion Adam Friedman, who is the only other player currently with over a million in chips (1.329 million).
Of course, several other top tournament players round out the final ten and will also be looking to take home the gold, including Daniel Negreanu, Mike Matusow, Mike Gorodinsky, and Phil Hellmuth — who is still fresh off his 16th bracelet victory and will be looking to further cement his poker legacy. Of the ten remaining players, eight are WSOP bracelet winners.
