Despite the schedule suggesting otherwise, no WSOP bracelets were won inside the Rio today.
Although Event #53 started the day with only 25 players in contention for the $665,397 top prize, the resilience of the remaining few meant the session was brought to an unexpected close with three survivors.Two bad beats involving David Vamplew (one that went his way and one that didn’t) ensured that a final heads-up battle was delayed long enough for Jack Effel to pause the tournament clock.Leading the way when the final chips were bagged up earlier today was Vamplew with 5,345,000 just ahead of Brett Shaffer on 5,285,000 and Finland’s Arttu Raekorpi holding 2,055,000.While Event #53 was unable to get rid of its final players, Event #55, The Poker Players Championship, was busy adding a few more names to its roster. Having welcomed 120 players yesterday and playing down to 113, a handful of late entrants were allowed to ante-up their $50,000 today and take the overall number of runners to 132.The impressive field managed to generate a prize pool of more than six million dollars, which means that the eventual winner will walk away with a top prize of $1,774,089.Currently leading the way after a second day of action is David Benyamine. Having outlasted the likes of Phil Ivey and Michael Mizrachi, Benyamine was able to finish on top with 729,000 chips ahead of Jonathan Duhamel on 666,100 and Matthew Ashton with 635,500.
