Another coveted gold bracelet at the 2018 World Series of Poker will be up for grabs today as Event #31: $1,500 Seven Card Stud is scheduled to play down to a winner as of 2 p.m. local time on the Twitch Stage in the Brasilia room. A total of 15 WSOP bracelets will be on display, as Chris Ferguson, Jeff Lisandro, Michael Moore and Frankie O'Dell all reached the unofficial nine-handed final table out of a 310-entry strong field.
The lion's share of the $418,500 prize pool is still up for grabs and all finalists have $6,451 locked up thus far, while the elusive gold bracelet and $105,629 await for the winner. Moore will return as the chip leader with a stack of 485,000, followed by Ferguson (375,000) and Lisandro (291,000), while O'Dell has four big bets upon restart with 74,000.
Taking on the existing WSOP bracelets in their pursuit to claim their own are Paul Sexton (276,000), music producer Steven Albini (270,000), Katherine Fleck (226,000), Esther Rossi (186,000) and Stephen Rivers (143,000). Fleck comes fresh off a 16th place finish in Event #27: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship and does have a 4th place in Event #49: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud at the 2016 WSOP to her name.
