Out of a bumper field of 3,759 players, just ten are left standing on the final day of Event #53: $800 No-Limit Hold’em Deepstack 8-Handed. At 1 p.m., they'll all return to the Amazon outer feature tables to continue their quest until a bracelet winner has been decided. Action will be live streamed from 7 p.m. onwards on CBS All Access.
Amir Lehavot, third in the 2013 WSOP Main Event behind Ryan Riess and Jay Farber and 2011 bracelet winner, is among the final ten and sits third in chips with 20,175,000 to capture his second bracelet. Leading the way is Santiago Soriano with 28,300,000 in chips. Daniele D'Angelo is second with 21,415,000). Benjamin Underwood (11,350,000) made the final table of two Deepstack events earlier this summer, and once again made his way through an enormous field for his third deep run of the series.
Blinds will resume in level 36 with blinds at 250,000/500,000 and a big blind ante of 500,000, while levels will be 40 minutes throughout the day. While each of them has already parlayed their $800 investment into a fantastic payday of $31,399, all eyes are on the coveted wristband and first place prize of $371,203 that awaits the winner at the end of the night. The PokerNews live reporting team will be on the floor to capture every hand and all the excitement from the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino as a new bracelet winner is crowned.
