wsop 2021 bracelet update

No new bracelet winners on Thursday means we put our focus on the ongoing action of a half-dozen events at the 2021 World Series of Poker.

Ben Lamb is in the driver’s seat for a bracelet in the $25k Pot Limit Omaha High Roller, the first two flights of the Senior’s event combine while Brian Rast and Eli Elezra threaten in the Nine Game Mix.

A look at these events and more in Friday’s WSOP report.

Ongoing action

Ben Lamb leads $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller

The $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller was completed Day 2 with 25 out of the original 215 entries surviving the day. It’s Ben Lamb who will go into Day 3 as the chip leader. David Benyamine, Shaun Deeb, Bryce Yockey, Jeremy Ausmus, Tommy Le and Jerry Wong are among the notables still alive in the event.

A big payday is set for those who continue to advance in the event with all remaining players guaranteed at least $44,807, while eight players will earn six-figure payouts with the winner earning an impressive $1,251,860.

Day 3 will begin at 2 PM PT.
