Michael Addamo hopes to keep his hot streak alive with a strong finish in the $100,000 High Roller while Ben Yu hopes to snag his 4th bracelet in the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em.

In today’s World Series of Poker report, we take a look at these remaining events of the 2021 WSOP.

Michael Addamo leads $100,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em

Michael Addamo is in the driver’s seat in yet another high roller. This time, he holds an overwhelming chip lead in the $100,000 High Roller No Limit Hold’em where just five players remain. A total of 64 players entered the event with that number whittled down to a final table on Monday evening.

The remaining survivors are guaranteed at least $434,523 with first place set to receive $1,958,569. Sorel Mizzi, Sam Grafton, Mikita Badziakouski, William Klein and Fedor Holz were the last to bust before action was halted for the day but still took down respectable prizes.

Final Table Of $100k High Roller No Limit Hold'em

Chip position Player Chip Count
1st Michael Addamo 19,620,000
2nd Henrik Hecklen 5,445,000
3rd Sam Soverel 5,165,000
4th Kevin Rabichow 4,250,000
5th Sean Perry 3,920,000

Although Addamo hasn’t played a ton of events during the Las Vegas leg of the WSOP, he has made it count when he participates. In mid-October, Addamo won the $50k No Limit High Roller (Event #8) for his third WSOP bracelet. He has also been on an absolute tear in the weeks preceding the start of the WSOP.

Addamo won the final two events of the Poker Masters in mid-September, which secured the Purple Jacket and Poker Masters title. He then followed that up with a 2nd place finish during a $50k Super High Roller Bowl event and then a title at the Super High Roller Bowl Main Event, which came with a $3.4 million prize. In addition to the WSOP bracelet, he also won a $15k event and came in third during the Aria High Roller Series in October to add to his lifetime tournament winnings mark, which sits at $15,765,525 as of Tuesday morning.

The third and final day of the $100,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em gets underway at 4 PM PT.

The final event of the WSOP 2021, the $5,000 8-Handed No Limit Hold’em got underway on Monday with 531 entries joining the tournament.
