Event 16: $600 PLO Hi/Lo Six-Handed (July 16)

This event was the first mixed game of the series so far and drew 498 total entries. At the end of the day, New York’s Allen “Acnyc718” Chang took his second bracelet and $61,394. Edwin “YungFlipWell” Roman came in second for $37,837. 

It was an incredible journey to the final table, taking some vicious beats for heaps and dishing one out to chop a massive pot three-handed,” says Roman, a poker player from Bayonne, New Jersey. “It felt good to be heads-up for the jewelry, but I’m confident I’ll find another chance.

Others cashing included: Andrew “watchguy42” Lichtenberger, Ryan “Joeyisamush” Depaulo, and Nathan “surfbum” Gamble

Event 17: $400 NLHE 8-Max (July 17) 

Poker streamer Justin “LappyPoker” Lapka got his first bracelet and $75,371 on Saturday. Lapka topped Uke “ooopsmybad” Dauti heads-up for the title.

Dauti won $46,575 for runner-up. A few others finding a cash included recent bracelet winners Donnell “spreezy52” Dais and Ryan “Adopt_aDogg0” Leng

Event 18: $1,000 North American Open (July 18)

On Sunday night, James “Danfriel” Gilbert took down $137,570 and his first bracelet in the North American Open. He outlasted a 756-person field and battled a tough final table to score the gold. 

Gilbert topped high stakes regulars like Landon “ActionDealer” Tice (runner-up for $85,047) and WPT commentator Tony “Panoramic” Dunst (fifth for $30,448).

New Jersey online grinder Daniel “st0neydanza” Dagostino took ninth for $9,550. He’s had multiple cashes so far in this bracelet series and spoke with USPoker about the final table appearance.

“After coming close many times, it was nice to make it to my first WSOP bracelet final table,” he said. “I won a circuit ring earlier this year, but I’m trying to lock down a bracelet this summer as well.”

Event 19: $888 PLO Crazy Eights Eight-Handed (July 19) 

Martin “bathroomline”  Zamani didn’t have to wait in any lines for the Rio restrooms this summer. He scored a bracelet from his computer on Monday night.

After two final tables this summer, Zamani locked up his first bracelet along with $92,598. He had to overcome players like Ryan “Joesyisamush” Depaulo (fourth for $27,094) and Joseph “biueberry” Cheong (eighth for $7,666) to secure the victory. 

Overall, the event brought in 507 to create a prize pool of $405,600.
