Takahiro Nakai bested Melvin Wiener to win his first WSOP bracelet and Japan’s second.

Event #59: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em: Updates

Four players will return to the Rio on Friday to fight for the bracelet in Event #59, but 2006 WSOP Main Event Champion and poker lightning rod Jamie Gold will not be one of them. Gold was eliminated in 5th place on Day 3.

Event #60: $25,000 High Roller Pot-Limit Omaha: Final Report

Anthony Zinno is having an impressive 2015. The Massachusetts native already has two WPT victories on his resume, and he can now add a WSOP bracelet to what is fast becoming one of the better years in tournament poker history. Zinno now has a very real chance to sweep every major POY award.

Event #61: $1,111 The Little One for One Drop: Updates

The field is now down to 128 players in the Little One for One Drop. One of the players eliminated on Wednesday was Rosanna Woo. Woo won her seat in a PPA contest and cashed in the tournament.

Event #62: $1,500 Bounty No-Limit Hold’em: Updates

Another new event in 2015 is the $1,500 Bounty event, with $500 of each entry doled out as a bounty. It’s apparently a popular format, considering 2,178 players signed up for the tournament, with 281 making it through to Day 2.

Event #63: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E Championship: Updates

204 players registered for the $10k HORSE tournament, and when the dust settled at the end of the day 122 players remained, including 2015 bracelet winner Eli Elezra, who will take the chip-lead into Day 2.

Starting Today:
