Two days ago another of the hugely popular $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em events kicked off with 1,594 players sitting down to chase the dream of World Series of Poker glory and a huge payday in Event #26. The final 12 return today to decide a winner.

Ryan Welch is out in front with 1,524,000 chips. Welch is chasing his second bracelet having won the Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em back in 2010. Nearest in the counts to Welch is Dan Smith, who bagged up 887,000 last night. Smith has 14 cashes at the WSOP to his name but has yet to capture the ultimate prize. Smith was the chip leader for most of Day 2 but lost a couple of big hands to see him pegged back to second place currently.

Will Failla, who starts with 421,000, has a long history with the WSOP including 27 cashes, so he, too, will be out to wrap a bracelet around his wrist to prove the ultimate point.

Stay tuned to PokerNews as play resumes at 1 p.m. when we will bring you all the eliminations and comprehensive hand-for-hand coverage when the official final table of nine is reached. One player will be walking away with $408,953 and a WSOP gold bracelet.

Rennhack Doubles First Hand

Nível 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante

Christopher Symesko raised to 33,000 and Andrew Rennhack on the button studied his man before moving all in. Symesko instantly called.

Symesko: {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
Rennhack: {q-Clubs}{q-Spades}

“My suits are live,” Renhack said hopefully.

The board then ran out {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{4-Spades}{q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and Rennhack spiked his queen to survive. “Man, I hate kings,” Symesko said as the costly pot left him short.

Christopher Symesko Eliminated in 12th Place ($22,788)

Nível 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante

Christopher Symesko opened all in from the button and Heinz Kamutzki made the call from the big blind. Symesko tabled {k-Spades}{j-Clubs} and Kamutzki turned over {k-Diamonds}{9-Spades}.

Symesko was in good shape to double, but the {5-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop put him behind. The board completed {10-Clubs} and then {8-Clubs}, and just a few hands after his pocket kings were cracked, Symesko took another bad beat with this one sending him to the rail.

Gargano Doubles Through Failla

Nível 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante

Will "The Thrill" Failla raised to 35,000 from under the gun and Tony Gargano pushed all in from the big blind.

Failla: {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Gargano: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}

The flop came {10-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} and Gargano was still ahead. The {j-Spades} came on the turn, pairing Failla, but giving Gargano the straight. The {j-Diamonds} fell on the river and Gargano survived.

Failla: {a-Hearts}{7-Spades}

The board ran out {q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{k-Spades} and Failla left the tournament area, but not before placing Rappaport's bounty prize — a set of Monster headphones — on the table.

Ten-Handed Play

Nível 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante

No fireworks yet as players at the unofficial final table of 10 take little jabs at each other, claiming small pots here and there.

One hand just now saw Reed Goodmiller show down {9-}{9-} on a checked river with a lot of paint on board and Eric Rappaport just nod and pass his cards to the dealer, conceding the pot to Goodmiller.
