Just 24 remain going into the final day of Event #15: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, with all players setting their sights on the esteemed prize at hand, a WSOP bracelet and an impressive $202,787 first prize.

The only remaining player in the field who is a three-time bracelet winner is Brian Hastings who will be starting the final day ninth in chips and in good shape with a stack of 265,000. The first bracelet he secured was in 2012 during the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Heads-Up event, but his last two bracelets both came in non-hold'em games — the 2015 $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship and the the 2015 $1,500 Ten-Game Mix Six-Handed.

The chip leader at present is Damjan Radanov (518,000), followed by Michael Berger (439,000), Timothy Frazin (416,000), Sandeep Vasudevan (368,000), and James Opie (296,000).

When the action gets underway at 12:00 p.m. PDT, the blinds will resume at Level 21 and the remaining players will be playing down until a champion is crowned. The levels with be 60 minutes in length, with a 15-minute break after every two levels and a 60-minute dinner break after the sixth level.

Sandeep Vasudevan: {x-}{x-} / {a-}{a-}{6-}{6-} / (folds on sixth)

Bradley Smith completed with an ace showing and Sandeep Vasudevan three-bet with another ace showing. The action folded back to Smith who made the call and took over the betting lead on fourth.

Daniel Evans: {x-}{x-} / {q-Spades}{6-Hearts}{7-Spades}{10-Spades} / {x-}

Daniel Evans got the last of his chips in the middle on fourth street and was called by Bradley Smith. Evans revealed {a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and Smith had him outkicked with {k-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. Evans was unable to improve from there, with the {2-Spades} on seventh of no help, either.

In the next hand, Benjamin Covello found himself all in as well against Daniel Plonsker. Covello was unable to defeat the pair of aces of Plonsker and followed Evans to the payout desk.

Three players saw fourth street and the action was checked to Vincent Kolly who tossed in a bet. Sandeep Vasudevan check-raised and Kolly was the only player to call. Vasudevan led out on fifth and that was enough to put Kolly all in.

Vasudevan tabled {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts} for a flush which meant Kolly was drawing to only half of the pot with {a-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}. Sixth street didn't improve his hand and neither did the {9-Diamonds} on seventh, eliminating him from the tournament.

Bradley Smith raised it up from the hijack and James Opie three-bet from the big blind. Smith called to see a flop of {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}. Opie led out and Smith raised, which Opie just called.

The turn brought the {k-Spades} and Opie fired again. Smith raised again and Opie called.

The {9-Diamonds} on the river double-paired the board and Opie took the lead for the third time. Again, Smith raised but was countered by a three-bet from Opie. Smith thought for a moment and then just made the call. Opie tabled {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs} for missed straight and flush draws while Smith held {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for a full house.
