Just eight players remain from a starting field of 1,191 players in Event #75: $1,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em. Today one of them will walk away with the grand prize of $270,877 and a coveted World Series of Poker gold bracelet.
Each of the remaining players will be seeking their first WSOP bracelet and a win will also be the biggest score of the eventual winners’ career.
Renmei Liu (7,100,000) from Canada leads the pack with 71 big blinds. Hot on his heels are Nicholas Hubers (5,600,000) from the United States and Kaue De Souza (4,540,000) from Brazil.
