While slated to be a one-day affair, Event #62: $1,500 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold'em Freezeout was such a roaring success with 2,569 entrants (up from 1,441 last year), that an extra day is needed to crown a winner. Only 20 hopefuls are left standing, and they'll return at 3 p.m. to the WSOP's new home at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas to play down to a winner today.
It's a classic blink-and-you'll-miss-it day; with 20-minute levels throughout, action will be shifted in the highest gear right off the bat and a winner can be expected to be crowned in the span of a few hours.
Going into the day, big stacks John Bredengerd (8,500,000), David Sanchez (6,850,000) and Shaun Colquhoun (5,500,000) find themselves in the best position to claim the coveted bracelet and $301,396 (plus a slew of bounties) that awaits the winner.
Bounty hunter Chris Fraser already collected 22 (!) bounties worth $500 each along the way, but bagged 1,350,000 in chips to put him toward the bottom of the pack as cards go back in the air.
