There will be seven players returning to the felt for the final day of Event #10: €25,500 Mixed Games Championship. The cards will go in the air at 3 p.m. local time and it will be a fight to see who can come away with their first World Series of Poker gold bracelet...or their 16th.
It was a near-perfect Day 2 for Besim Hot who was one of the last players to register in the tournament but wasted no time in building up his stack. Hot will enter the final table with over one-third of the chips in play and a stack of 15,795,000. His next closest competitor is Dzmitry Urbanovich who eliminated Johannes Becker on the money bubble and brought an end to the night with 7,425,000 chips.
However, much of the focus today will be on Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu who have a combined 21 WSOP bracelets between the two of them. Hellmuth sits on a stack of 5,495,000 and Negreanu is not far behind with 5,315,000. Hellmuth will be channeling all of his positivity to add to his record 16 bracelets and Negreanu will be looking to give himself a comfortable lead in the Player of the Year race.
Julien Martini (4,475,000), Alex Livingston (4,005,000), and Benny Glaser (2,750,000) round out the remaining players at the final table. Martini and Glaser already have bracelets to their name and will be looking to add more while Livingston is still searching for his first after coming so close in the WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas earlier this year.

There will be 21:43 remaining in level 18 when the players return to their seats. The levels will continue to be 60 minutes in length with a 15-minute break after every two levels. Because of play halting just as the final table redraw was done, there will also be a draw for which game the players will start with at the start of the day.
The entire prizepool of over €1,068,000 will be up for grabs today with a min-cash being worth €38,389 and the winner taking home €385,911. A lot of money is up for grabs but for some of these players, it is all about the prestige of beating the best players in the world and walking away with the title.
