2023 WSOP Day 19: Glaser Chases Fifth Bracelet

Day 19 at the 2023 World Series of Poker was an unusual one with no bracelets being awarded at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas. This was largely because the Event #38: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Championship — due to crown a champion on Day 19 — had heads-up play bumped until Day 20 (June 18).

Two other tourneys made moves through their middle phases. Event Event #39: $1,500 Monster Stack played out its Day 1b, while Event #40: $250k Super High Roller did the same for its Day 2.

Day 19 of the 2023 WSOP also saw competition for the first-ever Big O bracelet begin, with an impressive 1,458 entries in the prize pool for the inaugural Event #41: $1,500 Big O.

Yet another final table at this was extended another day when the tournament director checked heads up play between Benny Glaser and Oscar Johansson, pushing it to tomorrow.

Among the big names that fell on Day 3 were David “Bakes” Baker, Michael Rodrigues, and Julien Martini.

Johansson has been here before with two WSOP lowball final tables including a 2nd place finish in 2018’s $1,500 2-7 Lowball Draw tourney. However, Glaser is in good shape to win his fifth bracelet tomorrow. The Brit has a significant lead over Johansson, having bagged 4,940,000 in chips to Johansson’s 2,860,000.

The pair face off over a $311,428 first place prize and the bracelet for Event #38: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Championship starting at 2 p.m. local time.
