The bracelet champion is set to be decided today in Event #32: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em Championship. The original plan for this event was to play down to six players on Day 3, but after 10 levels of grinding on Saturday 19 players still remained. Those players come back to the Amazon Room today for a 12 noon start and will play down to a winner.

Some of the big stacks in contention for the$662,594 first-place prize money include Day 2 and Day 3 chip leader Howard Mash (13,990,000), who is seeking the first six-figure payday of his career.

EPT champion Jean-Rene Fontaine (12,250,000) looks to add his first WSOP bracelet to his poker resume, while other contenders still in the hunt include Farhad Jamasi (10,4525,000), Alan Ho (10,065,000) and Dennis Brand (9,045,000).

Play will begin at Level 31 today, with the blinds at 80,000-160,000. More than half of the remaining 19 players begin Day 4 with 40 big blinds or more, so it really is anybody’s bracelet to win as the $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship comes to its conclusion. The field will play one-hour levels, with 15-minute breaks after every two levels and a dinner break time to be determined.

There are no former WSOP bracelet winners left in the field, so whoever comes away with the championship will be a guaranteed first-time bracelet winner.

Stay with the PokerNews live reporting team throughout the day as a champion will be crowned at the Rio felt.

The Dream Continues for Mullin

Nível 31 : 80,000/160,000, 160,000 ante

On the third hand of the day, Peter Mullin, short for two whole days, was all in for just half a big blind (80,000) with button Robert Pacleb and big blind Alan Ho against him.

The active players checked down the {6-Spades}{10-Spades}{q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} board, Ho revealing the {q-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}.

"I'm not going anywhere. Full house!" said Mullin, flipping over {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. "The dream continues."

Richardson Hits on the River

Nível 31 : 80,000/160,000, 160,000 ante

Mansour Alipourfard from the cutoff on the turn with {3-Hearts}{6-Spades}{10-Spades}{2-Spades} showing, and Adam Richardson put in an 800,000 bet from the button, which Alipourfard called.

The river came {q-Diamonds}, both players checked, and Richardson showed his rivered pair of queens with {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs} to take down a pot early in Level 31.

Survival Expert Mullin Stays on Three Big Blinds

Nível 31 : 80,000/160,000, 160,000 ante
Peter Mullin

Peter Mullin was all in again for one big blind, making up the small blind when it folded round. Big blind Robert Pacleb had no option but to take him on with {10-Diamonds}{2-Spades}. Mullin's {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} hit two pair on the {q-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{j-Spades}{9-Spades} board and the incredibly-short-stacked journey of Mullin somehow continues.

"Come on, one of you get aces, and one of you kings up there," urged Mullin, looking at the secondary feature table.

Richardson's Raise Shuts Down Fontaine

Nível 31 : 80,000/160,000, 160,000 ante

Jean-René Fontaine, on the small blind, checked to under-the-gun Adam Richardson on a flop of {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}{3-Clubs}, and Richardson checked back.

The turn brought the {a-Hearts}, and Fontaine put out 700,000, which Richardson called. The river came {6-Clubs} and the fireworks started, as Fontaine put out another 700,000 bet and Richardson went all-in for the rest of his eight million chips. Fontaine quickly folded.

Dane Nielsen and Jean-René Fontaine arrived at a flop of {6-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} in a battle of the blinds. Nielsen, on the small blind, went all in for his remaining 3,000,000 chips, and Fontaine called.

Dane Nielsen: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}
Jean-René Fontaine: {4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}

Nielsen was well ahead, and was still safe on the turn {5-Spades}. The river was brutal for Nielsen, however, as the {3-Clubs} fell to complete the gutshot straight for Fontaine
