Another mixed game contest of the 2021 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas is one step closer to crowning a champion. Out of a field of 319 entries in Event #54: $2,500 Nine-Game Mix 6-Handed, just 17 players remain in the hunt for the coveted gold bracelet. The tournament, dubbed as the mini version of the pinnacle Poker Players Championship, will award the lion's share of the $709,775 prize pool on the final day on Saturday, October 30, 2021.

Nicholas Julia holds a commanding lead over his final 16 opponents as he bagged up an impressive stack of 2,150,000, which is more than two times of what Robert McLaughlin (1,013,000) has at his disposal. Among the other big stacks are three-time WSOP Circuit ring winner Aditya Prasetyo, the WSOP bracelet winners Kenny Hsiung and Justin Liberto, as well as actor and mixed game aficionado James Woods.

Mike Matusow continues his string of deep runs during the festival so far as he sits inside the overnight top ten and chases a fifth WSOP bracelet. A potential repeat victory at the WSOP is also possible for John Racener, Bradley Ruben, and the 2005 WSOP Main Event champion Joe Hachem.

2005 WSOP Main Event Champion Joe Hachem is among the 17 finalists

Julia began his rise to the top of the leaderboard in the second level of the day when he knocked out Greg Mueller with the flopped nut flush against a rivered inferior flush. From there on, he was a wrecking ball at his alternating tables and remained in the top three on the leaderboard for the rest of the day. Many other notables such as Brian Rast, Yuri Dzivielevski, Max Pescatori, John Monnette, Jason Somerville, Day 1 chip leader Kao "Flexx" Saechao, and Daniel Negreanu were among the casualties before the money.

Eli Elezra was multi-tabling and had stacks in play for the mixed game contest and Day 2 of the Seniors Event. He paced back and forth between two different rooms in the and was ultimately eliminated by Joshua Rhodes not far away from the money bubble. Donny Rubinstein ended up as the bubble boy in a Razz hand against Kenny Hsiung and the eliminations thereafter came at a rapid pace once the players returned from the dinner break.

Notables in the money included WSOP bracelet winners such as Andrew Barber, Adam Owen, Andrew Kelsall, Kevin Gerhart, Jim Collopy, Carol Fuchs, Frankie O'Dell, and Naoya Kihara. Fuchs was denied a second final table of the festival when her ace-king came up second-best against ace-queen in a preflop contest. Kihara succumbed in a roller coaster Stud Hand against Rhodes.

Maria Ho made it to the final four tables before she bowed out in 23rd place and Matt Waxman followed soon after when his overpair ran into the flopped wheel of runaway chip leader Julia.

The remaining 17 players will return to their seats in the Amazon Tan section at 2pm local time and determine the latest WSOP gold bracelet winner. They have $7,626 locked up so far but the eyes will be set on the top prize of $168,608. Stay tuned right here on PokerNews to find out who joins the winner's circle.

Christian Roberts raised all-in preflop and was called by Aditya Prasetyo. The cards were turned face-up and it was pocket {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} held by Roberts versus the {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts} held by Prasetyo.

The dealer spread the flop of {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{7-Hearts} and Roberts flopped a flush draw.

2-7 Triple Draw

Prior to the second draw, Colleen Long check-raised all-in for the last 30,000. Robert McLaughlin had bet and Drew Scott called, which then re-opened the action as it was exactly 50% of a raise by Long. McLaughlin raised to 50,000 and Scott called.

Long took two while both her opponents patted. McLaughlin bet and Scott called. Long drew one, McLaughlin patted and Scott took one. Another bet by McLaughlin isolated as Scott folded.

McLaughlin tabled {8-}{7-}{6-}{3-}{2-} and Long needed an eight as she had made a {6-}{5-}{4-}{3-}. Instead, she paired the {5-} and bowed out in 19th place.
