Nonstop action at the 52nd World Series of Poker resulted in four more bracelet winners. The newly minted were Jermaine Reid, Jacob “incel4life” Neff, and Mourad Amokrane who gave France its third gold. Another champion was Scott Ball who captured his second win in this series for his second career gold bracelet. The ongoing festival is on its last ten days with games running at the Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino through November 23. To date, 69 out of 88 bracelet events have been won plus 7 out of 11 at online platform WSOP.com.

The $10,000 Main Event World NL Hold’em Championship enters Day 6 with 96 players remaining. Among the contenders are three Asian players, namely bracelet winner Abhinav Iyer (India), Norbert Koh (Singapore), and Mikiya Kudo (Japan). At Event #71: $1,500 Mixed No Limit Hold’em / Pot Limit Omaha, it is down to 8 players with Japan’s Motoyoshi Okamura and Philippine bracelet winner Mike Takayama in the running.

Before the series, Scott Ball only had two prior live scores at the Rio and no bracelet. Today, he has twelve cashes and two bracelets. Nearly one month ago, Ball won Event #25: $5,000 6-Handed No Limit Hold’em for his first gold, then just yesterday, he shipped Event #68: $1,111 Little One for One Drop No Limit Hold’em for his second career bracelet. Ball became the newest player to join the exclusive group of two time series winners consisting of Anthony Zinno, Kevin Gerhart, and Josh Arieh. With this win, he zoomed to the top of the No Limits Velo leaderboard and jumped into second rank in the WSOP Player of the Year race. Currently, Ball has accumulated a whopping US$ 1,057,556 in this series alone. Interviewed by PokerNews, Ball said,

“It’s like a simulation to be heads-up again for a bracelet in like two weeks. I’ve just worked so hard to get better at No-Limit this past year, so when it peeled off and I won another one, it just didn’t feel like reality. It feels like I’m dreaming, and I’m going to wake up tomorrow and be like, dang, I can’t wait to live that one day.”

The event drew 3,797 entries across three starting days for a prize pool of US$ 3,800,797. Out of the 568 that shaved a piece were 38 players from all over Asia. Running the deepest per flag were Korea’s Gyuhoon Kang in 14th place, India’s Shuchi Chamaria in 73rd place, Taiwanese bracelet winner Carlos Chang in 90th place, Japan’s Rikiya Jinbo in 113th place, China’s Marcelo Delgado in 118th place, Philippine’s John Tech in 250th place, Hong Kong’s Yik Yin “Ray” Chiu in 399th place, and Singapore’s Foo Yong Cheong in 526th place.

Event #69: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better – JERMAINE REID – US$ 113,459

One of the last Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better events was won by Jermaine Reid for his first ever WSOP gold bracelet and career high score of US$ 113,459. Prior to the dream win, Reid only had four series cashes amounting to US$ 14.6K. Interviewed by PokerNews, Reid said,

“I expected to go out in fifth place. In fact, I sent out a message to my girlfriend saying, sorry, bad news. Things just turned around. I just got very lucky. Very, very lucky.”

To reach the top, Reid overcame a field of 372 entries. He carried in the biggest stack into Day 2 and at the start of Day 3, he was wedged in the middle. At the final table were two decorated players, 4x bracelet winner John Monnette and 1x bracelet winner Carol Fuchs, both players sitting on their second final table. Also in was John Racener who was on his third final table.

Reid brought in a decent stack and bumped it up after eliminating Joseph Ranciato in 9th place. By three handed, Reid was lagging behind Peder Berge and John Hoang but after numerous winning hands he took the lead, though briefly, as Berge surged back ahead upon railing Hoang in 3rd place. It was a quiet heads up with the room practically empty and both players silently attacking the other’s chips. Reid clawed his way back up to reclaim the chip advantage, and from there, he widened the gap to eventually clinch it with a straight over two pair.

Out of the 56 players paid, 49 were from the USA. Among them were multi bracelet winners Nathan Gamble (18th) and Shaun Deeb (22nd). No Asian players attended this event.

Event #71: $1,500 BOUNTY Pot Limit Omaha – MOURAD AMOKRANE – US$ 132,844

Third win for France in this series with Mourad Amokrane locking up the gold bracelet at Event #71: $1,500 BOUNTY Pot Limit Omaha 8-Handed. Amokrane topped a field of 860 entries to claim the US$ 132,844 first prize and a sizable wad in bounty rewards. This was his first ever WSOP cash and first ever career live victory. Interviewed by PokerNews, Amokrane was stunned,

“I have no words. I look at all the poker shows on TV. I know all the famous players and getting a WSOP bracelet is something unbelievable for me. I don’t realize it. It’s just a beautiful feeling. My wife is calling from France right now. She was not sleeping all night to follow the updates.”

On Amokrane’s road to victory, he topped Day 1, finished Day 2 ranked second, then entered the final table back in the leader’s chair. While every player was seeking their first ever bracelet, three of them, namely Jeff Gross, Kao Chieng Saechao, and Gabe Ramos were all on their second final table.

Early action saw Moukrane suffer multiple hits to send his stack down to second from the bottom. After winning several small pots, he doubled up through Saechao then cleaned him out in 8th place. At five handed, there was no doubt that the round belonged to Amokrane who charged upwards to amass over half the chips in play. From there, he went on to boot Dustin Nelson (5th), Matthew Misna (4th), and Matthew Humphrey (3rd), to face Matt Maiya for the title with an overwhelming stack of 105 BB to 1.5 BB. It only took one hand to seal the win and capture his first ever WSOP title and gold bracelet.

Among the Asian players in the money were China’s Lei Cui (63rd) and Japanese pro Kosei Ichinose (123rd).
