Tommy Nguyen Eyes Second WSOP Bracelet

Tommy Nguyen Eyes Second WSOP Bracelet 0001

The 2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP) is 10 days in the books now and Canada's best hope at a bracelet so far have been Daniel Negreanu and Adam Lamers. Tommy Nguyen looks to change that on the 11th day as he sits at the final table of the $1,500 Shootout Event.

Nguyen already has a WSOP bracelet, winning last year's $1,500 Monster Stack event for $1,037,451 after 6,260 entries were counted.

The final ten players are not only vying for a WSOP Bracelet but also the $238,824 in first place prize money after 917 players entered the event. Each player is guaranteed at least $15,331 for 10th place prize money, while the top three spots will earn six figures.

The final table of 10 has a couple of notable players still in the mix. Kenna James made it through his first two tables as did PokerGO founder Cary Katz. Both players have played some of the highest staked games in the world but the elusive WSOP bracelet has evaded both players.

Here is how the final table payouts look:
