Heading into Day 2d of Event #76: $10,000 WSOP Main Event World Championship at the 2023 World Series of Poker at the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas, the record for the largest WSOP Main Event field in its 54-year history had already been broken. However, the final number was not yet set, with late registration open until the start of Level 8 today.

Once late registration closed, the final tally stood at an astounding 10,043 entries, generating a total prize pool of $93,399,900 and blowing the previous record of 8,773 entrants, set in 2006, out of the water.

In the 2006 edition of this event, Jamie Gold famously talked his way to victory and a $12,000,000 payday. The eventual winner this year will receive exactly $100,000 more, a symbolic gesture ensuring that the champion of the largest Main Event ever will also be its biggest winner.

Coming into Day 2d, Nicholas "Dirty Diaper" Rigby had the chiplead. Today, he enjoyed another successful outing on the felt, slipping just one spot and bagging 921,500 for the second biggest stack going into Day 3. Of particular note, Rigby coolered Phil Hellmuth early on at the feature table, sending the 17-time bracelet winner to the rail.

While Rigby did add considerably to his already big stack, he did not end up with the most chips. That honor goes to all-time WSOP Circuit Ring leader Maurice Hawkins, who managed to amass a mammoth 941,000 in pursuit of his first WSOP gold bracelet. Other big stacks include Jeffrey Shapiro (832,000), Liran Betito (604,000), and a player so good that when heads-up his opponents simply walk away from the table, Jacob Mitich (660,000).

Main Event Day 2d Action

Many notables took their seat at the start of the day and were able to wend their way successfully through five 120-minute levels of play. Among them is mixed-game specialist and talented tennis player James Obst (593,000). After making a final table appearance at the 2023 Poker Player's Championship just a couple of weeks ago, he will be looking to add to his impressive summer showing. Chance Kornuth is currently on something of a heater, having won over $3.4 million in the last few months. That heater is showing no signs of cooling as he was able to bag an above average 449,500.

One of the more unexpected late entrants was none other than cash game legend Tom Dwan. Even though he only took his seat towards the end of registration, Dwan managed to equip himself with 426,500 as he looks to beef up a somewhat underwhelming tournament resumé for a player of his stature.

Day 3 resumes on July 9th at 12 p.m. local time at which point the entire field will be playing together for the first time. Five more 120-minute levels will be played. Although with 1,507 players getting paid it is unlikely that the money bubble will burst during those five levels, there will still be plenty of action going down.

Be sure to stay tuned to PokerNews as its live reporting team continues to provide comprehensive coverage of Event #76: $10,000 WSOP Main Event World Championship.

Last Five Hands Announced

Livello 10 : Blinds 1,000/2,000, 2,000 ante

The tournament staff has asked for all spectators to leave the immediate tournament area as the bagging and tagging process was to take place soon. Shortly after, the final hands of the night were drawn and another five hands are to be played for the night.

Tardif Takes Small Hit Late

Livello 10 : Blinds 1,000/2,000, 2,000 ante

Patrick Tardif opened to 7,000 in the small blind and was called by his opponent in the big blind.

Tardif continued for 5,500 following the 865 flop with the big blind just calling once more.

Action checked through the 3 turn to the 9 river at which point both players checked again. Tardif turned over 43 but it came up short against the 108 of the big blind, dealing Tardif a very minor blow in the closing stages of the day.

Vertucci Plays It Slow Near the End

Livello 10 : Blinds 1,000/2,000, 2,000 ante

Nick Vertucci was in early position and called a pre-flop three-bet of 14,000 from an opponent in middle position.

The flop came 4710 and Vertucci checked over to his opponent, who fired out another 11,000. Vertucci again called and checked the 9 turn.

His opponent slowed down and checked to the 6 river and Vertucci checked one more. The middle-position player took a sip from his drink before checking behind.

"I didn't really want to be doing this right now," Vertucci said as he opened up QQ to win the pot after his opponent mucked.

Himmelbrand Bluffs Kassouf

Livello 10 : Blinds 1,000/2,000, 2,000 ante

Greg Himmelbrand opened to 4,500 in early position and Will Kassouf put in a three-bet to 11,000 from middle position. The rest of the table got out of the way and Himmelbrand called.

The flop came AKJ and both players checked to the 3 turn. Himmelbrand elected to lead out for 13,000 and Kassouf went into the tank.

"You got lucky and three-outered me, right? You must have, like, ace-jack and hit both cards you need," said Kassouf as he laid down 1010.

Himmelbrand rolled over the 10 to keep Kassouf guessing, but just as the dealer almost had the second card in the muck, Himmelbrand grabbed it and turned up the 8 to show he bluffed Kassouf with ten-high.
