2016 WSOP - Day 15 Report

Day 15 of the 2016 WSOP was dominated by the wrapping up of the $10k Razz Championship event, which saw Jason Mercier narrowly lose out to Ray Dehkharghani, thus failing to take down his second bracelet of this year and failing to cash in on a number of massive side-bets. Brian Hastings made it all the way to 4th place in the tournament and John Racener caught the final table too.
Day 15 was about much more than just the Razz Championship though. Event #19 went into the books on that day as well. Its winner, Sam Soverel, took down a $185.3k prize. The $1k PLO affair drew a starting field of 1,106 players. Soverel was indeed a rather unlikely winner: he didn't even want to play in the $1k event, but his plans got turned upside down by a string of losses in cash games, so he late-registered for event #19, coming in with just 10 BBs. Eventually though, with Lady Luck firmly by his side, he persevered and grabbed up the bling.

In event #21, Daniel Negreanu took center stage, making his 7th WSOP bracelet bid. The $3k Six-Max NL Holdem tournament played down to its final 26 on its second day. Negreanu finished 5th in the chip counts, with a stack of 932k chips. All 4 players who finished ahead of him climbed past the 1 million chip mark. Martin Kozlov finished at the top, with 1.49 million chips. The other players who made the top of the pops were David Vamplew, Calvin Lee and Raghav Bansal.
Another event which saw action on Day 15 was the $1.5k Limit Holdem one (#22) which managed to play down to its last 15 players.
