Negreanu and Ivey Shine on Day 8 of WSOP 2024: Final 11 in $10K Dealer’s Choice

Day 8 of the 2024 World Series of Poker (WSOP) at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas was a thrilling spectacle, with four bracelets awarded and some of poker’s biggest names making significant strides. Among the standout performers were Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey, who have both reached the final 11 in the highly competitive $10,000 Dealer’s Choice Championship.

Four Bracelets Claimed in One Day

The first bracelet of the day was claimed by Australia’s Malcolm Trayner in Event #5: $1,000 Mystery Millions. Trayner outlasted an enormous field of 18,409 players, securing a $1 million top prize and their first WSOP bracelet after three grueling days of poker.

Event #10: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship also concluded on Day 8. Scott Seiver emerged victorious, turning his stack of 11,820,000 chips into $426,744 in cash and his fifth career bracelet, a feat that surely bolsters his case for the Poker Hall of Fame.

David Prociak captured the third bracelet in Event #11: $1,500 Badugi. Prociak, already a bracelet winner, bested a field of 487 players, including four other bracelet holders who made it to the final ten. Prociak defeated Matt Grapenthein heads-up to claim his second WSOP bracelet.

The day’s final bracelet came from Event #14: $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold’em. This one-day event saw Thibault Perissat triumph over a field of 2,594 players after 37 intense levels, earning him a bracelet and $197,308 in prize money.

Stars Align in the $10K Dealer’s Choice Championship

The poker community is buzzing with excitement as the $10,000 Dealer’s Choice Championship narrows down to its final 11 players. Robert Mizrachi, a four-time bracelet winner, leads with 1,511,000 chips. Despite Mizrachi’s impressive position, much of the attention is on two other contenders: Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu.

Ivey, a ten-time bracelet winner, sits in eighth place with 563,000 chips. Known for his clutch performances and unparalleled skill, Ivey remains a formidable force, aiming to close the gap on Phil Hellmuth’s record.

Negreanu, with six WSOP bracelets to his name, holds the second-shortest stack at 312,000 chips. However, one double-up could position him as a significant threat. Both Ivey and Negreanu are Hall of Famers whose deep runs have captivated fans and fantasy draft players alike.

Other Contenders and Chip Counts

In addition to Mizrachi, the other players with seven-figure stacks include Venkata Tayi (1,112,000), Day 1 chip leader George Alexander (1,090,000), and bracelet winner Ryutaro Suzuki (1,053,000). The remaining players are David Bach (909,000), Michael Martinelli (807,000), Ben Lamb (683,000), Richard Bai (336,000), and Max Kruse (268,000).
