Posted On 26 Jun, 2019 0

This is easily India's favourite tournament at the World Series of Poker (WSOP), with both of bracelets coming in the Tag Teams Event. The same tournament of WSOP 2019 began yesterday and now, one of our 3 teams to progress to Day 2 has managed to bag their chips and progress to Day 3 as well, keeping the bracelet dream alive.

It's the team of Akshay Nasa and Sajal Gupta that will continue the hunt for another gold bracelet on Day 3 of Event #57: $1,000 Tag Team No-Limit Hold'em tomorrow. After having another good day at the felts in Rio All Suites Hotel, the duo bagged 570,000 chips and ended among the top 15 stacks by the end of day's play.

Another team that was doing fairly well was that of Kevin MacPhee - Dhaval Mudgal - Abhinav Iyer - Siddarth Karia, but these guys were extremely unfortunate to bust on the final hand of the night in Las Vegas. Regardless, they finished in the money and bagged a prize of $3,970 for finishing in 36th place.

Six teams bagged 1+ million in chips by the end of Day 2 while the team of Ohad Gieger - Daniel Dayan - Barak Wisbrod ended with the chip lead, currently holding a stack of 1.34 million. Tomorrow, the final 35 teams will resume on Day 3 and while pay-outs resume from $3,970, everyone will have their eyes fixed on the top prize of $168,395 which obviously comes along with the prestigious gold bracelet.
