The last flight of Event #21: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em MILLIONAIRE MAKER: Saturday's flight attracted 3,046 entries in total with 458 players finding a bag for Day 2 tomorrow, June 11. Kyle Hartree bagged the chip lead with a stack of 208,500.

#17 $1,500 NLHE 6-Max Winner - Bulgaria’s Ognyan Dimov has claimed gold in Event #17 of the 2018 World Series of Poker, $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Max. Dimov outlasted a 1,662-entry field and battled through an extra fourth day of play to earn $378,743 and his first WSOP gold bracelet.

$565 Pot-Limit Omaha Winner - Local Vegas pro Craig Varnell has claimed the coveted gold bracelet in Event #19 of the World Series of Poker, $565 Pot-Limit Omaha.

Varnell, 35, who previously won a WSOP Circuit ring at a 2014 stop in Colorado, finished off a fast-paced final table that included 2010 Main Event winner Jonathan Duhamel. Varnell sealed the win by eliminating his final foe, Seth Zimmerman, after a back-and-forth heads-up duel.

Adam Friedman Wins $10K Dealers Choice Championship - On Sunday afternoon, Adam Friedman showed that winning a bracelet in 2012 was no fluke. The poker pro originally from Ohio took down the $10,000 Dealers Choice Championship after defeating Stuart Rutter and Alexey Makarov on an unscheduled fourth day of play.
