It took roughly three levels for the field in Event #33: $50,000 Poker Players Champion to be cut from 12 to the official final table of six players. Currently leading the pack is Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi who bagged up a total of 8,865,000 chips at the end of play on Monday, 18 June.

Mizrachi tore through the field and didn't seem like he could lose a hand. He even eliminated the only other multiple Poker Players Championship Winner Brian Rast on his way to the top of the counts.

Dan Smith, the sole player without a bracelet at the final table, bagged up the second largest stack of the day with 4,485,000 in chips.

When play resumes on Day 5, the button will be on Aaron Katz, and there will be four more hands of No-Limit Hold'em.

Matthew Davis Outlasts Record-Setting Field in Seniors Event

Matthew Davis, from Dublin, California, has collected his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet and $662,676 for winning the record-breaking Event #32 of the 2018 WSOP, Seniors $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em.

Davis, a 50-year-old college teacher, earned the giant payday in just the third cash of his WSOP career. Davis's two prior WSOP cashes occurred in 2007 and 2009 and combined for about $7,500, a figure vastly dwarfed by his payday here.
Final Table Payouts:

1st: Matthew Davis, $662,676
2nd: Bill Stabler, $409,387
3rd: Scott Hamilton-Hill, $303,807
4th: Gary Friedlander, $227,072
5th: Bill Bennett, $170,944
6th: Rachel De la Torre, $129,626
7th: Frank Berry, $99,015
8th: Joseph Schulman, $76,191
9th: Thad Smith, $59,064
