WSOP Day 16 – Quiet Day For Bracelets

Poker Chips Close-Up

Day 16 has certainly been one of the more quiet days at the World Series of Poker as we saw just three events play out with none of them awarding bracelets. There was still plenty to see and plenty to talk about however as those three events did bring us closer to their respective champions.

Tomorrow will see the start of a few more events and we will have bracelets, so keep in touch for our report then. Until then, check out the action from Day 16.
