2014 WSOP Day 11 – Krost Wins Bracelet

Rio Las Vegas

We are fast approaching the two week barrier at this year’s World Series of Poker, yet with a month still to go, there is plenty to keep us all entertained. Day 11 brought us more of that action with another bracelet being awarded and Phil Hellmuth again making a deep run in an event that could see him earn his 14th bracelet.

Enjoy the action below as we have summarised each of the events that are in play.
