WSOP Day 33 – 2 More Bracelets Won

poker table

Day 33 at the World Series of Poker will be remembered as one of the saddest in years after the death of Johannes Strassmann and the worsening condition of honorary WSOP bracelet winner Chad Brown who is struggling with cancer. We can imagine that the mood at the tables was not as colourful as usual as they worked at trying to get a bracelet of their own.

Check out what happened in the six events played out.
