As Day 30 of the 2011 WSOP comes to a close just one more bracelet found its way onto a lucky player's wrist.

We've got the details on that plus ongoing action from four other events at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.

Event 46 - $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em/ Six Handed – Winner

Action in the $10 Six Max Championship was suspended during heads-up play between Joe Ebanks and Chris Moorman, with Ebanks enjoying a sizeable lead which he will return to tomorrow afternoon.

Ebanks has just over 11 million to Moorman’s 3.2 million with $1,158,481 on the table for first.

Both players are looking for their first WSOP bracelet.

Bertrand “ElkY Grospellier, who already won a WSOP bracelet this summer, finished third for just over $447,000.

Event 47 - $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low – Heads-Up

Michael Mizrachi came painfully close to his second WSOP bracelet tonight, finishing second to Owais Ahmed in this $2,500 Mixed Hi-Low event.

For his victory Ahmed takes $255,959 and his first gold bracelet.

A number of name pros made it deep in this event including Abe Mosseri who finished third, Scotty Nguyen in fifth and Frenchman Antony Lellouche in ninth.

Event 48 - $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em – Day 2

Just 30 of the original 2,713 remain in this low buy-in No-Limit event and PokerListings Pro Blogger Matt Stout is second in chips!

Sebastian Winkler is the only player with more chips.

Over $650,000 is waiting for the eventual winner.

This event was originally scheduled for three days but, due to the size of the remaining field, a fourth day will likely be added.

Event 49 - $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw (Limit) – Day 2

Day 2 of this lowball event finished with 17 players remaining and two-time WSOP bracelet winner Jason Mercier leading.

Mercier already made one final table in a 2-7 event this year and will be looking for a third bracelet as this event plays down to a winner tomorrow.

He’s got plenty of tough competition to contend with, however, in the form of Eli Elezra, Scott Seiver, Shawn Buchanan, Jon Turner, David Bach, Galen Hall and Justin Bonomo.

$189,919 will go to the winner.

Event 50 - $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em – Day 1

817 players paid the $5,000 entry fee to compete in this triple chance event, building a total prize pool of $3,839,000.

297 made it through the day and Mark Herm finished atop the leader board.

Plenty of other talent is there with him in James Akenhead, Tristan Clemencon, Josh Arieh, Men Nguyen, Andy Black and Daniel Alaei.

$825,604 will go to first place with 81 players in total getting paid.
