Screw the donkeys!

An action-packed day at the World Series of Poker Tuesday June 16 saw three more bracelet winners crowned including poker icon J.C. Tran, who collected his second piece of WSOP jewelry in the $2.5k PLO event.

Leo Wolpert will be joining Tran on the winner's podium come tomorrow as he overcame Greg Mueller all in the running. Perhaps most interesting is the addition of Maria Ho, who is stacked with nearly 500,000 chips.

Action kicks off at 1 p.m. tomorrow.

Event 34 - $1.5k No Limit Hold'em

2095 players were whittled down to 243 by the close of play on day one of this event and big-field specialist Phil Hellmuth remained in contention come the end of play.

With $521,932 the juicy first prize awaiting the eventual winner, it should be a battle royale for the bracelet over the next few days.
