Mark Radoja was the only bracelet winner at the WSOP today as the heads-up match between Mike Sexton and Chris Viox was delayed until tomorrow.

We've got the rundown on that plus action from the other four ongoing events on Day 17 of the 2011 World Series of Poker.

Event 24 - $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout – Winner

It was a long and drawn out final table but we can now tell you that Mark Radoja has won this $5k Shootout.

A tough field of 387 bought into this event which Radoja had to survive, concluding with a final table lineup that included Adam Junglen, Todd Terry, Tom Marchese and 2011 WSOP bracelet winner Sean Getzwiller.

Radoja pocketed $436,568 and his first WSOP bracelet.

Event 25 - $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low – Winner

By all accounts this event should have been over tonight but, thanks to the WSOP's new ten-level hard-stop rule, Chris Viox and Mike Sexton will be returning tomorrow to complete their heads-up match.

Sexton is hunting his second WSOP bracelet but will have to overcome a two to one chip disadvantage should he prove victorious.

Just over $200,000 is up for grabs for first, with the runner-up pocketing $123,925.

Event 26 - $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em/ Six Handed – Day 2

Day 2 is done in this shorthanded event and just 22 of the original 1,378 players remain.

Anthony Ruberto is in the lead right now, with the UK’s Chris Moorman right behind him in second.

Other players of note still left in this event include Anthony Lellouche, Dan O’Brien, Will Failla and Davidi Kitai.

This event is scheduled to conclude tomorrow but may have to be extended to a fourth day if a winner is not decided in ten levels of play.

Event 27 - $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship – Day 2

14 players made it through to Day 3 of this year’s Limit Hold’em Championship, led by Steven Landfish.

Landfish already has a runner-up finish at this year’s WSOP but he’s got a tough lineup to contend with in this event should he prove capable of outdoing that result.

Justin Smith, Nick Schulman, Barry Greenstein, 2011 bracelet winner Darren Woods, Matt Hawrilenko, Hoyt Corkins and Isaac Haxton all made it through as well.

Over $378,000 is on the line for first, plus the title of 2011 Limit Hold’em Champion.

Event 28 - $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em – Day 1

Precisely 2,500 players bought into today’s $1,500 NLHE event, with 349 of those advancing to Day 2 now that the chips are in the bags.

Rick Romine dominated this Day 1, ending the day with 143k. Romine was the only player to break the 100,000 mark.

Other players of note on the leaderboard include Ty Reiman, Matt Graham and Brent Hanks.

Event 29 - $2,500 10-Game Mix/ Six Handed – Day 1

Today’s 10-game event is the first of its kind at the WSOP and 431 players bought in for a chance at the ultimate mixed-game tournament experience.

168 players made it through Day 1 with Rob Hollink of the Netherlands in the lead. He’s followed closely by Brandon Adams, Sam Grizzle and Greg Raymer.

Over $254,000 is on the line for first, plus the first bracelet ever awarded in this format.
