WSOP Event #7: Dealers Choice 6-Handed

Event #7 of the 2021 WSOP is the $1,500 Dealer’s Choice 6-Handed tournament. This mixed-game event allows each player at the table to take turns selecting which game will be played for the next orbit. Players can choose from a pre-approved list of 20 different poker variants.

The $1,500 Dealers Choice WSOP 2021 Event #7 attracted 307 entries, creating a prize pool of $409,845. Among those entries were plenty of big names, with many going deep, including Phil Hellmuth (out in 18th for $4,429), Eli Elezra (20th for $3,593) and Norman Chad (21st for $3,593). But Vancouver native Jaswinder Lally came away with the bulk of the prize pool and his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet, plus the top prize of $97,915.

Lally has two live tournament cashes on his Hendon Mob page. He pulled down a 49th place finish for $1,860 in the 2018 WSOP Mixed Triple Draw Lowball event. He also scored a 1,293rd place finish for $1,744 in the 2019 WSOP $500 No Limit Hold’em BIG 50 event. He says he only plays poker part time. He also claimed after the tournament that this was his first time playing some of the games selected in the 20-game dealer’s choice format.

The tournament was scheduled to run for three days, beginning on October 3rd. The $1,500 Dealer’s Choice event in 2019 drew 470 players for a total prize pool of $634,500. Scott Clements came out on top of the field to win his third career bracelet and a first-place prize of $144,500.
