During the first break, the Brasilia Room hosted the last bracelet ceremony of the summer. Of the winners who received her prize was Loni Harwood, who finished first in Event #60: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em. Harwood is the second woman to win an open event at the 2013 WSOP (after Dana Castaneda in Event #54). She made two final tables earlier in the summer, and now has six total cashes. Her victory yesterday catapulted her to third place on the Player of the Year leader board, ahead of David “Bakes” Baker, Marco Johnson, and Tom Schneider, all of whom have produced stellar results in their own right over the past six weeks. Harwood currently sits with 23,500 in chips, and with a deep run in the Main Event, she has the potential to move even higher in the POY rankings.
