Seventeen players came back for Day 3 of Event #24 $1,500 No Limit Hold'em after a starting field of 1,731 built a massive $2,336,850 prize pool. The average 'returning' stack was around 30 big blinds but the bust-outs began and the action sizzled as Corey Harrison claimed his first WSOP bracelet after busting Daniel Cascado heads-up.

Once the tournament went to heads-up, the chip wars ran for almost two hours where Harrison and Cascado both had big chip leads at different points. Cascado ended up short and then hit a double up, but busted on the very next hand when he moved all-in preflop holding the {K-Spades}{10-Clubs} and Harrison called with the {A-Spades}{7-Spades}. The flop hit perfect for Harrison — {j-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}. Harrison had to escape two outs to win the tournament and he was able to do just that. The {6-Diamonds} and {j-Hearts} completed the board and Harrison had the title and his first WSOP bracelet.
