Monday July 8,2013 : The last three general event bracelets at the 2013 World Series of Poker have been claimed by Daniel Alaei, Loni Harwood and Brian Yoon prior to the Main Event, which will only be finally decided later this year.

Loni Harwood emerged victorious from event 54, a $1,500 buy-in NLHE contest, enabling her to claim the distinction of being only the second woman to win a bracelet in an open event this series Dana Castaneda preceded her this year..
 
After personally eliminating several of her final table opponents, Harwood entered the heads up against Yongshuo Zheng with an almost 4 to 1 chip lead, but her rival gave her a run for the money, stretching the heads up action to just on 90 minutes as the lead swung from one to the other before Harwood was able to despatch Zheng and claim the bracelet.
 
The final table pay-outs looked like this:
 
Loni Harwood $609,017
Yongshuo Zheng $378,607
Mika Paasonen $267,978
Yngve Steen $193,265
Asi Moshe $141,124
Daniel Cascado $104,282
Cy Williams $78,006
