Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and the 2018 World Series of Poker (2018) for Day 4 of the Event #18: $10,000 Dealer's Choice!

Day 3 saw just 13 players return from the 111 total entrants to battle down until the winner was crowned. Out of the gate, Aditya Prasetyo fell in 13th on one of the first hands of the day, but then a stalled rate of play would occur before Joey Couden (12th), Dylan Linde (11th), Jesse Martin (10th), Ryan Miller (9th), Anthony Zinno (8th), and Nikolai Yakovenko (7th) all fell before the final table was set.

With the final six ready to battle down to the winner, Marco Johnson was a quick exit in 6th before five-handed play continue for hours. As the end-of-the-night began to close in, and the limits began to rise, David "ODB" Baker exited in 5th, and then Chris Klodnicki fell in 4th before play ended for the night with three players remaining.

Note: The limits when play resumes on Day 4 will be 120,000/240,000.

Adam Friedman is chip leader heading into the final day with 3,075,000; good for 12.5 big bets and over 50-big blinds in the No- and Pot-Limit games. Friedman's run in this tournament has been fairly epic as he ended both Day 1 and 2 second in chips before finally becoming the top dog on the penultimate day. Russia's Alexey Makarov sits with 1,325,000 and at various times on the final table held the chip lead before giving it up late to Friedman. The United Kingdom's Stuart Rutter battled the short stack throughout the day before bagging 1,145,000 in chips.

Friedman is searching for validation as a mixed games specialist as a win here will be his second WSOP bracelet to go along with his 2012 $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo bracelet. Makarov and Rutter are both without a WSOP bracelet, but both have had some close calls in the past and will hope that this run here in Event #18 will be the time they break through.

Three-handed play is set to resume at 2:00 p.m with the PokerNews Live Reporting Team on hand to continue providing all the live updates from the Event #18 final table. So stay tuned right here to PokerNews.com to see who will be come the next Dealer's Choice Champion, along with all the future 2018 WSOP winners!

Makarov Shoves Turn on Friedman

Nível 31 : 120,000/240,000, 0 ante

No-Limit Hold'em

From the small blind, Adam Friedman raised to 150,000 and Alexey Makarov went deep into the tank from the big blind before making the call.

The flop landed {9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Friedman led out for 90,000 before Makarov raised it up to 300,000.

Friedman elected to call, and then he checked the {4-Clubs} on the turn before Makarov announced he was all in for 805,000.

Immediately Friedman stood up to gauge a look at exactly what was in Makarov's stack as the Russian sat there covering his mouth with his hand, and hiding under his cap.

Friedman deliberated for nearly four minutes before he decided to flick his cards to the muck to concede the pot to Makarov.

Rutter Doubles Through Makarov

No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw

From the button, Alexey Makarov raised to 150,000 from the button before Stuart Rutter moved all in for 815,000 from the small blind.

Adam Friedman considered his options in the big blind before folding, as Makarov called.

Rutter stood pat, and Makarov drew one.

Stuart Rutter: {10-}{7-}{5-}{3-}{2-}
Alexey Makarov: {7-}{6-}{5-}{2-}

With Rutter wrapping pat with his ten-seven, Makarov would need a nine, eight, four, or three to eliminate Rutter, but when he found the {K-}, Rutter would double through.
