Nick Schulman

Nick Schulman was on the button and opened to 200,000. He received calls from Joe Hachem in the small blind and Denis Strebkov in the big blind.

The flop came {j-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{10-Spades} and all three players checked. The turn was {q-Spades} and action checked to Schulman, who bet 300,000. Hachem folded and Strebkov called.

The river was {6-Spades} and Strebkov checked. Schulman bet 795,000 and Strebkov folded, resulting in Schulman taking down the pot without showdown.

Strebkov Three-Quarters Schulman

• Nível 27: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante
Denis Strebkov
Denis Strebkov

Denis Strebkov raised to 180,000 from the button, and Nick Schulman three-bet to 580,000 in the big blind. Strebkob committed his last 885,000, and Schulman called.

Denis Strebkov: {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}
Nick Schulman: {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{3-Clubs}

The {2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop hit both players, as Schulman flopped a wheel and Strebkov flopped a queen-high flush. The {3-Spades} turn gave both players the same wheel, however, and Strebkov took three-quarters of the pot after the {5-Hearts} hit the river.

On the third hand of play for the day, Nick Schulman raised to 200,000 from the hijack to open the action and Chris Vitch three-bet to a pot-sized raise of 680,000. Nick Schulman four-bet to 1.86 million, effectively putting Vitch all in for his total of 1.16 million, which he called.

Chris Vitch: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{4-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Nick Schulman: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}

The board ran out {10-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{9-Spades} with Vitch missing his Broadway outs as well as his backdoor low outs after the flop and he was eliminated from the tournament in 5th place.

Michael McKenna Eliminated in 7th Place ($58,918); Corey Hochman Eliminated in 6th Place ($77,763)

• Nível 27: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante
Corey Hochman
Corey Hochman

In the first hand of the day, Corey Hochman shoved for 170,000 from the hijack, and Joe Hachem called on the button. Michael McKenna was forced all-in from the big blind for his last 65,000 and the hands were tabled.

Michael McKenna: {q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}
Corey Hochman: {a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Joe Hachem: {a-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}

Hachem took the lead on the {10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{a-Hearts} flop, and improved to two pair on the {9-Hearts} turn. The {6-Diamonds} river failed to provide any help to either of his opponents, and McKenna and Hochman both took their leave on the first hand of the final table.

Final Day of Event #65: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship Kicks Off at Noon

Joe Hachem

A field of 193 players in Event #65: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship has been reduced down to just seven players, with two-time WSOP bracelet winner Nick Schulman and his 3,355,000 chip stack leading the way. Schulman, whose previous best finish in this event was a 35th place performance in last year's edition, will be looking to add another bracelet to the two $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship bracelets that he already owns.

Three more WSOP bracelet winners make up the rest of the top four, with four-time bracelet winner Brian Hastings (2,735,000), 2005 WSOP Main Event champ Joe Hachem (2,430,000), and two-time bracelet winner Chris Vitch (1,940,000) all sitting with playable stacks.

At the other end of the spectrum, Denis Strebkov (885,000) will have some work to do to catch the pack of bracelet winners. He already owns a third-place finish in Event #51: $2,500 Mixed Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better this summer, proving he already has prowess at the limit version of Omaha Hi-Lo.

Two players come into the final day with extreme short stacks, as Corey Hochman (170,000) returns with just barely over two big blinds to start the day. Somehow, that's not the shortest stack returning for Day 4, as last year's $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship runner-up Michael McKenna will be all-in on the very first hand of play, as his 65,000 in chips will go right into the big blind when play commences.

Cards will be in the air at noon local time, and fans will be able to catch all the action on CBS All Access starting at 1 p.m. local time, although with Schulman leading this final table, another commentator will have to take the place of the multi-faceted poker pro. Who will walk away with the $463,670 top prize and the coveted WSOP gold bracelet? Stay tuned to the PokerNews Live Reporting blog to follow all the action!
