Yuval Bronshtein Leads the Final Five Players in Event #15: Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship
The penultimate day of Event #15: Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship has come to a close with just five of the 196 initial entries remaining in the tournament. Those entries generated a prize pool of $1,827,700, with a good portion of that dished out already.
Day 3 saw 24 players return to Paris, Las Vegas and it didn’t take long for that number to dwindle.
Short stack Jose Paz-Gutierrez was the first player to exit the tournament area and he was swiftly followed out of the door by Jake Schwartz.
Matt Woodward and Day 2 chip leader Johannes Becker were the next to go. The flurry of bust-outs continued, with the likes of Todd Brunson, Freddy Deeb and Matt Vengrin falling just before the final table.
Aditya Prasetyo was felted by Dustin Dirksen to become the first final table casualty. Dirksen paired up on the flop which was enough to win the hand.
Ray Henson was sent packing just before the break after Daniel Zack rivered the nut flush to confirm his elimination while leaving Kane Kalas short. Kalas was eliminated just two hands after the players returned to the felt.
Alex Livingston had been at the upper echelons of the chip counts for most of Day 3, but following a hand with Jake Liebeskind, he was left with fumes. He was taken out by Ray Dehkharghani the very next hand.
Bart O’Connell was the last player to go broke on Day 3, but found some solace in the $80,250 payout, his largest ever. His eliminator, Yuval Bronshtein, ended the day as the chip leader.
The final five have locked up a six-figure cash, with fifth-place paying out $105,913, but of course the $440,757 up top and WSOP bracelet will be the target for each player.
Play will resume on Level 24 (limits 80,000/160,000) with 60-minutes still on the clock.
