The third and final scheduled day of play in Event #54: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship begins Friday at 12 noon local time at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino when 39 of the most fearsome pot-limit Omaha players will battle it out for the top prize of $938,732 and a WSOP gold bracelet.

At the head of the pack is Scott Clements, who bagged 1,700,000 chips at the end of play on Day 2 in pursuit of his third bracelet. A longtime expert in the Omaha variants, Clements already has two bracelets to his name that he earned in a $3,000 Omaha Hi/Lo event in 2006 and a $1,500 pot-limit Omaha event in 2007. But with players such as Michail Karapanos (1,133,000), Ben Lamb (1,090,000), Ryan Miller (1,011,000) and John Racener (987,000) taking big stacks out of the bag as well, the road to victory won't be an easy one for anybody.

Other familiar faces returning to the felt for Day 3 include Chris Lee (803,000), Johnny Lodden (672,000), Jason DeWitt (657,000), Eoghan O'Dea (376,000), John Monnette (246,000), Mike Gorodinsky (228,000) and Bobby Oboodi (193,000).

This event is scheduled to play down to a winner on Day 3, but with 39 players still remaining in contention, it is likely that play will continue for a fourth day. When play resumes at 12, blinds will begin at Level 20 at 8,000/16,000.

Michail Karapanos raised to 48,000 from the small blind and Christopher Frank, who had only about 75,000 chips to start the hand, called from the big blind.

The flop came {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts}, Karapanos bet to put Frank at risk, and the latter called. Karapanos turned over {A-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Spades}, the board ran out with the {A-Hearts} on the turn and {10-Hearts} on the river, Frank's hand was instantly mucked and Karapanos' pair of aces was good enough to win the pot and send Frank to the cage.

Le and Lamb Run Hot Early On

Nível 20 : 8,000/16,000, 0 ante

A big pot was brewing between Ben Lamb and Yan Shing Tsang, and the former bet the {J-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} turn for 230,000 from the cutoff. There were 235,000 in the pot, which Tsang verified with the dealer, and he ultimately folded.

Meanwhile over on Table 600, three players including Tommy Le limped in, then Ryan Miller squeezed to 104,000 and only Le called. The flop of {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and the {K-Spades} turn were checked. On the {7-Hearts} river, Le bet 85,000 and Miller folded.

Jason DeWitt Doubles Through Ryan Miller

Nível 20 : 8,000/16,000, 0 ante

Ryan Miller and Jason DeWitt were heads-up on a flop of {J-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and Miller, who was in the hijack, bet 115,000. DeWitt called from the cutoff.

The turn brought the {4-Hearts} and Miller bet 300,000, putting DeWitt to a decision for most of his remaining chips. DeWitt shoved and Miller called to put him at risk,

Jason DeWitt: {J-Hearts}{J-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}
Ryan Miller: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}{K-Hearts}{6-Clubs}

DeWitt had a commanding lead with top set and a flush draw while Miller needed to improve on the river in order to take the pot. The {6-Hearts} gave DeWitt the winning flush and he doubled up.

Three Players Down

Nível 20 : 8,000/16,000, 0 ante

Mosley Dominique busted in a big three-way pot to Aleksei Altshuller just before Hani Mio also sent Nikolai Sears to the rail. Last but not least, Dermot Blain was spotted leaving the tournament area as well.

In Dominique's knockout, he had raised to 32,000 and Aleksei Altshuller called. Cyrus Partow then three-bet to 152,000 and both players called. On the {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{6-Spades} flop, Dominique pushed all in for his last 97,000 and Altshuller reraised the pot to force out Partow.

Mosley Dominique: {Q-Clubs}{J-Spades}{10-Hearts}{7-Clubs}
Aleksei Altshuller: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{5-Spades}

The {2-Clubs} turn left Dominique drawing dead, making the {5-Hearts} river a formality.

Meanwhile Blain busted in a battle of the blinds. His cards were already in the muck and Murat Tulek raked in the pot. According to Tulak, he limped in, Blain bet the pot and then shoved a {7-}{4-}{2-} flop with the seven and an ace in his hand. Tulek called with {6-}{5-}{4-}{2-} for two pair and the straight draw. He immediately got the straight and Blain was done for the day.

DeWitt Gets a Fold

Nível 20 : 8,000/16,000, 0 ante

Jason DeWitt raised to 33,000 from middle position and Robert Cowen made a pot-sized three-bet to 123,000 from the button, committing the majority of his stack. After a few moments of thought, DeWitt called, and the two players saw a flop of {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{8-Spades}. DeWitt checked and Cowen checked behind.

The turn brought the {5-Diamonds}, DeWitt bet 100,000, and Cowen folded.

Cowen Doubles; Oboodi Doesn't

Nível 20 : 8,000/16,000, 0 ante

Johnny Lodden raised and called the shove of table neighbor Robert Cowen for 94,000 in total.

Robert Cowen: {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs}
Johnny Lodden: {10-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}

The board came {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{9-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and Cowen doubled.

At almost the same time, Bobby Oboodi and Mike Gorodinsky got near-identical stacks in preflop with Oboodi as the player at risk holding {K-}{J-}{9-}{7-}. Gorodinsky held {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and saw the board run out {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{A-Spades}. The two pair of Oboodi on the flop were second-best as Gorodinsky rivered trips aces.
