It took over ten hours for 48 players to work their way down to the final nine in the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha with Rebuys event. After several short stacks dropped out quickly early on, action slowed until the cash bubble finally burst.
Clonie Gowen, Rene Mouritsen, Barny Boatman, Erik Seidel, and Jerrod Ankenman were among those who made it to the money. When Francisco Azares went out in 13th, Layne Flack celebrated, noting that thanks to all of his rebuys earlier, he needed to crack the top twelve in order to realize a profit.
Nathan Hagens and Michael Schwartz soon followed Azares, and the remaining ten players gathered around a single table here in the back of the Brasilia room to determine who among them would not be coming back tomorrow.
When that ten-handed table began, Tim "Tmay420" West was the short stack. He battled gamely, though, and still had chips when Kevin O'Donnell got knocked out by Ted Forrest.
Come back tomorrow at 2pm Vegas time to see who among West, Forrest, Flack, and the others emerge as our next WSOP bracelet winner.
