Within 30 levels of one hour each, the field of 911 entries in the 2018 World Series of Poker Event #4: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better has been whittled down to the final four and an extra day was added in order to determine a champion. The lion's share of the $1,229,850 prize pool is still up for grabs with $74,058 guaranteed to each of the final four finalists, however, all eyes are set on the coveted gold bracelet, the top prize of $239,771 and the bragging rights that come along with it.
Among the last 16 players in the field were 15 Americans, but it is France's Julien Martini that will enter the final day of the tournament with the chip lead. Railed by Taiwan's James Chen, Martini vaulted himself to the top of the counts in the last levels of Day 3 and will return with a stack of 3,720,000, good enough for just shy of 19 full big bets.
In second place is Kate Hoang with 2,255,000 and a big gap follows with the short stacks William Kopp (440,000) and Mack Lee (425,000) both holding just over two full big bets when the action resumes at 2 p.m. local time on the feature table in the Brasilia room. The blinds for level 31 will be 50,000/100,000 with a big bet of 200,000 and the action will be streamed on the Poker Central Twitch channel.
