Michael Mizrachi

It’s time for Day 3 of Event #60: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better.

Can Michael Mizrachi win his second bracelet of 2019 and sixth overall to add to his already illustrious career? Can Ari Engel continue his hot streak and win his second bracelet within a week? Can Joey Couden do the unthinkable and repeat as champion in this event? These storylines headline the day, as 58 players out of an original field of 1,117 entries will descend upon the Amazon room to battle for the bracelet.

The aforementioned headliners bring healthy stacks with them into the final day; Engel with 798,000, Couden with 403,000 and Mizrachi, who starts the day third in chips with a big stack of 1,196,000. They are not the only ones with immense poker acumen in the outstanding group of players that are still bracelet hunting, as they will be joined by a total of 13 former WSOP bracelet winners, including Scott Clements, who has three bracelets, and who sits behind 769,000 chips. Four-time winner Mike Matusow (378,000) and Erik Seidel (497,000) who is one of poker’s all-time legends with an incredible eight WSOP bracelets to his name, are both still hopeful of adding another very soon in this tournament.

Two more bracelet winners sit atop the heap to start the day. Matt O’Donnell who gathered a massive stack of 1,388,000 yesterday, will take the chip lead into Day 3 and David Prociak who bagged 1,030,000 which is good enough for the fourth largest stack.

James Chen (1,227,000) and Jordan Spurlin (1,004,000) are the other big stacks who will look to win their first bracelet and write their name amongst poker’s elite as well Jon Turner (1,008,000) who will look to add his first bracelet to his list of 73 WSOP cashes.

Play resumes at 2 p.m. local time in the Amazon Room at level 21 with blinds set at 8,000/16,000 and limits at 16,000 to 56,000. The original plan was to play down to a winner today, however with 58 players still remaining that plan is flexible and it is possible that adjustments will be made, all depending on the pace of eliminations.

PokerNews will, of course, keep everyone abreast of the latest updates to the schedule, the latest eliminations and the big hands that will shape the story of this star-studded event.
