The Final Day of Event #80: $1,500 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha Gets Underway at Noon
Out of a field of 1,250 players, seven competitors will make their way back to the felt at noon local time to continue to battle it out until a winner is crowned in Event#80: $1,500 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha.
Ayaz Mahmood will start the day as the chip leader with an impressive stack of 8,430,000. Mahmood is the only of the seven players left that already has a bracelet. He will be looking to claim another victory at the WSOP.
He is followed by Lucas Greenwood (6,515,000). Greenwood is a dominant force in the poker world and a regular face in the high rollers. He will try to win the first gold bracelet of his poker career.
Jeremy Kottler sits in third with 5,145,000. Kottler has $438,014 in total earnings at the WSOP including three final tables, and will be looking to close this one out.
Eddie Blumenthal will start the day fourth in chips with 3,240,000 in the bag. Blumenthal has over $1,000,000 in cashes at the WSOP and already has a Circuit ring to show for his work. He will be trying to match that with a bracelet.
Peter Linton will be returning with 3,115,000. Linton has three cashes this summer including a five-figure score in the Main Event. He will be going for a six-figure score this time.
Next in line is Jerry Odeen with 2,380,000. Odeen came very close to a bracelet in 2017 in Event #4: €1,650 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed of the World Series of Poker Europe but ended up getting 4th for €24,046.
Adam Demersseman rounds up the final seven with a stack of 2,315,000. Demersseman has been having a great summer with six cashes and will try to end his summer with a victory.
The remaining seven players are all guaranteed $40,236 but they will all have their eyes on the six-figure first-place prize of $304,793 and the shiny WSOP bracelet.
Cards will be back in the air at noon local time and play will begin at Level 31 with blinds at 100,000/200,000 with a 200,000 big blind ante.
