The final day of Event #62: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha 8 or Better has arrived.

This tournament had a total of 725 entries with the final 13 returning on Wednesday 3rd November at 2:00 p.m. where they will play down to a winner.

In a spectacular hand near the end of Day 2, Matthew Kaplan (3,145,000 chips) took over the chip lead and will carry that lead into the final day as he searches for his first WSOP gold bracelet.
