Day 3 Completed
Day 3 Completed
Day 3 of Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship began with 18 players and after five levels of play only five remain with Ari Engel standing tall as chip leader going into the fourth and final day of this championship event.
The day started off fast with an steady influx of eliminations, including WSOP bracelet holders Alan Sternberg, Brian Rast, and Paul Volpe, all of whom were eliminated within the first two levels of play. It didn’t take long to reach the unofficial final table of 10, which started with Day 3 chip leader Andrew Yeh still atop the pack.
Ari Engel and Andrew Yeh shook things up early at the unofficial final table, with Engel eliminating both Chris Vitch and Khamar Xaytavone early on. Meanwhile, Yeh took down a couple large pots that led to the eliminations of both Robert Mizrachi and Ben Landowsky. George Wolff bubbled the final table live stream after surviving as the short stack for quite some time before succumbing to Engel.
Of course, all eyes are sure to be on Phil Hellmuth, who managed to survive the day but heads into Day 4 as the short stack. He will be looking to run up his stack and secure a record-setting 16th career WSOP gold bracelet tomorrow.
The surviving players return tomorrow at 4 p.m. PST and play on a live-stream hosted by PokerGO until a champion is crowned.
