After 10 more levels of play, Event #74: $1,500 Bounty Pot-Limit Omaha has wrapped up with only 9 players bagging and tagging for Day 3 and coming back to the unofficial final table. Those who found a bag will be playing for a $190,219 first-place prize and the coveted gold bracelet.
The day saw 124 entrants take to the tables in the Bally's Ballroom, with each knockout giving the winner a $500 bounty. Play was quick with many all-ins early. A few notables who made Day 2 but could not find a bag for the final table included recent bracelet winners Alex Livingston and Patrick Leonard, Connor Drinan (24th), Vivian Saliba (22nd), and Maxx Coleman (12th).
Unofficial Final Table
|Seat||Player||Country||Chip Count||Big Blinds|
Nolan King bagged the biggest stack with 12,700,000 for a massive lead over the table. King won a huge pot late in the day when he was all in on the turn against Diogo Veiga with 18 outs and made his hand on the river, rocketing his stack to the overwhelming chip lead. King returns with a colossal stack of 212 big blinds and will feel like he has one hand on the bracelet.
Canada's Pei Li (5,525,000) is King's closest rival with 92 big blinds, before the rest of the final table is tightly packed with only a few big blinds separating them. Bracelet winner Konstantin Angelov (2,850,000) is in that chasing pack. Veiga is the shortest stack having lost the huge pot to King late on Day 2.
Players will return for the final day tomorrow, July 11th at 2 p.m. local time when a winner will be determined. Blinds will resume at 30,000/60,000 with a 60,000 ante. There will be a break every two levels and a dinner break if needed.
