17 Return for Day 3 of Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Abe Mosseri Leads the Pack Going Into Day Three

Welcome to the final day of Event #9, $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship where 17 players return with a chance for the title. The cards will be in the air at 2:00 p.m. local time. The field is led by Abe Mosseri (1,1855,000), but six-time WSOP bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu looms not too far back. Yarron Bendor (1,195,000) is behind Mosseri in second place, while Christopher Vitch (676,000) is third in chips.

The tournament started with 154 players and the play is to play down to a champion today. Everyone who remains is guaranteed a payout of $16,958, with first place paying $391,313, plus the coveted gold bracelet.

The players will vie through 10 one-hour levels, with 15-minute breaks every two levels and a one-hour dinner break after six levels today. As noted they are scheduled to play down to a winner, but if that is not possible then the players can opt to play an extra one level if they are heads-up. If heads-up hasn't been reached by the end of today's 10 levels, then play will conclude on an added Day 4.

Stay tuned to PokerNews.com throughout the day for all the live action as it happens starting at 2 p.m local time.
