Event #25: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Welcome to Day 3 of Event #25: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Eli Elezra

Two days of Event #25 are in the books and it's time to award another bracelet to a new winner as Day 3 of Event #25: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better is set to go with a 2 p.m. start to play down from 23 players to a winner.

Or will it be an old bracelet winner?

Old in the experienced sense, of course, but that's looking likely based on the chip counts heading into the final day. While chip leader Benjamin Dobson has never claimed WSOP gold, the next three players in the counts will be very familiar to anyone who has been following the WSOP over the last several years: Barry Greenstein, Jesse Martin and Eli Elezra. All three are multiple bracelet winners — Greenstein and Elezra with three and Martin with two — and while they all trail Dobson by a sizable margin, they're undoubtedly three of the competitors who bear watching as the tournament winds down.

Other notables heading into Day 3 include two men less famous for their poker play: James Woods and Matt Savage. The former a world-famous actor and the latter one of the premier tournament directors of the past couple of decades, both would make interesting winners as well.

When the tournament resumes at 2 p.m. local time, the remaining players will try to scoop — or at least chop — pots with limits of 10,000/20,000. They'll play down to a winner, who will claim $173,528 in prize money. Stay tuned to PokerNews to find out if one of the old hats, one of the recognizable names or some new face emerges to take it down.
