What was originally scheduled to be the final day of play in Event #60: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, instead ended after 10 levels of play with nine players remaining.

Leading the charge is Scott Abrams who ended the day with 6,600,000 in chips. His surge in chips was sparked by a three way all in hand in which he took 3/4ths of the pot and increased his stack by 2 million. He would continue to build as the night wore on and entered the final table as chip leader. Second in chips with 4,675,000 is Rodney Burt who won a big pot at the very end of play with a straight and nut low scoop. Jordan Spurlin ended the day third in chips with 4,250,000.

Anthony Zinno ended the day with 3,995,000 in chips and is still in contention for his second WSOP bracelet. Meanwhile, Erik Seidel’s quest for a 9th bracelet is still on course as he is among the final nine, bagging 1,490,000.

In order to get to the final table plenty of chip carnage was needed. The day was strewn with several tournament life casualties as many players were cut down in their attempt to advance to the final table. A slew of big names were eliminated just before the final three tables including the defending champion Joey Couden, who was taken out in 33rd place to end his attempt to go back-to-back. Mike Matusow soon followed him out the door in 31st and Michael Mizrachi, who started the day third in chips, exited the field in 27th place just before the three table redraw in a hand featuring a double elimination.

Start of the day chip leader Matt O’Donnell was eliminated in 17th place as he sent his entire stack over to the rising one of David Prociak, who would ride the momentum to a sizeable chip lead in the late part of the day. However his time on top would turn out to be short lived, as he was widdled away to elimination in 11th place. And finally to end the day Ari Engel was taken out in 10th place as his bid to win his second bracelet within a week came up short.

Play will resume at 2 p.m. local time at level 31 with blinds at 80,000-160,000 and limits at 160,000 and 560,000. Play will carry on until a bracelet winner is finally crowned.

End of Play

The day has ended with nine players remaining. Chip counts and recap to follow shortly.

Straight and Nut Low For Burt

• Nível 30: 60,000-120,000, 0 ante
Rodney Burt
Rodney Burt

The board read {3-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and Rodney Burt bet the maximum on the river. Jon Turner had a decision to make and thought it over for a while before calling.

"Straight, nut low" said Burt and quickly turned over {a-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Spades}{2-Spades} to prove it. Turner could only shake his head as his chips were sent over to the growing stack of Burt.

Turner Doubles Leaving Miaso on Fumes

• Nível 30: 60,000-120,000, 0 ante
Kyle Miaso and Jon Turner

Kyle Miaso opened pot for 420,000 on the cutoff and Jon Turner flatted behind. It was just the two of them as the dealer laid {8-Spades}{6-Hearts}{10-Spades} on the flop. Miaso moved all in at this point and Turner wasn't going anywhere.

Jon Turner: {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}{a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}
Kyle Miaso: {a-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Spades}

Turner had flopped a set and the {j-Spades} turn and {8-Hearts} river were safe, giving him a boost, whereas Miaso is in trouble now.

Not the Right Time For Beer

• Nível 30: 60,000-120,000, 0 ante

On a board reading {7-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{7-Spades}{j-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} Kyle Miaso was facing a river bet of 225,000 from Jordan Spurlin. He was deep in the tank considering it while his stream of thought was briefly interrupted by a drink server who wandered by with drinks and asked him if he would like a beer.

"Not the right time buddy!" said Miaso with a slight smile on his face. He thought it over for a little while longer before folding, still amused by the timing of the question posed to him from seemingly out of nowhere and Spurlin took in the pot.

More of the Same

• Nível 30: 60,000-120,000, 0 ante

For a moment it looked like there could be a double up or an elimination after Connor Drinan opened to 240,000 and was three-bet by Jordan Spurlin, who made it 700,000 to play. Erik Seidel didn't want to be left out and cold four-bet all in for a total of 1,130,000. Drinan passed but the price was right for Spurlin.

Spurlin turned over {a-Spades}{k-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and Seidel tabled {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. The flop brought out the {2-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Hearts}, giving both players the wheel straight and when the {9-Hearts} and {8-Spades} completed the board, they chopped it up.
