Dylan Weisman Leads Final Five of $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed

Dylan Weisman

They all have never won a World Series of Poker bracelet, but at the end of today, one of the five players remaining in Event #28: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed will achieve a poker player's dream of becoming a WSOP champion.

Leading the way is Dylan Weisman. The UpSwing Poker coach and Twitch streamer busted Manan Bhandari in seventh place and pulled away at the end of Day 2 to finish with 9,435,000. Weisman is usually found playing high stakes Pot-Limit Omaha cash games, but he does have one previous WSOP cash in the $25,000 High Roller Pot-Limit Omaha in 2019.

Behind him is Alexander Yen with 5,530,000. Yen is in the same position he was at the start of Day 2, in second place on the leaderboard. Originally from Lisle, Illinois, Yen is making his sixth WSOP cash dating back to 2010 but his first appearance at a final table.

Germany's Tim Van Loo begins the day in third place with 4,545,000. This is not only Van Loo's first WSOP final table, it's also his first cash. His biggest live score came just a month ago, when he finished runner-up in an event in Slovakia for $22,934.

Ran Niv of Israel finished Day 2 with 1,000,000. Niv has 10 career WSOP cashes dating back to 2016 and $124,000 in career live earnings.

Then there is Craig Chait with 880,000, at the bottom of the leaderboard but with the most impressive resume. Chait is the only one of the five to have made a WSOP final table before, finishing in fifth in the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. and seventh in the $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball, both in 2019. Chait made a miraculous runner-runner full house to double through Chase Fujita late last night to stay alive. Originally from New Jersey but now residing in Los Angeles, he has $818,000 in live tournament earnings.
