Yuval Bronshtein in Pole Position for Third WSOP Bracelet in Event #15: Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship
After three days of fixed limit action, Event #15: Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship begins its conclusion at 4 p.m. PT inside the Ballys Thunderdome, Las Vegas.
PokerNews live updates will be on a 60-minute delay, as to not affect the PokerGO broadcast, which gets going at 5 p.m. PT.
The 2022 World Series of Poker so far, has been all about breaking attendance record, with field sizes exceeding expectations.
The Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship was no exception and saw an all-time high of 196 entries. Those players created the $1,827,700 prize pool, with the lion's share being awarded today.
The final five players have all guaranteed themselves a payday of at least $105,913. However, that would feel like just a consolation prize, as everybody will be dreaming of getting their hands on the $440,757 first-place prize and WSOP Gold Bracelet.
Entering Day 4 as chip leader is two-time WSOP bracelet winner Yuval Bronshtein. The Israeli poker player won his first piece of WSOP hardware in 2019, taking down Event #13: $1,500 No Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw for $96,278. Two years later, he picked up his second bracelet after being the last player standing in Event #12: $1,500 Limit Hold'em ($124,374).
Dustin Dirksen enters the day second in chips and is just one of two players left in this event who has yet to win a bracelet. Dirksen has come close before, with two recorded WSOP runner-up finishes. This is his seventh official WSOP final table appearance and will no doubt be looking to get the monkey off of his back.
Rounding out the top three chip stacks is Daniel Zack. The 2019 WSOP $2,500 Limit Mixed Triple Draw winner is likely the most known name still in the competition. Zack has earned over $1.2 million in winnings under the WSOP umbrella from an impressive 83 cashes.
Ray Dehkharghani managed to pilot over a 1,695,000 chip stack into Day 4, despite being left with just one big bet at one stage in Day 3. Dehkharghani's best ever cash came at the 2016 WSOP, where he was victorious in Event #20: $10,000 Razz Championship. He defeated Jason Mercier at heads-up play to get his first WSOP title and the $273,338 up top.
Jake Liebeskind starts proceedings in the danger zone, and has just under two big bets in his stack. The Californian has $96,372 in recorded tournament earnings, meaning whatever happens today, he will have secured the best cash of his poker career to date. It will be his second in the money finish of the 2022 WSOP, as he placed in 155th in Event #7: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better for $2,400 just a week ago.
Play resumes today on Level 24 (limits 80,000/160,000) with 60-minutes still on the clock.
Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship Final Table
|Table||Seat||Player||Country||Chip Count||Big Bets|
