A Winner Will be Crowned Today in Event #25: Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship

Erik Seidel

With seven players remaining after three days of split-pot action, Event #15: Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship begins its conclusion at 2 p.m. local time inside the Horseshoe and Paris, Las Vegas.

PokerNews live updates will be on a 90-minute delay, as to not affect the PokerGO broadcast, which gets going at 4:30 p.m. local time.

Attendance records have been falling left and right at the 2023 World Series of Poker and The Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship is no exception, garnering an all-time high 212 entries and creating a total prize pool of $1,971,600, with $492,795 and the desired gold bracelet being awarded to the eventual winner.

The final seven players have all guaranteed themselves a payday of at least $61,919 and will be gunning for the Day 4 chip leader, former bracelet winner, Ben Lamb. However, there are only a few big bets that separate Lamb from the other big stacks of Poker Hall of Famer and nine-time bracelet winner, Erik Seidel, who bagged up 2,360,000 in chips and four-time bracelet winner, Brad Ruben, right behind with 2,005,000.

If Seidel can manage to finish on top, he'll join the ranks of Phil Ivey, Johnny Chan and Doyle Brunson with ten WSOP gold bracelets, further solidifying him as one of the all-time legends of the game.

Bracelet winner Johannes Becker from Germany and the U.S.'s James Chen will be looking for some run-good, as they will start the day as the two short stacks, however, because of the nature of the game and the deep structure, either player could potentially be the new chip leader after just one or two pots in which they scoop or take three-quarters.

Players will be returning to Level 25 with blinds at 50,000/100,000 and limits of 100,000/200,000, playing 90-minute levels until the eventual winner is crowned.
