Mizrachi Leads The Remaining 27 Players

Chip Leader Robert Mizrachi

Welcome to our Day 3 coverage of Event #25: $5,000 Omaha Hi-Low 8-or-Better. The starting field of 241 players is down to just 27 hopefuls, each looking to capture the $277,519 first-place prize and a coveted World Series of Poker gold bracelet.

Leading the way with 339,500 is Robert Mizrachi. No stranger to Omaha Hi-Low 8-or-Better, Mizrachi is looking for his first big WSOP score in this specific game to go along with his excellent H.O.R.S.E. and EIght-Game results. However, that's far from an easy task as the competition behind him is fierce. Second in chips is Francesco Barbaro (278,000) and he has an Omaha Hi-Low 8-or-Better bracelet to his name. Shawn Buchanan (263,500) is third in chips and the argument can be made that he is the best player out there yet to capture a bracelet. Ryan Lenaghan (180,500), Mike Matusow (95,000), and Bart Hanson (89,000) each final tabled this event last year and are back in the money looking to finish on top this time around. Throw in two-time Omaha Hi-Low 8-or-Better bracelet winner Viacheslav Zhukov (172,500) and the rest of this star-studded field and it's going to be a very exciting finish!

Play commences at 2pm local time and will carry on for ten levels (or eleven). A champion may arise by then, or we'll be back tomorrow. Regardless, keep it here for updates on all of the exciting action!
