The final table of Event #52: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship will play down to a winner today, awarding one of eight accomplished players a WSOP bracelet (in the case of Jeremy Ausmus and Will Jaffe, a second).
Seeing off the majority of the 50 Day 3 combatants in this 518-entry event yesterday, these final eight played ten one-hour levels to find themselves within hailing distance of WSOP gold, in one of the toughest events of the summer:
Day 4 Seat Draw
|Seat||Player||Country||Chip Count||Big Blinds|
|1||James Park||United Kingdom||4,995,000||25|
|2||Will Jaffe||United States||1,150,000||6|
|5||Jeremy Ausmus||United States||2,405,000||12|
|6||Dash Dudley||United States||6,550,000||33|
|8||Kyle Montgomery||United States||5,960,000||30|
In the lead is Dash Dudley, whose 6,550,000 chips put him a nose ahead of Kyle Montgomery and former WSOP Main Event finalist Eoghan O’Dea, the two closest to him in chips. Dudley has warmed up for the PLO Championship with two cashes in this poker variant already this year (Event #25 and Event #40) and is looking for his first bracelet this afternoon.
Along with the WSOP jewelry comes top prize of $1,086,967, the heftiest chunk of an overall prize pool totaling $4,869,200. A total of 78 players have been/will be paid, with a minimum cash worth $15,029.
Prizes remaining to be awarded:
