Josh Arieh and Tommy Le Lead Final Five of Event #39: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha

It is time for the final day of Event #39: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha (8-Handed). Five players return at 4 p.m. local time to vie for a prized WSOP bracelet and the grand prize money of $204,766.

Here is a brief bio of each of the returning five, which features bracelet winners and a new face;

The most prominent name of the final five is none other than Josh Arieh who will start the day with the chip lead with 6,330,000. As poker fans know, Arieh is most well known for jumping on the national scene back in 2004 when he finished third in the WSOP Main Event, where he was featured prominently on ESPN and became a household poker name for a while. The native of Alpharetta, GA has since stayed a force in the poker world as he won his second WSOP bracelet in 2005 (his first coming in 1999).

Arieh has recently made a resurgence to the top of the game as he had a strong 2019 WSOP, including a runner-up finish in the 2019 WSOP $50K Poker Players Championship. Today he will be looking to ride his chip lead to that elusive third WSOP bracelet as he has finished runner-up on three occasions in his career.

5Gabriel Andrade1,400,000Houston,TX/Ecuador373$500,761

Second in chips to start the day with 5,300,000 is Tommy Le of Tustin, CA. Le is always a threat in Pot-Limit Omaha as he owns a WSOP Bracelet from 2017 when he won the very prestigious $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship for nearly $1 million dollars, a whopping $938,732. Le also has massive six-figure scores from 2016 where he finished second and third in the $25K PLO High Roller and the $10K PLO Championship respectively to combine for over 1 million. Le is a true PLO specialist as over 85% of his career WSOP earnings come from PLO events.

There is a third WSOP Bracelet winner among the remaining five, Ivan Deyra of Le Teich, France. He begins the day third in chips with 5,110,000 and will be looking to ride his French support to a second bracelet. His first bracelet came in the $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em event in the 2019 WSOP. That victory accounts for only half of his career WSOP earnings as he also boasts three WSOP international circuit rings.

Gabriel Andrade enters the day as the short stack with 1,400,000. Andrade is a very accomplished player with several good non-WSOP poker results to his name. He will be looking to break down the door and win his first WSOP and just as important to him, become the first player representing Ecuador to win a WSOP bracelet. Andrade came very close to achieving that feat earlier in the 2021 WSOP as he finished runner-up in Event #13: $3,000 Freezout No’Limit Hold’em for $229,848.

Juxtaposed with the experienced and winnings of the other four players at the table will be Robert Blair (fourth in chips with 2,450,000). A native of Bloomington, IN as he often wears Indiana Hoosier gear at the table; Blair is a newcomer to the WSOP scene. While he has a handful of poker results outside of the WSOP, this is his first recorded career WSOP cash and what a first result it is as he is guaranteed at least $47,492.

This table will be featured on PokerGO streaming and play down to a winner. PokerNews will provide the updates live as the action happens.
