After three long days of batting on the green felt, today a new Omaha Hi/Lo 8 or Better champion will be crowned. The winner will take home $317,076 in addition to a World Series of Poker gold bracelet.
Of the 134 players who entered Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi/Lo 8 or Better Championship, just five remain. Leading the way is Ari Engel, who put on an impressive display last night during the unofficial final table by knocking out multiple players and accumulating more than double the number of chips of his closest competitor.
Phil Hellmuth will enter Day 4 as the short stack, but will surely be aiming to add to his poker legacy by securing a record-setting 16th career WSOP gold bracelet.
