Eli Elezra Leads Final Six Players in Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship

When Day 4 of Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship begins at 2:00 p.m. local time, the last 6 remaining players out of the 169-entry field will resume battle at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, each in hot pursuit of the $417,921 first prize and WSOP gold. Leading the way is three-time bracelet winner Eli Elezra, who began Day 3 as the chip leader bagged 2,700,000 chips at the conclusion of play.

Although Elezra has a substantial lead — the next largest stack belongs to Adam Coats with 1,820,000 — he’s facing some unsurprisingly tough competition. Two-time bracelet winners Paul Volpe (1,600,000) and Viacheslav Zhukov (970,000) are still in the hunt, and they’re joined by accomplished players Kyle Miaso (1,275,000) and an extremely short-stacked Dustin Dirksen (140,000). Here’s a look at the seating chart:

Seat Player Country Stack
1 Dustin Dirksen United States 140,000
2 Viacheslav Zhukov Russia 970,000
3 Adam Coats United States 1,820,000
4 Paul Volpe United States 1,600,000
5 Kyle Miaso United States 1,275,000
6 Eli Elezra United States 2,700,000

Day 4 play will resume at Level 21 with limits of 40,000/80,000 with just three minutes left on the clock. This event will be live streamed and is scheduled to play down to a winner today.
