All In and... a Chop

• Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante

David Bach called on the button and Nick Binger raised to 240,000. Bach called and a {10-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop followed.

Binger bet 300,000, but was faced with a decision when Bach re-raised all in for 1,450,000 total. Binger took about two minutes before calling, showing {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{3-Hearts}. Bach tabled {A-Spades}{K-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades}, meaning both were tied for the lead with ace-king and each had low draws.

The {2-Spades} turn and {9-Spades} river improved neither player's hand, chopping the pot.

Welcome to PokerNews' coverage of Event #57, the $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better. Three days and 28 levels of play have not been enough as two men remain with hopes of capturing the coveted WSOP gold bracelet.

On one side of the table is David Bach. The Athens, GA native is looking to add a second WSOP bracelet to his wrist. He came close last week, finishing third in Event #49, the $2,500 2-7 Limit Triple Draw Lowball and will no doubt be looking to seal the deal this week. On the other side of the table is Nick Binger. With two third-place finishes on his WSOP résumé , Binger will look to break through and capture the first WSOP gold bracelet for the Binger family. The support for Binger last night was immense as his brother Michael, Liv Boeree, and Dan Shak were among those on the rail in support.

Binger holds the lead to start the day, sitting with 3,230,000 to Bach's 2,055,000. Play resumes today at about 4:05 p.m. PST, about one hour from now, so be sure to join us then to see who captures the gold!
