Jason McPherson, who entered the day with the smallest stack in the room, was all in and at risk with {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} on a board of {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}{7-Spades}{7-Hearts}. Eli Elezra had him at risk with {q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, and the aces held up when the {8-Clubs} bricked off on the river.

McPherson, who said before the day that the largest tournament he had ever played in prior to this one was a $500 buy-in, more than doubled up to 170,000 chips, while Elezra dropped 530,000.

Ortynskiy Leads Final Two Tables; Seven Bracelet Winners Remain

Viatcheslav Ortynskiy

Good afternoon, and welcome back to the Rio All-Suit Hotel & Casino for our continuos coverage of the 45th annual World Series of Poker!

Today is the third and final day of Event #10: $10,000 Limit Omaha Hi-Low Championship, and no one has more chips than Viatcheslav Ortynskiy. The Russian bagged 862,000 at the end of Day 2 - 327,000 more than his nearest competitor, Eli Elezra - and will begin today with nearly 36 big bets.

Chasing him are seven WSOP bracelet winners; Elezra, Richard Ashby, Andrew Brown, Dan Kelly, Perry Friedman, Jeff Lisandro, and Brock Parker. There's also Gregory Jamison, who's reached the final table of this event four times. His deepest run was in 2008, where he finished runner-up for $331,350.

The bubble burst on the final hand of Day 2 - two-time WSOP Omaha eight-or-better bracelet winner Frankie O'Dell exited empty-handed - so play will begin at the start of Level 21 today. The big bet (24,000) is nearly a tenth of the average stack, so the action will be fast and furious from the first pitch.

The cards will be in the air at 2 p.m. PDT, so be sure to stay tuned for all of the action right here on PokerNews!
