Day 3 completed
Entering Event #48: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low at the 2014 World Series of Poker, Tyler Patterson boasted nearly $1.2 million in live tournament earnings, 18 WSOP cashes, and three prior WSOP final tables. Despite all of that, Patterson had yet to wrap a bright, shiny gold bracelet around his wrist. Now that the event has been completed, Patterson can officially call himself a champion as he outlasted a field of 991 players to win the $270,992 first-place prize.
Eleven players remained heading into Day 3 of this event, with Patterson right in the middle of the pack. After scooping a big pot early on in which he crippled Dylan Wilkerson, Patterson shot into the chip lead and he didn't stray too far from the top for the rest of the day.
Wilkerson ended up finishing in ninth place, and then J.R. Flournoy fell in eighth. Bracelet winner Derek Raymond hit the rail in seventh, and he was followed out the door by four-time WSOP champion and 2007 Player of the Year Tom Schneider in sixth place. Gary Kosakowski headed out the door in fifth, and then Jeff Madsen, who was searching for his fourth piece of WSOP hardware, was eliminated in fourth.
The final three players had locked up over six figures, and then it was Cody Crawford to fall first during three-handed play. This set up the heads-up battle between Patterson and two-time WSOP champion Scott Clements, but in the end, Clements just couldn't overcome the powerful Patterson. Despite fighting hard at the end, Clements fell after approximately six and a half hours of play at the final table.
Clements finished runner-up and just missed out on his third gold bracelet, but the $167,686 in prize money should help ease the pain a bit. As for Patterson, he was able to get that sweet taste of WSOP gold on his lips and add $270,992 to his pocket. Congratulations to him and all the winners from Event #48.
