Day 1 in the WSOPE Event #3, £5,000 Pot Limit Omaha ended a few days ago. Only 45 out of the 165 players survived the day.
One of the first players out were Gus Hansen. Also french player David Benyamine and last years Main Event winner from Norway, Anette Obrestad, were busted out during the 8 hours of play at day one.
Day 2 which ended yesterday brings the amount of players down to 9 and we therefor have a final table for later today with danish player Theo Jørgensen as chipleader.
Iikka Koskinen called a preflop raise from Theo Jørgensen. The flop came 8 7 3 and both players checked. Turn showed J, Koskinen made a bet and Jørgensen raised him. Koskinen decided to go all-in with Jørgensen calling him afterwards showing up J 9 9 8, two pairs. At this time Koskinen was leading with A J T 9, a nut straight and an inside straight flush draw. The river came J and gave a full house for Theo Jørgensen and Iikka Koskinen finished 10th as the "bubble boy", taking home a prize of £18,562.
