In case you didn't read our news on Event #24 (Omaha Hi-LowSplit 8-or-better) this morning, we can inform you that Phil Ivey (8 WSOP bracelets), Scotty Nguyen (5 WSOP bracelets) and Joe Cassidy were the last 3 players fighting for a first prize of $294,777 and a gold coveted bracelet.

About 2 hours ago, Day 3 came to an end and unfortunately Phil Ivey, who finished 2nd in Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em a few days ago, has once again missed out on his 9th bracelet as he was eliminated in 3rd place by Cassidy.

Tomorrow at 2 PM local time play will resume with Joe Cassidy holding a 3-1 chip lead against legend Scotty Nguyen. Cassidy has cashed in quite a few WSOP events in the past years and his total tournament winnings exceed $1,3 million, but he's still looking to win his first gold bracelet.

It will be interesting to see if he can keep a cool head tomorrow and defeat Scotty Nguyen, who has 37 cashes and 5 gold bracelets on his WSOP CV. May the best player win!

The Cassidy guy is obviously no newbie, Scotty might have a tough game here, but a 3:1 lead isn't so bad if you're Scotty.

He is capable of either making a sweet comeback or losing it quick.

3:1 isnt that bad at HU, but that could also end it really quick if Nguyen has no luck.

So Ivey was the one left behind by Cassidy and Nguyen… Well, someone had to go and being all so close when they got to that step, anyone could reasonably fall. There goes the 9 bracelet objective, passing to the next event he will (?) be playing this year. After this, Cassidy got a 3-1 chip lead so everything is on his side, except expertise, which Nguyen, with 5 bracelets, gathers more.

Big congratulations to Cassidiy for taking down the first place and also that beautiful gold bracelet Big Smile
