There are only 3 remaining players in Event 24: $5,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better. Even though some might not be familiar with the game of this event, you still probably find it interesting to know that poker giants Scotty Nguyen and Phil Ivey are chasing another bracelet!

That's right! Scotty has the chance of winning his 6th gold bracelet and Phil can take home his 9th! Both of them have plenty of chips to gamble with and it will be interesting to see if the other player, chip leader Joe Cassidy, can do anything to stop them.

We will be back with more information as soon as a winner has been crowned!

Only three left and now the worst is coming: none of them could expect a bigger competitor than what they just got! Three big time well known pros in final final 3 field of this event, and none of them is there for the Money, but for the honour of taking this bracelet. Facing this guys is always difficult in any phase of a tourney, but in the end? And well stacked? Tough fight!

Ivey went out in third place. So no bracelet for him, and most likely no bracelet for Nguyen, as he has only 850k in chips against 3 million of his opponent in the heads up.

so is it hard to say what format omaha hi lo is being played in- fl, pl or nl...and why does author think many players are not familiar with this type of game? look arounf stars and you will see enough action on omaha 8 tables at all limits. actually it is a very nice game with less luck factor than in holdem

Dam tbats a sickener for Ivey, so close this year to getting a couple.

Would be great for Scotty a real character of the game to win this, but thats gonna be tough against a 4:1 chip advantage for the leader

Ivey is on the rocks but i doubt he will overcome the other 2

So it seems that Cassidy defeated both poker legends on this complex poker game so big congrats once again for him!

I think the fact that you got a wsop gold bracelet and the fact that you were better that Ivey and Scotty is priceless Big Smile
