Yesterday, Joe Cassidy, Phil Ivey and Scotty "the Prince" Nguyen played three-handed in Event #24: Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-better. Ivey had the chance to win his 9th bracelet and was in second place for quite some time. However, things didn't turn out the way Ivey had planned and soon he was running low on chips, then eliminated by Cassidy in 3rd place for $136,046.
The two finalists, Cassidy and Nguyen, then agreed to continue the heads-up the following day because it was past 3 am in the morning and they had been playing for many long hours.
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.
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!
