452 players bought in for the $2,500 Omaha Hi-Lo Split 8 or better event and in the end it was Derek Raymond who picked up the bracelet.
Raymond, who started the day ninth out of 23 in chips, battled his way through a final table including Michael Keiner, Fabio Copploa and Scott Bohlman to set up a heads up encounter with Mark Tenner.The marathon heads up battle between the final two was akin to an old style heavyweight boxing bout. Both players bobbed and weaved, landed a few telling blows but neither was able to land the big one. With the clock ticking past 3.30am and with blinds already higher than the scheduled maximum, Derek Raymond finally delivered the knockout punch holding 3d4c5c10s on a Jd7h2dAd4d board.He collected the first prize of $229,192 and with it his first WSOP bracelet.It had been a day of big swings for the eventual winner who saw his stack drop from 1 million to just 120,000 at one stage. “You never give in, you’re playing for a bracelet,” he said. “You don’t need the sleep. I wouldn’t trade this (bracelet) for anything.At the start play today the railbirds were hoping that Mike Matusow would win his 4th WSOP bracelet. It wasn’t to be Mike The Mouth’s day though as he busted out in 17th place.The final table positions and payouts were as follows: 1. Derek Raymond - $229,192 2. Mark Tenner - $141,647 3. Scott Bohlman - $93,199 4. Fabio Coppola - $65,094 5. Josh Schlein - $48,028 6. Sirous Jamshidi - $37,350 7. Michael Keiner - $30,562 8. Mark Gregorich - $26,213 9. Pat Poels - $23,541
