Four tables remain in WSOPE £5k PLO Event.

Thursday, 24 September 2009

From a starting field of 154 entrants in the £5,000 + 250 Pot-Limit Omaha event, the action in Event 3 has been whittled down to 36 – just four tables, packed to the brim with big names and big players.

Full Tilt pro and co-owner Howard Lederer (above) joins multiple WSOP bracelet-winner and PokerStars PRO Barry Greenstein in the survivor’s list, while Tom “durrrr” Dwan and Shaun Deeb make up the online roster. In addition, reigning champion of this event Theo Jorgenson is still in the hunt with 75,000 chips in ninth place.

Sorel Mizzi sits pretty on 155,000; just behind chip leader Jani Vilmunen. Behind him is Howard Lederer on 135,000 and Hit Squad member Karl Marenholz is up there too. At the bottom of the pack we find Joe Beevers and Tom Dwan, clinging on with 35k apiece.

The 154 entrants generated a prize pool of over three quarters of a million pounds, with more than £200,000 being offered alongside a WSOPE bracelet for first place.

Play resumes at 2pm today.
