2014 WSOP Event #3 Draws Record Player Pool
The 3rd event of the 2014 WSOP – $1,000 Pot Limit Omaha drew the largest no Hold’em player pool in WSOP history. There were 1,128 players seated for the three day event.
Day 1 of the event took its toll as more than 1,000 of the original players were sent packing. Only 108 players would make it to the 2nd day. Some of the more notable players to return for action were Phil Laak, Jason Somerville, Mario Ho and Umberto Brenes. By dinner time the field would be just 20 players large and would continue until a final table was named.
Six players would come back for Day 3 of the first PLO event of the 2014 WSOP. It would take just over 5 hours and nearly 150 hands before Brandon Shack-Harris would emerge with his first WSOP Gold Bracelet and the over $200K first place prize money.
Final Table Results:
1st Place – Brandon Shack-Harris $205,634
2nd Place – Morgan Popham $127,245
3rd Place – Iori Yogo $79,611
4th Place – Steve Billirakis $57,785
5th Place – Matthew Ryan $42,658
