Four-card poker continues to be hot among the community of the high rollers with the U.S. Poker Open Event #8: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha attracting 63 entries to generate a $630,000 prize pool.
This is two entries less than the 65 entries battling it out in Event #2: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha won by Sam Soverel for $175,500.
There won't be a repeat performance for Soverel as he was one of the early casualties of the day.
Jared Bleznick (2,015,000) has the opportunity to put an exclamation point on his first career U.S. Poker Open cash as he will enter Friday's six-max final table with Maxx Coleman (1,980,000) just inches behind.
Joseph Sanders (1,500,000) and Ali Imsirovic (1,305,000) also bagged overnight stacks north of 1 million with Frank Crivello (575,000) and Christopher Usude (510,000) hoping to spin up their short stacks.
