The final five players returning for Day 4, the Final Day of Event #40: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship, has been set in stone. Today, those final five names will be chiseled down to one Champion.
Leading the way when the players take their seats at the PokerGO final table will be end-of-day chip-leader Kevin Gerhart (2,720,000-2x WSOP Winner). This marks the second day in a row that Gerhart has led the chip counts at the end of the day, and he will be looking to do it one more time on his way to a potential WSOP championship bracelet alongside the $361,124 in first-place cash.
Event #40: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship Final Five Seat Draw
|Seat||Player||Country||Chip Count||Big Bets|
|1||Brandon Shack-Harris||United States||540,000||5|
|2||Eddie Blumenthal||United States||2,400,000||20|
|3||Bryce Yockey||United States||1,445,000||12|
|4||Marco Johnson||United States||1,840,000||15|
|5||Kevin Gerhart||United States||2,720,000||23|
Standing in the way of Gerhart we have Eddie Blumenthal (2,400,000) who bagged up second in chips after a late-run towards the end of play on day three. Today, a win would lock up Blumenthal’s first WSOP gold bracelet, as he looks to improve on his 4th place finish in Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Eight or Better Championship earlier this series.
Rounding out the final five are Marco Johnson (1,840,000-2x WSOP Winner), Bryce Yockey (1,445,000-1x WSOP Winner), and Brandon Shack-Harris (540,000-2x WSOP Winner). Look for each of these experienced poker professionals to keep everyone sharp at this championship finale.
Play will resume with 23 minutes left in level 23; with blinds of 30,000/60,000, playing 60,000/120,000 limits.
