The stage is set for one of the most eye-catching heads-up battles in recent years, as six-time WSOP bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu looks to make it a magnificent seven in Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better. Standing in his way is American Abe Mosseri who holds about a 2-to-1 chip lead at present, but with both players short relative to the blinds, you get the feeling it might not take long when play resumes at 3 p.m.
Today's unscheduled fourth day of play was needed to separate the pair after an extended day's play yesterday failed to find a winner. A topsy-turvy final table saw the likes of John Monnette, Mike Matusow, Anthony Zinno, Ray Dehkharghani and Fabrice Soulier all come up short in their search for a bracelet.
Three-handed play between the aforementioned Negreanu, Mosseri and Yarron Bendor lasted a brutal five-and-a-half hours without an elimination, before Bendor was knocked out by Negreanu.
When Negreanu and Mosseri return today the limits will be 200,000/400,000 with the stacks looking as follows:
|Abe Mosseri||United States||5,135,000|
And here are the results for the rest of the final table so far:
|3||Yarron Bendor||United States||$167,979|
|5||Ilya Dyment||United States||$86,259|
|6||Ray Dehkharghani||United States||$63,831|
|7||Anthony Zinno||United States||$48,287|
|8||Mike Matusow||United States||$37,361|
|9||John Monnette||United States||$29,582|
