Daniel Negreanu Aiming for Seventh WSOP Bracelet in $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Day 4

Daniel Negreanu

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:
