Only seven players remain following the penultimate day of Super High Roller Bowl: $100K Pot-Limit Omaha at the PokerGO Studio from ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Isaac Haxton bagged the chip lead and holds nearly 40% of the chips in play. Haxton finds himself in a familiar situation, as only a few weeks ago, he held half of the chips in play going into the final table of Super High Roller Bowl VIII. He would go on to win that event, and now he is in pole position to win another SHRB ring.
Next in the chip counts with less than half of Haxton's stack is Day 1 leader Jared Bleznick. Stephen Chidwick, Chino Rheem, Isaac Kempton, Frank Crivello, and Aaron Katz round out the players returning to the final day of play.
Bleznick increased his stack by less than 10% on the day, but it was still enough to notch the second spot on the leaderboard heading into the final table. Meanwhile, Haxton isn't the only one coming into the third and final day on a hot streak, as Chidwick won the Poker Masters Purple Jacket less than a month ago, and Rheem was crowned PGT Mixed Games II series champion only a few days ago.
Haxton came into the day 13th in chips out of 17 returning players. He chipped up early and made several boats to propel himself further up the leaderboard before he cemented his insurmountable lead when he eliminated Michael Duek near the end of the day.
On the final hand of the night, Daniel Negreanu got his remaining chips in on the flop against Bleznick. Negreanu was in rough shape with bottom set against middle set, and although the turn brought a sweat, the river bricked out, and "Kid Poker" was eliminated on the money bubble of the biggest-ever buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha tournament.
The field of 38 entrants generated a prize pool of $3,800,000 and the top seven finishers earned a piece of it. Each remaining player is guaranteed $152,000, but all eyes will be on the $1,292,000 first-place prize, 400 PGT Points, and the Super High Roller Bowl: Pot-Limit Omaha ring.
