The PGT PLO Series continued with Event #4: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, and players flocked to the felt for the first Hi-Lo event of the series at the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

Sean Troha (2,095,000) holds the overnight chip lead while Michael Wang (2,035,000) isn't far behind. Yuval Bronshtein (1,815,000), Nick Guagenti (1,715,000), and Jake Schwartz (1,345,000) sit in the middle of the pack, and although Paul Zappulla (995,000) trails on the leaderboard, he's only about a double-up away from the lead.

The 80-entrant field created a total prize pool of $800,000 which paid out the top 12 places. Players reached the money in Level 12 when Poker Hall of Famer Eli Elezra was eliminated on the money bubble. Elezra survived two previous all-ins, but his aces couldn't hold against Nick Guagenti's rivered trips.

Jordan Spurlin (12th - $16,000) was gone shortly after when he got his short stack in, and Allen Le (11th - $24,000) was the next elimination, although Le did pick up his fourth consecutive cash and has made it into the money in all four events of the series thus far.

Daniel Negreanu (10th - $24,000) was the next casualty after being on the losing end of three all-ins in a span of about 10 minutes, Zhen Cai (9th - $32,000) was the next to go when his aces were defeated by Maxx Coleman's turned wheel, and Ben Yu (8th - $32,000) fell just short of the final table after losing the rest of his short stack.

The seven remaining players converged on the final table and would exchange chips around the table for nearly two hours until the next elimination. Eventually, Maxx Coleman got his short stack in against Yuval Bronshtein. Bronshtein turned the nut low and rivered trips to scoop, and the remaining players bagged and tagged for the night.

The final six players return at 12 p.m. PT tomorrow where they will play down to a winner. Currently, players are guaranteed at least $48,000, but all are eyeing the first-place prize of $200,000 and the 200 PGT points which will be used to determine the PGT PLO Series champion who will receive the PGT Trophy and a $25,000 championship bonus. PGT points will also be used for the year-long leaderboard which will qualify players for the end-of-year PGT Championship $1,000,000 freeroll.
