In a story-filled tiebreaker, all eyes will be on Erik Seidel in Game 60: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw. A former WSOP champion, the veteran is targeting his first live tournament title since 2007. At the end of the third day, he was second with 3,065,000 in chips and about 31 big blinds.
He joins Brad Ruben (4,265,000). If he wins, he will claim his fifth bracelet in less than two years, a feat achieved only by Jeremy Osmus. The pro’s wins will also match that of one of his rivals, star Jason Mercier (2,565,000). The former PokerStars Pro is currently third with 24 BBS.
The other two finalists never won at the WSOP. Earlier this year’s PCA Main Event winner Mike Watson (2,350,000) has already been defeated in five heads-up matches. Jon Turner (1,390,000) is now on his 15th FT. The American also has an impressive 102 ITMs.
