The 2017 WSOP hit an unexpected snag last night when the final table of Event #9 $10,000 Omaha 8 needed an extra day to complete the three-day event. Daniel Negreanu is heads up with Abe Mosseri for the bracelet, but Negreanu trails 2-1 in chips. Negreanu also has numerous bracelet prop bets on the line. Only one player stands in his way for winning his first one of the season and seventh in his career. Meanwhile, the Colossus III is down to the final table with $1 million at stake for first place.

Kid Poker is within striking distance of winning his seventh-career bracelet. Daniel Negreanu currently has 6 WSOP bracelets with numerous proposition wagers on whether he will win one or more this summer at the 2017 WSOP. Negreanu made the final table of Event #9 $10,000 Omaha8 Championship. However, with three remaining, the final table surpassed the allotted time amount. The event should have stopped, but the TD allowed an extra "courtesy" level because all three players insisted on playing down to a champ, plus Yarron Bendor had a 6am flight to catch. During that bonus level, Yarron Bendor busted in third place, setting up a heads-up battle between Abe Mosseri and Daniel Negreanu.

Action got stopped with Mosseri holding a 2-1 edge. The final table resumes today with Negreanu within striking distance of bling #7.

Wednesday will be a big day at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas with at least 4 bracelets up for grabs. In addition to the Negreanu/Mosseri bout, there are two other final tables set and a third on the cusp of one. The Colossus III is finally down to the final nine and place gets a guaranteed $1 million. Also, the Tag Team event is down to the final table. Plus the 6-max Dealer's Choice event is down to nine players with David 'Gunslinger' Bach in the lead. The Dealers Chouce final table will play down to a champion on Wednesday.

Four bracelets on hump day. Let's get to it!
