Andrey Zhigalov

This "horsemanet" final table featured one of the best Omaha 8 players in the world in Scott "BigRiskky" Clements. The two-time bracelet winner also has a WSOP Ring on his impressive resume. He also got $3.2 million in career tournament earnings.

Clements has final tabled at least once WSOP every year since the summer of 2011, although he hasn't won a bracelet since 2007. He won his first piece of bling in 2006 with a victory in $3,000 Omaha 8. In 2007, he shipped his second bracelet with a win in a PLO donkament.

BigRiskky was seeking his third-career bracelet, but Clements' run ended when he was knocked out in seventh place. He'll have to wait another day to win bling numero tres.

When Day 3 concluded, Andrey Zhigalov and Timothy Frazin were still alive and amidst a heads-up battle. Action got suspended and they came back to play for a fourth day. At that point. they had sparred for a couple of hours without any end in sight.
