This specialty event attracted 402 runners. The prize pool in Event #46 $2,500 Mixed Omaha 8/Stud 8 was $904,500, which is not too shabby all things considered. Daniel Ospina was seeking another bracelet, but the pro from Colombia settled on a third-place finish.
Phil Ivey made a cameo in this event. But good ole No Home Jerome bricked this event. Daniel Negreanu also took another shot at a bracelet, but Kid Poker went home emptied handed. He busted before the money bubble.
Day 3 of this three-day event started with 15 players. Ian Shaw bagged up the chip lead. Alas, Shaw could not go wire-to-wire on the final day. He'd secure a spot at the final table, but he would not go all the way to the promised land.
On Day 3, Cyndy Violette busted early and her quest for a bracelet ended in 13th place.
French pro Paul-Francois Tedeschi went deep, but missed the final table by a single spot. Tedeschi bubbled off the final table in tenth place.
Daniel Ospina took down Event #14 2-7 Low Ball nearly three weeks ago. He made a second final table this summer, but his run ended in third place.
Once Ospina bounced, this bracelet came down to a heads-up battle between David Brookshire and Brendan Taylor. Brookshire had some finishing experience with a WSOP Circuit ring to his credit, while Taylor was trying to win his second piece of bling.
When the dust settled, Taylor hit the rail in second place. Taylor earned $132,443 for a runner-up finish.
Brookshire won his first bracelet and $214K in cash.
