Do you like pot-limit Omaha? How about pot-limit Texas hold’em? If you answered yes to both, then ,boy, do we have the event for you. Day 3 of Event #39 $2,500 PLH/PLO will begin with the final 22 players of a 606-player field, each looking to make the final table and play their way to a WSOP gold bracelet.

Leading the way is David Lestock, who bagged up 452,000 last night. Hot on his heels are Kyle Zartman and Cameron New, who bagged 450,000 and 448,000 respectively. They will be joined by a number of notables who’ve more than proved their talents at this year’s WSOP, including Omaha beast Scott Clements, former bracelet winner Rami Boukai; consummate grinder David “ODB” Baker; the always-entertaining Carter Gill; and the 2005 WSOP Main Event Champion, Joe Hachem.

Action is set to kickoff at 3:00 PM PST, which is just over a half an hour from now. The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be at the Rio all day long to bring you all the action and eliminations as we look to crown the latest WSOP Champion.
