Steven Loube Eliminated in 19th Place ($14,693)

Steven Loube - 19th Place

Scott Clements opened to 19,000 from under the gun and Ashton Griffin made the call before Steven Loube moved all in from the big blind for roughly 80,000 after doubling on the first hand of the day against Mike Sexton. Clements re-potted and Griffin tossed his cards to the muck.

Clements: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}
Loube: {6-Spades}{5-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Hearts}

The {10-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop connected with Clements and gave Loube only backdoor outs to a flush, straight or trips, and when the {K-Clubs} came on the turn, he would be drawing dead as the {J-Clubs} completed the board on the river to send him out in 19th.

Double for Loube

Shamus • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

On the first hand of the day, Steven Loube raised the pot from under the gun, leaving himself but 9,000 behind, and it folded around to Mike Sexton in the big blind.

"Well, I've had worse hands," said Sexton as he checked his cards, and after a bit more thought made the call.

Loube had a good one — {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} — while Sexton had {Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. Loube's hand got even better quickly when the flop came {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{K-Diamonds} to give him a full house. "You're off to a good start," said Sexton as the {6-Diamonds} turn and {A-Spades} river fell, and Loube scored the double-up.

Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino and the 2013 World Series of Poker for Day 3 of the Event #35: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha!

640 players took to the felt to play this four-card game full of wraps, rundowns and counterfeits several days ago, and now just 19 individuals remain looking to capture the gold bracelet and $384,420 first prize.

Already guaranteed $11,915 in prize money, the likes of Christian Harder (230,000), Mike Sexton (242,000), Jarred Solomon (259,000), Jason DeWitt (344,000), Ashton Griffin (352,000) and Scott Clements (534,000) all outlasted Tom Schneider (60th), Jared Bleznick (31st), Andrey Pateychuk (30th), Steve Sung (29th), Phil Hellmuth (26th), Jonathan Duhamel (24th) and Will Failla (23rd) who all fell to the rail before the close of play.

However the remaining players are all chasing two-time bracelet winner and 2006 WSOP Player of the Year Jeff Madsen who bagged an impressive 922,000 in the wee hours of the morning. Madsen - who has one cash this series - has now locked up his 29th WSOP cash and will be looking at improving on his previous best Pot-Limit Omaha result which was a 4th place at the 2010 WSOP Europe £5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha event for £52,542.

The remaining 19 players will line-up as follows today:
