Razz

Richard Ashby completed and Ben Yu raised. The action got back to Ashby who called, then on fourth street Ashby bet out and Yu called. Yu then folded on fifth, leaving himself with just 19,000 chips.

Ashby: {X-}{X-} / {7-}{8-}{2-}
Yu: {X-}{X-} / {A-}{Q-}{8-} --fold

Two hands later Calvin Anderson had the bring-in and Daniel Negreanu completed. Richard Sklar and Ashby called and Yu tossed in the call as well, keeping just 2,000 chips left behind. On fourth street Negreanu and Sklar checked to Ashby who bet, Yu called all in, and both Negreanu and Sklar called as well.

On fifth Ashby bet again and that got the two other players to fold.

Negreanu: {X-}{X-} / {A-}{4-}{K-} --fold
Sklar: {X-}{X-} / {8-}{6-}{10-} --fold
Ashby: {A-}{9-} / {4-}{3-}{6-}{7-} / {Q-}
Yu: {5-}{2-} / {7-}{10-}{Q-}{2-} / {A-}

Yu was drawing dead on sixth street against Ashby's seven-six when his deuce paired up, and Ashby raked in the pot to cut the field to 19 players.

More For Sklar

• Level 21

Omaha 8

On a flop of {Q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{7-Hearts}, Richard Sklar checked over to Richard Ashby who tapped the table as well. Ben Yu fired out a bet and both players called. Fourth street was the {6-Diamonds} and Sklar moved all in for his last 15,000. Both Ashby and Yu moved out a call.

The {Q-Diamonds} paired the board on the river and both Ashby and Yu checked.

"Ace-queen!" boomed Sklar, standing up from his chair and slapping {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} down on the table.

Yu rolled over {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{3-Hearts} before his cards were pulled into the muck. Ashby's cards were mucked as well and Sklar scooped up the pot. He's now sitting at 150,000 in chips. Ashby has fallen to 340,000 while Yu has dropped to 90,000.

Omaha 8

Calvin Anderson raised under the gun and Glenn Cozen, on his immediate left, moved all in for just 7,000 chips. Cozen, who finished second in the 1993 WSOP Main Event, had been on the losing side of many hands, and now he was up against two players for his tournament life as Ben Yu called from the big blind.

The flop came {7-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and Yu check-called a bet from Anderson. The {9-Spades} turn and {7-Spades} river were then both checked.

Yu showed {J-Spades}{10-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, Anderson tabled {A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{X-Hearts}, and Cozen did not win the hand as he showed {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}.

Who Will Become The H.O.R.S.E. Champion?

[user20283]
Number 7 Looms For Daniel Negreanu
Number 7 Looms For Daniel Negreanu

That is the big question today as the 21 hopefuls remain with a chance to win one of the most coveted bracelets of the summer. The $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. championship is led by high-stakes cash game player Tommy Hang who has come close to winning a bracelet almost every year since 2007. Hang has five World Series of Poker final tables under his belt and today he's one of the favorites to take this one down.

Hang's competition is fierce with mixed game specialist Randy Ohel in second place. Ohel's last eight WSOP cashes came in seven different variations of the game and with a Limit 2-7 Triple Draw bracelet under his belt he knows what it takes to be the last one standing.

One of the contenders today is Glenn Cozen. While Cozen might not be the most recognizable face in poker, he got closer than any of the remaining players to winning the WSOP Main Event. Back in 1993 Cozen finished second to Jim Bechtel for $420,000 in the Main Event that had 220 entries that year.

Christopher Wallace, currently in third place, eyes his first WSOP final table, while the only other player left in the field who has never made it that far in a tournament here is Richard Sklar. Sklar is in last place, but anything can happen with the volatility of limit games.

Out of the 21 players that remain, 11 of them already have one or more bracelets. Daniel Negreanu leads the way with six bracelets while Nick Kost, one of the short stacks coming into today, won his first gold just a week ago in the $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo.

So there you have it ladies and gentleman! Watch out for all the aforementioned but don't count out top pros David Benyamine, Bertrand Grospellier, Nick Schulman, Richard Ashby, Max Pescatori, Bill Chen, Bruno Fitoussi and John Cerntuo who have all been there before.

Live coverage starts at 2:00 p.m. PST and we will make sure you will get all the live updates throughout the epic conclusion of this event.
