Lexy Gavin Eliminated in 12th Place ($11,596)

Webjoker • Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

Action folded to George Xu on the button and he opened with a raise to 25,000. The small blind folded but big blind Lexy Gavin shoved for 70,000 even.

Xu asked for a count and called.

Lexy Gavin: {J-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{5-Spades}
George Xu: {Q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

The flop of {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{A-Diamonds} wasn't a good one for Gavin and the {7-Spades} on the turn and {4-Clubs} on the river didn't change that anymore.

The tournament is now down to 11 players.

Fayant Fires Twice

• Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

Phil Riley limped from under the gun, Jody Fayant completed his small blind, and Pushpinder Singh checked his option.

The flop came {6-Spades}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and action checked all the way around.

The turn brought the {K-Diamonds} and Fayant announced a pot-sized bet of 36,000. Singh folded and Riley called.

The {A-Diamonds} hit the river and Fayant bet the pot again, which was 108,000 this time. Riley went into the tank for just under half a minute before he ultimately folded and Fayant took the chips.

Victor Ramdin Eliminated in 13th Place ($9,173)

Jared Ingles was first to act and opened by tossing in a 25,000-chip and announcing 'raise'.

Action folded to Victor Ramdin in the cutoff and he announced pot before he moved his stack worth 66,000 forward. The button and blinds folded and Ingles tanked for a bit before he called.

Victor Ramdin: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Jared Ingles: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}

"Ow, you have me in bad shape," Ingles said.

The board, however, favored Ingles as it came {7-Spades}{10-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{8-Spades} and Ingles pointed to his queen and five as Ramdin realized it was all over for him.

"Are you kidding me?" Ramdin said with a wry smile, not sounding too bewildered.

The remaining players are guaranteed $11,596 from here on out.

Bambrick Leads Final 13 Players in Event #30: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha

Ryan Bambrick

Out of the 799 players who took to the felt in pursuit of WSOP gold in Event #30: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha, just 13 remain in contention. Each player is guaranteed a payday of at least $9,173, but all eyes are on the top prize of $217,123.

Leading the way is Ryan Bambrick with 1,727,000 chips. Bambrick won a gigantic pot near the conclusion of Day 2 to eliminate Farid Jattin and become the first player to cross the 1,000,000-chip mark. In fact, Bambrick was the only player to bag a seven-figure stack at the day's end. The next largest stack belongs to Canada's Phil Riley (864,000).

Several familiar faces are still in the hunt; Victor Ramdin (84,000), and Lexy Gavin (80,000) will both return for Day 3 action, but they'll both have work to do, as they're the two shortest stacks by a fair margin. George Xu (180,000), who won this event in 2016, is the only bracelet winner remaining in the field after two-time bracelet winner Scott Clements busted in the final moments of Day 2 play.

A copy of the seat draw can be found below. Keep it here for coverage of the conclusion of Event #30: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha and throughout the 2018 World Series of Poker from the PokerNews Live Reporting team.
