3rd Place: Aristoteles Neto ($6,389)

Aristoteles Neto was all in preflop holding [Kd][Js] and was up against the [Ac][8s] of Philip Shing. Philip would knock yet another opponent out at this final table when the board ran out [4d][Ts][2d][7c][2s]. Aristoteles will finish this tournament in 3rd place, good for $6,389.

4th Place: Soukha Kachittavong ($5,053)

Soukha Kachittavong was all in preflop holding [7h][7c] and would need to get lucky against Tom Dragone's [Qd][Qc]. Soukha failed to find a seven on the [5c][Kc][9d][Jd][As] board, and he will be eliminated in 4th place, good for $5,053.

5th Place: Welther Marmol ($3,823)

On a [2s][8h][Jc] flop, Welther Marmol was all in holding [Ks][Jh]. Welter's king kicker was no good as Philip Shing held [Ac][Js]. The [2d] turn and [6d] river failed to improve Welther, and he will exit Event #3 in 5th place, good for $3,823.

6th Place: Baruch Thaler ($2,941)

In one of the first few hands at the final table, Baruch Thaler moved all in and was called by Philip Shing. Baruch's [3h][3c] was in bad shape against Philip's [Kd][Kc]. The [Qc][Ac][6d] flop was no help, nor was the [4d] on turn. The [As] hit the river, eliminating Baruch in 6th place, good for $2,941.

August 2015 WSOP Circuit Event - Event #4 - $365 Omaha 8 or better - Returning players

Event #4 is in the money

At 4,000/8,000 blinds, a player was all in for 1,000 in the big blind. Multiple players saw the [6s][Jd][9c] flop, and there was a bet and two callers. The board ran out [7c][Ah] and one player had [9s][9d][5d][3h] to beat the all in player's [Jh][8d][6d][3c]. Event #4 $365 Omaha/8 in the money, and the final 12 will return for Day 2 at 1pm to play down to a winner.

Event #4 is on the bubble

Event #4 $365 Omaha/8 is down to the final 13 players, so play will not end as scheduled.  The tournament staff has decided to let the players play until the money bubble has burst before bagging up for the night. One player has 1,000 in chips remaining, so the bubble likely won't last long.
