Erick Lindgren has another chance to win his second World Series of Poker bracelet on Sunday, as he is the chip leader of the $50k H.O.R.S.E. event heading into the final day. Lindgren currently possesses a chip stack of around 3.68 million, which is about 150k more than his closest competitor, Scotty Nguyen.
Other familiar names will be participating at the final table of this event on Sunday. Barry Greenstein is also in the hunt for his second bracelet of 2008, as he enters the final table with a stack of around 1.95 million. Lyle Berman has about 1.43 million, and Huck Seed has 1.2 million in chips. Matt Glantz, Patrick Bueno and Michael DeMichele also battled their way through four days of play to earn a seat at the final table.
Many top names were eliminated on the fourth day of play. Doyle Brunson was eliminated in 16th place, collecting $124k for his efforts. Andy Bloch, in the hunt for his first World Series of Poker bracelet, finished in 15th place, collecting the same amount as Brunson.
Daniel Negreanu, near the top of the leaderboard heading into the fourth day of play, faltered and ended up being eliminated in 13th place for $142k. Phil Ivey, desperate to win a bracelet in order to catch up in some of his bracelet bets, was eliminated in 12th place.
The remaining eight players will be battling for the $1.989 million dollar first place prize and coveted WSOP bracelet. All eight players are guaranteed at least $230k for making the final table. Will a player with experience in the "Big Game", such as Huck Seed or Barry Greenstein, take down the $50k H.O.R.S.E. title? Or will it be someone like Matt Glantz or Patrick Bueno? Or will Lindgren maintain his chip lead and take down his second WSOP bracelet?
The final table of this event will begin on Sunday afternoon.
