$10K update : Benny Glaser claims second bracelet

Since our last WSOP 2016 article, the $10,000 Omaha Hi/Lo Championship has been played to its finale, with another player claiming his second bracelet of the series. Benny Glaser from the UK managed to best a star studded field of 163 players, to take home USD$407,194 and the bracelet.

He adds an Omaha Hi/Lo Championship bracelet to the $1,500 Omaha Hi/Lo one that he collected in event 26. The irrepressible Jason Mercier was also in the thick of the action once more, eventually falling in 8th place. Todd Brunson also enjoyed a deep run, hitting the rail in 7th. With Ian Johns and Jason Mercier having already scored two victories at the WSOP this year, Benny Glaser now makes three double bracelet winners.

Meanwhile, in other events, the USD$5,000 Six Handed Holdem event is down to the last table, with APT Macau winner Adrien Allain still in contention. Australia’s Alexander Lynskey made it to the final table, but fell 8th. Also in the money in this event:  Joe Hachem (44th) and India’s Aditya Agarwal (75th),

In the Mixed Omaha Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo a familiar name was hunting for his third bracelet. You guessed it – Jason Mercier. He unfortunately fell before the final table (11th).

The $3,000 Six Handed PLO event saw Japanese hopes raised when Hiroshi Tanaka made a deep run, but sadly, he fell in a creditable 23rd place.

The Asian poker community awaits another serious final table sweat for one of their players, with Motohiro Kondo having taken 3rd in event 26.
