Big Rob headed into the final table of the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha World Championship second in chips, but quickly grinded his way into control of the table.
No easy feat considering it contained the likes of 10-time Chip Jett and the loved by hundreds, hated by thousands Raymond Davis to get there.
Bac sucked out on the river to make two pair on the final hand playing Hold'em, but his chip lead was so large it was really only a matter of time.
Alex Bolotin made another fine showing in a WSOP event, busting out just before the final table bubble in the $1,500 re-buy event. This guy has played so well at the WSOP this year he's a good bet to win a bracelet before long.
Bolotin just missed another final table, but the man in the PokerListings.com shirt did not. Arnold Spee, who has been faithfully wearing the tidy black Pokerlistings.com dress shirts since the team gave him a few, will go into the final table of Event 52 No-Limit Hold'em w/re-buys with around $760,000 in chips, a few less than chip boss Michael Graves and his $1.2 million.
The presence of Chad Batista and Issac Haxton, who had words after Haxton sucked out on Batista late in Day 2, should make for an entertaining final table despite it being played behind the black curtains in the Bluff Sequestrium. PokerListings.com will be there and bring you all the updates you'll ever want live from the tape delayed feed starting at 3 p.m.
The other final table going Wednesday is the Limit Shootout. Event 53 was supposed to play down to the final table of eight, but with only 13 bust outs in the first four levels of round two, Harrah's made the wise decision to shut it down at 2 a.m. and will bring the players back Wednesday to finish round two and play the finale.
Keep it locked on PokerListings.com for all the action on Wednesday as the $5,000 2-7 Triple-Draw Lowball kicks off as well. It's the last one before the big one and should be a good one! Yes that's right, the Main Event looms just around the corner so get ready to crown another king of the donkeys!
