The penultimate day of Event #48: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low has come to an end after 10 levels of play. The day started with 157 hopefuls vying for an in-the-money finish, which only 117 of them would get. After 10 levels of play on Day 2, 11 remained with their sights set on World Series of Poker gold.

The chip leader at the end of the night was two-time WSOP bracelet winner Scott Clements. Clements bagged up 699,000 to lead the pack, and would be considered an Omaha expert. Both of his two bracelets came in the game — one in limit Omaha hi-low and one in pot-limit Omaha — and then he has a second-place, seventh-place, and ninth-place finish in limit Omaha hi-low, a third-place finish in pot-limit Omaha hi-low, and a fifth-place finish in pot-limit Omaha.

Three-time WSOP gold bracelet winner Jeff Madsen (654,000) finished in second place overall. One of his three bracelets came in last year's Event #35: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha, so he knows a thing or two about four-card poker, and then you've got Dylan Wilkerson (552,000) and Tyler Patterson (425,000) rounding out the top four.

And then, of course, you've got Tom Schneider still in the mix, and he boasts quite a record at the WSOP. With four WSOP gold bracelets and 33 cashes at the Series, Schneider will be as tough as any to remove from this tournament as he chases bracelet number five.

Derek Raymond, the fourth gold bracelet winner remaining, will enter the final day with 419,000 in chips. Raymond won the most coveted piece of jewelry in all of poker back in 2009 when he took down the $2,500 Omaha Hi-Low event to the tune of $229,192.

Jared Koppel Eliminated in 12th Place ($15,278)

• Līmenis 20: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante
Jared Koppel
Jared Koppel

With the board showing {8-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Spades}, Jared Koppel and J.R. Flournoy would get it all in and Flournoy was at risk holding {A-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for a low draw and nut flush draw while Koppel held {Q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for a set of threes. The turn was the {2-Diamonds} giving Flournoy a wheel and the river card, the {5-Spades} changed nothing and Flournoy doubled up to 375,000 while Koppel was left with 30,000.

Koppel would triple that up the very next hand but a few moments later he would limp in from the small blind, Tyler Patterson would make it 36,000 to go from the big blind and Koppel would call. When the flop came {K-Spades}{J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}, Koppel moved all in and was quickly called by Patterson who had flopped a Broadway straight with {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}{9-}{2-}. Koppel had full house outs with his {J-Spades}{10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} but the turn was the {7-Spades} and the river was the {8-Hearts} and Koppel was eliminated in 12th place for $15,278.

Brubaker Doubles Through Wilkerson Twice

• Līmenis 20: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

In the first hand, Brian Brubaker raised to 26,000, Dylan Wilkerson raised pot, Brubaker raised all in, and Wilkerson called putting him at risk.

Brubaker: {a-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{a-Clubs}
Wilkerson: {a-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

The board ran out {q-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades}{j-Spades} and Brubaker scooped up the double.

We missed the action during the second double up, but the dealer was counting Brubaker's stack and Wilkerson was matching it.

Three hands ago, Brubaker had 50,000...

• Līmenis 20: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante
David Schnettler - 13th Place
David Schnettler - 13th Place

Tom Schneider opened to 23,000, David Schnettler raised pot, and Schneider made the call. The two went heads up to a {7-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{4-Clubs} flop and Schnettler led out with all in bet for his last 20,000. Schneider called, putting Schnettler at risk.

Schnettler: {10-Spades}{j-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Schneider: {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{5-Spades}

The turn brought the {q-Hearts}, followed by the {9-Diamonds} on the river. Schneider's aces and queens was best and Schnettler hit the rail.
