Michael Roeseler - 17th Place

Omaha Hi-Low

Michael Roeseler opened for 20,000 from the cutoff and Thomas "Thunder" Keller called from the big blind. When the flop came down {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{10-Spades}, Keller bet 10,000 and Roeseler raised all in for 20,000 total. Keller callled.

Roeseler: {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{6-Hearts}
Keller: {q-Spades}{j-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}

The {8-Hearts} turn was disaster for Roeseler as it gave Keller a straight. The {5-Spades} river failed to give Roeseler a qualifying low and he was dispatched in 17th place.

Omaha Hi-Low

In a battle of the blinds, Mike Leah and Matt Glantz saw the {2-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Hearts} flop and Glantz got the reminder of the stack in. Leah called and they turned over their cards.

Leah: {J-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}
Glantz: {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Hearts}

The {A-Spades} turn and the {3-Clubs} river gave Leah the seven-high straight and the best low to knock out Glantz in 18th place for $7,784.

The Accidental Raise Costs Puchkov

• Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 2,000 ante

Omaha Hi-Low

Mike Leah opened for 20,000 under the gun and action folded to Konstantin Puchkov in the small blind. The Russian went to call but accidentally tossed in an extra 5,000 chip, which as Matt Glantz pointed out constituted a raise. Puchkov wasn't too happy about it, but as Glantz pointed out rules are rules and "it's nothing personal."

Leah made the call and then Puchkov check-called a bet on the {9-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop. When the {7-Clubs} appeared on the turn, Puchkov led out for 20,000 and Leah called. Puchkov fired another bet on the {7-Diamonds} river, but he couldn't shake Leah.

Puchkov tabled the {a-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for not much of anything, and Leah took down the pot with his {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}{7-Hearts} full house.

What began with 470 players in the 2014 World Series of Poker Event #25: $2,500 Omaha/Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low is now down to the final 18. Today, one of them will walk away with the $267,327 first-place prize and a gold bracelet. Right now the man best positioned to do it is no stranger to gold in eight-time bracelet winner Erik Seidel.

Seidel will lead to start today's play with 444,000. However, if he hopes to capture his ninth bracelet he'll have to overcome a tough field that includes Mike Leah (374,000), John Kabbaj (326,000), Joe Tehan (152,000), Tom Schneider (124,000), Robert Mizrachi (110,000), Allyn Jaffrey Shulman (106,000) and Matt Glantz (66,000). Glantz enters as the short stack after walking into the royal flush of Andrey "gigaloff" Zhigalov (197,000) late last night.

Others still in the mix include seven-time WSOP Circuit ring winner Chris Reslock (243,000), who was down to just 4,500 late on Day 2 but managed to spin it up; Day 1 chip leader Fu Wong (224,000); a blast from the past in Thomas "Thunder" Keller (221,000); and WSOP bracelet winners Konstantin Puchkov (106,000) and Owais Ahmed (105,000).

The plan for the day is to play to a winner no matter how long that might take. Cards will be in the air at 2 p.m. local time, which is about an hour from now.
