Only one gold bracelet was won on the 26th of June. The American player Nathan Gamble won Event # 46: $1,500 PLO Hi-Lo 8 or Better. The tournament was attended by 830 players, and Gamble spent most of the playing time in the depths of the leaderboard. Nathan began to show his best game only on the decisive day. Starting the finals with the leader stack, Gamble passed it in a single burst, almost leaving no chance to the opponents. By the time Gamble was left alone with Adam Hendrix, he had got 90% of the chips. During the first hand of heads-up Hendrix's pocket pair could not resist 3 overcards, and Gamble finally achieved the victory.
Gamble: K Q J 8
Hendrix: 4 T T 2
Board: 8 J 3 8 K
Nathan’s last best result in live tournaments was the 174th place in the Main Event last year. This time he earned a record-setting prize amounting to $223,339, while Adam received $137,992 for the second place. This tournament also influenced on the leaderboard in the race for the title of the best player of the series. Having finished on the third place, Ray Henson scored 135.5 points and outranked James Obst. Now he occupies the first place (531 points). Ryan Hughes falls just 1 point behind Henson, while Obst has not scored any points after taking the seventh place in Event #36 and dropped to the third line (509 points). Alex Foxen (491 points) rose to the top five, and Daniel Negreanu (488 points) remained on the fifth place thanks to the 18th place in the ongoing Seven-Card Stud Championship. It is interesting, that this year only Obst was the only one among top five players who won the bracelet. However, Hughes and Foxen are leaders in getting prizes (11 and 10 times respectively). If the situation does not change, then the title of the Player of the Year for the first time ever will be awarded to a player, who has won none of the tournaments (for the first time the POY prize was awarded in 2004).
