WSOP Day 30 - Ahmed Takes Down Event #47

In a battle of the split games Event #47: $2,500 Omaha 8 / Stud 8 was the only tournament to award a WSOP bracelet on day 30.

Another big name made a final table but fell short of a bracelet - this time Michael Mizrachi was in the mix, dominating the play on the final day and getting heads up with eventual winner Owais Ahmed with a big chip lead. Unfortunately for Mizrachi it wasn't to be, and Owais Ahmed won the tournament after a swingy heads up match to take down the bracelet and $255k.

The 'who can 5 or 6 bet the lightest' tournament, otherwise known as Event #46: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed Championship was well underway on day 30, with just 22 players remaining. Well known British online player Chris Moorman made it to heads up against Joe Ebanks after Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier made another deep run, finishing in fourth. The hard stop rule halted play, so the heads up battle will continue on day 31.
