With two bracelets on the summer and four for his career, Tom Schneider is deep in another event, this time the $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha.

An abundance of gold is up for grabs on Day 23 of the 2013 WSOP. Three bracelets will be awarded before the lights dim for the night in the Amazon room with the final tables in the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em Six-Max, $2,500 Razz and $1,000 Turbo No Limit Hold’em all underway.

The Six-Max is down to five with Erick Lindgren in the lead. Bryan Campanello is ahead of the last six players in the Razz tournament and Daniel Bishop is out in front of the final eight in the Turbo.

A field of only 73 remains in the $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha with players on the stone bubble. The first round of the $1,500 No Limit Hold’em Shootout is playing out and Bertrand Grospellier and Tim Adams are a few of the players who have bested their tables and snapped up a seat in Round Two. Elsewhere, the field in the second Limit Hold’em tournament of the summer, the $5,000 Limit Hold’em, is stacking up.

$5,000 No Limit Hold’em Six-Max

A mere five players remain in the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em Six-Max and Erick Lindgren continues to hold the chiplead. Lindgren finished sixth in this same event at the 2010 WSOP. While Lindgren hopes to finish better than sixth, he is mainly focused on playing his best and letting the results be what they will.

“I finished sixth a few years ago so I will try to improve on that today. I feel awesome, I’ve put in the time and been working so hard,” Lindgren said. “I’ve been having more fun playing than I ever had before and I’m having more fun in life in general. Whatever happens today it doesn’t really matter. I’m just going to play my best and have fun.”

Trailing Lindgren for the chiplead is former World Poker Tour champion Lee Markholt with Jonathan Little, Vasile Buboi and Connor Drinan rounding out the final five players.

The final seven players were moved to the Mothership Stage and it only took one hand for the unofficial table to become the official final table. A short-stacked Andrew Robl called Little’s 32,000 raise on the button from the big blind to see a flop of J 9 6. Robl checked, Little fired out a bet of 30,000, Robl moved all in for his last 114,000 and Little insta-called. Roble showed J 3 and was far behind Little’s K K. The board completed 5 7 to send Robl packing.
