William Leffingwell
William Leffingwell is wearing the WSOP bracelet he won this summer in $1,500 Mixed Omaha Hi-Lo.

During a round of PLO-8, William Leffingwell raised from the hijack to 70,000, and Sam Sternfield called from the cutoff.

The flop came 9c8c6d, and Leffingwell got it all in for his last 170,000 or so.

Sternfield:  Ad8d8h4s  (set of eights, 8-6-4 low draw)
Leffingwell:  AhAc9s5h  (pair of aces, pair of nines, gutshot straight draw 8-6-5 draw)

The turn card was the 10d, the river card was the 2h, and Sternfield scooped the pot with a set of eights for the high and an 8-6-4 for the low to eliminate Leffingwell in seventh place.

Sam Sternfield  –  1,095,000  (55 bb)
William Leffingwell  –  Eliminated in 7th Place  ($2,590)

With six players remaining, the average chip stack is around 465,000 (23 big blinds), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $3,000 each.
