Two-time bracelet winner Scott BigRiskkyClements (pictured) leads the way with a stack of 699,000, ahead of second place Jeff Madsen, who has three bracelets of his own. Clements’ last one came in 2007 in a Pot Limit Omaha event for $194,000, while his other piece of hardware came in 2006 in an Omaha Hi-Low Split tournament and was good for $301,000. He’ll look to make it three Omaha bracelets on Thursday.

Clements busted Ryan Paulf on Wednesday during one of his key hands. Paulf showed Ac-5h-6d-Ad, while Clements had As-Kh-4h-3d. When the board ran out 3h-3s-6s-2h-Qd, Clements scooped the entire pot, winning the high and low, sent Paulf out the door in 15th place, and boosted his own stack by 113,000. Clements also sent Jeffrey Amasaki to the rail in 21st after hitting two pair in a hand that didn’t have a qualifying low.

The longtime PocketFiver has $3.5 million in online scores, the largest of which was worth nearly $300,000 and came by virtue of a win in an FTOPS Two-Day Event in 2011. He has FTOPS and SCOOP titles and has also taken down the Sunday Million, Sunday 500, and Hotter $55 on PokerStars, just to name a few. He won the WPT’s North American Poker Championships in 2007 for $1.5 million.

Two tables will reconvene on Thursday to play down to a winner, who will bag $270,000. Here’s how the field stacks up:

1. Scott BigRiskky Clements – 699,000
2. Jeff Madsen – 654,000

Meanwhile, the $50,000 Poker Player’s Championship is down to its final eight players, with Brandon Shack-Harris leading the way with a stack of 4.1 million, well out in front of the 3.4 million belonging to Abe Mosseri. If you’ve never heard of Shack-Harris, he won a bracelet last year in a Pot Limit Omaha event and has turned in a second place and a third place in WSOP tournaments already this year. Mosseri has cashed once at this year’s WSOP and will look to capture his second career bracelet.

It’s worth noting that Melissa Burr, who will enter the final table in seventh place, is the first woman ever to cash in the Poker Player’s Championship. The New Jersey poker community member has been on a tear so far this year, making two final tables and logging three top-10 finishes.

Here’s how the final table of the 2014 WSOP Poker Player’s Championship looks:
