521 players tried their luck at the 60th event of the World Series of Poker: the $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better. Fourteen of them got to return on the third and final day, with Brandon Shack-Harris chasing his second bracelet of these series.

Phillip Pen was the first player to leave the final table, his two pair 8's and 3's were no good against Kalro's Q's and 6's. Pen finished in 9th place for $10,330. Shortly after Calvin Anderson ran into Shack-Harris' wheel to finish in 8th place for $13,452. Jameson Painter then finished in 7th for $17,855.
When the players were six-handed, Prociak started to dominate by eliminating Kalro in 6th place for $24,148. Not long after Livingston busted Russo in 5th for $33,263, but couldn't get his chips to work, he was eliminated himself a few hands later by Prociak.
Monnette started the three-way action with just a few big bets, and found his Waterloo when his couldn't beat Prociak's . Monnette finished third for $66,601.
Prociak and Shack-Harris started the heads-up play with almost even stacks, but after half an hour of play Prociak had Shack-Harris all-in for his tournament life. Prociak's was enough against Shack-Harris' , who had to settle for second place for $96,750. The $156,546 and the golden bracelet were for David Prociak, winning his first bracelet and his biggest WSOP-cash by far.
