Event #20: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha
Days:
123

Thanks for Coming

They say Pot Limit Omaha is a volatile game, and it didn't take long for first blood to be drawn today. Admittedly, Stephen Burke was short with 16,100, but when he found himself all in with {A-}{A-}{3-}{6-} versus {K-}{K-}{3-}{4-}, he wouldn't have expected to be propping up the Bad Bead Bar after just one hand. But, of course, the Poker Gods work in mysterious ways, and after a {7-}{6-}{2-}{2-} board, the dealer duly popped a third king on the river to send Burke hurtling towards the rail.

Bubble Nearing

We are just 14 spots away from the money to start the day, so we presume that play will begin somewhat slowly.

Once the bubble bursts however, the pots could fly at a rapid rate.

Day 2

Day 2 is only a half hour away for Event #20: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha and we're all set for the action!

Jonathan Little is our chip leader with 95 players remaining. He has 129,600 chips followed by Christian Harder (116,100 chips) and Matt Zoorob (115,400 chips).

All eyes will be on Jason Mercier and Steve "pikappraider" Burkholder though as they try and return to the final table. The two went heads up in this event last year and Mercier took down the bracelet and $237,462. Burkholder took second and $146,748.

Mercier and Burkholder are a bit short at the moment so we shall see how far they can go.

Play will resume at 2:30 p.m. PST here in the Amazon Room and we are scheduled to play down to a final table. We hope you join us for this and every event at the 2010 World Series of Poker right here at PokerNews.com!
