Another day at the 2011 World Series of Poker is in the books and this one wraps up Day 2 of Event #42: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship. When the day began, 156 players remained. After a full ten levels of action today, 38 remain.
If that number 38 seems a little odd, that's because it is. Due to the ten-level hard-stop rule at the WSOP this year, this event finished Day 2 just two spots off of the money. Tomorrow is going to be a very long day by the looks of things. First, the money bubble will come, followed by a long run to the final table and then onto a winner.
Leading the charge into Day 3 is Ben Lamb with 809,000 in chips. Earlier in this WSOP, Lamb placed second in the $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha event for $259,918. Who beat him? Young superstar Sam Stein did to claim the $420,802 first-place prize and he's still in this one as well. Stein sits in third place at the end of the day with 646,000 in chips. Could these two gets heads up again? You'll just have to wait and see.
Plenty of other notables remain including Sami Kelopuro (728,000), Will Failla (528,000), Matt Glantz (400,000), Dario Alioto (206,000) and Davidi Kitai (158,000). Team PokerStars Pros Alex Kravchenko (152,000) and Humberto Brenes (70,000) have also advanced to Day 3, but are towards the bottom of the pack. Brenes will be the shortest stack returning for play on Sunday.
Play is scheduled to resume tomorrow at 3:00 PM PT and you can follow the action right here on PokerNews all day long. We'll see you then. Until then, get some rest, tomorrow's going to be a long one.
