Event #47: $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low-8 or Better

End of Day of the Event #47: $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low-8 or Better

• Level 18
Michael Mizrachi

Play has now finished today in the Mixed Split event with 22 players remaining from the initial 201 that started today's event. The familiar sight of Michael Mizrachi leads the way with 407,000 chips after a late surge saw him shoot up to the top of the tree as the blinds increased to quite a hefty amount. Day 1 leader Abe Mosseri is in second place with 303,000, a decent way behind.

Mizrachi will be joined by a tough looking field that includes Barry Greenstein, Richard Ashby and Scotty Nguyen, all of whom will be looking to add another bracelet to their collection. However on the last hand we lost Ben Yu meaning we'll only have three tables of seven players.

A lot of top names were still in when the tournament restarted today including Mike Sexton, Galen Hall, Pat Pezzin, Shaun Deeb, Mike Matusow and Tom Dwan but all failed to cash. Michael Binger, Stuart Rutter, Jerry Buss and Josh Arieh fared better, more than doubling their money but none of them made it through to Day 3.

Play will restart tomorrow at 3pm and PokerNews will be following all the action from then, we'll see you then!
