It was a frantic and fast-paced day in Event #37: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha that would see the money bubble burst shortly before play ended for the night. When all was said and done, Brandon Paster was our chip leader ending the day with 135,300 in chips. He was followed closely by bracelet winner Fabrice Soulier who bagged an impressive 129,300. Rounding out the top three is Michael Wang who scooped a huge pot near the end of the night and ended with 113,900 in chips. Lurking nearby is the dangerous Erick Lindgren who would finish with a stack of 100,000.
Other notables to move on to the second day were Bryan Micon (16,600), David Paredes (34,200), Mark Gregorich (9,300), Kevin Saul (24,700), Will Durkee (24,300), Joe Stiers (44,200), Vinny Pahuja (12,900), Layne Flack (37,500), Taylor Paur (85,000), Galen Hall (45,500), and Humberto Brenes (11,900). This would be Brenes's eighth cash of the 2014 WSOP.
