With two-thirds of the field out the door on Day 1, the contenders list has been cut to 152 in Event #54: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low. Two-time bracelet winner Brett Shaffer leads the pack with 97,900, but plenty of notables are going to be hot on his heels today.
George Danzer (75,400), Andy Bloch (72,600), Robert Mizrachi (60,100), Amnon Filippi (54,000), Perry Green (37,500), Fabrice Soulier (37,200), and Eddie Blumenthal (34,600) all come into the day toting above average chip counts, while plenty more lurk in the depths, hoping to emerge with the right run of cards and a friendly table draw.
Play will begin at Level 9 (400/800) and go for 10 levels. Players will receive 20-minute breaks every two levels, along with a 60-minute dinner break. Cards are scheduled to be in the air at 2 p.m., so don't go anywhere.
