The preliminary round may be over, but the action is still heating up in WCOOP-73-H: $10,300 PLO [6-Max, Main Event].
There were 38 players coming back after making it through Day 1, and they'll be joined by 12 more last-minute entries, pushing the total to 135 for a prize pool of $1,350,000, just edging past the guarantee of $1,250,000.
Some of those who joined for the first time are top cash player "AmSoGood," Philippe "takechip" D'Auteuil and Henrik "hhecklen" Hecklen. Several players, including Niklas "Lena900" Astedt and Jorryt "TheCleaner11" van Hoof are on bullet No. 2, while Andrew "Clockwyze" Pantling and Joao "Naza114" Vieira opted to get in there on their third and final shells.
The prize pool is now set, and $283,368 will go to the winner.
They'll resume at 6,000/12,000 blinds and play 30-minute levels until just seven remain, at which point they'll break again for the streamed final table on Day 3.
