Event #42: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship

Day 2 Completed

Day 2 Concludes with Lamb on Top

Level 18 : 4,000/8,000, 0 ante
Ben Lamb leads the charge
Ben Lamb leads the charge

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.

Ingles Out

Level 18 : 4,000/8,000, 0 ante

Sam Stein and Jared Ingles got all the money in preflop. Ingles held the {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}{J-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Stein the {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{9-Spades}{8-Hearts}. The board ran out {9-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{A-Hearts} and Stein won the hand. He had Ingles covered, which sent Ingles out the door in 39th place.

We must also mention that the ten-level rule may not be in full effect tonight. The floor staff has informed the players that if they get down to 37, they'll play until the money is reached, which is when 36 players remain. That means we could lose one more player and then be on the bubble for a while until the bubble breaks.

McMahan Eliminated

William McMahan was all in on the {Q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs} flop and called by Tristan Clemencon. McMahan held the {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs} and Clemencon the {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}. The turn was the {K-Hearts} and the river the {Q-Diamonds}, which gave Clemencon a full house after he flopped two pair and allowed him to win the hand. McMahan was eliminated on the hand in 40th place.

AAAlioto Doubles

Level 18 : 4,000/8,000, 0 ante

After one limper, Matt Glantz raised to 30,000. From the small blind, Dario Alioto did his best acting job, looking pained as he potted to 106,000. The limper folded, and Glantz headed to the bottom of a well. "Please don't bust me," begged Alioto. And a minute or two later, "I'll show you. Come on." Glantz said he was just going through the math. He determined he could call. The flop was dealt {a-Clubs}{10-Spades}{4-Hearts}, and Glantz put Alioto in for his last 51,000. Alioto called.

Alioto: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}
Glantz: {k-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{6-Spades}

The {4-Clubs} turn gave Alioto a boat and ended his sweat. He doubled to 316,000, leaving Glantz around 235,000.

Langmann Doubles, Man

Action folded to Florian Langmann on the button. He was currently the shortest stack in the room and raised the pot to 28,000. Adeeb Harb made the call from the small blind and Felipe Ramos folded from the big blind.

Langmann and Harb went to the flop of {9-Hearts}{3-Spades}{3-Diamonds} and Harb bet 32,000 to put Langmann all in. Langmann called all in for that exact amount and the hands were revealed.

Langmann: {Q-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}
Harb: {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

The turn was the {10-Hearts} and river the {2-Spades}, giving Langmann the win and the much-needed double up.
