Event #48: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low

Day 2 of Event #48: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low to Start Soon

Tyler Patterson is lurking at the top of the chip counts

A field of 991 hopefuls was whittled down to just 152 yesterday in Event #48: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low and those players will be taking their seats within the next hour as the money bubble looms. Only 117 will be paid, meaning 35 players returning today will walk away empty-handed. Leading the way is Cale Maclean with 130,300 in chips with notables like Jeff Madsen (97,000) and Tyler Patterson (99,100) lurking close by. There is a pack of players sitting within striking distance as well, including Yueqi "Rich" Zhu (99,800), Sonny Osman (99,600), Michel Abecassis (91,000), and Dmitrii Valouev (88,900).

A little bit further down the leaderboard but still in contention are Scott Clements, David Chiu, Ben Yu, Tom Schneider, Eric Baldwin, Maria Ho, Steven Wolansky, Joe Hachem, Matt Waxman, Joe Serock, and Phil Ivey. Ivey enters today with only one cash this summer (a 22nd-place finish in the $1,500 PLHE tournament) and will be looking to improve upon what has certainly been a disappointing WSOP.

Will he make a deep run? Those and more questions will be answered over the course of the day. PokerNews will be here to provide those answers while relating all of the exciting Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low action, so make sure to follow along!
